Yea they're pretty common. They have several different styles but the one I got was the "Mugen" replica. Its just the front and rear lip then painted stock side skirts

Spoon style

if you get on ebay and put in the year make n model and put lip kit after it you will see all kinds of them for cheap.

My husband keeps saying a small spoiler would complete it, but I like it better without. One of the main things I like about these years is the flat trunk top.

Found a pair of Integra front seats. They feel way better than the EG seats. Also pics from a ride this morning

Thanks!. Yea they have way more support than the stock EG seats. No more leaning on door panel or passenger seat while taking turns lol. Went for another scenic drive and took some pics. Came across a torched Evo X. probably stolen, pretty common for around here.

Took my car to "the pad" last night. Its a place close by where all of the car people go at night and run their cars, bet $$ and just hang out in general. I raced a guy in a 98 civic coupe with unknown mods and beat him by about 4 cars. Was fun. I was supposed to run a new f150 5.0 and a dodge ram rcsb but there were a couple big pot races that held up the line so we never got to. Good times though

Ewwww a Dodge lol. But that's cew. I've never been to a car meet haha. Don't really plan on going to one. #momlyfe I'm sure it's fun though. I get my car excitement by just messing, well playing into, people in traffic. Every single time I've beat them in my old Jetta Turbo and this Civic.

Meets are ok. around here it seems like just small cliques just standing around their cars. The races are fun though. In new orleans there is a road where cops dont mess with us too bad and we can spend hours with a couple hundred people just hangin out and racing. Its prepped with track bite and everything. Even has a dedicated flag man. The other night there were a couple turbo vettes, a viper, some trailered race cars.

Haha I feel you. My car needs a lot of cosmetic work. Paint, lip and bumper extensions, interior work, new tires and rims, etc. I'm pretty much starting from scratch lol. All I've got is a p nice rebuilt b18b in it. I've only had the car for a couple months. I specifically picked a car that had a good engine, but needed minor work. I need an exhaust too It didn't even have a air intake on it when I bought it. P much paid for the engine so I've got a ways to go before I get looking like you lol.

So yeah, even if I wanted too I'm definitely not going to any car meets haha.

Nah if they can't appreciate a work in progress then fk em... Not everyone has the cash to do up a car overnight or even over a years time. I've made a few fast ones but each took a few years to complete. this one is just a daily beater. Its got dents n scratches, the paint was done poorly, the trans is really close to catastrophic failure but luckily I picked up a new one and rebuilt it so maybe this weekend Ill change it. Before I get stuck on the side of the road. lol

Lmao yeah you better get that put in before you're left stranded trying to find someone with a truck to pull your *** home. Unless you got a couple hundred laying around for a tow truck lol.

The Jetta Turbo I had before this was a great car aside from typical German electrical issues. But it was over heating and my husband drove it anyways because he had to make it to work and destroyed the entire engine. Found out it was a coolant hose that was rotted. The **** was way in the back and under **** so I would have never thought to look there. Cheap and simple fix totally fucked the car. I hawked it and got this Civic. I'll never own another German made car again unless I'm at a point in life where I have at least a few thousand set aside in savings. **** is expensive as hell to have repaired/buy parts for. #peasant

Ha just noticed that pic above. You take pretty good shots man. I want to get mine looking like that, but black instead. Maybe white 5 spoke rims.
