    I can't help you with that but i can definitly tell you what not to do..

    Don't:

    Put stickers all over your car

    Don't put Fake Badges on your car

    Slam your car to the ground with only springs(if your gonna do it do it right get either a full coilover system or a strut/spring combo)

    Don't buy an unknown brand exhaust that rattles and sounds raspy when your driving.(go with the major names)

    you mean shock/spring?


    yeah you wouldn't want your car to be bouncing 50 times just by shifting. evey racer wannabe in my city is like that.

    I hate that teal color. If you can afford it, repaint it! It has no chance of ever looking good. If you must keep the color, do not do any type of heavy body work. Don't mix yellow or purple graphics, etc. with it.

    I agree. That teal color they used is really bad. Can't understand why they were able to sell so many Civics with that color. Save your mod money for a repaint.

    DON'T: put any wings or stupid-looking 'bigmouth' aka 'cocksmoker' bodykits on that car... if it's the hatchback SI, then leave it as is, the early 90s were Honda's best years styling-wise.

    This is the color civic i have too, i think it looks alright. Some things i did were make the windows really dark.. ~10% tint, and put on clear corners, and lower it . mine kinda looks like the car above , but without rims.

    you could just get a repaint from maaco where it wont cost that much and if there's any body work try to do it yourself....i got my civic done at maaco and i'm pretty happy with the results...of course i'm gonna have to repaint it soon cause of all the haters :squint:

    the best way to make a civic look better involves a sledgehammer.
