No.































JDM means it was designed for the Japanese market.































Your Civic is USDM. Designed to be sold in the United States.































For example, if your Civic was original right hand drive with the steering wheel on the right side, it would be JDM. Because that is how they are sold in Japan.

no. JDM is all factory look... lowered on (stock wheels.... could be off of another honda or acura) , or with parts from japan. Aftermarket tail lights is already rice... and that 4" ebay muffler is rice also

True JDM is when your car has come from Japan and not made there and shipped straight out from a















factory yet used on Japanese roads and then the car is sold out of Japan to another country and then the owner has a true JDM car.































JDM style is where the car is not in Japan and the owner buys parts which are from a Japanese company and ultimately is where you buy the bumpers etc which are on the Japanese sold model of your car whilst you have different ones which where sold on your model in your country.































Keeping it JDM is where you have imported a car from Japan and keep it JDM ie not changing any parts to aftermarket or parts from your country.

Sounds more like GayDM.































Seriously, if your car was sold anywhere in the world besides Japan, it will never be "JDM"































4" TIP on a car with 1.25" piping and 100hp=rice.















aftermarket taillights that are anything but red=rice
