Rice to me would be if you used more than one color in the paint job. Yours is solid, and it looks nice in my opinion. But remember, Red is the color thats pulled over most. :D

Honestly, if you wanna be happy with it, do what YOU want. Otherwise, you won't be happy. If you do what everyone else does or likes, you might not like it. The only thing i could say about the 19's though is they'll probably rub unless you trimmed your wheel wells. I have chrome wipers, chrome washers, hopefully chrome 18's soon, and changing my emblem to the 3g's chrome one. I like the gunmetal/chrome look on my car, but that's just what i like.

Gunmetal rims on your car would look awesome, you might want to stick to 18's the 19's could give you problems.

As for you two, the man asked us for his opinion therefor I tell him what I do and do not like about his car as well as any ideas that I might have, he doesn't have to like my opinion but he did ask for it.

In the end he only does what he wants and what he can afford to do not what anyone tells him.

I never there was anything wrong with giving your opinions, i gave mine. I was replying to SpyderEclipseGst's "gunna run 19's black gunmetal no?" statement. If you took any offense to that, Crankwalk, you shouldn't have, and it isn't your place to talk for him like that, either.

hey your spyder looks good, the chrome wipers could go, the wheels look good on the car although in my opinion 18" wheels are still alright, i wouldnt go any bigger. i personaly like 17". thats my :2cents:

thanks fellas i appreciate your opinions. I know ill get a few negative comments, but i made this thread expecting to. So hey its just a rice/or nice opinion poll basically. All the extra comments are welcome. I like the debates and what others would do or not do. like yeah the chrome whipers are commin off. Kinda rice now that i think of it..as well as the rims... ALOT of offers off the street for my rims.. i think ima take the higest bidder now that i can get my 19 gun metals for cheap. Just bent the back walls for room. Pics will come as followed. but keep the comments comming.

Mods are as follows, Ill get a pic of engine up early this weekend to early into next week to replace my rice of a pic I got now.
Mods are stated in the order I bought and installed them.
1. Intake/ just the filter via gst's dont need the whole metal connector to the turbo. The stock helps to release heat takin to the turbo.
2. spark plugs/wires. <---got my biggest hps gains EVER..*giggle*
3. 2 1/2 inch cat back exhaust..custom.
3. turbo xs dual stage boost controller/gauge set stock 16 psi 2nd stage 19 psi.
4. walbro 255 fuel pump. for that o so deaded fuel cut.
5. Lower and upper i/c piping. Noticed alot quicker spool time here.
6. greddy tpye s BOV. venting into the atmosphere. running rich with alot of backfireing from the exhaust. closed back up.
7. Custom 3 inch down pipe /w flanges. <---biggest noticeable hp gains *serious* yep even than the boostconroller set to 16 psi.
Now that my mods are posted honda boys thinkr I should run a 15.3 at best 1/4 mile time. Just check the thread I posted h22 turbo crx vs spider eclipse gst. Man that would just be a waist of money and time.

Dude weres my dsm?

You drive a 1987 honda civic? What are you still in grade school? Damn why do I always end up getting in nick picks with little boys. I could do anything with my car as long as I choose to. I want to hit the 10's. Ok i sell my rims. Gut my car. Invest in a 20g /w front mount. Buy slicks for the fwd. Boom there ya go buddy. All I have to say. with 4 grand i could make my spyder awd and forget the slicks ill do it on street tires. And belive it when I say this chump. My funds make that a possiblility. But I choose to have a house, 2nd vehicle, and a car thats just as good looking as it is fast. Now how does 18's become rice.. Thats $1900 I could have put into performance and been done with this already. But in this case i choose not to. Not just because i want to be fast. I want to look good doing it. I will never waist my time telling you about a honda kill. Its 99% of the time not even a race. Its usually over from the first chirp of tires! And Im pretty sure most ppl in this forum will agree. Even your honda buddys agree. Just look at the honda vs. eclipse threads. Dsms just always come out on top. Not just hondas tho. Fords, chevys, trans ams, and the like. Modded vs modded = dsm ownage!!!

the 18's arent rice, just your chrome ones are..

Where do you people get off saying that I said you couldnt do whatever you wanted to your car? You asked for opinions, I gave you mine..

My civic is a 91 btw, two different body styles..I dont know why my profile says 87.

Im curently useing eiboch springs. had to lower the car 3 times because of camber problems and height. 1st set was progress springs 2 inch drop. That gave me alot of neg camber and car was too low. 2nd set was r1 racing coilovers. Those things coudent handle the weight of my car and my front end came down on rough train tracks.. That one hurt. Then i went with the eiboch springs. A 1 and a half inch drop. This gave me no neg camber in the front and slight neg camber in the back. Dont ask me how, I just do....(weird). But ride is smooth but struts come and go like oil changes. They just dont last long...

If you got a ton of go with your ton of show, u be good to go... speaking of go, those the wipers got to, and i like the idea of gunmetal 19's... 19's look perfect in the wells, although i'm not sure of the racing characteristics...

btw, what struts are you going thru? i've got eibach's and kyb struts, and am deciding between tien or tanabe coilovers, but in the meantime i've had tokico struts highly reconded... also if you really want to show your ride check this out: my ride is @ http://members.cardomain.com/djvc1 ... check it out, you can navigate form there to get your ride up on the site. there isn't a performance network like this, but it's fun none the less...
