    (Copy/paste from my presentation post)

    Hi everyone! I'm Michael from Quebec, Canada (so please excuse my spelling/grammar)

    I'm a proud owner of an Honda Civic 2018. Got it last thursday and i'm totally in love. I almost always had Honda product, but for my previous car, I went into to dark side with a Volkwagen Sportwagen 2016 and I had a tons of trouble with...so I sold it 20 months after I bought it...

    I'm the Web Admin of the ClubCivicQuebec which is one of the biggest forum in Quebec.

    I have another Honda product sitting in my garage, which is an 2001 Acura Integra that I only use as a track purpose. I will probably bring the FK7 on track, but the main goal with it is daily drive.

    For now, it sits on OEM wheels and studded Gislaved Nordfrost 200 for the Winter. But I have some project for next summer, since I give back the 4 season tire to the dealer.

    My choice for wheels is not set yet, but it will be 17x8 in a charcoal or black color. I have some choice in head, but still have winter to decide.

    As for Tire, I will probably go with a good compromise between ultra performance and performance tire...IE : ~250-300 treadwear.

    OEM fog light will be installed this week by the dealer

    I'm in chat with Ground Control to know their suspension products for this application.

    I will also add the Injen (Or PRL) short ram intake and I will change the brake pads for something a bit more agressive for the summer (probably Hawk DTC30). I will probably go with Ktuner or Hondata (i'm reading on it for now) to get the max potential of this little spooly turbo!

    I have a lot of project in head, but I need to be logic and keep this car as a daily drive...since I went to far with my Integra so now...it's not very...street legal :)

    Here's some shot, nothing big, just a stock Civic. Oh..and Minions Bob say Hi :)

    Bonus, my Integra :

    Pretty easy, since I had a little "left over" for the previous sh**ty VW, I had to make a choice and go with a base model.

    Sport package cost around 7000$ (tx included) and it will be a bit too much for now.

    Also, there was 0 6MT Sports version in Quebec and I needed a car very quick. But budget is the main factor.

    Just started to buy some things, waiting the summer. Nothing crazy, since this is my daily drive and I already have a track toy.

    Looking good! I like that drop as it’s not too aggressive
