New Member.. Just Got My First Car..

Hey everyone, I got my first car which is a 2007 Honda Civic Coupe 5 Speed. And I never really gave a crap about modifying or anything because i didn't have my own car. and now that i do. im interested in modifying it because i really like my car a lot and i want it to be unique. any suggestions on what mods i should add?

no its 5 speed. so its most likely an ex. how much you looking to spend. you can do cold air or short ram, and then headers and exhaust. then you can lower it if you want. that would make it look better.

With 3,000 you have a lot of possibilities. You could get a mild turbo setup for it for about that price, or you could do all the other stuff like suspension, exhaust, intake, yadayada.

Re: New Member.. Just Got My First Car..

Decent coilovers installed will run you over $1000. If you want your car to look and perform better, the suspension is a good place to start. Full coil overs dropped to a nice level (don't forget front and rear camber kits), an exhaust and intake will make your car look, sound and perform (a little) better. You can get a decent set of wheels and tires for about $800 and there are millions of places on the internet you can order them from, most even offer free shipping. That's about $3000 worth of mods right there if you're having someone else install them.
