Ok so I havent been on here enough but I never posted much about my car either so here goes!



So it's a little over a year but I figured I'd show you all the progress of my car.

April 07 as she stood stock


May 07 I installed Tein Basics, AEM CAI, DCRH, APEXi WS2, 1 15" Kicker CVX Sub, battery, and amp.




June 07 the car became Audio Oriented and was on its way to becoming an SPL competition car. Added the Alpine IVA-D300 Screen, Audio Control EQ, Alpine 4 channel amp, cap, another 15" CVX, Focal highs front and rear, and HIDs.



July 07 Disaster Strikes!! I hydroplaned into a ditch and through a fence doing $15,000 in damage to the car. I thought for sure it was totalled.


Sept 07 I finally got the car back from the body shop. In the end my amps were stolen and the screen was broken. I also decided to go in a new direction and start focusing on performance and appearance. So I started by having the body shop install the Mugen Style front lip. This is also when I began my interest into Sun*Works.

Love it. Got better pictures of the D3? Always wondered how you replace the stock HU on the newer Civics.


this really the best one I have. I can take a better one for you but basicly we can either use the stock honda Navi dash or Scoche makes the replacement dash piece. its really not hard at all but I see how decieving it can be.
