um well it depends on the year and style of the car cause if its a old worn out civic than it would be considerd ricey but if it is a newer civic than it would be alright.

man who cares, if you like it do it. cf hoods are always nice in my opinion but some people like them painted...which i think defeats the point in spending the cash to get cf. i myself have a cf hood and roof on my 88 civic hatch, well not on yet. and i have a lip. but really...if you like it do it everybody that doesnt is just a hater.

With any car if any mod is done tasteful and suits the car then go for it you are always going to get people which will call the car rice these are usually people whom no idea what the term means but want to cause an argument.

I would say no, just take your time. and do it right. I personally have an CF lip on my Subaru and i love it. I would always suggest getting a lip rather than a bodykit on a civic. its simple clean and looks good. It serves more function and a crappy ass body kit IMO. esp if its just daily driven. Although be careful with a lip kit you do need to drive a little more careful because it will sit lower on your car. ( i have broken my cf lip in 3 places already on my car and yes my car is lowered as well)

Lip kits are fine, they add a little class if you have (or want to look like you have) a faster car. It would definitely look alot nicer than a body kit. As far as a cf hood goes, it is a little more light weight and it doesn't look bad depending on the color of the car. But again, its all personal preference. If you haven't already, consider cheap things under the hood to tune up the hp or torque. I've got an air intake that will only cost me the price of the filter to make, but im also not looking to impress with style, just performance.
