2003 Accord Factory Performance Package at SEMA

Las Vegas 11/05/2002 -- A Factory Performance package will be available for the 2003 Honda Accord Coupe early next year, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today at the 2002 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show.

The dealer-installed Factory Performance (FP) package adds a high performance sport-tuned suspension with aggressively calibrated shocks and springs, new wheels and tires, and an aerodynamic body kit.

Accord Coupe Factory Performance components include:

- High performance springs reduce ride height by about one-inch and lower the Accord's roll center
- High performance shock absorbers are tuned for enhanced road handling characteristics and decreased body roll
- 17x7 alloy wheels
- High performance tires (215/50VR-17)
- Full aerodynamic under-body kit (front, sides and rear)
- Rear wing spoiler
- FP Badging and Shift Knob

"The Factory Performance package gives the 2003 Accord a distinctive, custom appearance and a high pedigree of handling performance without compromising the factory specifications," said Jim Roach, American Honda Vice President of the Parts Division. "All of the Honda-engineered and manufactured Factory Performance parts meet the same high level of engineering as the rest of the car."

The Accord Factory Performance package will be available exclusively through Honda dealers nationwide and will be installed at the dealer. The package carries the same warranty as any Honda Accessory (3-years, 36,000 miles) and does not affect the factory warranty. An MSRP has not been announced yet. The package can be installed on all 2003 Accord V-6 Coupes (LX and EX) with either manual or automatic transmissions. A 2003 Accord Coupe equipped with the FP package is on display at SEMA. A similar Factory Performance package will also be available for the 2003 Civic EX Coupe.
