cosmetic mods on '06 accord ex sedan

I just bought a 2006 accord 4 cyl ex sedan fully loaded.

I don't know too much about car parts, but I want to make some cosmetic mods to it... the colour of my car is silver.

I don't want to go crazy on it. Wanna keep it clean, just spice it up a bit. Probably not looking to put a kit on it... and Want to be as economical as possible...

Any suggestions?

^ pretty vague. Simple clean look on silver

Depend on $ range I would say get the hfp kit for sedan 06-07 looks simple and nice (front and sides)

Springs to lower a bit I would say pro-kit if you want to have something lower then s-tech. With stech you will need to get some dampers as well. I would say koni yellows. The Better option is coils. You got a lot of choices here tein, skunk, d2.

As for wheels after you have lowered your car search criagslist for a set of 19" G37 wheels, unique and subtle.

As for headlights diy bake them and go with blackhoused headlights.

Ice: don't get that single din crap the stock deck isn't bad. But if you want something aftermarket get a double din. It will fit in your lower cubby.

That's about it. More info can be found on

I had a 7th gen before it wasn't a bad car. Hope this helps.
