My New Civic 1.4 Type S Crystal Black Pearl with GP Pack

Hi Guys,

I have just purchased a new Civic 1.4 Type S in Crystal Black with the GP Pack. I know the cost of the GP Pack is a little steap, but this is the first ever car I have bought so I wanted it to be top notch. I was reading people's thoughts on the 'GP Pack or Colour Coding issue'. I think I may eventually get the plastic wheel arches etc sprayed so that everything will be colour coded. Although I think the GP Pack actually looks quite good with the grey. Just wondering what your guys views are and whether you would get the plastic arches etc sprayed black?

The colour coding is looks better but it's not as noticable on a darker coloured car like black or polished metal.

See what you think when you get it (assuming you haven't got it already that is). Personally I'd have it done though.

Yeh I will just have to see what its like when I get it. I wanted to have the GP pack before I did the colour coding otherwise bits which I would have sprayed would then b removed to fit the GP pack anyway. Anyone know how much it will cost from honda roughly to spray the plastic trims? or am I better off having it done somewhere else?

its always worth having a haggle with the dealer but a decent body shop should do it for 300
