Just because you can make it look stylish doesn't mean you can make it sylish. Hondas are slow with itty bitty four bangers and you should save your money for a new car if you get one.

Get a different car.The Honda Civic has been so completely overdone, that there is no style to it anymore. Anything that can be done to it, has been. So,the best you can do, is just mimic someone else's style, and thus...become just another one of the crowd.Nevermind that you want to start with the black on black look, which is pretty much the most common combo there is.You're doomed before you started.

Theres these ipod adapters that go into the cassette tapes plug into your ipod or you can get a radio transmitter for your ipod and tune it to the same frequency as your civic. As long as theres a channel where theres jsut white noise your fine.

What would you rather have? Stylish or increasing the speed? Or both? Stylish, I would add rims and buy a new grill for the front. After that, put a spoiler on it as well as some seat and interior add-ons. Maybe some LED lights for the gauges. Then, I would tint the windows to a darker color and possibly lower the car a lil bit. If you don't understand this, your mechanic or parents or internet websites can help you out. If you want fast, go w/ cold air intake and K&N air filter, headers, and exhaust. A website for that is overnightautoparts.comThat is pretty much the stuff for a nice looking and increasing horsepower car. Atleast for a Civic. They will last you forever so if you do that, you can work and build up money and either buy a new car or do whatever you please.For the ipod, get an adapter. Check w/ radioshack or a store like that and they can help you out. May need a new CD player deck also.

There are most likely Ipod adapters for your stock radio/cd player, and they usually cost around $60. To make your car "stylish", you could change the rims, but don't go over the top, or it'll look like a ricer. Black is a nice color, but it looks dirty very easily. Two door is also nice, but it'll be harder to lug your free-loading friends around!

your going to have to get an aftermarket head unit that has an auxiliary jack in order to connect your ipod or you can go the other route and but a connector that uses a signal from the radio, in my experience an aftermarket unit with an aux jack worked way better and gave cleaner sound. as far as making your civic stylish, well its a civic not alot you can do except slap some rims on it and maybe a body kit but bodykits now-a-days have become very distasteful and tend to get a lot of damage from roads. personal opinion, get the rims and lower the car about .75 to 1 inch
