Hey everybody!! I'm new to the 8th gen civic. Just curious what are people doing with this piece of trim?? Body color match?? Looking for examples and ideas. I did a search but didn't have much luck. If there is a thread for this I apologize.

honda offers paint matched trim, or you can go do like a flat black like some do. your call. think anything looks better than the chrome.

I got the '08 piece from College Hills Honda. Not only did I not like the chrome, I also hated the bulge. This piece sits nice and flush, ...the ones with the chrome pieces painted still looks like a wart on the Sedan's arse.

safe to assume that the single bolt that they refer to in the chh vid is the one holding the key slot in the FA1 trunks?

Yes. Pop the single 10mm bolt out and then pinch the 5 or so fasteners. Super easy and fast. I went with a satin finish black on mine to tie it into the wheels. I think it looks good on my color (PMM) and it was free as a friend owns the best auto repair shop in town. Now I need to redo the emblem as the plasti dip doesn't match well.

Nope, there's actually one bolt in there near the center. The rest are plastic clips. I have an EX (no key hole) so it's the same part as the Si one. Only DX/LX get the key hole.

did they all come chrome? I bought my 07 about a year and a half ago and it already had the matching piece?
