You’re not seeing things I’m just illiterate :doh: lol My last car was 6MT and apparently I haven’t adjusted to typing CVT yet

New steering wheel has yet to arrive but in the meantime, new exhaust and diffuser are installed! Type R OEM exhaust and ABS dynamics type r replica diffuser painted in glossy black. Every time I figure I’m done adding more parts, more things pop in to mind. I think a Seibon hood may be Next... til then going to enjoy the car as it sits especially with the updated tunes from Hondata!

Thought I’d post a thread detailing my build so far. To get you familiarized, I bought my 2018 Civic Hatchback Sport in polished metal metallic from my local dealership in August of ‘19. It was a leased vehicle prior to my ownership with only 12000km on it.

Fast forward to the spring of 2020 “covid era” as my car remained bone stock until then. I slowly started getting acquainted with modding my car, it started with some red JDM logos, red pin striping on my trim, and upgraded headlight bulbs. After that, I decided to get some 20mm H&R wheel spacers, and at the time was happy with my OEM rims. Was happy with the way the stance was after throwing the spacers in. I got a DTO Duckbill spoiler from eBay and love the way it looks on the hatch without making the back end too busy. Following this, I had purchased HRS LED taillights and Morimoto OE+ LED headlights, and boy did that change the look. Super pumped with the functionality and general aesthetic they provide. Next was the rear diffuser, which I bought straight from the dealership as it’s the standard diffuser on the 2020 models. After that was all said and done, tax return came! So naturally, it was burning a hole in my pocket and I got a set of Avid1 AV-20 wheels in matte black, 18x8 +45 (reminder I have the 20mm spacers).

so what’s next?
waiting on some parts to come in, Covid really bent me over for wait times on this stuff. I have Swift Spec R springs on route, Abs Dynamics Type R lip that will be here soon and heading for a glossy black paint job, SPC performance camber arms, LED Smoked side markers, and some other small odds and ends. I’ve pretty well finished my summer checklist, and performance parts are around the corner.

Where did you get the rid pin striping for the trim?! I have a 2020 sport touring hatch that it would look killer on

a 20 minute job start to finish, only thing that’s omitted is a bracket/brace near the first resonator. Super easy. Only other mod I needed was the Type R replica diffuser to accommodate for the width of the exhaust
