Smile Finally Bought a Daily Driver!

So I finally bought a daily driver. I picked up a 07 honda accord se v6. I absolutely love this car. I dont think pictures are really necessary since its a car everyone sees everyday lol. Anyways now I can mod the crap out of the miata and not have to worry about hurrying up with a repair or a modification.

and you don't have to fold your body everytime you get in or out of the car.

yeah having multiple vehicles is the way to go, unless of course they are all broken at the same time

It's still difficult to put the Miata on stands for extended periods of time, especially with the good weather coming

Having a solid DD is very good, especially a comfy weatherproof one.

So, the big question - 6-speed?

x turner i was about to get the 6 speed but changed my mind last second. I really dont wanna get caught into modifying it and what not.... btw I am about to already order nice phillips HID's and the oem rear lip spoiler. Now if it was a 6 speed i would probably start modifying the motor and what not so i tried to avoid it lol. Its amazing how quiet it is the engine sounds like a light breeze with barely any noise at even redline (yes its already seen redline even though i have 100 miles on it)

I have an 01 V6 auto for a DD. The payoff is in the fierce traffic I have to deal with - if you're in S. CA you probably do too. The motors pretty good. Except for giving the Accord better shocks, my play money's going into my 90 Miata.
