looks better with the spoiler i think soo!!! nice ride tho

02-04-2008, 10:46 PM
I like it better wingless, clean so far :thumbup:

02-04-2008, 10:58 PM
clean car bro,

02-05-2008, 04:36 AM
fucking nice. :thumbs up

I like the driving pic with lighter on the right hand lol

02-05-2008, 04:57 AM
Really clean man, :thumbs up for you. Keep up the good work.

02-05-2008, 06:50 PM
thanks guys, i wasn;t a fan of the em2 spoiler, i think the lines one the car help support a consistant balence without the spoler on, aero kit alos makes up for that too. I think body wise all i really need are side markers, and some nice rims.

02-06-2008, 04:41 AM
if you can find a trunk lip, maybe a CF trunk lip(like the M3 trunk lip), that would look uber nice. on your em2.

May i reccomend a slight window tint to make the black, look even sexier?

02-06-2008, 06:58 PM
nice ride :thumbup:

02-08-2008, 12:26 AM
nnot gonna rock the tint, but i've been lookin for a good "lip-like" spoiler for a long time, there was one i found but it must of been discontinued because it's not on ebay anymore, niether anywhere i look, if u guys ever find some thing like that let me know asap i will much greatful :smokenana"

02-08-2008, 06:17 PM
looks nice
wingless ftw
em2 look way better without the spoiler

03-01-2008, 01:36 PM
niceee carrr looks like mine except better haha....i am thinking of lowering my car. just wondering where did u get those shocks and for how much?

03-01-2008, 01:51 PM
nice car but that's a hideous head unit.

03-02-2008, 02:22 PM
niceee carrr looks like mine except better haha....i am thinking of lowering my car. just wondering where did u get those shocks and for how much?

i got mine from truehonda.com , i screwed them up though, if u don't know how to do it then don't

03-02-2008, 02:24 PM
nice car but that's a hideous head unit.

i like it, i do want to paint it like a flat black so dosen't looks so noticveible, plus i like the front and center AUX port, girls love it

03-02-2008, 09:40 PM
truehonda damnnn those r some gooood pricesss haha

03-07-2008, 04:28 AM
I love the spoiler!

How long was the drive?

03-07-2008, 10:27 PM
the drive was like 3ish days, our first night we stayed in vegas, my friends haven't been there before then, keep in my this was at the end of summer 2005, so we had a dangously good time, not for me i plaed it conservitive that night, but it was such a crazy drive. I would do it again in a heartbeat if i had enough pot.

03-14-2008, 05:58 AM
that cd player stands out like a black man at a kkk meeting

03-14-2008, 09:39 AM
that cd player stands out like a black man at a kkk meeting

Or a white man in a black panthers meeting, since it's bright silver in a black background.

03-15-2008, 07:52 PM
I would do it again in a heartbeat if i had enough pot.


03-17-2008, 07:07 PM
looks good...some nice rims would definetly boost it up..lol

03-17-2008, 09:24 PM
4show, rims are on my summer objectives list

04-15-2008, 03:25 PM
update coming soon....

03-10-2009, 04:52 AM
You had a aftermarket clutch put in but no aftermarket flywheel!?!? Dude that's the best upgrade I've given my car. It made my car feel real sporty not to mention more hp and torque. Anyway, it looks good dude.

03-12-2009, 01:03 PM
my pioneer 4000UB or whatever its called has front AUX & usb port from the back but they supply the extension if you dont like removing your head unit just to plug a freakin usb, but nice ride, btw that head unit is from a special edition civic 2003 or 2004 called reverb? I was sucked into a deal on getting a reverb and the sales guy was trying to sweeten the deal by showing me the head unit, he just didn't know thats what literly decided for me as a NO lmao he was all happy to show me it but honestly if he didnt it would of been better off, anyways nice ride :)

03-17-2009, 04:31 PM
Nice whip !!!!

03-17-2009, 06:12 PM

car update: sued inserts are going in this week, plus i just got my ep3 wheel in the mail, so ill be putting that on soon and since i've been focusing so much on interior (mainly cuz i have no cash for the engine upgrades i want) recently i think i'll be buy a driver side seat soon, non-adjustable

let me know what u think

ps, rear disc also being installed in the next few weeks

03-17-2009, 06:40 PM
btw hopefully the pics are big enough now, thanks for the comments always up for talking about my car on this thread, so don't forget to tell me what u think so far

03-17-2009, 06:42 PM
looks good man

03-17-2009, 06:44 PM
Looks very clean, digging the wingless, new wheels + some small touches, a subframe would be pretty dope. Didn't know you were rocking yellow's I always wanted em on my civic, bought em on Ebay once but got ripped of as they didn't fit my car had to sell em.

03-17-2009, 08:17 PM
my konis are good but they weren't without problems, my car hasn't been the same ever since i wore out my yokohamas, i miss those soo much

03-19-2009, 06:14 AM
looks really good bro...nice and clean

03-19-2009, 03:31 PM
thanks guys, so im debating with myself maybe u can help...
got some money and i have to makes some repairs on my supenion

but here's my problem

things that need to be installed are
rear discs
ep3 wheel

but i really want to buy a driver's seat, and if u think that's tacky, ur rite because it is but i still want one for me, but it's either that or save for some wheels, which i would spend most of the money on tires then

03-19-2009, 03:53 PM
Wow Ac, it looks good man!

03-19-2009, 04:01 PM
shits ugly as hell....

haha jk pics turned out bomb, as far as mods go....lets do ur inserts as soon as it gets warm, I agree with the seat, and u shud add "new muffler" to your list. Funny that u went back right after we got kicked out lol

03-19-2009, 04:11 PM
Looking good, I too want a drivers seat, with low mount bracket. But, I need a wide one to fit me shoulders and one that will never rock.

03-19-2009, 04:40 PM

control arms and boot
and rear tail light

Things that need to be installed soon:

03-19-2009, 07:12 PM

03-20-2009, 02:34 PM
just get some ep3 seats or some s2k ones

i need my hips hugged, plus i feel that those seats aren't worth the price and they're not what i want for my car now

03-20-2009, 03:44 PM
which ones the s2k or the ep3
i was lookin at a magazine today and saw some new special rx8 r3 and it had some sweet recaros in it, but i bet they are hella expensive

03-20-2009, 04:05 PM
yeah i just want one sparco sprint 5 right now, thats all i can afford

03-20-2009, 05:16 PM
i was lookin for ep3 ones but couldnt find any so i bought other stuff for now

04-06-2009, 09:51 PM

06-07-2010, 05:54 PM
mad props to bheims for cleaning the shit out of that my CD deck, that 's the cleanest its' been since i bought it in 05

06-07-2010, 05:56 PM
Just saying that I thought I'd miss the shit outta mine, had it for 8 years. Surprisingly though I don't.

Maybe if someone tried to jack your civic then snagged your wheels you'd be in the same boat as me lol not downplaying yours at all.

06-07-2010, 06:01 PM
i think i've only had one attempt of someone trying to jack my car, there were some marks on my passenger side door, looked like someone tried to pry it open nothing that my man Skan couldn't fix, low cost
