Hey everyone! I just purchased about 3 weeks ago an Orchid White Pearl Touring and so far it's been an incredible car. My first hybrid and I'm coming from 2015 Accord that was highly modified.

Hoping to get started pretty soon on tint and a hardwire kit for my Escort Passport MAX radar detector. I've already installed a BlendMount that attaches the radar detector to the rear view mirror's "stem" or whatever it's called that the back of the mirror attaches to. The hardwire kit's here just haven't had a chance to install yet due to a knee injury that's keeping me from being as mobile as I know I'll need to be.

I plan on adding content whenever I add something new as my previous car's forum (driveaccord.net) is what helped me to do as much as I did to that car.

Welcome aboard!
I have a 2014 White Orchid Pearl Accord Sport and am also a member of Driveaccord.net. The wife has the 19 Insight in Cosmic Blue. Already tinted, wheels, and factory Honda spoiler. Will be excited to see what you end up doing.

I've got the 19 White Orchid Pearl Touring. LOVE IT.

So many questions....

But will get answered in time, I guess.

The radar detector installed for anyone who followed this thread.
how did you route the wire? did you tap it into the fuse box? if so, which fuse did you use?

thanks!
I went across the headliner and zip tied to the main harness under the A-Pillar trim. I googled how to remove 2018 Civic A-Pillar to find out how to remove it without marring it up. I believe the SRS Airbag logo pops out (use a plastic trim removal tool to prevent those rookie marks you get with a flathead screwdriver.)
