What is something big or small you do, or did to your new Accord when you first got it? Kind of like a ritual, something out of habit, something for good luck etc, etc.
Myself. I always put a black cross emblem on the back of my car.

One of the first things that I do is buy an air freshener black ice is my favorite. Then also buy a nice pocket knife and place in the driver side door. I use that thing countless times from opening boxes from the mail to pulling out that annoying hang nail. But a nice pocket knife will always go a long way.

Clean and wax the paint, clean the windows, check air pressure in the tires, put in weatherTech mats.

Be careful with synthetic air "fresheners". They're usually petroleum based and contain toxic chemicals that damage not just your lungs but your DNA.

First things I do? Wax and seal the paint, clean and protect the interior surfaces, tint the windows and then install a high end custom sound system.

And then I see how fast I can get it to go.

I have a silver-colored mardi gras beads, which hangs from my rearview mirror. First thing I did was to christen my new 2019 Honda Accord (Lexi) with putting those beads on her.

Dashcam went in the day I brought mine home. The first true addition to the car was tint - an absolute must for me (medical waiver for sunlight sensitivity?)

Dashcam was in before I even took it off the lot! Second to that was window tint and since it was at a car wash place I had them wash/wax too.
