It's time to create myself a progress thread in the styling section :-D :cool:

* * * * * * * * * So, here it goes: * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


This is where I came from: A standard nighthawk black 5-door 2.2 i-ctdi from 2007 with 32000km's (about 20000 miles), got it from August 2009.














First things I've put on the car where the Type S rims (I preferred their look above the standard 5-door 17" alloys), the sport gear knob and of course... the Civinfo stickers (I have no dyno runs, but I can assure you guys I've felt lots of bhp improvement :razz:)!























More pictures (and in full resolution) can be found here...
Thanks for viewing!

Grtz, Jeremiah

In the meanwhile...

The bodykit is almost a fact... I've ordered the parts today (cost me almost an arm and a leg :(), the dealer said he should have them already tomorrow morning!! :) :)
So I'm going to put everything on tomorrow or the day after! :D :D :D Can't wait! :dancing2:


The things I've ordered: type-:typer: sideskirts, wheel arches and the front and rear grand prix pack... :cool:




In the meanwhile also some pictures of the little mod's which happened so far....: (took my time today to take some more pics... :p )

* 8000K hid's for the main beams
* Led 360 degree sidelights
* 5000K halogen bulbs in the fog lights
* Ultra white interior led's
* Ultra white license plate led's
* 'Civic' Brake light cover
* Red footwell lights (come on with interior lights)

.

8000K xenon (Doesn't look anything like this blue in real life; they really give a beautiful, distinguished white light with a little hint of blue)!





They do look something like this (little adaption with photoshop) :p


.

White interior led's (front+rear)





.

White license plate led's



.

Red footwell lights (they come on when opening the doors,... and then dim/fade out after a few seconds)

Very nice.
BUT
You need a 'Sport, or 'Type R' Grill

Hell no! ;) :facepalm: Don't wannabe another brick in the wall! I like the perspex grille very much and it definitely separates the Civic from other cars! :cool: :police:



N.B.: If it was a 3-door car, the Type R grille (with red "H") would also look awesome (don't like the sports grille with the chrome H... looks cheap and crappy IMO :p But don't want to offend others who don't share my opinion), but on a 5-door the perspex looks the best!!

Just had my dealer on the phone, apparently some items won't be in before the 20th of April... So it's still waiting for those items to come... :)

Probably going to order a pair of white sidemarkers too then... :p

Pff... Still waiting for the grand prix pack to come in. All of the rest is with my dealer (side skirts, wheel arches, exhaust triangles), but now there seems to be a small problem with the GP pack... :???:

It isn't anymore available in NHB, only in Crystal Black... :-( So once again it's going to get even more expensive! Now I still have to got the GP pack painted...



I've read some threads about the colour difference... (here and here)

My painter advised me to wait and see... He said the colour difference probably wouldn't be really noticable... What do you guys think?? I've also read something about CB being more sensitive to stone chipping... Is this correct?

Last friday at my local dealer:






Dealer called me to say that all items have arrived... :smile:

But... the front- and rear grand prix splitters were the wrong ones (type S instead of type R; so they were not completely painted...).

Anyway, everything turned out fine (even better actually), because the dealer spoke to Honda (again; it seems to be that the part numbers are really confusing) and now it seems that the splitters which I need do still seem to be available in NHB. So they don't need painting after all, which I'm very glad of!! :-D

Normally the last item will arrive tomorrow... :-D :cool:
