    Yeah the price’s they have are pretty much super stable from more than a year now ...
    Accord 2.4 no matter Type S or Executive vary from around 4000 up to 6000-7000 € euro
    It really all depends of the condition of the car km’s/miles... there are some cars for around 2600-3600€ with little rust dots on the rear with around 230k km’s ...
    but overall the price is stable around 5k €

    BUT I’m still thinking and looking for another good JDM sedan (sport-sedan) ideas ... ( still have in my mind a GS300 automatic ... but it’s heavy...) I’m a big RWD fan but those Toyota Chasers are damn expensive... it’s unreal ...

    give ideas
    think think
    I think around new year to buy a car ...
    for now is still the Accord CL still seems like a good choice

    Update: Final decision

    it Will be Accord Euro Type S definitely!
    it just combines everything you could want from a car...
    as said in one drive tribe article:
    It's something I’d thrash at the track on a Sunday, be stuck in traffic in on a Monday, use as the grocery getter Tuesday to Thursday and transport my friends to the gig in on a Friday.

    thank you all !!!

    PS: I think the thread is good to continue because anyone can look for JDM car competitor to the EU BMW 3-5 series, Audi’s and Benz’s ( and I live in EU

    U got me
    I’m looking for a car the can be a project little bit not too deep (said no one never)
    but and to be a good daily driver let’s say I’ve been already in this hatchback racer ages .... I still wonder about an EP but the Accord still pull’s me it’s practical too and I think a K24 can a nice turbo 300hp on a family daily Accord would be dope AF ...

    Turbo kits for the:
    is250 (2006) -> 433AUD +Intercooler (eBay)
    GS300 (2005) -> $1220 (Toyota)
    Accord (2008) -> $930 (eBay)

    I'm assuming you want a project car that goes moderately fast. this is where i would start.

    You know what would be WICKED is taking that FWD-train and moving it to the boot. Thus making it a Mid engine car! (Dollas tho)

    Depends on what condition you need and how many kms.

    Completely crazy Idea now: Get a Toyota GT86, they should be affordable with high mileage. It is already a beast and it can surely handle mods.

    Edit: I stand corrected. The GT86 seem pretty much sold out in Switzerland. Might have sold mine for an even higher price dang.
    I really don't know about Switzerland, but here in Spain is hard to find a GT86 for less than 15.000 €.

    It's a matter of personal taste, I guess.

    The backside is really unique, and remind slightly to the NSX.

    The 3.0 V6 engine produces around 200 HP.
    I don’t really like how it looks or maybe I’ve not watched it closely...

    so is there a difference between executive and type S because I think about getting executive because of all the comfort and of course the sun roof ... throw that type s lip kit lower it just a touch and we’re all good
