I agree with frncsco. that car would look awesome with tinted windows, chrome maybe black wheels like 18", a badass sound system. Put a chrome exhaust. Since its a nice new car i wouldn't recommend doing anything drastic like different body kits on it and stuff like that.

Stacy, your car is fine, don't listen to these haters. I'd suggest what you do is lower your car a little, get a spoiler, an exhaust. If you dont want to lower it, then you can definitely get a body kit, but that might be a little more expensive, good luck with the mods & post pics after you mod your car.

good suspension, ie tein, function form, good wheels, ie, spoon, work, mugen, bbs, racing hart, volk, rays. and a simple lip kit, would make the car look good. You do always have the option of swapping a k series motor into it if you want power, the stock single cam's aren't very powerfuland then just learn what your steering wheel is for, drive drive and drive.

Tuning your Honda Civic can be a very rewarding experience. Before you depart into your adventure in tuning, you should know how much you are willing to spend and in what general order you should purchase your parts. In this article I have outlined 3 paths that we recommend to our valued customers. I will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each path in regards to performance tuning and your budget.The Three Suggested Tuning Paths to Upgrade your Honda CivicThe first path (A) is going straight for the most horse power gains, by going for the forced induction (turbo kit) as the base setup for your Honda Civic.The second path (B) is to tune your Honda Civic with a naturally aspirated setup (cold air intake, no turbo) as your base.The last path (C) is to get parts that will work for both a naturally aspirated engine and a forced induction setup, then decide later if you want to go forced induction or upgrade your naturally aspirated setup.For each path I will list a few parts to get you started. By no means is this a complete list of parts to tune your Civic; its just an idea to get you started. Feel free to email us, or call us and let us know the year, how many doors, and trim level of your Honda Civic and we will assist you in selecting the other optimal performance parts for your Civic.If your are confused about what naturally aspirated and a forced induction engine setups are you should read our Honda Civic Upgrading FAQ. The upgrading FAQ is a great place for beginners to start to learn about tuning their Honda Civic and a great refresher course for the experienced tuner.Path A (Forced Induction)This path requires the biggest upfront investment, but will give you the best gains and the best tuning base to work with. If you have the money, this is the path we recommend. Here are the following parts and actions we recommend:Get a Honda Civic turbo kit (Civic Turbo Kits). A turbo kit comes with headers and its own air intake. Hence, you will not have to purchase headers or a cold air/short ram intake. If an intercooler is not included in your kit, we highly recommend purchasing one at the same time as your kit.Go to a dyno shop and tune your turbo kit (not necessary on the kits we carry but generally recommended for maximum power). If you need help finding one, we can help you.Get a Civic performance exhaust system (Civic Exhausts) and a high-flow catalytic converter.Upgrade your Civic's ignition components such as spark plugs, spark plug wires, ignition coil, modified distributor cap/rotor kit, and a forced induction ignition component. Tuning your Civic's ignition system is a low cost upgrade that will be well worth while for an older Civic. You can find the Civic's igntion components here.To further increase performance, you can add one of several nitrous systems that we offer. Nitrous significantly cools down the air going into your Civic, which adds a lot of power. If you don't have a turbo kit, you can still use nitrous as an extremely cost-effective horsepower upgrade.Path B (Naturally Aspirated)If you choose not to go big with a forced induction setup, then you'll be headed down the naturally aspirated path. Here are the following parts and actions we recommend: The most inexpensive item you could get that will give you the best gains is a cold air intake for your Civic. We carry different brands and types of air intakes for Civics (Civic Air Intakes).The second item to purchase in this path should be an exhaust system (Honda Civic Exhausts). All Civic exhaust systems we carry our highly tuned and will give you similar HP gains. The choice of what exhaust you select comes down to a preferrence in the exhaust system's look and sound that is produced. One of our favorite exhaust we carry is the Magnaflow catback system. In our opinion it has a great sound that is not too loud, and it looks clean and stylish.Headers and a highflow catalytic converter will be the next part to get in this tuning path. For headers, contact us and let us know your Civic year and trim, and we will select the best configuration for your setup. For the high-flow catalytic converters, we recommend the direct fit and semi direct fit over the universal models. Also, if you live in California please contact us so we can explain the smog laws in regards to catalytic converters. You can find Honda Civic headers here.Upgrade your Civic's ignition components. You can find the Civic's igntion components here.The average Civic Tuner takes this path. This path is the best on your wallet and gives you the most gains for the least money spent. We find that new tuners will take this path to get a better feel for Civic customization. Some of the tuners will eventually get a turbo kit and others will fine tune their naturally aspirated engine.Path C (Decide Later)This path is designed for those Civic Tuners that are undecided on getting a turbo kit, and/or will attempt
