Today I'm going to install my rear window visor.Last weekend I added carbon fiber coil pack decals.I also last weekend installed high wall Honda all weather mats.As soon as Hondata is released Vit Viper will be tuning my Turbo 1.5.He has worked with me on 4 of my Civics over 5 years and always produced a tune that pulled as much HP outa my Civics yet making the tune drivable in all conditions.

Nice work, very tasteful mods. Looking forward to hearing about the tune when it all gets sorted out. Keep up the great work ! I always like the small custom work people do on their cars, makes it unique.

Did you get the side moldings for ding protection or just because you wanted them ?

I've always found they looked kinda odd and stick out but that's just my opinion. To each their own of course !

Added the rear window spoiler and Turbo stickers I've seen on the Canadian models?

Cool window spoiler, is that a Honda part ?


They should have put the Turbo stickers on every model with the 1.5 T, I didn't realize they only put it on some cars.

Spoiler is off of eBay.I think it was $53.It said JDM but they'll market a lot of Civic parts that way.

I am curious why didn't you go with the Weather tech all weather mats?I was going to go with Honda"s but all they had was black, I wanted gray to offset my interior. I had Weather tech mats in my Maxim and I loved them. this is the first time I am going to buy a floor liner.
I was just interested, I hope you don't mind me asking.
I eventually want to do some engine tuning , but the Service Manger told me that if I did that I would void the warranty and I took an extended warranty
Do you know if a force air kit would void a warranty?
I like what you did to dress up your engine!.

Would you ever consider getting that rear spoiler painted to match the color of your car? I sometimes see people doing that. But it's a hate it or love it sort of thing.

They offer them painted but I like the contrast of black with the silver.

Thanks ^^I have the Weathertech in my Wife's 16 Accord Sport and really like them.I thought I'd give the high walled version of the Honda all weather mats a try.Plus my interior is black that matches the black Honda Mats.As for the warranty issue I've Flash Pro tuned 4 of my last Civics and haven't had any issues with my Honda dealership.But I've bought 7 Hondas from them over 8 years time for our family.Just keep in mind that the ECU can be un-flashed at any time.Not sure what you mean by "forced air"Short Ram?

Put on rear JDM badge,Steering wheel badge and Mishimoto intake is ordered.Thinking about painting the Embossed HONDA on the valve cover with a silver paint pen.Or red,kinda thinking silver though.As mentioned in another thread the molding on the roof was coming loose so Honda tried fixing it but it's not perfect so they are going to replace it.Pictures to follow of above mods.

Washed and waxed yesterday.Love this Silver.I originally was only going to do the hood but we know how that goes.I have a great sealant Ive used in the past,Klasse Sealant.We took a drive and had some great MPGs.I also found some 93 octane at a Conoco station and filled my tank up.
And here's a pic of the steering wheel badge.

cool mods, can you post more pics when you have time. For some reason I can't view the last pictures you attached to the last post.

Klasse Sealant sounds like a short term version of those permanent ceramic coatings. I'd imagine it would work just as well so long as I reapply when needed. Your build thread has a lot of great ideas!
