I would gladly trade you a sunroof today for a drivers powered seat. Never use it except for tilt occasionally.

Congrats on the new ride. The sports are nice!

Me neither. Every experience I ever had with one, they leaked. I know they don't ALL leak, but I have yet to see one that didn't.
Was your last sunroof a 1984 model? Modern sunroofs don't leak. Actually, correction, they leak on purpose. The glass has a felt gasket, not rubber, so that water can pass slowly through it and into gutters which redirect the water out to the ground.... they stopped trying to make them not leak. I've had several sunroof cars and none have leaked, not even once.

Have you driven the new sport?
In a 6 speed?
No, but basic physics and power to weight ratio means that the Sport Accord 4cyl cannot have the level of performance of the Si Civic.

Its almost like the Si of the accords.
Has sportier stuff,and a different motor than the lx and ex 4cyl.
The wheels don't look like driving miss daisy specials,and the new headlights looks bad ass.the chrome I really could absolutely live without. But whatever. I'm waiting to see what the new Si will be ,thinking bout trading the sport in for the new Si.

And the only time they leak, as into the interior, is when the drains get clogged.

True. The Accord feels like a Japanese tank in comparison to the Si. It's bigger, probably weighs more, and has less stock horsepower. But I still love it. It drive the Sport when I need to show up somewhere wearing my big boy pants because my other car is a riced out lowered turbo Fit. I swear, I'm even ashamed to drive it sometimes, but I've got a really good cover story now: an Asian not-gf. I just say the car is hers and no one thinks twice about the 30+ year old White guy driving it. So the Sport is my adult car.

Yea the curb weight is 600 lbs heavier then my SI.But yea the Accord is our big boy car.Ive been driving to my Dads every 3rd weekend for his Chemotherapy and we've been driving to the Hospital in his Buick because my SI is a bit loud for him.This weekend Im going up and I'll drive the Accord so we can all drive in my car.

I was stunned by how much smoother, quieter, faster, better handling it is than the 8th gen version.

No, I haven't gotten around to setting up the KTuner I got. I've had it for almost a year and I'm starting to run out of excuses. I'll blame it on KTuner himself for being super-busy because I'm going to make him set it up for me because I are dum. Another reason why I haven't messed with it is because then I'll have to put 91 octane gas in it, and I kind of like being able to save $0.359/gallon by using 87 instead. He has some graphs of just baseline tunes and they're up in the 180s I think which is awesome because it's only a little less than stock.
