    New Civic Owners, I am posting in this thread to let others follow what I am doing to my 2018 Civic Touring Sedan to personalize it and make it my own. I am doing subtle things my idea is to make it look subtly different yet unique. I want people to look and try to decipher exactly what I've done but not be to clear what the work is. Hope to see other's post their progress.

    1) I have already added 17inch steely's and winter tires being November in Canada when I picked up my car.
    2) Having tints put on in the first week of January and vinyl wrapping the chrome details on the front end only in satin black.
    3) Looking into having exhaust tips welded on to the existing tips as I hate how they look and think bolt ons look cheap.
    4) getting the calipers painted (Gloss Red) in the spring when I put my 17" touring rims back on, It seems to be that covers although they look nice with the Honda logo and badges are frowned upon and are pretty pricey. I might just get 18" black rims and new rubber to get better handling and to show off the callipers better and of course look meaner.

    Finally got my tint done this week 18% all around except windshield and sunroof and got the chrome grill pieces on the front of my Touring sedan vinyl wrapped in Frost Black loving the look, will post a pic as soon as I can wash the car as it was recommended not to do so with the tints for a few days. Not sure why as tint is applied on the interior but something about seals and water and blah, blah, blah.

    Dealer had it already tinted. I took it like I stole it. Dealer also added rear cargo mat for Hatch, wheel locks, and door edge guards.

    I added Honda High Wall Mats, Trunk Organizer, Dash Cam (Blackvue), Clear Bra whole hood, USB light for center console, Yankee Candle Sent from rear view mirror. But I really want Chemical Guys Stripper Sent to bring back all the memories. Just kidding. I also added body side molding. Hard to find a Black Touring early Dec 2018. No regrets.

    The dealer offered to tint it but they would only do the maximum allowable on the front by law (35%) and I decide to add it myself and take the wheel locks, mats and mud flaps, instead.

    Golden Yellow Laminx pre-cut film applied to my fog lights last night. Love the way it makes the front end look and definitely see a noticeable difference when looking at it in contrast against the snowy ground we got up hear in the GTA right now.
