I bought my LX almost two years ago - September 2016... replaced my 2000 Civic DX-VP which had just 85k miles.

Engine - 2.0
Transmission - CVT
Color - Silver

UPDATE 10/01/2020, what done so far:

INTERIOR:
1. Cloth arm rests (doors, center console) to OEM leather
2. LED dome, map and trunk lights
3. Map lights turn on with dome light mod
4. Sound deadening (doors, floor, trunk)
5. Leather CVT shifter

AUDIO:
1. Front Infinity 2 way speakers
2. Touring tweeter garnish
3. Rear Infinity coax speakers
4. 9 inch Android HU

EXTERIOR:
1. Clear LED side markers
2. Touring spoiler lip
3. 25% rear tint, 50% front tint
4. LED stop lights
5. LED VLEDS 5000k headlights

SUSPENSION:
1. Rear 22mm Eibach sway bar
2. Accord OEM rear sway bar links
3. DC Carbon front 1 piece strut brace



Today, almost two years later I drove just 6500 miles.... Starting to give her some attention now :)

Started with some LED upgrades - Headlights and front turn signals

No hyperflash, they have built in resistors...


For headlights I got my personal favorite HIKARI LED kit

Had them in all my cars, always great performance and visibility !

More upgrades are coming soon - Eibach rear sway bar, tint, new speakers, spoiler, KTuner, hopefully Si front bumper cover since mine has a damage :( Wheels for sure once I find someone local who wants to sell Si wheels :)

My AC compressor was leaking but I had a VSA(extended contract or agreement) so I shouldn't be paying too much. I was told my repair would be done by tomorrow (crossing fingers.)

I see you have a scuff on your car. If it hasn't penetrated to the clearcoat sadly yours has a empty windex bottle of half distilled water and isopropyl alcohol gets most scratches away. Total only cost 3-4 bucks.

Cool ideas. I have an '18 EX right now (same color btw) sitting at around 2800 miles and I bought the car in March. So far I have done: Lamin-X tint of where the rear indicator/reverse lights are and it looks AMAZING, LED headlight swap using a kit from Cougar Motor, added exhaust tip to the rear, Hondahack to the headunit, K&N Air filter, and I bought a KTuner V1.2 but since my car is a 2018 my ECU is not added yet so I have to wait for who knows how long until they add my ECU to their supported list. Planning to buy 18" wheels/tires next month and lower it on some D2 Springs and once my KTuner is supported I think my "build" will be complete.

unfortunately bumper cover is bent and plastic is damaged... I'm trying to get a hatchback bumper cover otherwise just touch up paint should be ok for now... branch fall off in front of me last year when storm started in the middle of the day :( didn't want to slam my brakes so run over it and damaged front bumper cover, underneath covers a little bit

LOL I should cover up my rear license plate and told you the mods I did and post them here if I ever get my car back. I bought chrome covers for the rearview mirrors and chrome handles so I do not get scratches. I also have a rear plastic brace for my rear bumper since I was rearended 3-4 times in California people tend to tailgate here and I got into so many of those minor accidents. Ever since I put that on people are tailgating me less because they do not want there frontend damaged.

Also have a big Autobot sticker in silver in the back mirror lol.

Since I do not know when I will be on again here is my picture. I was anal so I got that chip fixed and some bumper repair and door paint for 500 using a mobile paint place. Since this is an old picture I put another civic emblem beneath my license plate.

More LEDs :)

Switched entire lights with LEDs, stop lights are flashing from https://blinkingbrakelights.com, turn signals are same exact ones from Lasfit and reverse lights are from JDM Astar :)
