Not too much glare for HID's in halogen lamps.

?? rice?? tell me what made my car rice??

where to start??

Okay... so the front lip... it's a 99-00 Mugen Style front lip ... on a car that is not even a 99-00.... so while you MAY like it... I think it's ridiculous... get a front lip that was made for your generation civic and stop living in the past with a lip from a previous generation. and to be quite honest, it doesn't look good (even if it were painted)

your plug and play kit... it's whack. They're really no better than your stock lights... they're just "blue" to have that "HID" look. If you want HID, do it right with a retrofit or don't do it at all. If you dont have the money, well you sure did for this HID PnP kit, I don't understand what is so difficult about saving up a few hundred more to do it properly

let's give a demonstration... you vs me


Your HID kit --- hot spot galore... light is frickin everywhere

My HID kit --- nice crisp clean cut-off... you know.. stuff that comes from Real HID setups

^^Well, I sorta agree. HID's in halogen lamps end up being just for color and saying you have HID's. It doesn't look bad, but in the long run you'd be better off doing a proper retro.

As for the lip, I don't think it's rice to put on an older style lip. IMO, I don't like any of the lips out there for later 7th gens. The OE one isn't that great looking and the mugen style doesn't flow well.

Again, these are all my opinions. At the end of the day, it's your car and you have to drive it.

HOWEVER, I REALLLY like the OEM front lip for his generation 7th gen (there's koki or somthing, i dont know)


IMHO, next to the OEM 99-00 Si front lip, this is one of the better front lips Honda has done

Funny I saw on the homepage the sreen name "SeanJohn" as the last poster and the name rang a bell (because I havent been on here for centuries) Who knew it was you.

Anyways I saw the last few posts by Sean John (forgot your real name) and was like damn here sure is being a prick give the guy a break.......and then the pictures loaded:wak:.Please take the lip and melt it down. Im not one to judge but he does make a valid point. The lip doesnt go with the car's lines. I hope you dont plan on swapping in a ZC motor in next. The foggies look pretty cool but the HIDs are also all over the place. Get it done right the first time bro. Notice no one made any negative comments about the foggies. thats because they look like they belong there , the lip doesnt. Sorry to be harsh. If you need some inspiration just take a look at my car, lol. (search for my recent pic threads)

On that note , SeanJohn a man of your taste/knowledge picked an EX over Si. hmmm, what gives:?:

IDK.. :x.. I have to agree with SeanJohn although I dont think his lip follows the contours of the 8th gen, like the OEM kit. Get a new lip bro.
