    Any crows feet or chipping on the front end? Late model Honda paint quality is known to be....questionable. I have an 05 Accord with the rare 6 speed trans, low mileage and its starting to have crows feet in the front end as many other Honda models from 03+

    I've owned a 2007 Si and didn't have that issue either, but I'm actively on the 8thcivic forum and there's allot of members with that problem. I know Honda had issued some kind of a recall for that I've read somewhere.
