Finally decided to start a build journal for my 2018 Civic Hatchback Sport in Sonic Grey. As of Dec 18, 2018, it has roughly 3000 mi on it after owning it for 3 months. It's currently my daily driver but i'm slowly building it to use as a future time attack car! Loving the platform so far as it's my first Honda. Previously have owned a 2014 WRX hatchback, 2016 Mazda CX5, 2006 WRX STi, 1986 Corolla Hatchback, 1987 Corolla Hatchback, 1987 RX7 Turbo II, 1994 RX7 Turbo, 1991 Lexus LS400, 2000 Mercedes E420, 2008 Nissan Murano, 1995 240SX SE, 2000 Subaru 2.5RS Coupe, and probably a few more i'm forgetting.

Looking good, I love how the type r style spoiler works on the non R. It doesnt look out of place to me at all. I have the Type R style rear diffuser installed and need to get the skirts and front lip, after that I want to get the spoiler as well.

I completely agree. I feel like the rear was missing something until I installed the spoiler and now the car actually looks complete! How was installing the type r rear diffuser? It's on my to do list as well.

By myself it took 3 hours. It’s not a perfect fit, but for the price it was worth it IMO. The side with the tow hook cover gives you trouble but once you get that in you’re good. I’m very happy with it, still waiting to get my exhaust done as I have an EX so it’s just an empty hole in the center lol. Which company did you purchase your spoiler from? Too many sellers makes me afraid who to buy from.

Installed my exhaust today. Invidia Q300. Wanted the Greddy at first but kinda fell in love with the 3 tip burnt tip design. It actually sounds pretty nice too with a few gurgles and pops here and there. I'll do a longer one later but it was raining today and I didn't feel like staying out too long.

Following this thread because I love the build :)

How does it compare to the STI you've owned, do you miss that car?
