EM2 civic progression thread

Recommended Posts

Ok so most of you know the T/A is gone and I picked up this EM2 last week. Obviously I'm not rolling in cash but I figure why not make a thread now for suggestions and what not.

Car: 2004 Civic coupe. 1.7l Vtec :dancingpontiac: , 5spd, Clean as a whistle.

Plans: Keep the car as clean as possible yet adding some personal touches without fitting into the ricer critique. That being said the car only has tinted windows as of now.

HID's (have but aren't working :lol2: )

Clear the headlights

Coilovers

Set of 17"s (opinions welcome)

Gauge pod (yes a gauge pod soley because I love gauges.)

Short throw kit

OEM foglights and OEM switch (in shipping apparently) with HID's.

Call me crazy but I saw a silver civic with red capet. Oddly i thought it looked really really good. But I probably won't do such a thing.

Only pics I have now is when I picked it up but it will work for a starting reference.

Comments, ideas and bashing welcome.

I am thinking of a bookshelf style wing in the back. They make great beer holders for some bench racing.

Window tint is the serious suggestion.

The windows were tinted by the dealer as part of the deal. I have pics I'm just waiting for photobucket to upload them. They are 35% front and 15% rear. Wanted to keep them legal since I really don't need tint tickets every week.

IF....thats a big IF....i still have this car in a few years and after I graduate and have money to burn, you bet that a k swap would be in the books. But I need to keep reliable for now.

I know your style, if you have it your way with the coupe, I'll be one of the very few Hondas I know I'd want.

Also, I just noticed, do a rear disc swap soon.

Ah you know me well. Indeed you will not be disappointed. Give me about a year or so and it will be looking muuuuch better. Disc swap is in the plans aswell, but not high on the priority until I get some shoes for it.

BUT I am looking into the TE-37 knock offs really hard....just debating between bronze and silver...

With your shade of silver, gunmetal. Seriously, gunmetal TE-37 lookalikes with the lip kit painted to match, you'll be baller.

I swear, do we ever keep anything stock? :lol2:

I'm sure gunmetal would look good. But if I were to color match the wheels to the body, it would keep it SUPER clean. But If anyone wants to photoshop some with the different color wheels on it, that would be amazing.

i agree to both points. keep it clean would be kewl but the gunmetal would be kewl too. just have to figure out what YOU want. :dancingpontiac:

Stop talking about the k20 swap, it gets me all tickly in the pants...lolol

Thanks bill, its by no means as fun as the T/A but its a fun little car. Still looking for ideas for the car. But have to be simple...

Found some guy that put blue lit gauges from an 04 hybrid and looks SICK but he won't give up the how-to on the install.
