I snatched this 02 EX with 94,000 a year ago for $3,900. The guy wanted $4,500 but I negotiated it down due to some issues with it. It needed a new hood and passenger side body work. However it had a clean title and car fax with many maintenance items done at dealership. Also has a working remote starter which come in very handy here in NY!! The interiors are very clean and everything works. A year later I added all the following:
New Hood and re-spray $500
Passenger side Body work $900
Rear spoiler $150
Mud flaps $80
Sunroof visor $0 I had one from my Integra
New Kenwood stereo system with bluetooth $150
CS Sports Strut bar $130
Replaced front struts $300
New rims and tires $700
Front rotors and pads $200
Original chrome exhaust tip $30
Front grill badge $20
Other work I've done myself like Spray painted calipers and drums and also Manifold cover.

Thanks man, I forgot a right lower control arm which a buddy of mine installed for free (just parts $80) and also timing belt, water pump, and drive belts service for $600.

Re: 15 month update

Looks good!!

Tein makes a nice product. I have the Flex on my Fit, very nice suspension.

I have a rear away bar I can sell you if you are interested. Also a strut tower bar but looks like you have one.

Re: 15 month update

Nice sammy. How you like them so far? I've had the Tein Super Street's on my car since 2005 and I couldn't be happier. From what I can tell, the Street Advance are the remodeled version of what I got.

Thanks! I really love the ride on the Teins! No complains so far. The mid damper adjustment is soft enough for daily driving but stiff enough for a nice handling!

Thank you Pier! I agree the money is well spent this car is in great shape mechanically and cosmetically. I'm happy with what I've done to it so far and how it looks!

Re: 15 month update

I think I have mine set at... 10 and 12 F/R (assuming 16 is the "hardest", counted back 6 and 4, respectively). Quite a bit stiffer than stock, but still way comfy
