You cannot quite make out the carbon fibre in the interior shots, but it's there. The G7 Facelift 6-6 Sedans actually have more carbon fibre than the 6-6 Coupe.

There is no full HFP kit for the Facelift cars (2006-2007).

You can get the HFP suspension, and there is a front lip available, as you see in the pictures.

The suspension visiaully will appear to lower the rear too much...but it does work fine on the road.

As with any suspension modification that lowers the car, a very good four-wheel laser alignment is essential, and you need to make sure that the person doing it understands that it's a factory kit and that you really do know what you're doing.

The wheels are 17x8 +45 TL-S wheels. They are a perfect fit for the G7 Accord, allowing you to use good 235-45-17 tyres. The wheels are also usually very cheap because Acura drivers will very often replace their wheels.

It was only available on the 2006 and 2007 model years. It's an interesting car, and has some unique properties. One little example is that the 6-6 Sedan has more carbon fibre on the inside than the 6-6 Coupe has.

For some reason the leather on the 6-6 Sedan is not perforated the way it is on the Coupe.


If you look closely at the seats, you can see they are perforated, whereas the leather on the Sedan picture above is of solid leather.

The Sedan has extra carbon fibre inserts on the doors, whereas the Coupe just has plain plastic.

The steering wheels are obviously different, too.

Where'd you get it?

How do you like it? Do you think you'll still like it in the 100 degree heat? That's why Honda designed the leather wrapped ****, so that it look a certain way but still didn't sear your hand in the summer.

I got it from HandAaccessories, it was the cheapest place I could find it, still not too bad, only about $75 after 2-day shipping to Hawaii. I like it much better than the stock ****, a bit easier to shift since it sits a little higher on the lever.

I haven't had to deal with the heat too much, I usually park it in my car port and when I go to work I get out at 2100, so its cooled down by then.

Ahh. That explains the yellow shift pattern. I guess it's the Type CR shifter.

I'm trying to find the UK CTR shifter w/red.

Ive always likes the v6 6MT coupes, and i always wished they would be available in a sedan. Well seeing this thread today and being in the market for a new car made me search for the v6 6MT sedan. Luckily i found one at a local lexus dealership and fell in love with it the second i drove it... love the color, options, power and got it for a really good price.

Congratulations!

Now that the G8's are out, and now that everybody's obviously very much in love with the G8's, it's suddenly very easy to get extraordinarily good deals on even brand new G7's!

Thank you and i thank the knowledge i was given yesterday morning by this thread, lol...

the dealership had the accord since August and couldnt sell it because it was a manual and demand was low.. i knew that and he knew i wanted it. negotiation was fun, i left happy with it.

If you put it on a dyno, you're going to be surprised.

2006-2007 is the only time that there has been a six speed sedan with the dual stage intake. The dyno reading is going to make you think that it really should have been rated at 260 HP, not 244.

These things need an LSD pretty bad in some situations!

I wouldn't want to scare you. It was just way too much for a car rated at 244 Net.
