^yea... I agree, that chin flows very well with the car, not too over the top... can't really call that rice. But then you do get people who call any Japanese car with some sort of modifications Rice...

Steve.. you're right, Modern day auto's are so responsive and quick... although I do regret not buying a manual, the difference isn't that huge for me to bother finding another one.

Actually, this being a Honda automatic... Does it have the 7 speed sequential paddleshift, like you get in the Jazz?

i dont get the paddle shift sadly... it's reserved for the K20 (non Si 155hp) Civic, the same engine and specs as the Acura CSX.

slot the stick into "S" mode

3. all i plan to do is put decent rims (not to large), a subtle drop, maybe a chin or two, then put in some decent ICE for my personal entertainment. NO neons, NO racing stripes, NO huge decals, NO noisy muffler, No huge wings and fenders. As they say, KEEP IT CLEAN. Is that still rice for you?

No, the chrome and carbon is a little iffy, but as long as you keep all that crap off, its actually a handsome little grocery-getter.

Ah, ok, thanks for clarifying...
We've had a look at a couple of little cars, and the Honda Jazz was the only one I could ever really consider getting an auto (well, CVT) 'box in, just for the rather cool paddleshift, activated by a button on the steering wheel :p

yeah youre talking about the 7speed cvt jazz. a new one is comming out though :)


anyway, small update:
replaced my headlamps with OEMs from the K20 civics that come stock with HIDs. These headlights are designed especially for HIDs such that glare is drastically reduced.

The rims would've been soo much nicer if it was a matt finish imo, but nice look, the all dark feel works with the car :)

Props for keeping it a clean design. You have a great looking car, much better than the rice over here.
