Default "Fuel prude" build thread

So, as most of you know I bought a honda. (Gasp) pics/mods in no particular order.

Started off with a clean un-molested 99' civic ex fully loaded. $1750
After a was and fresh coat of wax:


Installed Ddm 5k hi-lo hid kit and oem factory fog lights:


The hub caps had to go, so on with oem honda hx wheels and new bridgestone tires:



More pics later, when I take them. Just thought I'd share my econo-box mon-fri car.

Can't beat a Civic for a DD. My brother got one and loves it. I don't like sitting so low to the ground though, so that's why I went with a CR-V instead. Not as good on fuel but still a great vehicle.
