    Thank you. I definitely recommend powder coated for anybody who is having peeling issues. They even took care of my small curb mark I made on one of the rims.

    Powder coated with a new clearcoat? Looks excellent.

    Yeah they actually acid bath the rim and strip it to bare aluminum. Then they powder coat the whole rim black then bake it. Then they machine the face. Then they apply clear powder coating and bake them again. They actually look a little better than new.

    I originally tried to order my spoiler through aliexpress but the seller said their shipper couldn't get it to me. It took them forever to refund me and there was an additional charge that aliexpress says they didn't charge me even though I sent them a screen shot of the charge. Ended up getting it on Ebay for $105 and free shipping the quality isn't superb and the fitment was a bit off but I made it work.

    So far I’ve had good luck with aliexpress. But this time it took almost a month to come in. Quality looks good. The fit is perfect. It actually slides tight into a groove like. You feel it almost drop into its spot perfectly. Which spoiler did you get? Do you have pics?

    Not Sure if this is the place to post this, but I need some advice.
    I fell victim to a Hit-and-Run Last night (10/19) in the state of Michigan on the highway late at night.
    I'll attach photos below of the damage, but it was mostly my driver side door that was damaged, and both of my fenders on the driver's side. The skirt is partially detached as well on that side, and my window doesn't open all the way.

    I filed an Insurance claim, and they recommended me to a collision shop that they certified. Would it best to go to my dealership instead? I've only had the car for less than a year (Purchased: 1/12/2019).
    Would my dealership be able to give me a car to use while they work on it?

    I kind of want to avoid renting a car from Enterprise even with my Insurance company's discounted rates. Do you think my dealership would lend me a car while mine is in the shop?

    Does anyone have an experience with this?

    That sucks, but I'm glad you're ok. Dealers often just out source to body shops anyways since that's not something they really do inhouse. I'd check with your insurance to see if they would cover where you want to go. I doubt the dealership would give you a loaner, this isnt a warranty issue so why would they absorb that cost. Better to talk options with your insurance.

    Okay, thanks. I was considering just going to the collision shop, my insurance company suggested. I didn't want to drive my car 30miles to my dealership. Thanks for the info.

    very nice. Im looking to get the same defuser on my 18 civic hatch sport. I have the same exhaust.

    Sorry for off topic, how do you like your exhaust? I bought my greddy exhaust used and after installing i felt my tourque on bottom end is not quite as punchy as the one with stock exhaust. Did yours felt the same?

    Thanks. I love the exhaust. I’ve had it for almost 2 yrs now. I installed my Greddy exhaust right after I got car and didn’t really drive it much stock to be able to notice a difference between the 2.

    2 years old already and your exhaust looks brand new! Mine is not as clean as yours. What do you clean that with?

    Thanks. I just wipe it with a rag every once in a while. I actually just hit 10k miles on the civic recently. Due to travel, it sits in the garage a lot.
