    I've seen some bits and pieces of differences. Does anyone have a good URL
    or list?

    The differences I have noted (from photos) include:

    * revised grille and front bumper, with the bumper having the lower
    twin gills found on the 03-05 coupes and the grille more smoothly
    integrated into the bumper
    * totally restyled rear taillight treatment, a la TL and the coupes
    * chrome-plated Honda "letter" badge in steering wheel hub, rather
    than full badge with black-background
    * aluminum surround piece on radio/climate control unit
    * a revised font to the numbers on the speedometer

    Fellow newsgroup posters are welcome to add to this list, since I may
    have overlooked some revisions or enhancements.

    Its a totally redesigned car, right down to the tire size. It has side and
    side curtain airbags, larger wheels, ABS.

    Your best bet would be the Honda website in both the U.S. and Canada. If you
    want to see a really sharp Civic go to Honda UK website. Their Honda Civic
    is really different to the one we get and is design specifically for the UK.
    The Civic we get is the Japanese design version

    Are you speaking of the Accord or Civic - I don't see the 06 accord on
    Honda's website.

  5. This change alone now makes the Accord look A LOT better than before.

  6. No, it is NOT totally redesigned. It is still the same Accord as the
    '03-'05 (7th-generation). The differences are merely in styling and some
    features. 6 airbags and ABS are now standard on all Hondas for '06.

    Or perhaps you are confusing the Accord with the all new Civic?
