Had my Civic for over 2 years now, thought it was about time I made it a bit more unique, so had it colour coded and wheels refurbished and sprayed. Also fitted a type r gear knob and gaitor, as well as better discs and pads all round. Let me know what you guys think :)

Thumps up! Love the alloy colour, might do that. How much did you pay for the refurb?
I had them done at the same time as colour coding, but for just alloys I was quoted between £200-350 at various places which was for refurbishing all of them and then giving them a full spray.

I went to 5 different places in and around London, and got between £450 and £750, the place I settled on took the whole kit off, sanded it down, primed it and put multiple layers of paint on, they had the car for 5 days and it's a really good finish.

Wow I was thinking it'd be around the £300 mark!

I'll have to tell the missus it was haha.

So was I!! I've got a 6 year guarantee with it though, so if the paint starts flaking at all during jet washing or anything, I can take it back and they'll redo the whole kit full of charge.

Thanks guys, Schlieb; a couple of places said it would be cheaper if I removed all the bits of trim myself so they didn't have to mess around with all the clips, don't know if this helps?

Ah cheers buddy, might look into doing that myself then.

I'd go for the s spoiler if you can find one.. Hard work finding them though lol.

Think that's what I'm leaning towards, would certainly be a lot easier to fit! And even harder finding one already painted the right colour...
