I was kind of hoping the accord coupe would add the pull-out door handles...the civic will have them, it looks like, the 4-door has them...i always wondered why teh RSX and Accord Coupe have the pull-up instead of pull-out? I like the pull-out better...minor thing, I have the 03 sedan and the door handles wouldn't have kept me from buying the coupe if I was a coupe guy, but still...

I think it looks good.

Its easier to shave it... I do think it is a little weird that it is that low, but I'm sure that coupe buyers will want something low looking...

The handle would stick out a tiny bit and would ruin the entire look. They would probably use a line similar to the one on the TL's or TSX's to do a "pull out" handle as you call them.

the handles have always been that low.if you look at the 03-05 accord coupes the handles are on the same crease in the body.

weird, i replied to this before, but it seems it didn't take...

anyway, the Solara has pull out handles and i think that part of it looks fine (even though i'm not a fan of the car in its entirety). plus, the new civic will have pull out handles even on the coupe, it seems, and the TL and TSX already have them. they both look fine; makes the car look more classy...i don't see why they can't be on both the accord coupe and rsx.

Yep, door handles are right on that little "crease line," same as they've always been.

I think Honda uses the "flush" handles for the coupes for aerodynamics, or at least the marketing thereof...

The low door handle has always been one of my major beefs with the current coupe. I think it would look better with the pull handle like the sedan has. Here's a look:

exactly...plus, even if they came that way from the factory, look at the new passat's and how integrated those pull out door handles are...honda could just change theirs slightly for the coupe to ensure a flush look when looking from all angles.
