modding is fun, but if its not tasteful then you wont be able to enjoy it. people tell me my car is clean as hell but sometimes i look at it and want it to be stock again so i can start all over. but keep it clean ie: no obnoxious wings, body kit, wheels etc.... you know what i mean.

I was doing little mods here and there. But once I started throwing mysterious CEL's I wished I had stayed stock! Here I was with my first new car, a HONDA, and its not running right.

Now that Ive fixed it ive slowed down on motor mods and gonna start the stereo project up again!

Love my mods !!!!!!!!!!

I actually decided on my mods before I purchased a 06 ASM EX Coupe AT used. Having spent thousands of dollars on other cars and modifications, it was time to have a economy minded car with gas prices going through roof with no chance of them ever go down. Also, I still wanted a car that did not look like a economy car.IMO...The 8th gen Honda Civic coupe fit the bill.I finally found one with 8,000 miles and about a year old. I budgeted $20,000 for the completed car which was $17,500 for the car and $2,500 for the mods. As you can tell from my price list with the pictures of my car, I spent about $500 more than my budget and am very pleased with the results. The only thing I'm going to do is go back to the EX front sway bar. http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/showthread.php?p=732165#post732165

I actually bought the car for the sole intent that I did not have to do anything to it to make myself happy. The car already has enough of what I needed without being too flashy. ( I actually think that the HFP kit/wheels are too much - but thats just me. )
