Truth be told, there is no shortage of parts and accessories for Honda and Acura cars. If you can imagine a product, chances are someone makes it for an Acura or a Honda. So why then, with all the choices you have for parts, should you even consider going to a dealer for your accessories? After all, dealers don't have the parts you want, and even if they did, they'd be more expensive, right? Plus, you've got plenty of friends who can help you install the stuff. All they need is an electric saw, a plasma cutter, and 12 rolls of duct tape.
Before you go investing your hard-earned money in products and services that you're really not sure of, there's something you should know: You can get a wide selection of cool stuff directly from your Acura dealer. Everything from audio equipment to floor mats to body kits is available for most models. And, believe it or not, the prices are right there with the other guys'. Plus you're assured that the dealer components meet the manufacturer's strict quality standards and that they're installed by qualified personnel. What more could you ask for? We recently paid a visit to Acura to watch them upgrade the stereo system in our Integra. We were able to talk them out of a keyless entry/remote alarm system, as well as some of those really cool Genuine Type R Accessories. Follow along as we highlight the installation.
