body kits give out a specific look. You can tell a lot about a person based on the car they drive.

well ,yes when installed correctly with the right color ..and wheels /tires. but word to the wise from a person who does custom body work .. stay away from cheap fiberglass kits .. there a waste of good money . the money you think you saved will cost you 5 times that later when it star cracks or rubs some where like a speed bump and breaks ..urethane is the way to go when installed correctly..

i got one on mine and it looks pretty good but i would recommend buyin a wide body kit becuz civics have such a narrow body. the wide body kit rounds it out a lil bit. but even then its all based on personal prefference

My personal opinion, but I think those aftermarket kits look awful on the Civic. I"m not sure why so many people are fooled into thinking the Civic is some kind of sports car. Its an economy car so don't muck it up with tacky add-ons. I would rather drive my dorky Tracer wagon than tricked Civic. At least I can use the excuse that my car came from the factory ugly. Can't say that for all these Civics out there with wings, wheels, and body kits.

If you do buy a civic do not buy a body kit, its automatically rice, instead buy a nice front lip for the bumper looks clean and jdm style.

Honestly civics look way better stock. My suggestion is to buy the car, tear off the body kit, sell it, buy stock parts, and ad an all around lip kit, they give the car a much better look.
