2017 Civic ex-t coupe 6-spd
Well here's my new car I picked up yesterday. Love it already! I have the aero pkg, and spoiler on the outside already. First thing I'm going to do to it is get it de-badged. The trunk is the only thing that I didn't love right off, so getting rid of the civic badge makes it less busy, and more clean imo.
I also have the clear side markers, and amber bulbs on order. Eventually I'll switch all the lights to LED.
Already I'm not a fan of the Continental tires that came with it. I will most likely drive these till spring, and get a dedicated pair of summer tires, then winters in the fall.
Once I do get the summer tires, a progress rear sway bar will be in the works.
I also like the look of the red caliper covers. Could be something I pursue as well.
Very excited to have this car, and improve it!

Since you are debadging, I take it you wouldn't want the side turbo sticker either? Beautiful ride :thumbsup:

Thanks, well I got the aero pkg, so the turbo emblems are on the original parts. So I may eventually get them put on, especially if I go with darker rims in the future.
If i get the red caliper covers I"ll get the turbo emblems for sure.
So many choices... but thats what I love about this car already and I've had it one day, lol.

De-badged this past Friday. Looks cleaner and less busy for sure.

First Wash, freshly de-badged. Love how the WOP shines.

Yeah I've seen those I was thinking of trying some caliper paint that tirerack.Com has but Idk if the paint will affect the electronic parking brake.
Good question. I'll ask next time in Honda. I wouldn't think so, but you never know.

MGP makes nice stuff, my buddy had them on his 2011 Charger R/T and they were awesome, worth it.

Got my clear side markers in the mail today. Wow about a week to get from China! Fastest I've ever gotten anything from there. Already have the amber bulbs. Could be a weekend project.

Also bought these Acura rims and winter tires on Kijiji for $375.00 (Can) total. The winter tires are close to half worn, but will last me for next winter. Also I'm thinking of Plastidip for the rims. I'm torn which color, as I don't like the look of black. Any suggestions?
