My New Toy! :)

Hello! Recently registered on the forum and had my new civic for just under 2 weeks now, I love it! It's such an improvement from my old MG ZR.

It's a fairly standard 2.2 SE in Milano Red but hopefully I can make it look a bit more sporty and aggressive. It's done 85000 miles and I paid £6500 for it so I can't complain at all, came with full Honda service history too!

Anyway I'll stop rambling on and show her off!

What do you guys think? Any suggestions to start off my modding craze?

I've just ordered some osram nightbreakers so hopefully I'll have them in soon!

Thanks haha, I think I'll need an extra £1000 for the uprated clutch if I'm going to map it!

depends on a) how you drive the car and
b) your luck

i know of many folk that have run stage one maps 170 ish bhp 280 ish lb of torque for thousands of miles on standard clutch, myself included ( as i touch wood )
if you treat it poorly on a regular basis then i reckon it would start to slip, but often clutches on standard cars often just give up the ghost.
id really recommend the elite stage one map.
i bought my accord as a car i wouldnt mod, then one thing leads to another

How long do you think my car would last on a map then? I mean it's been serviced by honda up until the point I bought it so maybe the clutch has been replaced already. I don't rag my car around as I bought it for the cheaper economy but I do like to give it the beans every now and then.

cant help you there fella, some clutches go at 20k, others go well over 100k no worries.
if you constantly boot your standard car now the clutch may pack in.
but if you sensible, avoid side stepping the clutch from standstill, there isnt any reason why a map would cause problems.
if you clutch already slips now ( nail it in 3rd and youll find out ) then a map will kill it quicker

Sorry mate I'm not mechanically minded at all, what do you mean by 'side-stepping' the clutch?

I'm fairly sure it doesn't slip as I have booted it in all gears and I haven't noticed any slipping at all.

as it sounds, traffic lights go green, give it 4000rpm revs and just lift your foot totally off the clutch quickly, no biting point, just dump the clutch.
not good for flywheels and clutches on diesel cars

Ahhh ok, nah I never do that and never plan on doing that either haha. I just had a quick run in the car dropping the mrs to work, gunned it in 3rd gear and no slip at all thank god.

I've taken out extended warranty with a third party company, would my clutch be covered if it went due to the remap? I have the clutch covered in the policy.

Thanks!

Must admit, having a look at yours makes me want to go and burn a hole right through my credit card! Looking very nice, can't wait till I can get a proper bodykit on the go.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Right, basically I want to make mine look like a type r, or at least get a colour coded body.

How do I go by getting all this done? Can I buy things like front/back splitter, spoiler etc but would I need new bumpers for the cc'd arches and side skirts?

Thanks for the help in advance!
