I recently purchased the biggest investment in my young 20 years I have been here.
Last Friday, I purchased a 2001 Honda Civic Coupe EX for around 16,000. For those wondering/curious about how I can afford this along with a home-theater, basically I'm a spoiled brat who lives with a parent (no rent, bills etc...) have a pretty good partime job, and go to school full-time(which means more spoiling from parents)
Anyway, I am going to need ALOT of advice after this huge investment. I love this forum and the people in here, so that is why this is directed here, in a home-theater forum. People here are reasonable.
Just as the topic subject says " Now What?"
FIY, any mods on the car is out of my own pocket
I am on a tight budge with about $200.00-$250.00 a month going into any mods.
Right now I have about $500.00 (reasonably) to make instant modifications.
I am looking to getting the following, in order of importance.
- [*] Cleared Headlights[*] Altezza Tail-Lights[*] Lowering Springs[*] 17" Tires[*] 17" Rims[*] Performance Upgrades (Exhaust, Cold Air Intake, etc...)[*] Audio System
I live in the Orange County area in Cali, if anybody knows good import car shops which would meet my needs, please let me know.
All of those listed above are my priority, and hope to have the car done with all those mods by the end of this year.
FYI, I am not a racer nor do I have plan on participating in that kind of spectacle. I am not ignorant and think this 127HP can outrun 75% of cars, which it can't. I needed this car to get from A to B.
I want the mods to make the car look nice, preform really good, and sound excellent. That's all.
For the audio system, I have 6 1/2 and I believe the Infinity Kappa are a good fit. With an JL - Enclosed Subwoofer 2 12"(250 cont. power handling)($349.99). I am debating wether to get the Infinity 6X9s.
In terms of the tires and rims, (not moldable on this) My standard tires are 15", if I went with 17" I have heard from a friend that this will mess up my alignment. I will read my manual, but any insight into this, please advise me.
Please, if you have any comments, suggestions, criticism let me know. I would like the best solution to reach my objective with the car
[list=1][*] Excellence Performance[*] Looks Good.[*] Sounds Great.
