I personally had a meh experience with VViVid vinyl. Granted, it was a 2" wide roll of red carbon fiber pinstripe, but still, put a bad taste in my mouth after that experience. Shit faded to pink after 2 weeks, then they changed the amazon listing to say "for interior use only". They were quick to refund me though, so I guess that's something. I'll be sticking with 3M 1080 for everything on mine from here on out

That gloss carbon fiber looks good though. I personally went with the dry carbon look for everything you posted up

I left the oem horns in tact but I did cut the green wire on one of those oem horns to splice into it. That said the oem horns are still in tact and work as they did before... just now with two additional horns that are loud as hell lol.

Honestly as far as difficulty I cant say... I have background in cable making and electronics so this was pretty easy for me.
I like that haha 3 horns. I would do it too but I have no experience in working anything lol. Would you say it can be easily done by anyone with instructions?

Technically its 4 horns as oem is dual horns as is the hella sharptones. So its 2x2. It's worth the upgrade. A lot of people just replace the oem ones and mount them in the oem location. I wanted a little more though haha.

Did some amateur vinyl wrapping; my skills are terrible but the gloss carbon vinyl looks great in person. You can see a before/after comparison in one pic

I'm wanting to do just this panel. Is there a way to pop it out to wrap around, or did you have to cut a piece to fit as best you could? I watched a video on shifter disassembly which made it look like one piece, including the leather boot.

Goodies from Japan arrived today in the form of Mugen Hydrophilic LED Mirror Glasses. As well as being anti glare they benefit from having in built LED's that can be wired to the turn signals.

Installation was relatively easy. The factory mirror glass can be removed in a few seconds by lifting the glass onwards until it releases from the ball fitting. If you opt for the basic installation without connecting the turn signal LED's then the new mirror glasses can be refitted in a minute or so.

However if you wish to fully install them utilising the LED's then the installation becomes trickier. Firstly you need to remove the two Philips head screws that are located behind the mirror glass on the black plastic frame. One e these screws are removed you can then move onto removing/loosening the colour coded mirror back. On the UK spec covers which are different to the USDM ones, there are three spring tab clips that need gentle prying. Using a simple plastic trim tool and a 90 degree pick tool will assist in the removal.

The Mugen mirror glass has an integral loom complete with multi plugs. By disconnecting the main mirror housing multiple will allow you to connect the mirror connect and reconnect the original mirror connector to the 'Y' split branch on the harness. To complete the installation, the mirror frame screws and backing need fitting. The last part to fit is the new glass. Pleased aware you will need to swap out the white plastic mounting plate from your original glass onto the new one. Finally connect the two heating wires and snap the glass back onto the adjustment motor.

Overall extremely pleased with the fit and function of this accessory. The blue tint eases the strain on your eyes during driving in normal daylight hours, particularly on sunny days. The blue tint also compliments my Sonic Grey Pearl paint work. Can highly recommend this product and please message me if you would like to purchase this kit through my parts business.

@WhiteSi yes, you have to pull the shifter trim panel up to get it, but it's easy (definitely use a trim panel tool or a thin plastic wedge)
- Remove the side trim pieces (the curved ones that go up and around the stereo unit)
- Remove 2 screws holding the shifter trim whole piece down, and carefully pop it up
- You don't have to fully remove the shifter trim or shift boot, but you might have to unclip the wire harnesses for the E-Brake and sport mode button, just so you can lift the console trim up enough
- Underneath you can see there are 2 little screws and one clip that holds this piano black piece onto the bigger shifter console piece. Pop those off and you're good to go.

Took her to the dealer for a car wash. Also, set up HondaHack in my head unit.

I followed this video I found on another thread. The first time you do it like this it's tough to take out. After that first time you "break the seal" it comes off pretty easily
Just to add , the Si is the only trim you can do this with, the rest are screwed in and the bumper has to be removed,at least on the non Si sedan and the coupe.

Si and hatchbacks* Got the same vent setup. Dunno about the FK8's faux vents, but I'd imagine they're similar.

I have a hatchback and I removed the vents without removing the bumper.

Hey Stephen, on picture 7, that's the compare of OEM vs Mugen right? I'm surprised how solid your OEM looks, when I did mine, our OEM seem to have way less on the back.
