If your an enthusaist, and got time on your soup your car up with a nice body kit. Get some new tail lights, head lights for more customized feel. Lol, even if your happy with your sound, theres always room for improvement. Try to get a some bazooka subs in there, with an alpine speakers. Get a good amp, and your set!

I like how you say you dont want it to look like a ricer but the first things you want to put on it is an exhaust, spoiler, and rims. Why not make it a sleeper and turbo it or something? Cause IMO, civics are extremely gutless when they are stock so that would be the first thing that i would put money into.

-Wheels/Tires are a must. IMO go with some 17" or 18" I personally like the 18", better handeling, I got 18" on my Civic and the thing steers like its on rails. Something dark too, maybe a black, hyperblack, gunmetal ect. and for christ's sakes, NO CHROME!!!!

-Lower the car, maybe 1.5" 2" Maybe a camber kit, whatever your style though. I dropped mine 1.75 all the way around.

-Exhaust, go with a nice Neuspeed, Borla, Buddy Club or Greddy.

-The right body kit would look really tight, stay away from the ultra wide flare body, and huge ass wings, looks very ricey. Go with some classic like a Kaminari (mine) Buddy Club, Wings West or Air Force 1, always go with Urethane kits, everthing else is trash.

-If you don't like full body kits, go with a quality carbon fiber lip kit, and a CF wing.

-Tint those damn windows nice and black.

-Intake

-Weight loss, replace some of your items on your car with a carbon fiber hood, trunk or body panels. I shit canned my OEM hood for a carbon fiber hood and dropped 40lbs off the weight of the car, I also shaved the rear wiper, and canned the spare over a 100+ lbs off, better gas mileage, handeling and speed.

-Seats, rip out those OEM seats and get some tight Bride, Recaro, Sparco or MOMO seats.

-Lambo doors!!!!!

Unless you are racing the car, whats the point of dropping $3K on a turbo kit? Put that money into some other things that actually will have a use, sound, body kit, exhaust ect. If you got the cash to drop on it go for it.

And please, NO stickers/decals/banners on your car, also no neon, chrome and extreme wings that shit is soooo ricey.

I like this car, custom, but not too extreme, looks clean and tight.
