    HISTORY/COMMENTS:
    This car is my daily driver, and a fresh feature on my Youtube Channel (linked videos in the comments!). I aim to become one of the top automotive content creators on the 10th Gen Civic platform. Currently I'm working closely with awesome aftermarket companies like ACUITY Instruments to make install/review videos on performance parts for this new civic/accord platform. I'll try my best to keep the current mod list updated!

    Last weekend I decided to install an aftermarket shift boot on my 10th gen. Chose to go with a galaxy print :drive:

    Work/Project Update #2:

    Sharing a video to help those interested in installing the acuity shifter cable bushings (retainer rings and all). This video also depicts a recommended procedure in removing stock shifter bushings to prevent any damage to the shifter cables.

    Work Update #1:

    As some of you may know, I have been working with Acuity Instruments on part install/review videos on my own YouTube channel (seen in the first garage update). Since then I've started doing videography work for the Acuity Instruments YouTube Channel as well, with the first video from me being this Center Console Removal Guide (essential for any shifter modifications):



    More content to come from both channels :drive:.

    Garage Update #3:

    July 2018:


    Got a new carbon fiber lip. Long story short, I tracked down this lip originally from Instagram, and found that a company called Add Zest Car Color made them. The company is located in Thailand, but since my father was already there visiting family and friends, he was able to contact the company and 3 weeks later he brought it back with him (he packaged the lip himself and customs allows him to include it as a second checked bag at no additional charge!). Here's a link to the shop on FaceBook to contact them: https://www.facebook.com/AZC-Addzest-Carcolor-FP-285143811601306/

    I paid $265 for it, but if you want it shipped internationally its gonna double the price-tag unfortunately. Overall finish of the lip I'd give it a 8/10. The carbon fiber looks great, but the thickness of the material is concerning (could have used some more fiberglass in some areas), and I found a few small pieces of debris in the resin. Black panels have cheap primer coating on them so that'll be noted of if/when I choose to color match it lunar silver to the car. Installation was a little bit of a hassle since there was no hardware for it nor did it have any pre-drilled holes, so everything had to be mocked up, drilled, and fastened with either nuts/bolts or plastic push clips. Despite this, I really like the look of the front lip on my Si to give it more of a unique look here in the U.S.

    I would love to actually see a 19 x 18.5 wheel lol.
    Do you notice any changes in acceleration with the bigger diameter?

    1. powow66
      whoops! apologies for typo :D

      as for the wheels themselves, the weight difference was noticeable with acceleration (aluminum material was lighter despite the diameter increase). The car feels more planted too!
