Hi guys

Im on the look out for a type S GT. Problem is i like everything about the car apart from the plastic body styling. As a result i've been only really looking at black cars as it doesnt stand out as much.

Reading on the forum about people colour coding and was wondering on peoples opinions and results on this. I like the civic in pretty much all the colours so this would open up a lot more possibilities.

Is it just a case of preparing the kit already on the car and respraying it?

Are any colours more difficult to match than others? Or get different results?

How much do you think this will cost?

Thanks

Just on a slight side track, you could stick with it and change the wheels? The 18" upgrades are in the same color and match much better...

I liked it on my old car : )

Suprised more people dont get it done if its only £300. Makes the car look miles better.

I do like the colour coded wheels as well. Dont see many of them about but think i'd rather spend the money on colour coding the bumpers.

Go for colour coding mate.

I had a black type s and it still transformed the look if the car when it was done.

Take your time to find one with Blade alloys then you won't be splashing cash on bigger wheels.

Even if you get black, colour code it. There's a place just outside Liverpool city centre that quoted me £200 for colour coding, worth a little drive if you're only in Chester.

if you buy from a garage ask if they would have it colour coded for you... They might do it to get a deal as it wont cost them much..if anything. Most car dealers will use or have a regular bodyshop..
Sound advice actually. Will probably only cost the garage £100-150 to have it done "in-house", if that. Tell them the ugly trim is a deal breaker.
