not sure about those rims on the white, ud' have to get something else to go with em... im with u on the tint, i dont like it, but it made my car look so much better, plus im in FL the sun kills the interior .... so not bad, i guess just need to do some other things.

yea that's what i was thinking, the black door handles and stuff would accent black on white....and the cf hood and lip would really add to that...

and tints look great on beamers and SUVS etc...but i dont really like it on small civics etc...

hehe great minds think alike...

looks pretty nice. i wish i got the white over silver, but i wanted black interior for sure. anyways, it looks nice, you should check your dealers price for the trunk trim, for my car it was less than 20, already painted and whatnot. takes 2 mins to put in, and looks a lot better, imo.

Dark tint makes a car look cheap no matter what it is, I had 20 sides/rear and 35 on the entire windshield of my truck n 20 all the way around on my civ now, looks good when you can still see shadows inside the car but no defined lines [imo] anything darker looks like black spray paint

well, that is your opinions, but imo, white with tints looks so sexy esp with black rims and polished lips.

Unless of course, financially he didn't want one.


Civic looks good, i'd keep those wheels just like that too. Maybe polish the lip?

In that case, get a mild tint. That will also accent the CF, as well as your rims. I really wouldn't paint them white. But its your car, do as you will.

I was referring to his statement and I proved it using this car. So does this car look cheap?

you really don't know anything about that light cover do you? Check the price of Original Top Secret light cover and see how much they cost. Btw, the post originally was for tint and not light cover. So, if you want to flame about someone else's ride, please keep it to yourself.
