Finally posted my garage, so I figured I would start a thread about what I've done so far, what I plan to do and why.

I got my civic the month the coupe came out. Switched the tires out with some Yokohama S. Drives. The stock ones were sh*t, the suspension had way more to give, plus the sidewalls must have been made of paper (firestone ft140). Got the ktuner reflash. And have a progress rsb.

Originally planned on a nineth gen si, but my other ride was being difficult sooner than expected, and then Honda came out with the 10th gen. Big n/a fan, hate small displacement turbos. Plus stick shift for life, and at the time the 2.0l was the only stick.
The coupe being lighter, with *slightly* better suspension than the sedan. It all worked out so I got a 2016 LX coupe.

If anyone has questions about the coupe vs the sedan, LX only. I've driven both!

Same, I was pretty excited to find out the base model would be getting the k series. And I got a black 2016 LX coupe, with the manual transmission. It's a pretty scrappy little ride, does well against cars way out of its league.

It really does, if you want even more oversteer, take off traction control completely, and get the progress rsb. Oversteer animal. In fact I'm going to be getting some less sticky tires soon because the ones I have on are great. But I want a little more slide

Funny that you call it your pretend Integra. I get that, because I had an Integra. But I miss my old Prelude more, and to me myCivic coupe is the rebirth of the Prelude. this car is a lot of fun to drive, and an incredible value.

Nope, the Accord isn't mine. It's the flappy paddle v6 btw.

Yeah I've always wanted an integra but I needed something that's less of a project, my other car has that area covered. Lol. (No not the Accord, it ain't mine)
