Well I my mom had a 95 Civic before I got my learners permit, and we always knew it'd be going to me once I could drive, though only part time at first. Then in August 05, two days after my 19th birthday I got my 05. Today I'm still 19 (obviously). I've spent almost $0 in mods... I've got a sticker ("50+ MPGs", $4), replaced the thumbnail shaped piece by the parking brake (not really a mod but it was missing when we bought the car, ~$5, my mom paid for it), virtual fuzzy dice (from my sister, $3). That's it so far... I need to get a new hood though, but it will probably be stock, so that not really a mod, just a repair. I'm a full time student and I work part time over summer and winter vacation.

got my es when i was 18 a month before my birthday and modded the next month after my birth day. first thing i got was rims and tires, the 4pc type b lip kit, aerospeed lowering srings, a generic brand muffler,a wings west spoiler all at once. Then fresh paint on the kit and spoiler a month later. now im turning 21 this august and my car is totally remodeld and way too many mods to list that i dont wanna think about anymore cause too much money involved. I remember buying a shitoad of stuff and didnt work or broke, man what a waste of money.

Was 16 when I bought the Civic new.
I am 21 now.

Parents financed it with no money down and told me I had to pay for it asap.

I'm still bitter about it because I wanted a cheap used car I can quickly pay off and have fun with; I never really wanted a new car.

You're still young bro and for sure someday you'll want a much better car

Dang man, I thought I was the only here over 21.

I got mine when I was 22, I'm turning 25 this year.

Dam I think I am the oldest so far in here.

I got my RR Civic fresh off the line in 2001 when I was 22. I am now 27 and the car will be paid off in 3 months thank god.

I think I have between $7000-$9000 CDN into it so far but I love it and wouldnt trade it for anything in the world.

I got mine on August 5th, 2005.

I had just turned 18 in July, I paid for it all myself, flat out no payments.

Years and years of saving money in the bank and **** and not wasting on it laptops, ipods, tv and video games paid off.

Plus I have a job making awesome money for an 18 year old(14.00 an hour), so I count my blessings.

Hi guys

Im from montreal quebec so my english is not my primary language so i will do my best.

I bought my car at 28 years old and this is my first brand new car. I bought this car cause i make a big gift for me for stopping smoking pot.

I am very proud to drive my car and i really love it.

Right now i own a civic 2004 coupe sport black.

I expect to do some modification when it will be possible. I would like to look like stock car "sleeper".

I expect to put a new engine when warranty will expired. I think to put a k20a inside i know it a big modification to fit in but i see some ppl they do that.

Maybe if i can do that i will put a turbo.

Right now on my car i do some minor modification on the sound system

i put some infinity speaker, i change my indash cd player for a pionners premier deh-mp7700 and a sub woofer jbl 1000 watts and ampli alpine v12. I must read more to how stop trunk noise when i put my sub louder.

I see some ppl in 7thgencivic they have some NICE car in there.

So im finishing school soon and i will make lot money so i will do modification in 5 months.

Dont give up guys and i really love this site thanx a lot for all diy and ppl who write comment for ppl who need help. Cause its help me a lot.

I was 23 when I got my 05 in feb of 05. I'm 25 now. the car has 60k miles on it and still runs/drives like new. I might have 1k in mods. just struts, springs, intake, front and rear upper strut braces, and a set of 205-50-15 Kumho ASX tires. sort of a necessity cause the factory tires sucked and wore fast. I drive 78 miles one way to work 5 days a week.
