Smile 2010 PMM FG1 Build (HondaCivic_R18)

Should have done this a long time ago, but better late than never. It's no SI, but I bought it for MPG, so there are no plans for performance mods, except for a Fujita CAI.

A little about me: I have been driving Honda's since I got my driver's license. I started off with a 92 Honda civic, MT, so it was a lot of fun in high school. In college, I drove my parents 97 Toyota Camry because I wasn't making enough money to pay off a car. Then it was my parents 2000 Honda Accord when I was doing my Clinicals in AZ. I was dreaming for the day I would own my own car, but couldn't with working 40 hours a week with no pay and still doing 20 hours of homework on top of that. After graduation, I test drove some coupes and fell in love with the 2010 Honda Civic EX. Moved back down to Arizona and bought one in Polished Metal Metallic. Ever since then, I have been adding a few mods here and there.

Now for pics (a lot of pics):

The very first day I bought it:


Seat covers and the full nose mask:


Fogs and Window Visors:


YoSpeed's door sills


HFP suspension after a couple months, yellow fogs, added a metallic strip on the grille:


Color-matched roof spoiler from shadow.speed:


Liquid Metal Curve 17x7.5 +38 mm offset, Falken 912's 225/45/17 and AVS deflector. Some people don't seem to like the wheels.....but I do and that's all that matters:


HFP Front lip and Red Emblems:


Lloyd Mats and Strut King Pedals:


Rear tint:


Red Steering wheel emblem and CF wheel cover:


Red Stem Valve Covers


So I went with the white interior lighting instead with new seat covers (since the other one's were faded) and a 270mm broadway mirror convex. I think it looks a lot cleaner like this:



CF cooling plate, JDM engine cover and blue oil cap:

Now I have a K&N replacement filter to hold me over until I get my CAI. Don't need a pic, it's only a sticker on the cover saying to not throw it away.

Yellow nokya bulbs for my DRLs:



Custom made CF engine cover + Fujita CAI


Custom made NEOPRENE seat covers




HFP axle back


8000K HID's for low beams and yellow nokya bulbs for fogs + yellow fog lens covers


Red and Black CF interior dash kit + CF overlay





Corsport C-Pillar


BRIDE Fabric on Door Panels and Armrest




Ksport Coils and XXR 527's



PerfectFit Hood guard



How Sobe sits now with Gramlights 57DR's




Updates: (soon to come)


My future mods will be:
Carbon Fiber Hood
Maybe new HFP lip
Repowdercoat wheels
Rethink CF wrap

Wow.....that was a lot of uploading. I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for looking.

saw it on facebook (cool how that works lol), dude I really like it! I have a quick question though, those DRLs...do the highs throw out a farther beam or are they mainly for aesthetics?

Umnn... Female driver ^

Looks good Becky... not to shur about sum the accessories but realise there to protect the car from the killin heat.If you want a exhaust choices are mild from hfp to tsudo sp2 unless you get a full catback but not really worth it on R18's . Unless you Tc or Sc the motor.

Thanks, yeah that is funny how that works lol. They are mainly just for aesthetics. Don't make anything brighter, just make the DRLs a little more yellow.

Thanks. I got the mirror from Amazon actually, just did a search for a 270 mm broadway mirror convex. There are regular ones and there are ones tinted blue. It' so simple to install, just clips onto the stock one. Doesn't even take one minute to put it on lol.

Thanks for the information. I will have to look into the hfp, haven't heard of the other one, but I will look into that as well.

Haha yes, the butterfly seats....heavily faded from siting in the heat for over a year. It was time for a change. Thanks for the compliment, I'm pretty excited for the drop, just will be a while before it happens.

Yeah, I really liked them when I bought them, thought they went well with the rest of the car. But I'm looking at those XXR 527's. Those are hot. I just need to debate what color and whether or not I need to get different tire sizes due to the wheels very strange specs....

So......I was suppose to get my intake yesterday from UPS....I don't know who is more stupid, the sender? or UPS? Probably the sender in this case, since it took 1 month to even get it sent to me...then UPS found a problem with the address and it wasn't correct, so now i have to wait until Monday to get it (assuming that's when they changed the delivery date to) and I have to wait even longer until next weekend to get it installed.

Thank you Driven By Style for making my entire experience just awesome....

Got my Fujita CAI in bronze yesterday!! Will be installed later this week.






Gold XXR 527's should be coming tomorrow. Not sure yet if I'm going to keep them gold or plasti-dip them another color.
