    I was recently in and accident in my 57 plate FN3 civic where the front of my car was damaged this meant I had to replace both headlights, both headlight rails, both bumper brackets, the grill, radiator and condenser. I did this all by myself and it went pretty well (or so i thought.) However...

    Hey am new to forum and wanted to share the results of dying the grey bumpers on my Type S GT. They had been driving me mad for months and ruined the look of the car. Was unable to track down the much documented Plasticare Bumper dye so instead opted for Wurth Black bumper dye - about £28.00. Is...

    I bought a civic 1.8 2008 ex about 6 months ago. It was a cat D that had a minor bump at the rear. The repair job is not great so I am looking at replacement rear bumper and tailgate. My question is will the 3 door type r or type s parts fit my 5 door ?

    Hi all, http://exelcompsite.com Has anybody used these guys before to source their mugen spoilers & bumper/diffusers? Would like to know if it's a perfect fit and quality is good, what's it like compared to 'typerkits.com' Don't tell me to just buy genuine mugen gear, the prices are crazy...

    Been offered a rear colour coded splitter for my civic (I have a type S) and want it all colour coded. Have been offered it for £70 on another site. Seems like it needs a bit of TLC to me. What do you think? I'm not sure a good polish and wax would remedy this!

    Just had a minor prang in my Red EX. virtually no damage apart from the lower part of the rear bumper now has an indentation along a third of its length. Does anyone have ideas as to the cost of replacement and if there are any recommended places near Manchester that do a top job?

    Called my dealer and i think he is talking ******. I need a part code for a bumper for EX petrol. (FK2 i think?) The bumper needs to have the holes in for the washer jets. Spoke to dealer who said that he could not find that one and it is likely to be discontinued due to new civic being...

    Hi, I just managed to skid into the back of someone (only doing about 3mph) and although there's no damage, it's popped my front bumper out on one side, where it meets the lights. I can't push it back in - is there a trick to doing it, or do I have to remove anything else to do so? Thanks,
