Default Is it worth modifying my Honda if it is almost reaching 200 thousand km?

By modifying I mean getting new headlights and rims and a body kit. I don't want to waste money if it is not worth the time or effort.

Well..yes if you plan on keeping this car.If it's in good running condition go ahead and customize it.Then later if it needs a new engine get one,about the same cost or cheaper than another used car.But you'll be putting a engine in a customized car!!

you can give the car new cylinders/pistons and it will be fine, costs like 500-1000 bucks

I have a 91 Honda CRX Si with over 250,000 miles on it. Any Honda can be like the Energizer Bunny if you take care of it. Change the timing belt every 100,000 miles, change the oil every 3,000-5,000 miles and it will keep going. Even with those high miles I still get 38mpg. They are worth the time and effort if you plan on keeping them for any length of time.
