Ray's 2008 Civic DX-A

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the site and new to owning a Honda Civic. Here, I'll show you the progression of this car which will go from being a random car on a lot to being my personal stallion. This machine is going to go through some changes over the next few years, it will be interesting to keep a timeline and I kind of record to see how it works out.

We'll start off with this plain looking photo, one of the only ones I have at the moment. I didn't take any pictures during the test drive. Here you are.



Not a bad start. A black coupe with 110k miles, but where will it go from here? I'll give you a hint, the next time you see a pic of this car, the windows are going to be tinted. Well, there are a few more pics I could throw up but I think I'll just start with the main front and back shots I have.



So, there you have it, that's how it starts. Thanks for reading my post

Aha, sorry man, I actually didn't even take those pics, they are off the website. I'm sure they would be better but I got them off my phone and the ad isn't up anymore so I can't go grab them on the puter now. If I had taken pics I think they would probably be a little bit nice than those. As soon as I have the car though, I'll get some better pics.

Welcome and congrats, looks good!



Why does it seem like Canada gets those wheels on so many different cars?
(I swear I saw some that style on a Canadian Fit -- of all things.)


I've only seen those on 8th gen Hybrids and 9th gen HF here in the US.






I actually have a set of those to replace my steel OE wheels and hubcaps, with OE LRR tires already mounted. I figure they are lighter and more aerodynamic than the steelies, and a whole lot more so than the 18's I have on it now.
I thought maybe I'd run them in winter, but we didn't get much winter in my corner of the planet this year or last.

Interesting, thanks for reading my post. I'm probably going to keep them for my winter tires. They're 15's so it's kind of good cause when I go to buy winter tires it'll be cheaper. I also still have my old summer tires (in quite good condition), however they're 16's so I'll have to get new rims before I can use them. Then, try to get rid of the old rims (4 bolt pattern) and hopefully get a bit of cash for them.

Thanks again for taking the time to check out my post

Re: Ray's 2008 Civic DX-A

I've got a new pic, sorry about the dirt I haven't gotten around to cleaning it. Something to do with the fact that it's still winter here.

In case you didn't notice, I've taken that plastic thing off my hood, have to say I didn't like it. Also, in the first pics you notice the dealer's stickers on the front bumber and beside the license plate. I took those off using some kind of overpriced adhesive removal product. Did it even help? I'm not really sure, but the stickers are off and so is that ugly plastic thing. As soon as I get it washed for the first time, I'll get a few pics of it all shined up. I still like this pic anyway, it was nice out and the first time I've taken it out onto the highway for more than 10-15 minutes

Check it out

Re: Ray's 2008 Civic DX-A

lol "ugly plastic thing", I agree through the bug deflectors are ugly.

what are your next plans? the tint looks good BTW, and i have to agree with the other guys, I hate those dinner plate rims. WHY they put those on so many cars up north here is beyond me. I would rather hub caps. car is looking good though!
