Looks great! I like to see a car brought back to decent condition like that. I like the white with tan interior, our '07 Accord is black with a black interior, total pain to keep clean. I have a pair of headlights coming from Amazon for our Accord, as one of them gets water in it. They were surprisingly affordable, about 1/4 the cost of a headlight from Honda. The reviews are good, so worth a try.

I had a 2010 Accord until a few years ago, traded it in on the 2015 Passat TDI. i did 10k oci on the Accord and each time i changed the oil i would drop the transmission fluid, 3 quarts and add 3 new ones. My theory was that was better than going to 60k and then doing the 3x3 quarts all at one time.
Yes, I do a drain and fill on my 2012 Accord EX-L 2.4 once a year. I agree, that keep the fluid fresh. How do you like the 2015 Passat? Did you have VW "fix" the emissions equipment?

It is some strange lighting thing making the headlights look hazy/cloudy in that 1 shot as I already restored them about a month ago. Still crystal clear and looking good. Can't explain that photo where they looked bad again? It's weird...
