    Smile *** Former Civic owner ***

    Hey all, my name is Jay and I've been tuning imports for quite a while. I've always loved anything fast and Japanese (insert female joke). I previously built a 1998 Civic hatchback that took about 4 years. I am part of the EK Squad who prides themselves on clean, well built and kept cars. I just purchased a 06 WRX for what I thought was a great deal. It was very well maintained and has some light mods done. It seems like a good platform to jump off from. I daily all my cars, so all future mods will have that in mind. I'm 34 and live in Las Vegas and hope to learn a few things on this forum about my new car after learning A LOT about Hondas over the last 8 years. I also love automotive photography so check out my sig and take a peek. Laters

    Welcome.

    I always liked all the shades of silver or gray that Subaru offered.

    Enjoy the site.

    Anytime the exterior mod list is longer than the engine and suspension mod list combined there needs to be a shift in priorities, IMO. Not passing judgment, just sayin'...

    Anyway, your car does look great. Congrats on jumping ship to the good guys ....JK (kind of).

    And welcome to the forum.

    (how about some pics of the civic?)

    Everyone has a list in their mind on what they want to do first to the car but with the OP he didn't add those mods. He said he just bought it that way (i don't know how that's "lightly" modded tho lol) it does look very good tho!

    Ahh, I'm a doucher. Sorry ma'am!

    Pretty sure the sways are 24mm front and rear.

    Yeah, as stated I bought it like that which I wanted so that I could mod the engine to my liking.

    Last pic of the Civic before I sold it.

    Welcome! We have (almost) the same car! I used to be into Civics too, but I don't think I'll be going that route again after owning my WRX.

    I'm loving it too! I drove my Civ for the first time in a week today, and I felt kinda... Blah. I decided to go ahead and sell it. I doubt I'll be satisfied with a Honda unless I mod the poo out of it, and, well, I'm kinda lazy haha. That and I need to sink money into things like buying a house and my career etc etc. I hate growing up.
