Bored as can be so I decided to do a build thread. Sry for the big pics no matter how small I tried to shrink them some wouldnt budge.

Sourced some New HIDs from work and installed evarything.

the chrome side badge is easy enough to paint, wrap or swap. I ended up with the S206 badges ($50 or something).

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

Don't put an STi badge on a WRX, even if the WRX is faster than a stock STi. It's just not kosher. :wink:

There's a 135i that I see parked downtown quite often. He has a bunch of BMW Performance Parts on the car and a nice dual exhaust, but he also has an M3 badge. Makes me want to take a scrapper to the trunk every time... :banghead:

I wouldn't STi up my car anyway it's not my style. And after looking at the prices on Japanparts I have decided just to wrap mine until I make new ones from Carbon Fiber. I'll post pics when done but thanks for the input.

My dad lives in Lyndeborough. He probably saw your car on his way to Brattleboro and back.
