JDM Inspire?

I read a magazine write up about the Accord that's going on sale in HK. Everything except the grille opening seems to be the same as the uncloaked Inspire link. It seems like Honda will be importing these Thailand-built US Accords back into its native country. From the description there will be 2.4L and 3.0L engines just like the US version. From the pictures in the magazine, I also noticed the car wears the TSX's chrome door handles, which weren't shown in the earlier Inspire press photo. The car comes equipped with European Accord wheels and smoked side markers. Check out the rear license plate area as Honda made modifications to it.

  The Inspire will not be made in Thailand and it will differ from the Asian Accord.
