The snow's finally melting and I'm hungry for a little cosmetic tweaking of my ride. To get it out of the way, yes, I know none of this will improve my performance. :p

Car: 2004 Civic 4dr
Color: Magnesium

Summer Rims
Thinking: 16s with 195/55 rubber
The 14 steelies can do winter-tire duty, so i want a set of something nice for warm weather. 17s would be too rough a ride for me I think.
Riceiness: Low

CAI
Thinking: DIY forum
Why not? It seems easy enough from the advice in the DIY forum, and why shell out a bundle of money for a length of pipe?
Riciness: Moderate

Strut Tower Bar
Thinking: Triple-bolt something?
Mujen, Injen, Neuspeed ... huh? Isn't this just a steel rod that "ties the front end together?"
Riciness: Moderate

Painted Brake Calipers
Thinking: DIY forum - red.
I like them, okay? At least it's not baby blue.
Riciness: High

Painted Valve Cover
Thinking: Buy compatible OEM/junkyard cover, DIY forum - red.
I won't even try to justify this. :lol2
Riciness: The San Francisco Treat

Comments, catcalls, "be quiet you silly newbie" and implication that my real name is "Uncle Ben" are welcome. :D

If you like that stuff then fine, don't worry about what other people think about your ride.
Oh, I'm not worried about what other people think. I'm just asking for opinions. I never said I'd listen. ;)

I'm more looking for weigh-in from people who've done any of this, have suggestions for further stuff to work on, etc ...

Thanks for the kind words :D

Be quiet you silly noob! :hehe

I don't think the stuff you're planning to do is rice. It's more like being cheap haha j/k.

But yeah what 40_Below said you shouldn't care what others think of your ride.

BTW welcome to SHO and its mugen not mujen. ;)

ok IMO none of that is hardcore ricey..just more or less the basics that most people do whether or not they like to admit it.
the valve cover isn't bad, I would do it but I'm too lazy lol

I've painted my calipers cause i was bored

the rims are fine

my buddy with a hatch just removed the airbox from the engine and got a airfilter off a 300zx and stuck it on there (works like anything else right?)

for strut tower brace go with a Neuspeed, due to the fact it is a straight brace with no pins and no pivot points like most the others. let's see..a brace with pivots..doesn't that defeat the purpose?
