What to do next

Hey everybody, i'm a newbie from The Netherlands

The Mods:
Veilside 1 Body Kit (skirts molded)

Varis Carbon Fiber GT-wing
OZ Superleggera 7x16
Intrax Full Coilover Suspension

Already on its way:

I think you should sell the wing and the wheels and get new ones. Get some springs/shocks, sway bars, engine performance stuff.

Looks good but, I'm not feeling the wing.

And how do you get in your trunk.

I'm gonna take your little Civic. Dust it off. Turn it sideways and stick it straight up you candy A*s.

Well it's a bit difficult to explain with my english, but i'll try it anyways:

As 'stock' my car is equipt with an alarm, wich locks the trunk and the doors when it's activated.

I used the device that locks it (the trunk) and connected the cable (off wich you open your trunk normally) to the lever of the device (wich now puls the cable)
Then i reconnected the wires from the electronic box (underneath your airco) to a switch (the same one wich locks the windows)
So now, when i push the button, the trunk goes open!

(only problem so far: for closing the trunk i have to push the button once again, else the cable is still pulled by the lever, but that's because the button stay's in it's position, so i have to make it 'retract' by itself (don't know the word for a button like that in english))

Might I suggest a Cold Air Intake? That will definitly add some power. Nice ride, try a new wing, and some bigger rims, go gun metal, you know you want to.

I actually don't think I'd drop that car. It looks low enough right now with those wheels. Which brings me to the point that I wouldn't change the rims, because they make the car look like it's actually built for speed and not show.

Mad props on pulling off that spoiler. Not many cars would look un-rice with that thing, but your car looks nice and clean.

Get a header, and then have a high-flow cat installed to free up some of that hp. I did the unorthodox light-weight pulleys and the top of the gears gets a noticably better pull (a must). Grounding wires are cheap and work great. Then think about The Greddy E-Manage. Monkeywrenchracing.com sells then pre-programmed you just tell them your mods and they set it up for you.

Well it does have coilovers, and I can slam in completly to the tarmac if I want to...

Except there is something called 'speed-bumps' in our country (and there are a lot I can't cross right now!!!)

Well, i was thinking about a supercharger from blitz, don't wanna get a turbo (as you know XS sucks at the moment!), and a turbo kicks in, while a supercharger come's in more smoother, so that better for a FWD, else you get to much wheelspin IMO
About the money...well not anymore grin

Those pic's are from the day i picked it up, from the shop, so the paint is still fresh there!
(but i use 'speed wax' to keep it shiny)

My thoughts exactly smile
These OZ's are also lightweight (about 6kg each (don't now how much that is in lbs.))
