Yes it is a lil pricey. Get a good shop that does this type of work - check out tgheir work before - the shop must do suspensions etc, muffler work, etc then the body work and paint..at a body and paint shop.. I could recommend a few but I do not know what part of the country you are located.

Most cities have at least one or two shops nearby that specialize in installing performance parts and accessories. They can do it all for you within a few days for one price. You might have to ask around to find a shop, or check the yellow pages.

Don't waste your time, it's a Civic. A Civic is a 4 cylinder, front-wheel drive car, it's not going to perform well no matter how much you dump into it. Don't get me wrong, it is probably the best car in the compact car category but don't try and make it something it's not.

Nice! Need girls in the Tuner World!! I would suggest you get new rims and tires, the go for the lowering and then last of all the paint job, but also remember that if you ever want to get a body kit your going to have to get that painted the same as the car as well, so you might want to wait a little while on the painting, but here are some great places to start looking for lowering,rims and tires, and other wonderful stuff....http://www.andysautosport.com/http:/...ion-kit_z.html check some of these site out, they should have what you need.... Once again good luck im glad there's more ladies getting into this, o and I have my own 95 civic http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2642284 check it out...

It depends on what your going to do with it, if your going to race, then you should go for performance engine parts, butif you just want it to look good going down the road, you should focus your time and money on the exterior. i'm 16 and have a 95 civic too, first thing i did was get rims, i got 14 in so i didn't have to lower it and mess around with cambers and what not, but if you do get large rims, it would look sweet to lower or slam it, but don't forget the camber kits and stuff, anyways, i also put a cold air intake and a new exhaust system in mine. I'm not putting much work on the exterior though because im focusing on more horsepower. But it does look sweet and i want the engine to look sweeter.but anyways... civics are soooo sweet and it'll be awesome when you start showin' up the boys also, i encourage you to do some research though, because spending money is way too easy, when you really get into it, so you should go for quality for as low of price as you can find.

To better understand what you want check out www. importtuner.comwww. modifiedmagizine.comwww. superstreetonlineBut I reconmmend that you start with the engine, lowering springs, and cold air intake, exhaust muffler first. Next could be anything that you want to do to the interior and inside of the car. Seats, pedals. guages, lights ect...Then after you find a nice body kit, the color and paint job will be last so that its installed together and painted. just check out any local import race shops or costomizer shops or even Lowrider shops in your area. the lowrider shop can do any of the work needed or will have connections to where some other work can be done. The Lowrider Shops in my area do it all from street racers to Full Show Lowriders like you see in the Lowrider magizine.let us know your progress put up some pics if ya can.
