Re: My Daily driver - 05 Civic

A friend has 5% tints in the back. At night, its like the windows are covered in black paint.

Careful reversing!

Re: My Daily driver - 05 Civic

Yea 5% is sooo dark, my friend has them and has to put down all his windows to reverse at night so he doesn't accidentally hit something or someone.

Re: My Daily driver - 05 Civic

Thanks guys. Tried taking out my tail lights to spray tint them but it seems like its going to be a hard job .. theres something up underneath of them that i dont want to break off, someone know how to remove these or would it be easier just to use my painters tape and some random things and tape off everything on the back of the car and spray it like that? I was waiting for the spray tint to be done before i took some pics

Personally, I have an AEM SRI I got used from a guy locally. But most of the guys say that all intakes are basically the same on our civics and the only thing that matters is to put a quality filter on the end. They recommend the AEM Dryflow filter (Thats what I got right now) because it's supposedly one of the best.

I second that. im running an ebay sri(was a "cai" but the filter sat behind the radiator fan rofl) and im using an aem dry flow. The intake was$30 and filter about $30. I just used a 2.5" to 3" adapter then a short piece of 3" pipe then filter

P.S. Read the imprint on the filter element on the aem dryflo(mine says k&n)

Re: My Daily driver - 05 Civic

Whats a good exhaust? I liked the sound of the apexi n1 or whatever it was, how much does one of those go for? Also, bottomed it out on a rough road and now it has a random exhaust leak, must have hit the reasonator or whatever is up the middle of the car, probably going to cut it off sometime. Going to get to spray tinting the tails and park lights eventuly give me time, getting new tires too.

Re: My Daily driver - 05 Civic

HKS Hi-Power and Apexi are the best sounding 7th gen exhausts imo.

Check out the exhausts dezod carries..

Re: My Daily driver - 05 Civic

seems awful expensive for a bit of piping and a coffee can, how much would just the muffler run me? i did stainless x-pipe duals with flowmasters for half the price of some of those setups almost

Re: My Daily driver - 05 Civic

A lot of work goes into designing an exhaust, then producing, marketing, packaging, shipping it to distributors and then add multiple layers of profit. I somewhat agree though, exhausts can be expensive. EVO, STi, Ducati exhausts can run over $5000, it's still just a bit of piping and a can, but there's even more engineering time put into them.

You can get just the muffler for like $80-120, it just won't sound as nice.

Yeah. I would go k-swap over anything but I dont plan on trying to make a 4 cylinder go fast. Its my daily driver. I also decided against exhaust, I'm just getting a set of factory fog lights (if someone can find me a good pair with all the wiring let me know) and upgrade my speakers. I already got a new cd player for it, traded my cb radio for it.

The floor is fixed by the way, a jack sunk into the ground, slipped off the frame and went through the floor.

That's what I did too, although AEM makes a 2.5" filter pretty sure.

I'm pretty sure that's cuz K&N own them now.

Re: My Daily driver - 05 Civic

Got my new cd player in now, its some off brand (freeway) but i got it for pretty much nothing traded an old cb i found in my basement for it. It sounds a lot better, going to get an aux cable and listen to my ipod through that. Getting some speakers soon and for christmas getting some smoked fogs and headlights and gonna actually get my tails tinted.

Re: My Daily driver - 05 Civic

There is actually a great DIY on here for tinting tail lights. It's easy, cheap, and you can get them the exact shade you want.

Re: My Daily driver - 05 Civic

I think I just might take it to an autobody place around here, I seen my friends do there own lights and they turned out good but it looks way better when theres like 3 layers of clear coat and stuff versus just a can of night shade.
