My last Civic was an '08 FA5. I told myself all I wanted to do to it was tint the windows and put on an air intake....and this is where it ended up.

Fast forward a few years, I was researching new cars, looking for a new daily driver. The 10th gen hatchbacks were looking SO good every time I saw one on the road. I did my researches, and was dead set on a Sport Hatchback, in white, with the 6MT. And I found one where the dealer didn't want to play games.

There probably won't be too many updates to this at first, the car looks so damn good as it is. I feel like it really wants red emblems and a cold air to hear the motor a bit.

As someone who ALSO came from an 8th gen and ALSO had the full conversion and ALSO sold it for a 10th gen hatch,

how do you like it so far?

honestly, i thought the hatch looked bad ass. but for some reaason, i catch it at some angles and it just looks so awkward....have you experienced that? >

I really like it so far, just wish you heard the motor a bit more. I'm excited to push it a bit more after it is broken in to see what it can do in some "spirited" situations. I know what you mean about the angles, The side profile to me is really awkward.

Oh crap. I remember you. The 8th civic days were fun. Seems like we took the same path just different colors

Atomicblubomber. As you would guess, I had an atomic blue sedan. I dont know how many hours I spent on that website. Always wanted to do the rear end conversion but never had the funds for it.

Update. I had posted a side profile shot on Instagram today and someone said "sick crosstour!" That one cut deep .
