2003 Honda Civic Type-S
Daily Driver Owned by gbb14

  • My daily driver Honda, bought it 2 weeks ago in late January 2018 for 1 grand. 3rd owner.
    Great car. I am truly amazed because my previous car was a 2003 Hyundai Accent 1.3 :Smile: it was reliable enough, but nothing close to this Honda.
    I am falling deeper and deeper in love with her each day :Smile:

    Modifications & Optional Extras

    For the moment no modifications or extras. Now I'm replacing every bit that needs to be replaced.
    Looking forward to installing a Cold Air Intake. <= I won't do this, understanding
