Hi everyone :).
My missus registered here a while back as she was looking for a Civic. Well we bought one last weekend. It's a black EK4 VTI, and as I'm the one that's going to be doing a few bit's and pieces on the car for her, I thought I'd have the courtesy to say hello before I start annoying you with dumb tech questions :D.
It's been a fair while since I worked on a front wheel drive so please bear with me.

Hi all, thanks for the welcome :cool:

No pics of the car yet as the last owner had little to no taste.
I've ordered a standard exhaust today to replace the catering size baked bean can that's currently adorning it's posterior. and the standard vti wheels that have been painted black will be replaced with a set of dishy Work Meisters once I source the parts for a five stud conversion. This will involve replacing the standard 'painted hammerite yellow' calipers and centres of the discs, that quite honestly looks like it's been done by someone with no arms, so it's win win :D

It's not all bad though, as it's a clean standard car other than that, so makes a good base for the fun things we want to do to it.
I own a couple of companies, one of which is HSD Europe, who manufacture one of the best coilover kits for EG's and EK's on the market, so I'll be sticking a set of those on, along with some EK9 splitters and a grill. I'm sure it's a look that's probably done to death here, but I love the look, and like to go by the rule of stick with what works and all that :D

very nice, what price they retail at? for special hondacivicforum members :D i just bought a set of technix ones off ebay, not happy with them at all tbh, havent fitted them yet as will most likely sell them on and buy more expensive ones, the springs are labeled "evo" and the shock doesnt even come with damper mountings so you have to use your 13 year old honda ones:S cant see how this is a full "new" coilover setup to be honest!! might well be good but not wasting my time fitting them if im gonna have to take them off again and buy better ones!! :evil:


anyywaayyys again welcome!

Well here it is as it stands. It's not really as bad as I made out perhaps. I think it's just the dying of embarresment every time I warp it anywhere with that exhaust on that makes me cringe so much :D.



If people are interested in the coilovers here, I'll go through the correct channels and contact someone about trading here :). HSD are a factory own brand. They make coilovers for many big name like BuddyClub. These are just different colours and less than half the price.

Hi everyone this is my car :D I signed up last year but haven't posted much. I read the forum quite a lot but now I actually have a Civic its cool to read up about the particular model and see what other owners have done to theirs.

Between me and Phil there is quite a few things happening to the car. Will try and add pics as and when stuff goes on!
