they dont look that bad but they look crap compared to the front, how much would it be to change the rears to look like the front?Mmm personally I wouldn't do this - when you brake the weight is shifted to the front where most of the braking is done. If you up grade the rears without changing the brake bias all you will do is lock up the rear end.
Anyway I don't think they look that bad
You would need to fit an adjustable brake bias valve which means cutting into the rear brake lines - sounds bad and generally is due to the fact that this valve needs to be in a position so that it can be adjusted.
Bear in mind that for normal road driving you will be adjusting this valve so that your new looking bigger brakes exert the same force as your old ones I am sure that many people would disagree with this concept and argue that more braking can be done with the rears. The type R as I have read already had a reputation for shaking the back end during heavy braking and anymore force would exagerate the problem. Stiffer suspension (ouch) and anti roll bars would help but for what reason?
If you want better brakes upgrade the front discs and pads and leave it at that
Vtec - did you read my post? The smaller the better. F1 discs are tiny.yea wats wrong with that? I have seen plenty of cars with massive rear wheel discs
Yes, it's called VSA. Click here. Make sure you haven't turned it off. And get your dealer to fix the other stuff. It's what you paid your £ for.this may be a very stupid question but does the CTR have traction control?
vsa is on by default, i have tried to turn it off before, im sure the vsa doesnt work as even though its still on it still wheel spins
I would be very cautious with such things - you should consider that this is not a Formula 1 car with 50:50 weight balance and your front is much heavier than the rear (which explains the difference in size). It is also hard to predict how the stability program would react to the change (as the rear wheels may then block earlier than the front wheels). Apart from such things, you may be forced to get a registration for the change (in the papers) which is often costly, or even impossible :idea:thinking of changing disc brakes to bigger ones especially on the rear, any ideas? the rear ones looks naf compared to a beamer i saw over the weekend, makes the TR look dingy
take it back to the dealer and get them to stick your city pack back onmore problems to complain, my citi pack for the TR has half stuck on and half hangin off
not good, but at least you're not alone, and many owners say that it resolves itself over time3rd gear problem (a real problem!)
see above post about city packrattling glove box (annoying)
ditto post aboveand serious bad boy buzzing from the lights on the front roof console (again mind bending)
take it back to the dealer and ask for some groves! :lol:when window is wound down in the rain the rain literally 'flows in' (not a problem in my old beamer as the rain flows into the door groves and not into the car,
see above postalso this may be a very stupid question but does the CTR have traction control? becuase I still do wheel spins all the time (my poor tyres)

seriously though, the lines of the Civic are quite flush, so there is nowhere for the water to go apart from in through the window.
Check out the wind deflector thread in buying if it is a real issue for you.
