EX, DX, Si, etc all those are called "trims" and they are different for every car manufacturer. These trims basically are cars that have different options, engines, etc. Your dealer will be able to tell you for sure by checking your VIN number [vehicle identification number]. It is on your dashboard. Just call them and read it back to them and they will be able to tell you what year and model your car is.

ok as for mods look anything under american or jdm 6th gen models they should be teh 96-00 model. also if you like jdm look for an ek civic the parts as to interior and exterior will fit on aswell dx and cx are same chasis just different options i think the only difference was power locks, power windows. adn the guage cluster. as to performance mods look by your engine code it should be a D14A2 but im not 100% sure on that i know its a 1.4L I-DSI. but if you can get the VIN number or call your dealer you will get that info. if you are on an ej chasis then you can fit up to 19" wheels with a real low pro tire but ride is very uncomfortable. 18s would be nice. only real differeence from your model to my dx is the engine. i have a d16y8. engine mods will change style wont. i guess simplified looks your safe on engine dont go by car go by engine code. wheels slip on them 18s with a lowpro and your good. if you got more questions email me to and we will help you out if i dont got the answer someone on my team will be able to. HONDA ALL THE WAY
