The car looks good for a start. I think after you lower it, put a full lip kit and paint the door handles/mirror/lip of your grill, it will look very nice

oh and I dont like that pin stripe...

Other than that... I think the engine bay looks pretty colorful.

get rid of all the company stickers on the car. looks tacky, get rid of the redish chrome badges, that looks tacky too. it was a good idead though. drop it. then get some new shoes. the engine bay dont look HORRIBLE, but it looks more orange than red, and you should have left the radiator cover black.

those very few changes will make your car look ALOT cleaner.

RedDragon333 will become famous soon enough
Its a good start but i have a few suggestions. Loose the tail-lights, no more red in the engine bay, and drop it. And i would paint the radiator shield back to black.

ex2k3 is a jewel in the roughex2k3 is a jewel in the roughex2k3 is a jewel in the rough
- tails, stickers, red emblems, red rad cover, pin stripe

+ 04 tails, NADABOH (needs a drop and blacked out headlights for the n00bz), 16" or 17" rims, black chrome or gunmetal emblems

not bad though

do think we are telling you what you should do, we are giving you our opinions on what we think would make the car look better. its up to you to listen to them or not.

OEM Tails > CF Donut tails
Company Stickers < Orginal Stickers
Drop before rims > Rims before drop

and the radiator cover being red is just taking away from the other accents.

My advice would be to slow down. Don't do it just cause you can. You did a lot of work on the engine bay, but if you looked thru the forums (here,clubcivic,ect) you would see most (all)people co-ordinate the color in the bay to the color of the car.
But you have the right idea, you do it for you-no one else

^^lol...

can't say i agree with everything that was said....but here's my take:
1. get rid of the stickers, red and silver just don't mesh well IMO
2. drop and wheels, in that order
3. easy on the red engine bay, too much contrast and it quickly becomes rice
4. the emblems are just lame, sorry...
5. listen to us or don't, it's your car....but you did ask for good or bad...
6. pon said it best, slow down. take your time and do it right. if you don't i guarantee you'll be doing it again when you realize you don't like it, or it didn't turn out right.
7. have fun. it is your car after all. as long as you like it, who cares??!!

i'm pretty sure that you put 100 lbs. of stickers on your car for other people to see, otherwise, they would be stuck on the inside of your car

o yea and lose the taillights, i have the hardest time figuring out why they look good to some people...
