I'm hoping to quickly find out if the JDM projector headlights will fit on the US model. That will probably be my first mod if so.

On a white LX, Things I'm considering:

Go one size up on the tires and go to low rolling resistance.
Full Lakester hubcaps on the steel wheels, painted to match the body.
Make reflective white inserts for the fake "lambo ducts" front and rear.
Light-colored fabric "sheepskin" covers for the front seats.
Light (California legal) tint on the front windows.

That's the same mod I wanna do. I saw a lot of them for sale on yahoo.co.jp auctions and they seem to all come with the LED bulbs. Looks like they'll fit but I'm assuming our US GK uses H4 bulbs. From the pics I've seen on yahoo auctions it seems the LEDs look like they are H11, we'd provably need a harness or convert it some how since they got separate low and hi beams

Jdm RS side skirts. It's looks sooooo much better with the side skirts. And I'm a fan of mud flaps.

At the other end of the spectrum....

--OEM Wheel locks
--OEM Applique
--OEM cargo tray (incidentally, my 2009 tray fits, just a tight fit)
--OEM cargo area cover (no seat back snaps on the 2015 model)

from College Hills Honda

Boring, I know...

Oh yeah, California legal tint from local company that did my prior Fit. Soon. It's getting hot out.

Looks like Brianflys has got the ball rolling. Again, the "FIRST" FF to buy add-ons that will actually be put into his real-life GK. Post Pics man - don't forget. There are things you guys are thinking off that I never considered. Bad thing for me! Have to re-think the budget. Its definitely headed for an increase!!!!

That will be awhile, as I am waiting for the blue color, so don't hold your breath. Hmm I wonder if the wheel locks for the 05' Accord will fit the 2015 Fit. Save me some $ if I don't have to get a new set!

You'll be driving yours way before I'll ever see my LX M/T. Looking like Aug. delivery. Am sure one of the our FF will know whether those wheel locks are a fit and if not, call up the Service or Parts Dept. of your selling dealer and they will let you know in a minute.

You're waiting for the blue one?? Awesome! Me too! What trim level you're thinking? And is it true that blue is a rare colour to get? :-/

****I demand 15' Fit Blue EX-L with Navigation****

2015 CVT LX

  5. CAI that I'll butcher the cold air part to my piping diameter specs (You'll see and why)
  6. Custom straight through muffler (Pipe diameter TBD)

Need to get up underneath to look at the rest of the exhaust to see if I want to do anything. That's it for now.

That's it for now??? Its a hefty list of well-thought out items to squeeze more out of the incoming GK. Looking forward to your future thread on the real-world results once delivery and install are done.

May have made a pre-mature purchase so here's something to learn from my continuing shopping spree madness.

The rear park sensor kit (Ebay) may have an issue w/ the GK as majority of the rear bumper is angled downwards. Not good for those sensors and probably will give a false reading. The only other place I can think of are the ends (l & r) of the rear bumper. They go upwards, over the bottom edge of the rear hatch. Its flat and hopefully sufficient clearance behind that portion of the bumper is available. Plan to initially install 2 of the 4 sensors. Still, will have to test prior to any drilling as that bottom slope does not provide a 360deg. obstruction-free area. It could well be, I spent $15 uselessly.

(Wife's only demand as she's so used to the sensors on her Lexus RX - I've lived with no sensors on my GD for 7 yrs, but alas, am now a "trained" partner!!).

Not gonna lie Rottboy, it's killing me not knowing what parts will fit this vehicle. I keep searching Tirerack to find out what wheels will fit. I just want to get my parts NOW. I can deal with waiting for the car to get here. If someone knew what parts will fit it from 2013 for sure, I'd already be ordering.

On the topic of parking sensors the rear camera pivots down so you can see directly behind the car. It has three different reverse camera modes.
