Whats modes have you made to your Civic Coupe so far as? I do like the little touches you've made with the turbo badge and front license plate. Seems like you're partial to red and black combo?

Nice Civic. Are you planning to do anything to that trim? I know some guys like to black out the chrome trim on black cars, for the all blacked out/murdered out look.

I always liked the idea of tinting chrome with tint film to have black chrome.

Usually you see people spray it with plasti dip but the matte finish it usually gives off doesn't sit well with me especially when with a gloss finish paint.

I personally think the trim is a bit too large on the front end to get done in an anodized red. Unless you plan on putting that anodized red on the wheels or something else to tie it in

Actually it's better to leave those caps on since the service guy topping it up will know it requires nitrogen, it's the industry standard and the process they're familiar with. Unless you can find a black cap that has some sort of marking on it, like a green N, or something. Or just make sure to tell them it requires nitrogen

Also to note, some people even opt out of using nitrogen. Drain their tires of all nitrogen air and then fill up with regular air since you have to fill up with nitrogen, can't mix it, and finding nitrogen when you need it isn't easy, it's a mission.

There's nothing that says you cannot top up your nitrogen filled tires with regular air. Virtually nothing will happen to be honest. Even a tire filled with 50/50 air/nitrogen, you'll still be receiving that much less susceptibility to water vapours and temperature changes.
