Smile Civic Type S GT 2.2cdti 2007

Hello everyone, new to this whole car forum thing, bought my car 2 weeks ago and love it, it has the upgrade 18inch wheels and the man before sprayed the skirts and splitters etc and put on the type r spoiler.

I have few plans for the car, mind you i still have some saving to....

I plan on getting a type R grill, maybe get that ordered this week, would also like to lower it, was wondering if any of you know of the lowest springs you can get before getting coilovers, I thought about coilovers but they're costly, but if i can't get low enough springs ill think about getting them once i save up a bit, Is there springs that would lower it around 40-45mm??

Also does anyone know is it possible to get the rear lights that the type R has?? and how much they would cost...

Hi and welcome to civinfo.

You'd be better getting the rear lights from a breakers, as new parts from Honda are the best part of £500 .

Take a look at this too. http://www.civinfo.com/forum/how/608...e-r-grill.html

Take a look at this Type S on Eibach pro Springs.

If you do a search there are a few other civic owners who have fitted them.

Thanks Dave525

yeah dimplyred that looks well, how low do the springs make the car? are they 35mm??

I take there aren't too many members from NornIron Fergs?? Must say i never really noticed many about until i got mine and now everywhere i look i see them, though mostly used as family cars and not too many around my age driving them...

Only 25mm I think, but they 19" wheels make it look lower.

Dimplyred - Yeah i was thinking it was the 19's that helped....don't think i could afford them to be honest like the 18's on it tho so coilovers would probably be a cheaper option than getting a set of 19's, mind you i could only dream of a set of the 19" rage alloys.

Fergs - thanks mate, yeah i think the darker tone to them suit the silver car.

Must say use are very helpful and inviting to civinfo, thanks...
