All right guys and girls... I'm going to be receiving some money soon. There are a couple things I want to add to my car. I can't make up my mind what to do first. I will only have enough money for one of the options.

Here's my car now..



Here are my options:

Option 1. Buy the Mugen side skirts and rear skirt
(Mugen Side Spoiler)

(Mugen Rear Under Spoiler)


Option 2. Do a JDM/CSX rear end conversion (taillights and trunk ONLY!!). I will be reusing the the Si spoiler.

i voted rear conversion only because i think the lips may look wierd with the HFP front lip. I dont like the JDM tails though. they look like Euro lights, the only differnce is they are stock which makes them JDM. Too bad JDM still looks like rice sometimes.

your gonna have a funky car man...JDM parts are meant for japan...maybe start by dropping your car...or performance mods...if you want a type R look, I would first start by backing it with performance

Skirts. Ppl in Japan talk about how the USDM back end looks cleaner and classier. Ppl here talk about how JDM is sportier. Take a step back and think about why you're purchasing it--is it cus' you want something you can't have, or is it because you really think that JDM back end looks better? I think the JDM one does look sportier, but also cheaper. Mugen skirts would complement your HFP front.

I REALLY like the JDM rear lights... I actullay can't stand the rear end of our civic's. When I first saw the rear of the our 8th gen 4dr's they instanly reminded me of the last body style 4dr:face-puke. I instanly tought the JDM looked better. That's why I want them.

And you're right about the Mugen skirts!! they will look awesome!

I'd do the skirt if it was a lot cheaper. If they're closely the same, I'd do the conversion. But it seems like the conversion would cost more. I wouldn't spend much of my money changing the way my car looks, I'd spend most of it buying performance parts - but that's just me. But, either one would make your car look that much more awesome.

JDM taillights do look a bit cheap (but just a little). They're not bad, but I don't see why you would want to spend money on something that doesn't necessarily "look" better...it's just a different look. The skirts would add more to the appearance of your car IMO so i'm all for the skirts.
