Finally got myself a "Shmivic" :)

I'm 31 yrs. old, and after about a dozen cars and 8 bikes I finally smartened up and got a 2001 Civic LX/SR with only 130k...and I love it!

I drive about 150km a day (live in Barrie, work in Toronto) and I get awesome gas mileage even when averaging 130-140km/h

I've already gotten a set of decent looking 16s with awesome summer tires but they're 205/40/16s and leave a huge gap. So right now I'm looking for:

1. Eibach Sportlines or Pro1
2. Teins
3. Coilovers (but nothing too expensive)

Does anyone have anything used on here?

I'm also looking for a 8k HID kit and a hood bug deflector (for all those highway stone chips)!

Cheers,

~Paul.

Thanks guys...I'm seriously thinking of not lowering it and replacing my rims with stock Si 15s...it'll save me a lot of headaches! I still want those HIDs...any reccommendations?

i used to have pro lumen in my 03 civic never had a problem with it bought it at option jdm, but not only im illuminating the road im also blinding the incoming traffic so i removed it. that's why on my 08 civic i invested on retrofit. pricy but best mod i've done to my car.

As promised (even though it's a little late), here's an updated pic...Eibach Pros, Ractive strut bar, 16" "fat 5s" on Potenza GO-19s, 6k HID slim balast kit, full AEM CAI, 08 spoiler, JDM lip...and here's how she sits now:
