    Okay, so here is what I can tell so far-

    Most of the products are from big honda names like Ractive that charge big dough for fluff. He also has some JDM stuff like a skyline body kit (if you believe that). Apparently, this car is over $100Gs if you count the origionally purchase price. Yeah, it could be a lot of labor charges too. You'll also notice that he's just got a LOT of crap. I'd be willing to bet he has MORE GAUGES than his turbo puts out PSI. I find the car just a tad tacky myself. No small wonder he has no sponsors- he's got a ridiculous amount of $$$ invested and no trophys or big 1/4 mile times to boast of. We'll see, i haven't got any e-mail yet...

    haha.... it's sad to see someone waste so much money making their car look even more ugly. I rather drive a stock Civic than to be rolling around in that rice out one getting laughed at. Also, I can't believe there are people bidding on it....

    I'll give him this- nice wheels and killer brakes. I think the engine could have some potential but he didn't list any form of engine management. Hmmm... also I didn't notice any drivetrain enhancements. I'd take a stock civic with those brakes, some of the suspension and engine stuff, he just went crazy. Yes, it is sad. And BTW, I am not a civic or a Honda hater, heck I'd like to have a civic to keep miles off of the REX. But i wouldn't rice it out.

    Um Engine mods, anyone!?!?!

    Does anyone else notice the lack of thousands of dollars of engine mods!?!?!?

    I mean, its a Greddy turbo kit for sh#ts sake. WIDELY available and AFFORDABLE!!!. No internal modifications, is the engine even built? My good friend had a Drag stage III kit on his SI total invested after the purchase of the car was only near 10-15k with complete built engine, trans, driveline.

    I am guessing this guy spent 93k for body work?!
