Alright, I've been checking out the Maxda6 and the Accord EX, and like them both. No doubt the 6 is a lot sportier of the two, but the Accord is soooo solid I couldn't fault anyone (including myself ;) ) for choosing it.

If it wasn't for one small catch-22, I think the 6 would be the winner hands-down. The problem is that I can't get leather, moonroof, and side-curtain airbags without getting the sport package -- and I don't really like the sport package look.

I like understated zoom-zoom :D

I asked the salesguy if it was possible to remove the sport appearance items after the fact, but he seemed to think not.

Thoughts/comments? Really annoyed that I can't get exactly what I want!

Great board here, I've enjoyed reading all of the threads!

May not be able to remove them after the fact, but you sure can add them after the fact. I'm giving thought to doing the same, I have a base 6s, cloth, 5-spd AT.

You won't be able to remove the front and rear bumpers without trading them for the differing base bumpers. [Which I think is what you were planning here].

Other than that it's only the side skirts and they can come off fine. Holes would be underneath or behind so you could just fill them. Spoiler would leave 4 big holes though :D

I talked with a factory rep at an Auto show in Columbus, OH. who indicated that the side air bags were indeed available without the sport package. In fact, I saw a car with that configuration at the show. Simply order what you want. You can get the standard configuration, leather, moonroof and air bags. The web site is not correct. Just have your dealer order it. Most dealers want to sell what is available. Get what you want.

LG, Thanks.

I was talking with a salesrep who showed me a matrix of configurations and I was told that those were all the possible configs -- perhaps he didn't understand that those were only samples. If the factory rep said it's possible, then I guess it should be!
