    I like it.. and that is back in the running for my new car next year.


    Also what has me confused is that Edmunds says this car wasnt coming out till 07(this was a refresh design till complete redesign) and a redesign in 08.. well since this is coming out in 06.. will the redesign be in 07 then?

    I plan to get a new car later next year.. so 07s will likely be out when I buy.

    Cleaner front grille, much improved rear end. Pretty good, all in all.

    I'm wondering what they did with the interior.
    The speedo could be reduced, I think. The current one is monstrously large.

    Looks like something sized for the visually impaired. Maybe 80% current size would be better, something similar to TSX gauges.

    If they've cleaned up the coupe similarly, I may just have to get one next year.

    Did they redesign the Coupe as well or just the Sedan? I really like the V6 Coupes.

    I wish a 6 speed was an option when I got my 04 v6 sedan.

    Wow, that interior acctually looks pretty plush. I'd buy it, but I still prefere the current tail lamps as opposed to the coupe-ish lamps on the 06. But that's just me.

    I'm still debating....my friend has really got me going on a 330ci, much higher initial cost, and higher TCO, but he's spewing out numbers that suggest the 330 will be the better "value".

    more expensive service, but much longer service intervals
    more expensive initial cost, but maintains value to resale, etc etc.

    Well, we'll see come November...

    Went to the dealership yesterday for service and didnt see any on the lot yet. With the price of gas I may trade my 04 v6 sedan in for a 06 sedan but probably with the 4 cyl 5 spd with Nav in that new carbon bronze color

    the interior looks like the exact same thing as the 05. except for those 2 extra buttons on the lower left of the steering wheel. wtf are those for?

    Looks quite nice though

    Yep. That's exactly what it is. If you look closely, the top is an icon of a face speaking. The bottom button says "BACK"

    Two different cars, people buy Accords for a family Sedan.. Civics are too small.

    Looks like a ford 500 in the back and the front is still hideous :(

    C'mon Honda, I'd love an accord but they're so fugly.

    Love the coupes rear - very MB looking, but the front? :barf:

    guess I'll have to get a 4-cyl TSX :(
