Hi,

Just stumbled across this forum after putting a deposit on a 2005 Honda Accord Euro this past weekend. Hopefully I'll have the car within the next 2 weeks, but in the meantime this forum looks like it'll keep me busy until I get my car.

I've just come from a DC5R, so going for a test drive in the euro was a nice smooth, quiet experience...

Just saying hi and looking forward to joining the TSX/Accord Euro community!

Great news, we have many Accord Euro members, as well as TSX members. Hope you can find some good information by using the search tool for old threads, as well as getting to know the members by using the New Posts tool as well!

Its a black one. I initially was going to go for the luxury model (leather seats, 17" alloys) but the factor which changed my mind was the tacky looking woodgrain console panel (this cannot be changed apparently - trust me, I asked). I know this is kind of a trivial thing to base a purchase decision on, but I don;t think I could have lived with that console day in day out!

Besides, the base model drives exactly the same..

Hi, congrads on your purchase. Can I ask how much it was? Auto or manual?

2 weeks delivery is pretty quick.

Hi. I bought a manual, and it worked out to be around $37K Australian dollars.

$37k for a manual std? Unless you bought a manual luxury?
In Australia, its around $36K for a base and around $43K for the luxury..both drive away prices. I added mats and tint which bumped it to $37K driveaway..
