First thing if I get a new Civic?

Smell the new car smell for awhile lol

Then tint windows almost for sure.. $50
then probably will replace the speakers. For a $20k econo car, I can't imagine the speakers being much more than paper cones :)

Just tinted the windows today. Next thing on the list is to wait for an intake and suspension to come out. OEM lip kit around X-mas and rims in spring.

First, I'm taking the back seats out. It's become a tradition for my last three cars. This will make 4.
Then engine break in. The sooner I'm bouncing the needle off 8500, the better. I'm going to try to put 500 mi the first 24 hours.

And of course, after I scrub all the OEM rubber off I'll look into putting some Gram Lights on.

Full suspension (Eibach springs and Tokico shocks)
Gram lights or Volks (Any 17's black with polished lip)
Engine Tuning (hondata, SKunk2 cams, DC headers, etc.)
Body Appearance (Mugen lip kit and maybe VIS invader hood)

I'd like to add the wing spoiler and change the tint to something darker. I wanted light mirror tint but everyone on here thinks it's a ricer look. i'm not hip to anything so maybe I should heed the advice of others and stick with black tint. :)

i'd like to change the wheels and maybe drop it an inch. i kinda like the ground effects but wasn't willing to speed $xxxx for them. plus, they're prone to getting sratched against parking curbs. :(


btw - i'm so annoyed by HID's. They hurt my eyes.


oh yeah!!! I want blue LED's in the footwell that are connected to the dome lights, i will then turn off the dome lights. i also want Sirius head unit and fold out Navi.
