Default Matt's Daily Driven FG3

Hey everyone,

Here's my new daily driver! It's a 2012 Honda Civic LX Coupe (FG3). The lease on my GE8 was coming up so I decided to trade her in early to pick up a new car so I wouldn't have to pay the penalty charges for overage on the mileage. My first and second choice was to get an Si or CR-Z, but it was just out of my budget. So I ended up with an FG3. Overall, I'm really happy with my choice. It's a well built machine from what I've experienced so far. It looks great, the chassis is extremely rigid, and it has more power than my GE8, which also a plus. Can't forget to mention that it's a 5-Speed. (Damn I missed driving stick...) I have a few plans lined up for the future. Already have a set of wheels waiting to get installed, but I won't put them on until I get some coilovers.

Engine/Drivetrain:
R18Z1
5-Speed manual transmission
Spoon Sports magnetic drain plug set
Spoon Sports radiator cap

Suspension:
Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs

Brakes:

Wheels/Tires:
Work Emotion 11R Matte Black (17x8 +35) - Front/Left
Work Emotion 11R Matte Black (17x8 +35) - Rear/Left
Work Emotion 11R Matte Bronze (17x8 +35) - Front/Right
Work Emotion 11R Matte Bronze (17x8 +35) - Rear/Right
General G-Max AS-03 (245/45/17) - Front
General G-Max AS-03 (225/45/17) - Rear
Muteki Super Tuner Black lug nut set

Exterior:
AVS door visors

Interior:
Spoon Sports Duracon 5-Speed shift knob

Electronics:

Here are a couple of pictures. I'll post more later.

Thanks bro. I'm going to leave the dealer plates on until I get my license plates from the DMV. If I take them off right now, I'll get pulled over for sure. I don't want to give cops a reason to pull me over.

Today, I stopped by iJDMToy to pick up some LED rear license plate bulbs and a pair of yellow headlight bulbs for the DRL/high beams. They sell quality bulbs and have excellent customer service.

I got a chance to install the iJDMToy LED rear license plate bulb last night. Looks way better!
