its funny. when this guy posts his car with the kaminari lip kit, most people hate it. But when Drew22mader posts his car with the same sides and rear he wins the peoples choice award. this goes to show that color choice is everything.

Looks great so far. If I had that car i'd look into these things:

(maybe) cleared headlights
(maybe) 04-05 taillights
powdercoat wheels gunmetal or black, or get some less busy 17s or 18s

Either way the car looks great as is, the wheels just stand out alot cause of contrast. Good job though. I really like it no matter if you change anything or not!

Its looks good as it is right now, i love the Kaminari Lip kit, the only thing i could see changing if you were to change something would be the wheels. Seems to me the wheels just stand out too much for the paint job and doesn't go well with it. May a black with a polished lip or something like that. 17's or 18's would go nice with it, hell 19's if feel good that day your ordering them, heh.

And with people telling you to remove everything and put HFP and OEM this and OEM that and take this off and take that off and add this and and that, I know they mean well but this is your car. I remember when i used to be like that and cared more what people thought than i did, 02_Civic_Rida told me to do my style, cause its my car and i drive it, not everyone else. I still ask for opinions don't get me wrong, but when you ask something and get and answer to completely change your car, might as well throw that all out cause then you'll be driving someone elses design. Nice car man, good to see another person from Ohio reppin.

I find that funny too... and I have notice that on other "what do you think about my car threads". Yes itís the color choice but it's also how it is presented (how the pic is taken). Drew22mader did his artistically in a way but if he took just normal box camera shots in a Wal-Mart parking lot of his car it would look like a lot of other peoples on here. Not dissing on Drew22mader because he did put time and money into his car like everyone else on here. Respect. But all of this is another subject.....

All IMO.... I think it's the rims that are clashing with everything else. The current rims are a little to busy like "diskreet" said. I would get some color matching rims (Inca Gold) with a good size polished lip. And if you don't like the Inca Gold rims I would do a glossy black with a polished lip. Also push up the size a bit to a 18" at least or maybe a 19".

I don't care for the side mirrors but wonít hate. And I would black out the headlights and keep the amber in.

Everything else looks good on the car. Just remember it you car and nobody elseís on this web-site. Keep it up.

19's will fit for sure. I'm going with 19's this summer and i know of at least 5 people with 19's on there civic, hell Blackbullet has 20's on his, take in consideration he also has an air ride, but look at others cars, extreme02civic has 19's on his and he is lowered too, i plan on tucking mine a tad. Just like people said, wheels make the difference. You can stick the hottest wheels on a not so hot car and it will quickly become alot better, unless its just a piece of **** car. But you take an awesome car and put some not so great wheels on the car and you ruin the look, i'm not saying you ruined your car at all, it is still hot with the kaminari kit on it, i wouldn't have bought the Kaminari sides and rear if i didn't like them. Also the way you take pictures is also a big factor of how a car looks. The car is the same no matter what but the way you show people the car can make a difference. Just like they said about taking a pic of a car in Walmart, it will look like you just snapped a photo of it and went on. Taking your time and finding the best spots and correct lighting takes time and alot of learning. Hell i am no master at taking pics by no means, i'm barely that good either, but from watching others take pics and learning the manual functions it has helped a ton. Talk to infinite about cameras and lighting, there is so much more to it then just snapping a quick picture, look at 02civic_ridas, he takes some excellent pictures, but also takes his time finding the right lighting and doing some research and doing touch up in photoshop.

The color of the car has a big part too in certain wheels, lip kits, etc. Do what you like and not what everyone else tells you to do.

Yea i did, i went through and looked at the other day when i first talked to you. I still say go with a black and polished lip wheel either 18 or 19" and lower it more, that would be sick. Also, when taking pictures try to find better lighting, the pictures look grainy. Make sure when taking pictures during the day the sun is to your back, i found that out the hard way and had everyone telling me the same thing too.

How about this, you tell us how much you have to spend and we'll give you suggestions, first i would say wheels, and if you have the money to do coilovers then i would do them so that you can slam it down or however height you want it. Black on top would also looks sick but costs money, so just tell us how much you want to spend and i'm sure everyone on here could tell you how to spend it.
