So i just got a 97 acura cl 2.2l vtec, its pretty much stock except for intake header and exhaust. Its silver with dark gray leather interior, 123k miles and its a 5 speed. Came from some guy who was about 20 and got it from his grandmother, the title shows him having it for a bit less than a month. But anyway, anyone got ideas? rims? lip? tint? anything is helpful. pics soon, heres a sample pic, same color and everything.

Oh yea, dont hate on it just give me ideas.
Looking to do mostly cosmetic, trying to keep it practical and reliable.

that color is awful. But I would just slam it and put some nice rims on it.

I thught you could SC the car, maybe a light lip kit some tint set 18 wheels custom exhaust, and intake and some BOOM since you aint going for power thats about all i got Drop it too. check into comptech maybe they may be they make an SC for it and you can look at RC for injectors, and im not sure about the ECU for fuel mapping but thats all i got

I like it, its nice to drive something that doesnt ride like ass, doesnt have cloth interior, doesnt have rolly windows, and doesnt sound like a facking fart.

To the SC idea...
Lol SC would take all my appearance money =[ im not gonna be all for go, i mean its definatley quick enough. I think its an accord platform? same engine and bolt pattern. But SC could be a possibilty in the future. I know you all hate 18's or even 17's but the cl's have rather large wheel wells. So its either 18's or 17's in gunmetal with polish lip, the "jdm" black housing hid headlights, 35% tint, smoked corners and maybe a front lip which if i get it ill paint the factory side skirts. Oh and a drop, maybe like 1.5" sound good? should look somewhat like this witht he rims headlights tint and signals, but silver and with a lip...

And you think that an N/A 2.2 is quick? Okay.....

No one likes you, thats a known fact on this site, And by quick i meant quick enough for me, its a DD not a project car, thats why i just wanna make it look a little better. If i want speed ill keep my ej2 and build that up.

A bit of a drop is a definate thing on the to do list, like 1.5" and the headlights and signals are for sure too. Now i just gotta decide what i wanna do for wheels and how dark to tint

i think 10% black would look good with that paint...

as for wheels... man, that's gonna take you a while to figure out lol

Its silver, not the red color lol, but that red is sexxxy. Im thingking silver with a polish lip, somethign with a deepish lip too, idk i guess it all depepnds. Maybe black since thats a recuring theme (blackout grill, black housing headlights, Smoked ambers, etc...)

and in three motnhs ive noticed how many people hate you, and your purple camero HAHAHA :rolf:. Not to be harsh or anything, i hate cyber-fights, but you really should read the original post, it said dont hate on the car just give me ideas. And it says on the site rules if you dont like it then ignore it.

Oh, and whats with the free ryan shit? stop kissin his ass you homo.

It also says in the site rules that you can express a dislike for something as long as you are not an asshole about it. And if you read my post again, I didnt hate. All I said was there was not much point in making the thread, asking other people what you should do with your car :roll:, because you already seemed to know what you wanted. Also, stating that an N/A 2.2 is not fast, is not hating on your car. Its a simple fact. Get over yourself. The "Free Ryan" is not kissing his ass, a bunch of mods decided to vote that he should be banned based on what he used to do and not what he is currently doing on the site. Know your shit.

Oh and below I have provided you with a picture of my Camaro, and a picture of a purple Camaro so that you can stop being colorblind and notice the difference.

Purple.....
