The best looking Vivid Blue Type-S in my street

Well, it's the only Type-S in my street
I have now had the grey plastic trim tarted up and I am very happy with the results.
But I now know why NHB is so popular, you don't need to go to the extra expense of colour coding the trim

I should think that is the best looker for miles around!

How did you get it so clean in such a mucky position?

Looks fantastic, but nowhere near as nice as the Type S in NHB.

Very nice. All you need to do now is a get big spoiler, replace the perspex grill for a black one and change the badge, then you've got a Type R lookalike. Or maybe they don't do them in that colour Still, the Vivid Blue has grown on me alot. I think it suits the Civic's futuristic design well. Plus, where I am, everyone seems to have my colour....an Alabaster Silver!!

A big thank you hondaatje, it was the pictures of your Civic that inspired me.

rishiap09, it cost about 500 at my local bodyshop. The Honda dealer wanted 600.

allan40alt. It had only just come out of the bodyshop and driven about 1/4 mile. It was looking slightly less that pristine by the time I got it home.

Hi Dawson, I disagree It looks good, and a lot rarer than NHB. Anyway, I think we can both agree that the Type-S looks good in all colours

I don't think the Type-R will be available in Vivid Blue, but I am toying with the idea of fitting a Type-R front grill and smoked rear lights, IF the price is right.

18" Blade's would just be the icing on the cake, but I have been quoted near 2000 for a set. I wish I had ordered them with the car, would have only been 850
A spoiler on the rear doesn't do anything for me. Having owned a Subaru Impreza with a huge ironing board of a spoiler on the boot lid, I think that cured me of the need for them.
Anyhow, the rear end of the Civic is fussy enough without additional ironing boards as far as I am concerned.

Car looks stunning! colour coding seems to be a really good idea, not huge on the grey trim as standard. You're going to have your work cut out for you keeping it clean!

2000 for a set of blades? Thats ridiculous! Oldriverman is selling a micra in the buy/sell pages for 950, you could buy his car twice and still have change for a rear wiper!

Thumbs up

Very very nice!!! Love it.

That's colour I wanted..... favourite colour and also footie team colours (CHELSEA)

My civvie was a demo and they all seem to be Alabaster Silver which I do like or else I wouldn't have bought it, but I have to admit to a hankering for a Vivid Blue.

The colour coding looks ace. Can't afford to do mine.....

Blade's might be between 1500 and 1900, I might have to investigate further.
As for Chelsea Its blue for the Gills
As for all you NHB, who will take up Meino's idea??
