If its a auto V6 LX coupe then you will loose but most likely its the 160hp one and you should crush it.

I'd advise you to sell your IS immediately and go back to college. If you're lucky you'll learn how to write/type complete sentences and use correct grammar and punctuation.

But, if you decide to hang onto the IS and continue to speak like a mentally challenged 8 yr old you will beat the Accord.

The stock IS can beat the Accord V6--mine has done it 3 times now.
I belive they run mid 14's... I belive IS300s run low-mid 15's

Maybe the automatic versions are significatly slower but I am pretty sure they run pretty close times to that of the manual V6 accords

Its my understanding that the 2003 is a 240hp model. I am by no means an expert on the topic of honda faimly sedans but I belive the model change was from 2002-2003

the 03+ 6-speed coupes are fast. make no mistake, they will beat an IS . Having said that ,the 6-speeds are the only ones that will do so, the 03 LX will come nowhere close.

Even the V6 versions that are A/T wont beat the IS. I almost bought an 04 Accord EX coupe instead of the IS, but all they had left in the state inventory were A/T's.. and there was no way that I'd get the A/T if I were gettin the Accord. Those are just plain boring.

There is a significant difference between V6 Auto and 6spd. If I remember correctly, the 6spd V6 has a different intake manifold than that of a V6 auto which allows it to put down more Hps. From what I've heard the V6 6spd is underated in terms of power that it puts out. I guess they didn't want to cut into sales of the 6spd CL-S. Even thou there is no more CLs.

6-speed CL-S = tonnnns of torque oversteer !

I found one in black at a local Acura dealer (used) which I liked, but damn the moment I took off from the light I had to fight the bloody thing!!!! :pissed:

The Accord's 6-spd setup is a LOT more forgiving on the front tires, and doesnt feel as powerful or crazy as the CL-S.

And yes, the AT V6 Accords suck ass. The 6-spd is the only fun car in that entire lineup. And fully spec'd out at 32K , its a hard sell.
