The Story

Always been a big Honda fan and I wanted something that would be quick and reliable as a daily driver so to me there were only a few options. At first I was stuck between an FL5 Type R or a 9th Gen Accord 6-6 but I couldn’t get an FL5 at MSRP and just couldn’t find a good condition 9th Gen. When you search long enough you start to find gems and I found Haru while checking out dealers in Illinois. It was lower mileage, lower cost and a low production number (1,437). Ever since picking it up I’ve been in love with it! I’ve put a lot of miles on within the last six months and even a few mods. I don’t plan on going over the top with mods as this is my daily! Installed: -AWE Touring Exhaust with black diamond tips -Ceramic coated 18x9.5”+45mm offset Enkei T6R wheel's -265/35/R18 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S’s Planned: -PRL HVI Intake -Fortune Auto 500 series coil overs -Mugen LED Tail lights -Unity Performance Side Marker lights -ICB Motorsports hood -Repaint in the far future.
