2009 Honda Civic Si Sedan, Redline Orange. Kinda funny how it came about. Some of you know that I sell Honda for a living. Our dealership was participating in a sales contest for new Civic, CRV, and Accord models. Jan 2, 2009 was the last day for sales to qualify...we were 1 car short!

The owner of the dealership was running around trying to scare up that 1 last deal at about 3:30pm. @4:45 nothing was happening, no traffic, no appointments, no light at the end of the tunnel. Then it hit me! I'm 3 months away from needing a car to drive (lease end on Ridgeline). I went to the owner and made him an offer on this car. Obviously, he accepted. I signed the required paperwork and I brought it home with me last night (1/3?09).

The color was not my first choice, but I like it. I lowered my payment by about 200/month, AND I still have the Ridgeline for the next 3 months for bad weather/truck duty!

I didn't have the car for 2 hrs before the first mod made! PIAA plasma Ion yellow fog light bulbs. I almost didn't get a pic of the car stock before I'd worked a deal for a set of wheels. Worked out a trade for a couple sets of wheels. 17" Work Emotion XD9 and 18" Mugen whatevers off the Mugen Si. Slapped the Mugens on there last night.

Got the windows done today, and have been looking into either the Ingalls Stiffy ETD or the Boomba racing mounts. I hadn't gone 3 miles before a HEMI Ram wanted to play, and the 1-2 shift sounded like someone smacked the firewall with a hammer! The stock dampner SUCKS, so I'll be changing that VERY soon!

here's a pic with the Mugens.


tinted pics to come later on. And, yes, I will be lowering it too. thanks.

um, yeah...got a REALLY good deal. I've seen the recap sheet, so I know exactly how good of a deal I got. :wow: All of the managers were amazed that the owner of the store would approve a deal like that, but OH WELL! :cool:

As fars as the springs go, I just scored a set of Skunk2 2.0 drop for cheap. I sold the Mugen Si (the day after I bought my car!) on the showroom to a buddy that had an EX sedan. He sold me the springs since the Mugen has suspension already. Funny (unusual) thing is that the car is for his wife to drive!

i like the JDM front ALOT, but the rear doesn't do too much for me. I doubt that I'll be doing any body mods since I leased the car.
