Default How does the 2008 honda accord ex-l look in black?

I'm planning to buy a 2008 honda accord and I was just wondering how it looked in black. I haven't seen honda show it off so I was a bit concerned that It might not look to good. Honda usually shows off their metallic gray and midnight blue.

I use to sell Hondas,and the Black is the sharpest color among the colors available.The Honda Accords have a system in the engine that allows you to conserve fuel because at a steady speedy it will cut the engine back to 3 cyclinders.You can't go wrong with the Honda Accord no matter what trim level you select.

The Accord EX-L looks very nice in black. I saw one a coupe black EX-L the other day and just last week i saw a black EX-L sedan at the Honda dealer while getting my Prelude serviced.

It looks really good. But do you really want a black car? Its very hard to maintain. You can see all the scratches very easy. And its hard to keep clean.

Black is hard to maintain BUT I JUST bought a '09 Lancer in BLACK and I am SOOOOOOOO glad I did! The lines are smokin in black! SMOKIN!!!! As are the lines on the Accord!!! It looks ballin in black! When you get it to maintain it DO NOT WASH IT WITH A BRUSH.... Pressure wash ONLY and when you wash it wash it by HAND useing a shammy and a GOOD soap. Mulligans car was is excellent for black paint. Yes its a pin vs. driving to teh car wash and blowing then scrubbing it down in less then 5 min but you will NOT be dissapointed. I wash my car at least once a week with my shammy and it still looks BRAND NEW.....
