Well first off, a car is only worth what you think it's worth. If you want to deck out your car; I say go for it. Most guys who buy Hondas anyway, want it to look more like a street race car if anything else and maybe even race them illegally. I have a 2001 Saturn SC2 3 door Blue; I'm in the process of decking it out myself. I already did the inside, blue and black interior bucket seats, getting a new clutch to match the seats and getting a customized back seat covering. I dunno do you ever goto jcwhitney.com; I like their site.

No, not really. The only thing worth doing to a Civic is take the engine out and drop it into an Ariel AtomYou'll need to tel the insurance about the exhaust, alloys, seats and spoiler...that'll tell them something about you that may make them nervous.

It's only worth doing if You want it. I declared a full bodykit, engine mods, and new interior and all they did was send out an independent assessor to check the work carried out on the car. No cost was added to My policy.

That depends if you want to be sat on the side of the road most of the time while the police are checking your car over for no reason my advice is run it as standard for a couple of years then buy the type r you may as well have the car that wil do the job dont waste your money messing around.
