I was hoping for a new RL, but this one will do!

Civic looks great, nice wheels... not feelin' the roof rack contraption. Unless of course its actually used it for its intended purpose.

How's it riding on those TL's slammed? Love to get those rims on my car. How'd you drop it?

Don't worry, Jeff and I put the bike rack to use from time to time.

As for the RL... tint coming soon. And after I sell this one, I plan to get a new one. I enjoy driving this car so much after dropping it on the K-Sport Kontrol Pros. And it still has another 1 1/2" to drop if needed.

As for the TL wheels... they went one just fine. There is about 2mm of space from them touching the rear fenders without the fenders being rolled. The camber, as usual, takes care of itself and the car drive VERY nice for them being on the stiffest setting. Not bad for 36 way adjustables

Just a few little toys and add ons to go and this thing should look much better... especially if I decide to upgrade to the 99-03 front end on it...

96-98 on the Right and the 99-03 front end on the Left...

Otherwise a few engine mods possibly and a nice non ricer dual tip muffler to give it a low exhuast tone and she'll be good for a while.

RL's are cool cars. Never driven one, but I used to have a Legend that moved pretty good. Would think the RL is quicker. Is it any bigger than the TL.

Looks good, great cars, my dad put 140k on a 97 and 160k on a 2002. Both with no major problems.

99-03 is much better!

Agreed... It's only a $2,000 upgrade just to buy the parts without paint which I think is worth it considering what I paid for the car was a steal. Plenty of money left to upgrade


RL's are cool cars. Never driven one, but I used to have a Legend that moved pretty good. Would think the RL is quicker. Is it any bigger than the TL.

They are a decent size bigger. With the K-Sports on there it drives much nicer and it's on the stiffest settings. The RL will be getting a set of Type II cams and some toys to help it move a little quicker too. And if I really want her to move for fun, have a fully forged bottom end from the factory gives me plenty of choices.

Agreed. I've finally got the car drivable within the last month due to the prior accident from the previous owner. I have to clean the EGR pipe and that should be the last CEL on the car.

But no complaints so far for only paying $300 for it, and having less that $1,000 on repairs, upgrades, and the price of the car.

Wow, that is hands down the best looking $1k car I've ever seen. I like the newer wheels.

Well it looks like I'm test fitting some nicer wheels in the next few weeks as well. Who doesn't like big wheels with a big lip!?

Does anyone else think that a slightly taller wheel would look better? With the mass of the car, the wheels seem a bit tiny.

I like it as is. Looks sweet.I think the same, but it won't hurt to shop around for a different look.
