Hi, im new to the forum and the Honda scene lol. Iv just got myself a 1998 1.5 Civic Lsi Vtec which im VERY happy with. Im looking to euro it and have seen some about but i dont know what the stats are..( if you get what i mean lol )
I dont no how low to go and what size wheels to get e.c.t.

If anyone could show me some pics of euro civics and tell me how much they are lowered and wheel sizes then it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,
James! :)

Edit:

O and 1 more thing.
I am looking to buy a GOOD air filter. Not a cheap one. Iv herd that the best one for jap cars is HKS. Is this true and where can i get one :) lol. And also a nice sounding exhaust system thats also good not cheap crappy one.

Thanks for reading :)
Looking forward to the replies.

James.

Yeah some euro'd civics are alright. Not my personal thing but whatever. As far as air filters go, like Skinny said you can't go far wrong with an AEM!! It's true HKS make fantastic air filters, but theres no one difinitive company to go with. So have a shop around. AEM/HKS/GruppeM/K&N...etc etc

That would probably look quite smart mate yeah!! I've got a Banzai mag here with a euro-style 4th gen Civic in it. Thats sitting on 16's. However I dont think he's dropped the ride at all. ust modified some aftermarket lips to make it look like its been dropped.

Euro, eh? Welllll... I'm a VW boy, and I'm only on here because I appreciate Honda's as good cars, and to get advice for my EF project.

I came from the Rice side initially with a couple of S13 200 SXs amogst others, and in fairness there's not too much difference in style between JDM and VW OEM+. I think Civics (at least EF-EK) should generally be on 15" wheels anyway, so there's a good start for sizing. As far as anything else goes, just use your imagination, look to other scenes for inspiration, and don't be afraid or put off by other people when you want to try something new... what's the worst that can happen bud? You'll be the one laughing when it all comes together :cool:

Oh, and don't forget the STANCE
