So yeah,

Just bought my first Honda Civic. My last car was a Ford Mustang but that was destroyed, bought the new Honda and now I am looking into them. I was told they are all-around good cars, drove a few but never owned one. My Car is a '03 Honda Civic LX 2 Door Coupe, and I am definitely going to be doing some projects on it. A few pics via my Phone are in my Garage link so yall can see, but I will post it here just to be sure.

Any idea's or suggestions for it will be nice, and yes the Rims and Tires came with the Car when I bought it. Oddly enough as well.

Well I can definitely drive. My Mustang was a 5 speed, but eh I can only do Manual in Fords for some odd reason, guess because of the clutches they sport. Anyways, yeah I was thinking of getting into the Auto Sports, I am a Bellman so I get crazy hours but most of the time I get them cause I want them.

About the drop, I think I need to switch out the tires. Everyone that I know who does tuning has told me, something along the lines of they are too big and at times they rub against my under-panels. Any idea to what they mean??

And how much would that change from auto to man cost, still on a budget. New Car, New Apartment, still making payments to both lol

Heh Sounds good to me, I am still just going through lists of parts. Trying to find them cheap but they have to be decent. Also I was thinking of getting a paint job done to fit my color Blue fetish :P I was thinking of getting some Blue bulbs put in to start it all off ;)

Welcome to the site! I know you said the rims came with the car, but I like them regardless.
