Hey! Welcome fellow FN2 owner! I bought mine back in July and is my first Honda too. Upgrades, I think the general consensus is that making sure your suspension is tip-top (bushes etc) and a HKS or Skunk induction kit coupled with a good quality exhaust like Tegiwa's are the way to go. Also get the car looked over by someone like TDI North if you're maybe looking for more than a few BHP.

Edit: also, talk to EBC about your brakes, they usually recommend Yellow Stuff pads. The stock brakes only just handles the power of the unmodified car. Use the forum discount code for a bit of money off :D

Mine is stock, as I don't see many in regular trim.

The Civic is a 2007 on a 57 plate so i do believe its pre LSD and its got 90k on it.
LSD came in as std in April 2010 so unless one got fitted later it won't have one.
That's weekend warrior mileage so sounds like it was looked after.
I would check that the age related items have been done:
plugs @ 75k miles
fuel filter 7 years, gearbox oil 8 years, coolant 10 years
valves every 25k miles

if it has all been done on time then you have little to worry about

I've ordered all the service parts for it for my own peace of mind.

You mention Valves at 25k what valves are ye talking about?
