Glad to see you were able to get it without the front plate.
Me too! From what I could tell, the dealer leaves the front plate off all of their vehicles until someone purchases them. I asked them to keep it off of mine.

never noticed but, do all coupes have that hole/access port for the tow hook/ strap?
Not that i could find. I had to cut the vent out with a razor blade. Took off the bumper. Drilled a hole into the crash bar. Installed the strap. Reinstalled everything. Took me maybe 45 mins?

Installed a set of Si rims back on my Civic hatch. Had them before but had to unload them. Finally, saved up cash and found a set for sale. Put on a set of Falken ZIEX all seasons and we're happy again.

To add: the guys at my local @Discount Tire did the work and as usual did a great job.

Hah, this is the next mod I'm doing. I'm just waiting for winter to be officially over so I won't accidentally christen the wheels in a snow storm.

Thanks man! I got the Falken ZIEX960 A/S in 235/40/18s and my initial impression is that these are quieter than the Goodyear Eagle Sport A/S that come stock from Honda. They also have a bit more compliant ride which is nice since roads around here are always a mixed bag. The handling is a little more muted than I would like. GY Eagle Sports handles a bit more crisp. I don't intend to track this car but really needed a nice all-season tire that does most everything fairly well and also doesn't break the bank. But I've only driven 20 miles(!) with them today so lemme come back in about 1,000 miles and give a more thorough review.
