Here's a bunch of Inspire pics...looks much the same as the US Accord, with some taillight differences, front fascia differences, more wood/plood inside..

2008 Honda Inspire

And turn signal side mirrors! :AH-HA_wink:

They should really do away with the bulging head lights and just use mirror blinkers on all of them.
