VEHICLE STORY

Tell us the story behind your ride. What made you pick this particular one? Where did you find it? This was actually my first car. It was a nice car that was running for under ten grand and my parents thought it would be a nice first car for me. Problem was (at the time) that it was a stick shift so they figured, "Hey! He might as well learn now!" Describe the modifications you've made. Where did you start,  what’s the most recent mod and what motivated it? To begin the modification process for this car, I decided to start small and basic and go with a nice tint for the car. Tinted the windows and the tail lights. After this, I saved up and bought a nice under glow kit and got it installed. Then, I saved up again and bought some nice 17" rims for the car. A new grill was put into place as well and I took the Si symbol from the old grill and placed it onto this grill. Then I figured I was done with the exterior mods for a while and began to focus more on the engine. Luckily, one of my family members bought a short ram intake so that is currently in place for now. Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck? Well that is a tough question considering I haven't really put down some serious serious money into this car. How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share? I really go in-depth with my research. I try to see as many reviews, benefits, downsides, etc. there are to a part before investing in it. Also trying to stay as much away from being a ricer as possible. I understand that is difficult since majority of the civics out there may be riced. As far as installation tips, I would recommend, like I said, just do your research before dropping bucks on a part. Also, see if you can save some money by seeing if you can install any new parts on your own. What are you planning next? I am currently saving up for an Invidia Q300 exhaust system. Love the way it sounds and it seems like a great system among others with this type of car. What’s been the biggest challenge with this build? So far just trying to decide what TYPE of build I want.
