I've finally got my Honda Civic!! Booked it on December 12th 2007, and got delivery on the 13th of Jan 2008.. So its a 2008 car. Its a nice car. Got the Mugen BK from GC motorsport. They did a rather good job on the bodykit.. 99% satisfied. Paint job also satisfactory, but after washing car today.. realized that i'll have to clay bar part of the rear BK as the paint job wasn't very smooth. Honda waxed my car before delivery, but they machine waxed it and burnt parts of the waxing.. i hand waxed the whole car to fix it.. Its a holiday today so i spent most of the day washing and polishing it. Used totally turtle wax Platinum series. I suggest anyone going to looking for turtle wax to buy the "ice" version. I had a lot of trouble with the leftover white in the seams of the car from the platinum wax. Other mods in my car include the mugen replica sidestep and the illuminated keyring. (will have to go back to GC to fix the plastic covers over the steering as i think it wasn't fitted back properly by GC or something broke during assembly) A small DIY mod, which i made due to small pebbles thrown up by the tyre entering the sideskirt.. making a lot of noise.. show u picture afterwards. Its just a piece of plastic double taped to block of the channel which pebbles accumulate The Civic Side Profile really looks much better with the Mugen Bodykit. Gives it a much more agressive stance.. Also of course gives it a slightly more customized look without sacrificing the stock car values.. The rear 3/4 angle is probably the best angle to take a pic of the civic. The high trunk with its tapering nose makes it most beautiful. The eight year old putra is starting to show its age both in the paintwork quality as well as the design.. I kept the car numbers there in case any of you want to buy number la...
