My old accord got busted... ran into flood water and just died, so we had it fixed and sold it. I would have loved a manual version, but you cant even imagine the traffic here in manila... the streets are like one big parking lot when viewed from the air...
July 4, one day before release, i just had to go and check on it :)

It's only the midrange civic 1.8S AT but im very happy with it.
I had them install 3M FX superdark tints on the side windows and medium dark tints on both front and back




Finally! July 5, 2007 :D

Oooh, bad news, you bought a slushbox automatic.

FIRST MOD! = bought a jap plate from my friend.. im planning to go full JDM setup.. with the mugen kit and all :)
JDM here we go!
The Japanese license plate isn't a mod, it's rice.

With an automatic, anything else you might do with the car is pointless.

yeah i put it there while my plates haven't arrived. it's illegal to have these plates on your car here... :)

im not really planning to make it go fast.. otherwise, i would have bought the 2.0 manual which is only a $1000 difference. this is the 1.8.. im really planning more on visual mods like a set of 18s/19s and ICE rather than make it go fast :)

Nice Civic, solid car. Would look good with a set of 18" wheels.

That's tough but fair.
Not if it's about customizing your car so that it doesn't look like all of the other 1.8 AT's out there.

Not everyone who puts things on their car are doing it to make people think their car is faster...some just like the way it looks.

It's no different than getting a haircut. It's not going to make you better at math, but you will probably look better.

In other news...

I like the taillights. They are very simple...I like then better than the "Eagle swallowing a golf ball" taillight we have in the US...

They look worse in person...

What's wrong with the NA version? I think they look slick, but I'm a fan of smaller lights.

If you ask me, the stock wheels look very nice, I'd leave them as is.

Nice pickup, although I agree with the others on the automatic thing.

Congrats, always good to get a nice new car :)

Some answers are just ridiculous. And rice is nothing but a stupid word. "Rice styling" can be good or bad. So far the car looks great. Even with only the tinted windows and factory rims it looks very good. And he wrote that he's not concerned about the performance drop due to the autobox so I say It was a great choice. The plate looks sweet, original idea.
And styling is never pointless. Looking good has nothing to do with performance (as long as one does not put huge spoilers on it which makes it look funny ).

woohoo... another FD owner :D... btw, just curious, is your HID a factory installation or aftermarket? And you guys are so lucky to get to have such dark tint on your car, mine are just 30% and 25% for the rear piece :(

the top of the line 2.0S-L here comes with HID (4300K), paddle shifters, VSC, leather everything, fog lamps, 17inch enkei Ep3 type-r rims on michellin pilots, etc as stock!!! ...the 1.8S doesn't have any of those so i bought an aftermarket set and had it installed :)

here's the top of the line 2.0S-L which i would've gotten in pearl white mica if it weren't for budget constraints..

17s EP3 enkeis!



yeah i saw your car! FD owners rock! haha! Tint isn't so much of an issue here. i have 3M FX ST5 on all side windows and 3M FX ST20 on the front and back... not sure how many % they are, but you really have to cup your hands and press your face to the windows to see what what's inside :) (just google "3m" to go to their site and check out the tints)

Yeah... That is a bit on the large side for a passenger car.

Congrats on the car, in any case, it's a sleek looking machine. I'm intrigued by that dash layout, it looks good. I'm not so found of the PRNDL 'box, but your car, not mine.

I love the dash layout. And I think it must be a really good car to drive. If it only had the looks of the Europen Civic....
