Do you know any of the repair history on the car?

As for the top plate on the engine it sounds like it could be normal but hard to say.... can you post a pic?

I'm just wondering if it's ever had a valve adjustment or basic spark plugs, cabin filter, air filter...

As for the name plate it sounds normal but I have never looked under the hood of an 06 so I can't say for certain.

Some vibration in a vehicle is normal, if it feels like it's a lot worse than previous cars you've owned (with the exception of luxury cars like lexus, BMW, Mercedes etc) then take a look at the motor mounts and make sure they are still fine (If one is bad at that low of mileage I'd be EXTREMELY suprised) Also, if basic maintence hasn't been done then it's going to idle a tad rougher than normal so little things like spark plugs (NGK only) and air filters, wires (if it has them) can help calm it a bit as well.

the name plate is finished, the aluminum intake is not finished.

the vibration is normal, that engine has superior mounts compared to the 98-02 years, there are no history of problems with them yet. the vibration at idle is the immense power you feel coming from a superior powerplant. but seriously, some vibration is considered normal, youcan probably only feel it in the steering wheel, and it goes away if you grip it tightly. i wouldn't worry about it unless it's a hybrid accord.

valve adjustment isn't recommended until 105,000 miles, and even then it requires very little to no adjustment. the rocker arm assembly uses a roller bearing, it's so nice.... i love it.

"Inspect" every 105k, otherwise adjust only if noisy - Owners Manual 2004 V6.
Two intake, two exhaust "inspection" would be very pricey and only by a Honda trained mech.
Runs like a swiss watch so don't abuse and change oil "Maintenance Required".
