I'll be dead honest with you...the car looks clean, but it is 99% stock. Nobody without knowledge about the RSX is going to notice the black headlights didn't come that way from factory, same with the redouts. And the spoiler is just a factory option. Nobody will ever see the HID's at a carshow unless you print out a list of mod's (since most car shows are held during the day). The engine bay isn't worth showing since you can hardly see the CAI and it just looks like a big empty hole in the engine bay where the factory air box once sat. The factory wheels are not show worthy in any aspect or painted any color.....they will always just be the stock wheels. After all of that, all you have left are the strut tower bars and c-pillar bar which will not help you place in any decent car shows. Car show judges are looking for things other than stock. They want things that stand out. If you are looking to start showing your car, you have got to spend some money or be really good at customizing things on your own.

Edit: You need "bling" or some performance parts you can see if you want to show.

this must be a joke... go to some shows first and then come back and tell us if you really think your car is ready... and i dont mean the in-and-out parking lot when there are two civics with wings and fart cannons on the back

:thumbsdown;
