Hello, I decided to share my Civic Sport modifications. Mostly they will be just visuals, due to having NA 2.0L but maybe in the future i will try KTuner :) My goal is to remove as much chrome as possible and give interior some better look but not too overwhelming. I will be updating thread with new things i put for my car instead of spamming ‘what did i do to civic today topic’ :p This is my first ‘real’ car, so i don’t have much experience with any modifications - any feedback and advices much appreciated!


So i got my Civic in September 2020:

First modification were Tinted Windows (50% front and back

70886B82-3366-41B8-8AED-F98B9F49E84F.jpeg


Then changed dealer plate’s frames for non-chrome ones:

AFTER:
8A6E2ECE-2D25-4CAF-B123-5899A7B15BB5.jpeg


also swapped OEM Chrome Lug Nugs for black ones from Amazon - they look better in my opinion 👍🏼

AFTER:

Most of the headache i got trying to tint taillights - their shape is not helping at all, i spent like 3 hours to try to do it right (i don’t have heat gun, so had to use hairdryer) but still it’s not perfect - there is a lot of ‘bumps’ and air bubbles and some scratches. It looks okay from distance but when you look closer, it’s not great. I still have some vinyl, maybe i will try to fix it one day :) Also i still have to tint those parts on trunk, but I’m waiting for warmer weather.

AFTER:

For interior i still have some ideas, but for now just changed only few things (mostly to make it more practical):

Rubber Mats for Cup Holders, Side Doors Pockets etc.

14F37BE3-3B80-4373-A383-72658D7F928D.jpeg


I got Central Console Storage Box for more functionality:

and new carbon-like sticker/cover on my shift knob:

plus red LED lights to make interior nicer at night:

I finally got my smoked side markers - it’s small mod, but makes so much difference to the car, i love it!

Waiting for warmer weather to cover chrome around windows, i got pre-cut vinyl already, plastu dip emblems on trunk and install mine splitter.

Bonus mod inside:

Don’t mind messed up rubber matt on that console organiser - when i got it in package it was fold like 3 times 🙄 i will try to make it even over the night because my OCD won’t allow me to look at it 😂

Overall i’m happy with my car :)

Didn’t do much, due to cold weather and occasional snow/rain.
Since my last update I just did couple small visual modifications:

Took off taillights tint - it didn’t look good especially in sun/light - too many scratches and air bubbles. I re-did the reverse/blinker part - that one is easy 👍🏼

I’m giving myself one more shot - this time not gonna do whole ‘red part’ tint but just overlays, i ordered this:

I hope it will come out nice 👍🏼 If not i’ll just go to tinting shop and guys will do it for me :)


I did change my low beams for LED finally it was pretty easy to do.

I love how it looks and how it made visibility way better (especially on the sides).

also put those rubber ‘pads’ for each doors:

Still waiting for warmer weather to do chrome removal / plasti dip trunk badges / put front lip 😴 is it spring yet?

Those are the wrong lug nuts for stock wheels.. its very dangerous if you're still using them

Why is that? I remember i asked someone on this forum if these will be good (i just wanted replace OEM Chrome ones with custom black ones) and they told me they are good.

They have a tapered seat that aftermarket wheels use. Stock wheels use a ball seat.

Honda sells them at the dealer but they're expensive. You might be able to find some at an auto parts store like auto zone or O'Reilly's
