9th Gen: So what did you do with your Accord today?

Thought I'd start a place to share what you're up to with your Accord...

Today, washed, inspected and ordered splash guards. Should have them by Friday.

Put my original halogen lows in the spare tire well, due to reading about it in another thread.

Took it to the self-serve car wash (the one with the foaming brush and power spray thing) and washed it for the second time in three weeks. Also vacuumed the interior and cleaned the windows.

Three weeks and 363 miles...still have a ways to go before its fully broken in!

Nice I accidentally laid tracks this AM pulling out into traffic in a hurry. Didn't put the hammer down or anything, but I've been driving a 4cyl for the past 10 yrs. This V6 is going to take some getting used to.

I'm not planning on much, but considering tint and lip spoiler...Not sure of the legality of tint in PA though. Seems like the law is contradictory, allowing the fuzz to pull you over and cite you if they feel like it ...

says it's 70. I lived there from 2005-2011 and had 2 cars with 35% front and back, and never had a problem during inspections and a few traffic tickets. The shops I knew offered 20% in the back, so I always thought that was the lowest you could legally go back there. I always thought it looked better when the tint matched, so I couldn't tell you from experience with 20%.

I'll probably have my car for ten years and will never stop modding it. yeah this is an unusually quick car for the segment.

I left it sitting in the parking lot all day lol

My partner's Fusion needed gas, and this on one of my 4 work-from-home days of the week. So the Accord didn't move today. I will use the Accord for the coffee run tomorrow perhaps lol

Drove it 100 miles like I do every day M-F. But on Sunday I swapped out the MTX 10 in sub and 200 watt amp for a Memphis 12 and 400 watt amp. Much nicer.

There right! Better ingredients do in fact make a better pizza. Doesn't mean that they actually use better ingredients.

I drove mine to school and home. That about sums up my life up right there
