Isi’s 2009 Honda Accord Type S

Unless you come across one of the very rare examples of a conversion, the chances of you seeing an Acura TSX in Germany are slim to none. You might however run into the TSX’s very close cousin: the 2.4L European Honda Accord.

Isi and her 2009 Honda Accord Type S hail from Bavaria – that’s right, there’s love for the CU2 even in Germany. In fact there’s a community of CU2 owners, and even a German forum specifically for those interested in the eighth generation Honda Accord - accord2008.net.

There’s really nothing “Acura” about Isi’s white pearl Accord, but it has some really nice features that I think may inspire some TSX owners here in North America. All the mods should work and fit just as well on a TSX, at least in theory. In just a few years Isi’s Accord has been through several iterations, but the current black on white, or “panda” theme, adds a unique sporty/aggressive style that is definitely my favourite look so far.

Thanks goes out to Isi for sharing the gorgeous photos and for providing a current list of mods below.

Xenonlook Fogger • White LED license plate lights • U.S. sidelight • Climair wind deflector • 20″ Schmidt Phantom ceramic white (front axle 8,5×20 Et45 and rear axle 9,5×20 ET45) with 245/30 michelin pilot sport (Summer) • 18″ original Honda Type S wheels in black • Black foiled front grille with white logo • Silver painted brake calipers • Valve cover powder coated in red • Intake manifold cover and spark plug cover painted in Premium White Pearl • Mugen Oil Cab • Rear honda logo black painted • TSS F1 Cat Back Exhaust System • Black painted trunk lip • Black painted headlamps • Illuminated door sills • Modulo rear spoiler • Modulo front spoiler • Painted tail lights • Painted exterior mirrors in body color • Painted decor parts in the interior • Roof spoiler • Sprint booster • Hood, roof, roof spoiler, modulo front spoiler, foiled in matt black • Hood Deflector • H & R Monotube Coilover (currently 60/40 deep)

    Looking good! Love the black grille and the matte black hood and roof. Almost looks like carbon fiber.
