Default FS: Turbo Boosted 2013 Honda Civic SI

PRL Motorsports 3" Downpipe (Header Wrapped)

RBC Intake Manifold with adapter
PRL Throttle Body Spacer
1000c Deatschworks Injectors

Invidia N1 Catback (Sounds awesome)
ACT Extreme Clutch (Brand New)
Hasport Motor Mounts
Vibrant Racing Valvecover Breathers
AEM Tru-Boost/AEM Wideband gauges (Dash Mounted) (Sold Separate)

Hey guys, I am selling my Civic. I bought the car with all the parts included and the only things I have personally done to the car has been regular maintenance, switching out the clutch, and replacing some coolant hoses. I did not get a dyno sheet with the car, but it is sitting around 350-400 HP running on premium gas with 73,000 miles on it. The car drives near to perfect and I am only selling it because I want a more tame daily driver.

I am asking $15,500 and I'm based out of Dallas, Texas. As noted in the part list above, I will be taking the gauges out unless you are willing to pay more for me to keep them in there.

Thanks

Put the stock wheels back on it, and get rid of those goofy-*** stickers on the front doors.

Mate, I don't care if the next person that owns it lifts it, puts 22 inch rims on it, and repaints it hot pink. Just trying to sell the car.

He IS trying to help you sell the car. A car that doesnít have stupid stickers on the side will be open to a wider market.

Okay so let me get this straight. I have a turbo boosted civic with a good amount of modifications to the motor with non-ebay parts running in great condition, and the thing that is going to deter a buyer is stickers that can easily be taken off? Yes, that logic definitely makes sense. I'm not trying to be rude, but like come on man. Cool if you don't like the stickers, but that's an easily fixable thing for anyone that is interested in this build. There is no reason to come here and hate on the car for such petty aesthetic modifications, when it clearly isn't even the selling point of this car.

i like the car and the setup is top notch. No doubt. But I wouldnít touch it personally but maybe thatís just me. Iíd wonder what other bad decisions youíve made. You may not agree with that but I suppose we are all entitled to our own philosophies.

Ricey stickers and rims can only lead us to assume that the rest of the car was put together with the same lack of taste.


Otherwise looks nice tho

I agree 100%. You donít want anything that will hinder the sale of your car. You mentioned how simple it it to take them off in one of your posts; I suggest doing it yourself then. It can only help you so I donít see why you wouldnít. Besides, I doubt anyone will look at this car and say ďNow if it only had some fender stickers Iíd buy itĒ.

As for the wheels, if you want to listen to our advice, Iím POSITIVE some kid would gladly trade you his OEM wheels for them, and you can ask for cash on top.

Look guys, I'm not doing anything to the car unless an actual potential buyer wants these things changed. Personally myself, I haven't been deterred from buying a modded car because of wheels or stickers. If I like the motor build and general condition of the car, then I like the motor build and general condition of the car and that's the main aspect of the car for me. Now granted, if there was some crazy suspension work (or something less easily modifiable in general) then maybe I would reconsider the purchase. Also I don't understand these comments about "trusting what else has been done to the car"? I have a parts list. There is nothing to question when I have stated what parts make up the motor.

If anyone has any other serious questions, I will gladly answer them. Otherwise, I am no longer going to entertain things that I find irrelevant. If wheels or stickers make the difference for you buying a nicely built car, then you can go ahead and spend the $10,000+ in parts & labor into your own stock civic and save your self the extreme hassle of purchasing stock wheels (maybe 1K?) and taking off stickers (free).

Listen man. I was trying to help you and offer advice. I wasnít rude, and didnít talk trash about your car. You obviously have ZERO idea where we are coming from...
Ill put it bluntly even though you wonít listen. The stickers and wheels make it look cheap and immature. It makes it look like the car was built by a high school kid, and people will assume the car was treated/driven as such.

I just find it so shocking that not only you refuse to remove stickers that literally ad zero value to your car (while asking $15k), but you get butthurt when people give you advice. If all of us are saying THE SAME THING, then do you think maybe we have a point? Put some damn effort into it. Also, stock wheels donít run $1k... Wtf is that...

I agree 100%. Heíd have many more people potentially interested in it. If youíre selling a car, you gotta think about other peopleís perspective and bias, not just his own.

Parts list ≠ workmanship and build quality.

That's a good point, I agree with that. Before I bought the car, me and a guy that is building an NSX from the ground up right now got under the hood to check to see if there were any potential issues. The only thing we came across were just some coolant hoses that could have been more tightly secured, so we replaced those. The only other thing was just how tight the motor bay is with all the parts added, so we were worried about the heat from the turbo. I haven't had any issues with that though.
