Picked up a 16 EX-T in Modern Steel Metallic and for the 42 miles Ive driven I love it. I traded a 9th gen Accord Sport to come to this and the wife and I just love how many more bells and whistles you get in this car. I had a modded 8th gen SI before that and I must say that I like the get up this thing has from what little Ive driven it. Once I get it broken in, hoping to do a few tuner mods to up the power a bit. I usually wait a year or 2 before buying a new generation of car or engine just so I can see how the cars do and how the aftermarket plays out, but I just liked everything about it when I sat in it at the dealer. **** wasting time when getting an oil change on the wifes car did me in this time. Ill be seeing you guys around the board here I hope.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new civic! Any ides in mind for tuner mods?
Already swapped the Low Beams for LED 6000k to match the DRL's. Swapping the fog bulbs this weekend but have not decided if I want 6000k to match of go LED 3000k for the yellow look I had on my 09 SI.

I wish I could hear the turbo more, and I want an intake and downpipe, which would probably help with that but Ill wait to we get a few products developed and tested before I go throwing money at untested upgrades.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations ! Any complaints about it at all yet ?
Thanks, and none really. I'd love if we could hear the turbo a little more. So far, coming from my 14 Accord Sport, this is far superior in gadgets and fun for the price. Also, I feel the CVT works better with this setup than on the Accord. Feels like it has more grunt than my 09 SI had. I had to keep that thing wound up to get any power out of it.

Sweet, Congratulations on your new Civic and welcome to the forum >:) I like the picture, still got the stickers and all lol :D
Thanks, I took the picture on the test drive. The wife didnt want to drag the 4 year old to the dealership so I brought it to her. The minute she saw it in person and then sat in it, I could tell I wasnt coming home with the Accord I went to the dealership in so I snagged a photo to send to my mom. I ended up liking the photo a lot as well.

I think Focus ST owners have had luck placing a spacer somewhere in the turbo system (BOV i think) to create more noise, would be a cool upgrade for someone to do here, although you might start getting some bad attention (aka cops)

I rolled around in my 09 SI with Skunk2 header and Skunk2 exhaust and the cops never messed with me and that thing was so loud you could hear it blocks away. I dont think a little blow off noise or turbo spool will bother em!
