styling

hey guys i swapped a h22a motor from japan in my eg6 92-95 civic hatch

anyways im just curious do you guys think i should go for the sleeper look or all out bodykit with some nice wheels?

I currently have 18" wheels on my civic momo quasar 2's they look awesome, however i think there too big and the ride noise is high... it currently has a spider bodykit.

I was thinking to go back to stock with a front lip and throw on some drag dr16's bronze with a black car... either that or flat black.

I would go a simple lip like above some 16s and keep everything else stock looking, like the above car minus the headlights, but even those look good.

I know you have an EG but I think this is very sleeper

i like the first cvcc,
keep it sleeper, no body kits, everyone calls cvcc's slow so atleast youve got more then the average cvcc so keep it like that.

i just like the projector headlights easier to see and i have zeon setup so it will be better with the projectors...

i want a sleeper, thats where im leaning towards but i do like bodykits and out of control stuff...

hard to say, its just i want it to be stable at high speeds and not fall apart

Keep it stock and take the money for the body kit and put it towards a jackson racing supercharger. IMO GO over show anyday. Plus when u do pop the hood it look so much better.

Styling is such a personal thing, theres nothing worse than going with what somebody else says you should do then hating it.

Think about it, search all the pics of civics you can, then decide what you wanna do.

im a big eg-6 fan... IMO i think you should leave it simmulater to stock, put a desecnt lip kit on it and and throw some rota's on it.similar to your old one..... every where i go i c to many civics with body kits, or teggys, or even the 4thgen preludes... and every one calls them rice... but when a car looks sim. to stock they still consider it rice... but they dont give it a bad name.. specially when an h22 eg waxes there ass from a dig... true story... my buddy in indy with an ek boosted h22 lined up with a mustang and raced from a dig... smoked the stang up n down, cop pulled him over and actually for once, said that was mighty impressive for a honda, and let him off with a warning...but i dont condone street racing :) keep it to the track!
