Hey, welcome! We need more pictures to drool at
Gave the old girl a facelift this afternoon
She's a pretty girl @rimmo! Any plans for her mod wise?
Type-S rear spoiler being ordered today hopefully arrive in time for Mimms.
Small update Type-S spoiler now fitted.
Looking Good Charlie, what other plans do you have for her?
Thanks CJ, things to do.
Fit wind deflectors,(xmas pressie), led footwell lighting with remote dimmer. Also planning on replacing the headunit with dab double din unit.
Double din installed.
Skunk 2 weighted gear knob
Then thought i would try something a little different.
Looks classy mate nice one. what ICE do you have in your car that is not standard.
Wanted to go down the DAB route. I opted for a Kenwood dpx 406 dab with built in bluetooth/handsfree.
I had intended on doing a speaker upgrade but the sound quality through the standard spreakers is greatly improved so decided to leave as is.
Think I have a blue theme going on.
blue led footwell lighting. blue 48 led SMD panel boot light
DAMN! that blue aright, get some non fuzzy pictures Charlie.
Coming up to 1 year anniversary of owning the Civic, and MOT time has arrived.
Took her in this morning and happy to say she sailed straight through with no advisories.
Good looking gear knob! Nice too see the original Skunk2 piece, at last!
Here in Portugal everyone has the knock off/replica version from Aliexpress, looks really cheap
Alibaba a story of thieves now the central place to buy genuine knock off .. oh the irony!
Sorry for the off topic, but at the garage I work at, a foreigner guy with a rental van showed up selling "german tool carts", and kitchen aluminium supplies ( LOL ) and I automatically tought this was suspiccious.
My boss was really attracted to the business offer, because the seller had a flyer that showed the german tool carts were originally around 1000 euro, and he was selling for only 500.
Huuum, I was a bit salty, so simply googled the "german" brand, Kraftwelle... Immediatelly laded at the Alibaba order page, with the price "149 euro/ item" .
Didn't say a word, boss is an idiot anyways
What I could have done was try to negociate with the seller... okay, blackmail the seller. Like "hey, my boss is a bit skeptical about Chinese quality, if I show him my little cellphone with these little website you won't get your 500€, sooo, money my way, maybe?" , but all of this happened after lunch, so my imagination wasn't that sharp OR dark
