I'm looking to make the following upgrades to my car. It's a 2007 Black Civic Coupe.

-Fog lights

-Sunroof/Moonroof visor (I think it looks nice)

-Mudguards/Splashguards (I think it looks nice)

-And the white headlights (not sure exactly what they are called) I want pure white ones, not the ones that look blueish.

Yes, they are cheap and simple upgrades, but thats all I can afford right now.
As you can see I don't know much about upgrades, or parts, or installing any of them for that matter.

I'm looking for some advice and help towards where I could get these parts for cheapest and best quality and maybe someone to help me install them in the future (I would pay you).

Oh, and I rear ended someone the other day doing like 10mph so my hood and bumper is a bit scratched and dented. Any suggestions?


Any feedback and help is greatly appreciated.

As for the lollicup, I would love to go, but I am driving down to Ft. Lauderdale tonight for a wedding and will be there for the weekend. I will be back on Monday though. :( Let me know if we can work anything out.

I'm in the UCF area Supermpr1.... But yeah, let me know what you plan on doing with your splash guards cause I'm interested...

I just got the visor from that thread, thanks again avho..

Now I need the foglights and HID white headlights 8)

I was also thinking of checking out that silver dashboard cover that I've seen on some cars. I haven't seen it in person so I don't know how good it looks yet...

For the foglights, you have options, depending on how clean of an install you want. Anything aftermarket is made for the 06 which has the switch where your VSA switch is. The 07 Si's with foglights from the factory have the foglight switch on the stalk with the headlights. If you want it OEM, you gotta go to honda (which is real expensive) otherwise you can just go to Auto City Imports or Battle Endless which are sponsors here on the boards and buy them there, here's a link to ACI ($100 for the kit) http://autocityimports.com/honda-2006-civic-c-51_1203.html
You can install them like factory but the switch you'll have to find a place for. I put it just under my dash, out of sight, but I can easily reach down to flip it on. I didn't like that at all, but it'll do for now.

For the HID's, if you want pure white, you'll want to get 5k headlights. If you want to see what they look like, click my name and find threads started by me and look for my Project Anjeru page in the introduction section for my pics of my kit. I read this thread here for a full HOW-TO and where to buy for cheap. http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21376
and did exactly as he did, but I ordered 5k. I don't recommend anything over 6k as it's too blue and you lose visibility. my 5k are awesome. extremely sekzy, brighter and whiter than stock. As Orient Express points out he got his on ebay and they are like $89 a kit right now. I bought them from the same dealer and they've been fine so far. I recommend these because they are very affordable. If you want quality ones, get Phillips but be prepared to shell out some $300-400 or so.

The sunroof visor is easy... pretty sure it's just adhesive that holds it on.

The mudflaps are easy too. just a few screws and your all set. If you want to make it look better, have them painted the same color as your car, even though your car is already black. It looks much cleaner. Just remember you can't install mudflaps on a car with any lip kit including the HFP kit.

As for the body work, it's all word of mouth. Find out who does good work and who doesn't. A lot of people will just recommend a place they had work done just because they've been there, but try to actually look at the work. It's hard to find good places. Honda is always safe, but expensive. :( MAACO is not an option. You'll most likely not want to involve the insurance company. It'll A) go on the record that the car has been in an accident, and B) most likely not cost as much as your deductible.

Welcome, and may the mod yoda be with you. *smokebomb ninja vanish*

Thanks for all of that info... How much do you think it would cost to paint the splash guards?

Also, for the headlights, im looking for a simple swapping of the lightbulb... I heard you can buy the white bulbs for like 20 bucks and just change them in your headlight.

As for the fog lights, I ve seen plenty on ebay for 60 bucks with shipping.. I am just gonna go with one of those, I just hope I don't pick a bad one, even though they all look the same... They all say JDM OEM, and the button for them is inside next to the mirrors adjuster..
