It's still a decent car. Drivers pretty good for a Honda, so it impressed me more than I thought. Dealers around here though, added too much crap & charge for already factory-standard options which drove me back to looking at BMWs.

Looks like they hired Bangle to bungle Honda's styling, too. Oh well...I guess it's still better looking than the Element.

You might want to look at the proper Accord, the one you call TSX.

I don't find it ugly, I just find it to be alright.

Although I am extremely biased, if you guys haven't found out from my name as it is.

Bangle has created the MOST INFLUENTIAL designs of present day vehicles. Most-everyone has copied off of him. Bangle's "bungles" are overrated misjudgements created by magazine writers and believed by easily influenced magazine readers....i.e.YOU.

I don't like the Accord. It looks like a Hyundai. The chrome on the grill is cheesy and the rear treatment is boring as fudge. The coupe is better than the sedan...but it ain't HOT. But still, I'd rather the Accord coupe over the cheap looking Altima coupe.

come ON -what- .... Bangle has created a mis-match of lines and shapes and then conned the industry with it. He's the Damien Hirst of the car world

The Z4 does look like a shark...

Well, I've been conned. I think the current 5 and 7 series looks better than their previous designs. Especially the 7-series.

I agree with -What-'s comments. The new Accord looks so boring and unimaginative while the Bangle BMWs are exciting and refreshing.

i actually find the new North American accord pretty decent style wise, at least compared to what it's replacing (now that looked "boring as fudge")

Yeah, it's a marked improvement. Not trend setting like the Civic, but still nice. It still needs to appeal to everyone, from ages 18 to 60. That's why it was restrained.
