Hi,

I'm new here and just wanted to say hi. My name is Patrick and I live in the U.K (South East). I don't have a civic yet but am looking to get one early next year?

I want somthing similar to this:



Can anyone give me any info on what kit this is and what it's had done.

Cheers,

Patrick ;)

or it could be a any model 96-98 with a 99-00 front end conversion painted EBP
C-West front bumper
Extreme sideskirts
projector headlights
Konig Verdicts
aluminum wing(scrap metal)
Sparco Torino seats
and it is turbocharged

Sorry I may sound stupid but I guess it's Wings west that makes the C-West kit. Do they make the Extreme skirts aswell.

And what is a conversion painted EBP.

Sorry, I am a Honda novice, but I'm trying to learn.:rolleyes:

C-West is a totally different company
www.optauto.com and www.modacar.com sell C-West kits

this is a 99-00 front end


this is a 96-98 front end


the HOT thing is to convert your 96-98 to a 99-00 by replacing your hood, headlights, fenders, bumper, and grill

and EBP = Electron Blue Pearl
meaning their car could have been any color and been painted EBP

lol, I thought that would be the case although the modifing scene in America does seem to bash out some hot cars. ;)

Do you have any pics of your cars?

What are the biggest companies in the U.s for modifying and what is the latest craze.

I just like to compare. Over here we have a dew big companies that allways seem to produce amazing cars; Carisma, Ecosse..

Everyone is getting into big chrome rims now, I guess that came from america, well that's what the mags say anyway.

Lol, cheers chaps.

Anyone know where I can get parts in the u.k.

I'm after the C West front bumper that the blue civic has above but can't seem to find anywhere on the web that sells it in the U.K

Cheers,

Patrick

240sx

4Runner


big companies here are DCSports
here's a couple cars they've turned out
a 7th gen Civic coupe

a RSX Type-S


then there is King Motorsports
03 Si hatch with a dc5r engine swap, fitted with all Mugen parts

their RSX again with a dc5r engine swap, and all mugen parts made for it

lastly their s2000, with carbon fiber hardtop


as you can see NO ONE over here is into chrome
chrome was big in the 1980s, that's about it
as the saying goes "don't believe everything that you read"

lol, it's funny. I should put a copy of one of our mags on the computer. They are allways banging on about this and that, the yanks love their chrome and airbrushed painted cars. Ha Ha.

It seems really the cars you have over there and subtle but it's under the bonnet that counts.

Best way in my opinion. I don't know if you saw my other thread, but, do you know of any companies that would sell me c-west parts, cause obviously I am in England.

Cheers

Yeah chrome on your Honda is definately a no-no here in the U.S. Chrome is really only acceptable here is if its on an S.U.V. or some sort of luxury car like a benz
