Hello everyone. You can call me MJ, A 24yr old guy who lives in Los Angeles, CA. I've been lurking around the forums ever since i created this account a while back. I've been wanting to own a civic ever since i was a kid, when i first saw my uncles Aztec Green Pearl 5th gen sedan EJ1. I currently am a proud owner of a 2000 Civic EX 5spd clocking in at 112k at the moment. I got this baby just December of last year with only 107k all orig miles for only $3000 which was a big score for me. Anyways, hoping to meet some really cool JDM lovers here!

Here are some of the pics.

Welcome! any plans for it?

Thanks! Yes....lots of plans for it. Right now i'm kinda looking to get it a good quick release kit with locking hub for an added protection against the thieves that loves to steal our civics..then secondly i would wanna lower it, still undecided whether to go with just a shock+spring setup or a full coilover as this baby is my DD. Third, i wanna get it some new wheels. Then eventually, maybe put a turbo on it just to give it a little oomph! when i feel the need for it. :)

Plans sound solid. I'd say get some rims too, or at least just take off the hubcaps. I always hated how most of em look lol.

Yea..that's my 3rd item on my to do list. I can't take the hubcaps off coz the steelies are a little rusted..i could paint it but my garage isn't really DIY friendly yet lol..dont got the tools =/
