Re: How old were you when you got your Civic.

Bought a brand new 02 ex coupe when I was 21. Went through a ricer phase(badged it as an SI even though it had the stock steelies). No real mods. traded it in March of 09 for a 05 ex coupe. Old one had 113k at trade in and the new one had 46k when I bought it. Now its at 72k and running like a champ.

Mods:
Rokkor full coilovers
Yellow egay fogs
Type R front lip
Apex N1 style exhaust
6000k HIDS(low beam only)
RSX side markers(not installed yet)
Rear tow hook
Egay Short ram intake with AEM dryflow filter

Future mods:
Progressive rear sway
Short shifter
Window tint
Roof visor(maybe)

Bought my first Civic, a 1992 Si, brand new in 1992 when I graduated from college at 23. Just picked up my second Civic, a 2007 Si, last week at 41.

Re: How old were you when you got your Civic.

I got Civic when I was about 18 or 19, my first car...

At first I hated it versus my mother's Subaru Forester because it took effort to steer and there wasn't nearly as much insulation between the engine and me. But it grew on me and now I love it!

I like how it isn't all computerized... you know... not that much that can go wrong with it as far as sensors are concerned. Thank goodness it isn't drive-by-wire. That is no fun. With my mother's forester, when you punch on the gas, nothing happens for about .25 seconds until the computer figures out the math and supplies fuel to the engine!

I gave it HID headlights last year because I was tired of the short-life Halogen bulbs that are brighter than normal headlight bulbs.

I put in a high-output alternator a while ago and bought a 2,000 watt continuous Inverter from a trucker and bought a window air conditioner to put between my back seat and trunk because i was tired of the hot summer! Made a small hole in my trunk for a high-speed 120mm computer fan to blow hot air out of the trunk..


I got train horns about 5 months ago because I was tired of crotch rockets passing between me and other cars during rush hour... turns out that the horns have many many uses!

Anyway, it a great dependable car that I'm not concerned about getting a nick or a scratch every once and a while.. its my baby though

Thumbs up Re: How old were you when you got your Civic.

I'm 23 years old and I just got my first Civic. It's a 2009 Si. I've been driving around an '89 Acura Legend since I was 15 and it started costing more to repair it than it was worth. Don't get me wrong. The car is still a beast at its age.

Started searching around for a new car to drive and came acorss the 8th generation Si. Caught my attention immediately and it became the only car that I wanted.

After weeks and weeks of searching for one that wasn't tampered to hell with unnecessary modifications I came across one here in Georgia. I've been driving it for a few months now and it is so damn fun to drive. I couldn't be happier with my decision I'm sure I'll be uploading photos of it soon once the weather clears up and I can give it a bath.

Re: How old were you when you got your Civic.

I'm 20 years old and always wanted a civ. I rolled my Nissan xTerra this past winter (my dad's car to beef up his manhood). Bought a 2004 LX sedan, white, stock everything (no tint) for $9200 with ONLY 15,900mi and has a clean title. Apparently the previous owner bought it for their nanny to drive the kids to school in. Well the nanny became terminally ill, so they sold it, since they have no use for it. So far just had tint done, but looking for a roof rack since I surf.. and eventually rims. I will have 5 years to slowly modify it! check back then for pics haha

Re: How old were you when you got your Civic.

Almost 50! We needed a 3rd car and I saw this one for $2,750 and bought it (98 HX Coupe), figured what the heck. So now I'm asking myself, "why did I wait so long?" We have an Odyssey and I let my kids share my 07 Corolla, if that tells you anything!

Re: How old were you when you got your Civic.

I'm seventeen, turning eighteen in December and I got my 2012 civic EX sedan just a month or two ago
At first it was mostly my parents pushing for it, while I was leaning more for a used car with more power and better looks, because then I thought the civic looked dumb. Finally we decided that it's better to have a car that's reliable and gets fantastic gas mileage rather than a used car, and I'm glad they overruled me
The more I look at it, the more I love the looks of it. It's a fantastic first car, and I'm sure I'll keep it for as long as it'll run

Re: How old were you when you got your Civic.

I first bought a 1997 Honda Civic Ex when I was 19. It had 167k on the engine and body when I got it. I sold it just before I went on this deployment for $2200 with 220k on the motor. I am now 21. I just recently bought a 1999 Honda Civic Si w/ 45k miles on the B16A2 motor and turbo system already installed. I have major plans for the car. I paid $9000 for the Si and plan on dumping another $5k into the car. Looking at achieving 300 Whp.

Well, I've redirected my energy and found the joy in different cars other than the Civic. Note that it doesn't mean I don't like the Civic, which is why I'm on these forums.

Wow, got my first civic at 16, it was an 85 Hatch. That was in 99. Then bought an 87, chopped the roof and made it into a convertible. Now After my 04 Intrepid just bit the dust, I am the owner of a 01 LX Coupe.
