I was 24 when I got my 2004 ES. It was my very first owned car and I'm half way on paying it off. I'm going to be 27 soon and not in a big rush on modding my car completely.

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

I got mine on June 11th, 2004, when I was 17 years, 11 months and 26 days old. Surprise present for my 18th birthday! I'm 19 now.

Mods:
  • 42% window tints ($110)
  • RSX shift **** (free!)
So I've spent $110 in mods...

PS: I'm not going any lower on the tints for now. Cops bitch me too much already and legal % here is 35%. I can't imagine having it lower.

Technically I got my car when i was 13 when my cousin joined the army and left the car, so my dad gave the car to me since he had 2. It was officially my car when i was 16 and I'm gonna turn 18 in 6 days. I just started working on the car after 2yrs of boredom and because most of the money went to my 2nd car. full time student.

2002 Civic Lx

got my 02 ex coupe in 03 when my son was born. Turned 21 in Sept. so I was 18. I really wanted a ram-air, but being that the civic was gonna be my 5th car, I couldn't afford insurance on the ram-air, thus got stuck having to get the vic. Civic was paid off in 04, only to waste over 20g+ on parts thorugh 05. To many mods to list, but let's just say almost everything on the car has been changed.
