2013 Honda Accord EXL

I have finally got around to posting up my new ride I got in late 2015 after wrecking my old Fit. I picked up a used 2013 Honda Accord Sedan EXL with Navigation. It had just under 50k miles when I got it but it has since gone over that. I don’t have any big system plans for it since it came with a pretty elaborate OEM stereo. It has 7 speakers including a sub in the rear deck and is somewhere around 270 watts per Honda but we all know it is likely less than that RMS rating. The sound is decent but not the greatest since the sub rattles the rear deck a bit. I may add some deadening in the future or just remove the deck sub and replace it with something in the trunk at the most. The highs all sound fine and the head unit basically can’t be swapped since it is more or less a computer as well. Not to mention it’s a nice touch screen and has full phone/usb support.

It has a CVT transmission which is new to me but I like it so far. The 4 cylinder has way more power than my old Fit had so it goes plenty quick for me. It is Hematite Metallic on the exterior and Black leather inside. So far the car has been great except for a failed AC condenser which was fixed under warranty. I don’t really plan to mod it aside from some tint and more LED bulbs. We all know how things change though and I may add more mods in the future. I did add OEM Honda rubber floormats though to avoid wrecking the nice cloth ones due to rain/snow. I have replaced the license plate bulbs with LED as well as the front marker strip lights with LED bulbs. You can check out some pics below and OEM specs below that.

Current Mod list

  • White LED License Plates Bulbs
  • White LED Front Marker Bulbs
  • OEM Honda Rubber Floor Mats

LED strip marker lights, they are pure white but the camera makes it look slightly blue. Also the yellowish headlights and fogs make it seem much more blue than it is.
