Hrubss's 2008 FA5

Hello! New guy here, joined this site to share my car with y'all and look at builds and what not. I have been in the Honda game for about 4 years now, I got into the game after I got my first car. My first car was/is a 97' DC4 Integra (I still have it and it's under the process of a track car conversion). Long story short, I needed another DD to get me from place to place with a lil fun on the way so I was in search of another car. I originally wanted to get a 2nd gen TL Type S but I wanted a car in manual transmission (also in black ) but they were had to find. I was also looking in to STI's but they were out of price range (college student) and insurance would be high on them and so I went with an Si. I got a sedan because I was tired of coupe's and having no room in them. I just got this car 2 weeks ago from a local dealership. It had 109k miles, came with OEM visors and still looked mechanically good. Only cons that it had was some exterior issues such as clear coat fading and the previous owner hitting someone with the door but overall, I really liked the car and so I took it. Since my integra is still not finished yet, I am not going to be doing anything major to my Si, only to make it look prettier over time. Down the road (and once my 2 year warranty runs out), I will be doing an I/H/E and nothing more since it's going to be specifically a DD. I will be looking into getting a HFP lip and maybe a CTR front and rear conversion in a couple of years or so. The only thing I have done so far is a 4300k HID conversion (since I love my Integra's JDM front OEM HID's) but they don't look as good as I thought they did (probably because the headlights aren't retrofitted ) but they'll do for now. Luckily, I can order the lip anytime I want whenever I have the funds since I work at a Honda dealership. (Honda of Chantilly in VA!). Btw, feel free to PM me if you guys need to check for any recalls on your cars and or need a parts diagram, I have access to a Honda and Acura parts catalog and a Honda service manual! Now I'm going to shut up and show the pictures I've taken so far, enjoy!

Welp, sorry about the pictures. I was going to post them through my phone but it won't allow me to post them since my post count is too low??
Edit: whoops, there must have been a rule that I overlooked. I'm not use to having restrictions on forums. I'm a member of H-tech and clubintegra, they don't have any post restrictions other than being senior members.

Now that I can upload photos, here's mine! I've done a couple things to it after 2 months of ownership.
I'll start a new build thread and include all the things I've done to it later.

I've been pretty lazy to upload photo's and I've been busy with school.
The only mod I've done so far is swap over to the CTR emblems (front/back from ICBmototsports) and add a red Honda emblem for the steering that I got from Ebay. I really want to go with a mostly murdered out black look but with some red details. Since I've got the car, I've mainly focused on bringing the car back to it's prime such as replacing old and faded knobs.

Picture of it with my girl after she helped me give it a good wash a couple of weeks ago:
