I'm on the fence, but it kinda looks like you lost your hubcaps

I am decided that you've got some killer mods there - sounds like a little beast......

You're car looks great. I was wondering how you like the Tanabe S03's, do you suppose you could give us a quick review? Thanks.

Thanks for all the good replies. Here is a quick review on the coilovers. Great performance. They feel just like the tein ra's. You cant adjust the strut on the Tanabe like on the ra. You can adjust the ride hight though. No clunking and a nice solid ride.

Your car looks very nice! Just get JDM headlamps and blue mesh covers and I think it'll look amazing (but that's me).

You cant beat rims that are 13.5 lbs. I love the flat black. I have had silver and gunmetal on there before. It just wasn't me. I like my cars very clean and plain. Thanks for all the complements.

how do you find the ride quality with the tanabe s03's? a little stiff, but bearable, or somewhat harsh?

au112- It is a replica of spoon wheels.


CRXguy- They are fine. The are pretty much the same spring rates a the tein RA's. Not harsh at all, at leat for me. I have no clunking at all. The car feels solid and stable unlike with lowering springs or stock suspention.

The Spoon wheel is really a rebranded Regamaster Evo.

This is a very common wheel in Honda Civic circles, almost too common.
