Re: HELPP please !

Well...what kind of spoiler are you looking for? If you want the OEM SH spoiler, check Majestic Honda, HandA.com, maybe even eBay. There are like 100000000 different styles of 16X7 wheels man...and a lot of them look good...so it's all up to you want you want...if you ask me though, check out BBS, Volk, Tenzo, Work, OZ, Enkei, etc.

...no you don't have to let off the gas to shift. You really shouldn't be shifting anyway. Just put it in D4 and drive.

No prob man. The auto trans on the 5th gen is known to go bad quickly, so just take it easy on the car.

Re: HELPP please !

The 98-99 auto's were notorious for failing. Maybe someone can give you a more in-depth reason as to why. I have an 01 auto and have yet to see any signs or problems. Maybe its because its still young (56k) or maybe its just how I drive her. Unless you want to fork out big cash to fix it "when" because everythign mechanical will fail at some point. Just take it easy and you'll be fine. I am 16 to and one of the best pieces of advice given to me was " whats more important - winning that races that may kill by-standers, or knowing that you have nothing to prove to that riced out civic next to you?" Not saying you will race, I guess all im saying is be smart.

ps: welcome to pz. Its a great bunch of guys and gals here and im sure youll enjoy your stay.

Re: HELPP please !

Hey no problem man. Its nice to see some young gear heads here. I have a 1968 Camaro and its honestly hilarious to see civics and eclipses pull of next to me and rev. Usually I rev back and just watch their sorry ass tear off the line. My lude has changed a bit since those pictures (rims, side skirts, lips to come, tires) ill be posting a stereo thread pretty soon so keep posted to the ICE section.

Re: HELPP please !

Yeah man I hear you. Im a lucky kid. I have three cars ( jeep for winter, lude for summer, camaro for project) As for your original post let me finish my movie ( I played 6 hours of football today in +30 celcius heat so I need to relax for a bit :p) and Ill show you some options that I looked at when I wanted new rims. As for the spoiler go OEM or Type S. The flushmount type s is puree sex. Its the only spoiler ill spend more than $100 on. In all honesty though is there a reason you want a spoiler? I think ludes look so good without them

Re: HELPP please !

S***... I probly wont even have 3 cars when I'm 40... Dont be a dumb 16 year old like I was... You seem to have good head on yer shoulders... I totalled 3 cars before I figured out "maybe I shouldn't drive like a jackass anymore". Shop around... you'll find something you cant live with out, at some point...

Re: HELPP please !

no one said it???

your car isnt metalic white..

its Pike Peak White..or PPW..

and the best way to get a spoiler is to see if someone with a ppw trunk with a spoiler wants to swap with your spoilerless trunk..


toooon of kids hate their spoilers and would be down son.
