Thanks man. You'll hate ,e even more once I tell you what my wife did. She saw the '04 I wanted and she wanted one too. So she got a 2010 with the navi and all. Lol' I'm jealous of hers tho because hers is black and her windows are tinted. I'm gonna get some tinted windows next week. Just waiting to get paid. 20% all around.

The CG was traded for the TSX. The CB (poor thing) is sitting in my friend junk yard. Just waiting to get sold.

Wow, that's sweet.

The 2nd Gen is really fucking nice.

The 1st gens seem to hold up really well. I see them all the time here, and they are always spotless. Not ragetty at all.

Not too much. Lowering springs and struts, either spacers or rims. Stock wheels are 17x7s. Offset is just too high. Like +55. Intake, tint, shift knob and boot, JDM style headlights(clear turn signals and my headlights are kinda bad anyway), possibly an exhaust. Not sure. Gonna look around to see what options are out there. I dont want anything loud.

Not gonna do too much. Nothing extreme. Thinkin about painting the wheels gunmetal or white....not sure yet....

nice man. as far as the springs. i dont know tho. im thinking Tanabe DF210, H&R Race, or even Tein H Techs. not sure yet tho. I've had Tein before and they seems a tad bit on the soft side. H&R and Tanabe both are good springs with nice drops. we will see tho. i can get any of them for $200 or less. haha. i might buy one set each month and see how they ride and sell the ones i dont like.

Best part about the TSX is the headlights... those low beams have some sick output

Nice ride, take care of it...

I have TEINs and love them. What kind of wheels are you getting?

lmao. dude. i've been looking all over and i dont even know anymore. so many choices. i thinking maybe some Gridd Offroads 17x9s but idk.

XXR 531 17x8s


530s 17x8.25s


or maybe some Cobra R reps 17x9


found that 521s look awesome in 18x10s on these cars:


idk tho. too many choices. im not one to spend too much on wheels. i dont see myself spending $1500+ on a set of wheels. so BBS and Works are out of the question. if i win $700k in the lottery. yeah. ill get a set. but until then, my wheel budget will be below $1k. majority of the time, im looking around in the classifieds for wheels. i find some good deals, just gotta have the money for it.

I love 531s. Cobra wheels look good too. I'm not a big fan of 5 spokes though. How low do you plan on going?

Sounds good. Mine is 1.5 all around. Rocking stock rims for now but looking for 16s. I have a small car so I think 16s are good. Leaning toward 530s but not doing that negative camber.

You should be able to run 16s.

I'm not much on a lot of negative camber. I like to have more than 20% of my tire on the ground. Lol. Functional fitment is what I'm going for. Like the TSX I posted above. Not a massive amount of can,Ber. But enough to fit the 18x10s properly.
