    new polished metal lx coupe

    hey guys. like the title says, i'm a new civic owner looking to learn here. this is my first car ever so i really have zero knowledge about mods. much help needed, and i was hoping i could get some tips and advice from elders here well anyways i'm sure you all know how the stock lx coupe looks like, and i need some advice. so i just bought foglights from college hill honda, which is a start. next thing i want to work on are my headlights. no idea where to start about these. i'm looking for a clean white light instead of the factory yellowish. any help on this? and i don't want it too flashy or extremely bright light, just a clean pure white light for my headlights. thanks alot everyone! nothing illegal!!

    There are a lot of mods you can do to your car so it really all depends on what you want to change about your vehicle. Just to list a few:

    1)HFP body kit
    2)New Wheels
    3)New LEDs for interior map, dome, trunk lights
    4)Plasti dip emblems or JDM emblems
    5)New sound system (Speakers, subs, touch screen head unit)
    6)Ambient lighting
    7)Etc Etc Etc

    As far as changing your headlights, you might wanna look for some HIDs. I have provided help here and here

    if you want hid's and want them cheap you should look up ddmtuning. it sounds like you may went the 5000k.

    this could be what you're looking for:



    next thing i would get if i were you would be tints and rims. those change the look of the car the most.

    thanks for the replies everyone. what's the difference with HIDS? and would you suggest 55W or 35W? and what's bulbtype/adapter cables and other sections required on the ddmtuning you just showed me? sorry for the massive questions!

    Enter in exactly what he has in the picture. 35W, 9006 Bulb Size, 5000K-6000K is what you have to decide between for color and the rest you don't need!

    alright i got it. i just watched a video and it seems like 35w doesn't provide a safe driving condition? anyone have any insight on 50w vs 35w?

    i've heard the 55w one might show dashboard errors. i would go with 35w.

    a quick question since i'm on ddm tuning and about to place my order, what would you suggest for yellow foglights? would the stock foglight with yellow overlays be good enough or would you suggest this http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/Halogen-Driving-Bulbs
