yes they are because everyone and their dog has one so the parts aren't too hard to find. But I have to ask..... not to put one of those annoying fat mufflers that makes your car sound like it's farting going down the road

since you have a 96 accord, no it's not the same as a civicIMO, i wouldn't put a body kit, just a front lip.

I believe the 96 Accord uses the CL1 chassis. Same as the 1st generation Euro R. Since the 1st generation Euro R has so many tuning parts, finding tuning parts for your Accord should'nt be a problem for you. Refer to King Motorsports. You should be able to find their website in any search engines. They are the official Mugen distributor in North America. Hope these info helps. Go juice up your ride!!

Yes accords are cheap to customize!! I have a 91 accord and i bought some black euro's for 80 bucks on ebay and they're awesome! Body kits are pretty much around the same price for any car, but I wouldn't put a body kit on mine if i were you. I am going to go with a front lip rear lip and some side skirts. I have a whole list of things I'm going to do to my accord (when I'm done it'll be around 350 horses) and it'll only cost $8000 (plus installation, but I've got a guy that'll do that for me for cheap).Oh and I wouldn't try to put a civic engine in an accord. I would go fully Prelude. Their engine bays are very similar, and most of the motors will even fit on the same mounts!! For instance, I will be putting an H22a prelude engine in my 91 accord lx. I have talked to a ton of people about it (mechanics, honda enthusiasts, etc.) and they all said that it would be really easy to do!And by the way metal rules!!

5th Gen Honda accords are easy to customize.The Accord and Civic are 2 different cars...so therefore the parts are not compatible.Mostly all the parts available for a 96 civic are available for the specifically Accord. the only things compatible from a civic and accord are of course the rims. However, I believe the seats can e interchangeable. But...other than the rims...you really dont need to take anything from a civic and place it in a accord.Easy mods are like the BodykitsEuro Tail lightsProjector HeadlampsFender Flares/VentsCarbon Fiber HoodsSpoilersEngines on the other hand The Civics hadCX, DX and LX16Y7. HX16Y5 EX16Y8. Si:B16A2.While the accords usedEX F22B1DX and LX.F22B2F22Z2 VtechLX and EX C27A V6Engine swaps are pretty easy as well as swapping from Auto to Manual.If you need any help/info just drop me an email
