Sup!!

Hey all, new to the forum. Nice one by the way. Just purchased a 2011 LX-S last week and so far really liking it. I traded in a fully loaded 07 Ridgeline which I loved, but this car will save me a ton of money per month.

Here's a short list of mods I plan on getting, time and money permitting

1. 20% tint
2. Replace factory speakers (they sound HORRIBLE)
3. Install my sub/amp from truck
4. LED interior and license lights
5. PnP XenonDepot Volt kit
6. Remote Start
7. OEM Fogs (may do 2500 k hids?)
8. Get all season weather mats (loved my rubber mats in my truck)

Here's a pic. She's a nice looking car IMO. :)

How are you liking your Volt kit? Same exact one I am looking at. Its it truly pnp? No relays or running wires to the battery, correct?

Yep--more like plug, plug, plug, plug, plug, plug, plug, plug and play. The whole install took about an hour and a half, but most of that was removing/replacing the bumper.

The kit is great. It made a huge difference driving at night. The 4300k color is perfect.

Why did you have to remove the bumper?

Joined last week, finally posting today. I bought a 2010 Civic LX coupe last week and must say, coming from a big background in the Honda "game", this car isn't quite up with the EG's and Integra mod-wise, but there's still a lot of potential in this car (it's still a Honda, right? lol)

My other Civic is a 94 EJ1 (ex coupe) with a B18C1 (LS) swap, full custom exhaust, and so many more mods it would take too much to type them all out.

So far on my FG1, i have Xentec 12000k HID's in the lows and an Apexi N1 muffler. I eventually want to lower it, get some RSX Type S or ITR wheels, tint the windows 5%, and do a few more small mods. No engine swaps or anything for now (it's still got a warranty, why void it? lol)

So far, I am enjoying the website. There's a crap load of DIY's and general info on these cars here and I hope that it'll be of use to me when and if i ever need any of it. Around the Shelby, NC area, we are all still big into the EG and Integra scene and nobody has really done anything with K series engines or the 8th gen civics. I'm the first of my friend's to get one and i catch hell because they all say i cant even wash the car with a certain kind of soap without voiding the warranty lol. I know all about warranties and the Magnuson-Moss warranty act and love the look on their face when i respond to them with it.

Hey everyone, just got into the Civic game. Picked up a 2011 Si Sedan around December of 2010 and love it.

I used to drive a 1990 Nissan 300ZX TT before I bought the Si, but I needed a new daily after I blew the motor on the Z in early January and have been glad I picked it up right before I lost my other car.

Plan on getting myself some goodies soon on the Si and getting pictures up.

Hello everyone. We just added a 2006 EX to our garage of hondas. Retiring a 2005 accord ex with 283K miles on it.

Really like the EX and have added some 17 black wheels and tinting. Next mods will be audio upgrades.
