2015 civic sport

I've had the civic since February '17 and once the warranty was up, decided to sort a couple of things on the motor.
First up, a set of eibach springs were fitted and so far they have been really good.
I did think about selling the car, but the value of the 9th gen has fairly plummeted since the 10th gen come out, mine has just 36k on the clock so I thought I'd just keep it another year or two yet.
After browsing the forum, I fancied a wheel upgrade and ordered a set of 8x18 team dynamics pro race 1.2 with et40 and 225/40/18 falkens.
I don't think there will be any more mods ( famous last words ) but I will get a couple of stone chips touched up and a machine polish too.
Maybe even the calipers painted.
I've remapped previous cars, and although the wee civic could do with an extra 20/30 bhp am not sure if I will go down that route.
Took a couple of quick pics once the wheels were on.
Thanks for reading

Looks good--just need a black sports fuel cap to set it off. Lowered suspension and bigger wheels look great.

Very Nice! I have these mods on my 'bucket list' of things to do on mine. The 18" wheels just look right for the car in my opinion - I'm not sure why 17" were the standard in honesty!!


How easy were the springs to fit? Did you do them yourself or get them done for you? Just curious - as I am nervous about attempting this myself, but would love to do it in the near future...

Thanks,
I never personally fitted the springs, but I think there is guide on fitting the eibachs on the forum.
I agree that honda could have added a wee bit more onto the sport to spice it up a bit.
18s and another 20/30 bhp to start with.

Very nice.
Other than cosmetic and a Bluespark Pro box making 159hp I am keeping mine standard.

Have a look around in my thread history - I managed to fit them as a first time effort without any major issues; I did do a small write up as well - If you have any questions feel free to send me a message or, even better leave a post in the Eibach Spring thread

Ah yes @Haltamer I see you did a really good write-up on how to self-install! Wow - That may have been 'easy' for you maybe, but that's well beyond my level! I've only just decided to start getting involved in the car scene - so I have a lot to learn... My main issue right now is having to save up enough to by the Eibach set! Got other life expenses getting in the way right now, so I'm just going to have to dream about having my car sitting lower for now. At least I have the Maxton kit arriving soon which I ordered weeks ago...



Loving the look of both of you guys' cars though - Great to see 9th Gen Civics with some extra flare!

Have a look on autodoc, managed to get mine for about 120 - dead cheap!

As for advanced, it's the first wheels off spannering I've done - anyone can manage if you put your mind to it - and don't need the car for a few days if it goes wrong

Your car looks great. If you have a few 's to spare then I can highly recommend going for the Bluespark box and also an original CTR aluminium gear knob. The difference the latter makes is unbelievable.

Unfortunately no bluespark for me, I've got the 1.4 (Jazz engine) petrol! - That being said, I do have some ideas regarding manifolds and exhaust in the future that could lead on to a piggyback map to tinker AFRs, but that'd be a long way in the future.

As for knobs, I've got a Skunk2 Billet at the moment - Very hefty; It does improve feel a fair bit.

Edit:

Oops, Thought this was my own post, ignore my crazy ramblings - I've clearly had too much sun
