Dynamic pack worth it?

Hello, first time poster. Glad i found this forum. The sales of this car in my country (sweden) must be abysmal, i have seen just one on the road and i drive 200 kilometers a day from a large city. This is partly why i want it however

I´m thinking about ordering a 1.6 white civic with the dynamic pack but i have not seen the pack in person or even on photos, except for the few promotional ones which are hard to judge by.

Anyones got this pack or parts of it and have something to say or pictures to show? Are you happy, does it fit well with the car or does it look like a third party afterthought?

Thanks in advance for any input.

Hi!
I'm from Sweden and recently (1 week ago) picked up my White Pearl 1.8 sport.
I'm also enjoying the fact that there's not many of our cars on the road as it's SUCH A GREAT CAR for the price of it.
A Quick search on google about "dynamic pack" presents me with a add-on plastic in front and back.
In my opinion it ruins the most good looking part of the vehicle - the front.
Maybe it will work in black but anything with color it looks like it dropped it's jaw - half a car in front?
The back looks good - but you should imo pick up one "limited edition" instead which gets the back part, sidetrims and front lip trims in carbon fiber replica.
That's what I will buy later if I get the right price on a kit.

Honda Civic Civic 1,8 i-VTEC Limited Edition | Göteborg

Honda Civic Limited Edition 2,2 Sport diesel | Skåne

Oh and here's a link from google searching for the dynamic pack:

Thanks, those pictures gave some insight. Maybe i will go for only the rear bumper.

The limited edition is a great deal with the wheel houses in body color also, but the "sport" is missing out on some features like bluetooth, upgraded sound system, tinted windows, and and not least my preferred engine choice, the 1.6 diesel.

If i did not commute at great length i would probably go for that white sport 1.8 limited edition.

No bluetooth feels like a bummer but theres simple ways around that (Bluetooth adapter into aux).
6,2 l/100km (46 mpg) my first 100km trip with 80% 110 km/h motorway.
Kinda nice

The sound system in the sport is the 6 speaker one and sounds fine really and will be sufficient for a while.
I'm never quite satisfied with the top range oem choices anyway so this is a good compromise.
I like to rev so the petrol is a must to me

Oh and I get windows tinted for about 2000sek instead

Since it seems like most exterior parts are "glued" on i have lost interest. I think my accessory list will be mud guards, ambient lighting, illuminated doorstep and carpets. Well see, hopefully next weekend there will be a price list available from Honda, its the long long long awaited 1.6 premiere by then.

The textile carpets are in the sport.
You should be able to get mudguards cheap as a deal when buying.
Ambient lightning and illuminated door sills are quite expensive if you are not a diy:er.
There's listings on eBay for oem and aftermarket ones.
Myself has ordered aftermarket ones for 1/10 of the price of oem - might not be as exclusive but you get light on all sills not just front doors.
Ambient lightning (footwell) can be done with two led strips, a car cig connector and some cable.
Just letting you know the options and good luck with your decision!

This will be my first real car purchase and i have never been thinking about modifications before. I love doing things myself and a bargain is always nice but fiddling with the car i dont know. Maybe it will grow on me.

Anyway about the interior blue lights. Is there a picture of it somewhere? How is it controlled? Is it always on or only when door is open before engine start? Are there any regular yellow footwell lights like in many cars?

I found this page if some people has not seen it with prices for all accessories, even the aero front.

Most oem ones are only on when the door is open (interior lights on) but anyone with this option, please chime in.

Most aftermarket ones are Always on with ACC-ON (connected to cig adapter)

Thanks for the link to the accessories - appreciate it!
800 SEK for mud guards.. shrugs.. oh well maybe later

Hmm an Quick update as I checked the site with accessories you linked.

STYLING BELYSNING
Illuminates the front foot area to give a cool and sophisticated atmoshere to the interior of your car. Controlled through headlights and opening of door.



Pris: 1690.0 SEK


From what I'm reading it turns on when opening doors and when your headlights are turned on (Either manually or with the AUTO: evening-nights).

Kinda cool

This lights goes on when opens door and then stays on all time while driving- if headlights is on too. When doors are open, lights are brighter, when doors are closed- they dimms for about 50%.

Rick Hondas kit (on here):

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/civinfo...kit-civic.html

Comes on and dims down and goes off with the door lighting, at least on the 8th gen wiring:

http://www.civinfo.com/forum/how/799...hting-kit.html

This isn't a very good video but the guy obvious unlocks and locks the car to activate the lights which are viewed through the window.


You'd have to contact him about a 9 gen guide but I see no reason why it couldn't work the same way.

Yes its wired to the interior lights or (door open) so its not on when driving, just when opening doors.
You can't have both without a RELAY.
If you connect to both door voltage and acc stable voltage - the interior lights will get the ACC voltage and be turned on Always.
If you put a relay - it will do both, as the factory oem that was described above your post.

Here's mine I made myself and installed today.
It's Always on with ACC. I'm going to have the door sills light up on their own when the door opens or else they will hardly be seen at all.
I mean look at this brightness haha and it's in day light...
