Dalaw's 2003 Civic LX sedan

Hey guys, haven't posted on this forum for years. I own my car since new and it now has 143k miles. Car is mostly stock. Here is a list of things that I have done to my car:

-Tokico front struts (stock springs)
-Bilstein rear shocks (stock springs)
-Neuspeed front strut tower bar
-K&N drop-in performance air filter
-DIY cleared front headlamps
-OEM fog lights
-LED parking lights
-LED license plate lights

Give some comments!

nice and the right mods - not too much. How does the blues/bilstein work in tanden?

You mean the 99 Si / 03 EX coupe wheels? At first I want those but then later I like the EP3 ones better. I probably won't get wheels anyways since the car has high mileage I am going to replace the car with something else in 2 years or so.

Tokicos in the front with stock springs is perfect. Nicely damped, good isolation from bumps, yet communicates with the road well, even after 100k miles on these struts.

Rear is a bit stiff, though less stiff than the Tokicos I had before. I also think the rear spring rate feels a bit high for stock springs. And, dont laugh at this, I have a 50 lbs sand bag in my trunk that stabilizes the rear end further. Yes, it adds weight to my car but I like the improved feel from the back.
