    now, i know trying to make your car look fast when its not is rice, but i want to do some style changes without looking rice. NO body kit, but i think i want to go for a front lip - no side skirts, big ass evo XVI front end with rally lights and shit. but i was thinking of gettin fiberglass fenders to lighten the load. once again, no z3 fenders or anything. but i want to paint the car semi gloss black and maybe throw a honda wing decal across the side. no NOS or type r or TRD (lol) dumb stickers. and i want to redo the interior red and black. i like jdm stying, so any help as to where i can find that shit cheap would help too. i dont want to make the car look fast, cuz its an lx 4 door, but let me know what you think. thanks.

    I didnt even read that.. but here is some advice..

    Who gives a fuck what ppl think is rice? Why do you care what OTHERS think? Its your car, right?

    <rant>Everyone is being catious, they dont want their car to be rice, fuck it, fix it how you want and tell others to fuck off, they didn't pay for it. </rant>

    My truck is getting blue led's in the dash/doors, slammed on bags and 18's and 20's, lemme hear someone call a SHOW truck rice, and they can listen to the dual BOV's as the boosted ls1 flys by laughing..

    good point man! i just want a nice car. i gotta do a lot of bodywork to it, and i cant afford a real nice paint job. thats why im going with semi gloss black. well, that, and the maroon looks, well, shitty. but i wanted some opinions, and info on where to get jdm accesories.

    www.optauto.com/webstore started carrying some JDM stuff. Check out www.hondaswap.com/bwong also. Brian Wong is a great importer/seller/guy :thumbsup:

    I personally think flat black ownz and if you can prep the body yourself, there are nice cheaper places to get it painted. They might not pain door jams or do a "complete" color change, but you can do your jams if you aren't looking for a show car.

    The only thing that matters is that your car looks cool to you, its your car. :p


    When other people start paying for your car then they can tell you how to mod it B)

    as usual im the lone dissenter (sp)....

    imo rally lights on a car that is not made to rally in.....
    are overkill (insert better euphanism here _______)

    and a front lip with no side skirts and no matching bumper
    just doesnt "flow"

    i agree, it's all about being clean! no crazy ass body kits. I used to have a 99 si and i just had it dropped and focused my money on the engine, before it got jacked... :( i think a simple lip in the front would be tight and a decent drop.
