Why this thread is still open, i don't know. All of these questions have been answered hundreds of times.

why it hasn't been moved to Member's Rides talk, i also don't know.

Honestly though, you could have found 95% of your questions answered if you searched.

lol ANY lip that fits a sedan will fit a coupe front and sides. any front is interchangable. most rear lips (all but 1 if not all) fit both. and as long as side skirts are straight they fit both. the sedan and coupe have the same lengths and general shapes for lip kits.

headlights: stay with stock unless you want to do a retrofit to some aftermarket projector headlights. installing them is easy. getting the parts is time consuming.

rims: get whatever the funk you want. it shouldn't matter what we think.

bolt pattern: 4x100

body kit: ebay, ******. ebay and google are both your best friends.

I don't mind ebay but for other things when it comes to car parts, i always get bad luck cause they have poor fitment and such.

anyone have the same issue?

full body kits on ebay (i.e. full bumper replacement) will have poor fitment and low quality. they are usually the manufacturers rejects, thus the low price. just go for the lip kits and you should be fine. anything aftermarket wont fit 100% anyways.

But i will mod the outside a bit, but need you guys to help out on where i can find these parts cheap used is ok as long as it works.

Projector Headlights

OEM kit

Rims what is the offset this car is safe with and im only going w/ 17's

Drop what do you guys think of eibach sportlines? where can i get them in stock?
you can find the projectors and oem kit pretty much anywhere. search around the site a bit (some might have given you links in here...i didnt look at them). try tornactive.com, that guy used to be a member here. from what ive heard hes cool and good to deal with. not sure though. check out the sponsored vendors on the site, im sure they will have what you are looking for.

for offset, i think 45 is recommended. i would get lightweight 16's instead of 17's. even "light" 17s will most likely weigh the same as stock, but they will still be slower from a stop than stock because all the mass is farther to the outside of the rim on 17s. plus ive found that although theyre not too bad, 17's are still pretty harsh on the ride, especially if youre lowered, because of the low profile tires. with 16s you wont have that hard a ride. i had a 2001 lx sedan, and my CD skipped like a mother with 17s and a drop.

for the drop, sportlines are good. eibach is a good brand. if you have a sedan, go w/ either goldlines or neuspeed. they make sedan specific springs. if you have a coupe go with neuspeed, goldline, H&R, eighbach, tanabe...those are all good brands. you can find reviews for all of those on the site. you can find springs at wholesalehyperformance.com, machiii.net, neuspeed.com, nopi store (forgot the site name), a bunch of places...check out the sponsored vendors.

Sir5950 is an unknown quantity at this point
I use Enkei RP03 17' rim PCB: 4x 100 offset 42 . Yokohama V550 Tire 205/45/R17. Important is that the new rim must be lighter than stock so no power loss.

I using TYC projector headlight, it look great with black backing.

I get Civic type R (EP3) stock shock for replacement, it is much much better than civic stock shock, the handling improve so much. You get plugn play, no mod required.
