I really like what you've done here. I'm also a fan of the OEM+ style. Kinda what i'll try to go for. Maybe later on get those HID Retrofits in there.

Awesome Fit! Quick questions about your suspension setup, How long did you run the "GE" coilovers, why did you switch to your current setup? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the compliments. The front fits perfectly. Sides are a bit tight in fitment and needed two people to hold and install. Would suggest heating them up with a heatgun before painting them. Rear is terrible fitment. Doesn't line up at all with extra material at both ends. Or if you make the ends tight, the middle bows out about 1/4". Yes, i used OEM Honda weather stripping to make it look factory

Thanks for the compliment. I placed my order through GoTuning and waited 5 months, but it never arrived. Ended up cancelling and getting a refund. They should have my pipe in stock now unless someone bought it already

Thanks for the compliment. Retrofits def enhance the look of the car alot. Wish they came stock. Increased light output is huge

Thanks for the compliment.. I ran the Tanabe coilovers for 5,000 miles then the Ground Control + Koni setup for 3,000 miles. Both were designed for the GE8. The rebound on the Tanabes are very stiff and i got annoyed after a while. Switched to Konis because I have used them in previous cars and are very comfortable. Mileage is low on the Koni/GC setup because I pulled all the parts off and traded the car in. I do not drive much either, so that is why miles are low.

Those seat covers

Everytime i see a build with the clazzio's, I'm inspired. But I'm left to wonder, do they stay firmly in place- how have they stood the test of time? It's been a couple years since you installed them, can you post a pic update of what they look like after being sat in fir thousands of miles?


(excellent build thank you for sharring)
