Inca Pearl Civic with "Inca Pearl" Rims

Hello,

I've been on the forums for a while now, but never got the chance to introduce myself. I stalled introducing myself since I was first sort of ashamed of my Civic since it was sort of banged up and did not want to show pictures of it till I got it fixed up. So now everything is up to par and I'm ready to show it off now.

I'm Marvin and live in Mississauga. I have an 01 Civic Coupe that is Inca Pearl. The mods I have on it are only a few: Magnaflow exhaust, FAST "Inca Pearl" rims (removed centre caps), CAI, Retrofit Headlights with Blazer projectors running 4300K HIDs, and Altezza Tail Lights (tinted and painted black). I'm pretty sure you'll be able to spot out my car if you see it.

The first thing I'm pretty sure people will start saying after they see the pics of my car is to drop it. Actually, my car WAS dropped before to about 1.7 inches when I first bought it. The rear tires had negative camber and I didn't want that so I went and bought a camber arm, but when I put it to zero, my tire was hitting my quarter panel so I ended up resorting to getting new struts (since mine were blown) and getting stock springs. Some members might remember some of the threads I posted before about being too low (when I used to run the black and chrome RTX scorpion rims). So for now, I'm satisfied running at stock no matter how 'big' the wheel gap might seem. Maybe down the road I'll properly drop the car.

I just got to say, I used to have a 95 Civic and even though it is way older than my 01, the 95 was a way better car cosmetically and mechanically. After having driven my 01 for a year, I've replaced many parts. Now, part of the reason may be that the previous driver did not take good care of the car but I'm pretty sure since my generation is considered the worst generation of the Civic, that would be another factor. Regardless, I still really like my car despite everything I've been through with it. It's just I wouldn't go buying another 7th gen Civic after this one.

Here are some pics (pardon the not-so-good quality of my cell phone camera):

Looks good. Can't say I've seen another like it on the road. Props for uniqueness.

Don't worry about the ride height. If it's a daily driver, you're better off not lowered.

How would you know they weren't retro-fitted? I did not retrofit them myself, but I can tell by the wide output (versus the narrow output from ebay projectors) and the fact that its been resealed with some sort of silicone.

Just ignore Alex. He's a nit-picker...
