Hello peeps! still have my 8th gen coupe but is going up for sale soon and am gonna be trading in my 06 sedan for a 16 sedan this week. Im looking to get the Aegean blue EX-T with the ground effects from the factory. anyone else here from the 8thcivic forums? are the factory window visors worth the $200 or should I just get aftermarket ones?

Are you going to be getting any performance bits from HFP or aftermarket brands once some of the entry-level mods come online?

I know right now a lot of people are looking for coilovers and lowering springs.

I plan on getting the injen cai, some sexy wheels, tint the windows, would like a nice sounding exhaust not sure if I like the injen one or not yet, gonna upgrade to HID low beams and fogs. I put the deposit down last night but need to wait for the car to be built and shipped. so mid july I will take ownership.

they want $1700 for the underbody spoilers installed! I will order them and install them myself. then the underglow kit will be installed :)not going too outrageous with this one. just gonna do some tasteful mods and enjoy it.

finally test drove one last night and I cant believe how quick they are when you turn off economy mode and shift it into S. got to 90+ without even realizing it in a short distance from a 30 roll! this car is gonna be fun!

The Aegean Blue is really nice, that's what I have currently, just bought it a few weeks ago. I saw the underspoiler kit and I rather save the money for an aftermarket lip all around. If you wanna see my current mods I have them posted in the introductions area. =)

your ride looks great man. I will be de-badging mine on the rear. however I may be interested in a turbo badge on the fenders. how much was the turbo badge and where did you get it?

I think if you were to just remove the resonators you will end up having a nice increase in sound that isn't too much, and another plus is it won't cost that much at all to have done.

Unless you really want to go the off-the-shelf route and get an axle-back system or something of similar price range and outcome.

Turbo badge is off an Acura RDX, I ordered it on acurapartsclub.com $11.92 plus $10 shipping for me. Shipping varies.

I was even thinking about getting this style turbo badge, would look great on a white Civic, even black, not sure about any other colors:
