Just a heads up, I ordered my sportlines from procivic and got bent over with the price and shipping. I ended up ordering my strut bar and spc kit from showstoppers on Friday. Cheaper and free shipping and I've ordered from them before with no complaints.
Really? It's $20 cheaper than the cheapest I've seen so far. Did the shipping screw you over? Which strut did you go with and what's SPC?

I was going to go with AutoAnywhere for the sportlines b/c they have free shipping and 3% cash back with ebates. Looks like AutoAnywhere price matches too. I'll just show them PROcivic's price.

Jonny, where'd you purchase your sportlines and pro-alignment kit from? I'm looking at Auto Anything right now and their website says the pro-alignment kit doesn't fit our hatches? Also, is the Injen SP the only CA legal intake from Injen for us? Comparing this to the CAI from PROcivic.

EDIT:
Just read on AutoAnything that the SP intake is not CARB certified and EO is still pending. How'd you get yours?
My vendor AFHKparts.com got me a great price for the Sportlines. I saved on shipping by picking up at Eibach in corona.

The intake has to go thru the carb process, then Injen will issue a sticker.

I was curious about this. I ordered my Sportlines from Kseries the other day and their shipping was free, but noticed Procivic selling for $27 less. They made it up in shipping?

So eventually Injen SP will get a CARB EO? I guess I'll just hold off for the time being.

A bit confused, your first post said you went with the Eibach pro-alignment kit, but pics from the suspension install had the SPC camber kit. Which one did you use? AutoAnything says that Eibach hasn't made their pro-alignment kit for our hatches yet. :confused1:

Eibach sells the SPC arms inside their pro-alignment kit.

Very confusing indeed.

Looks great, I was curious what is the process or way to handle rock chips in front eventually ? Or is the vinyl thick enough it acts like a clear bra ?

OP forgive me for taking this off topic but now I'm curious what others paid for their Sportlines. I ordered from MAPerformance and paid $208.80 shipped for the springs and $164.26 shipped for the SPC camber arms.

It's not as thick as a clear bra. You'll have to not tailgate people to avoid rock chips LOL

Even then, the windshield is so dang big and brittle, it's bound to have rock chips. I didn't even make it to 1000 miles on the odo before I got my first chip.

Awesome looking! How easy is it to clean? May have to do this to mine at some point.
Following this for sure.
