  1. 17 in or 18 in Wheels and Tires with Factory Height?

    Wheels and Tires
    Hey all, I have a 2012 Honda Coupe LX. It seems like there is a lot of debate on here about which size has the better appearance. I cannot decide. From researching around the site, I have found that most people usually go with 215/45/17 or 225/40/18. I will not be lowering the vehicle as of...
  2. Installing factory nav on non-nav Si question

    Audio/Video & Navigation
    I called Honda to ask if it was possible to install the factory nav unit on a non-nav car and they told me they couldn't do it because they had no tech specs on doing the conversion. So for anyone that has done headunit work on this car, does anyone know how difficult it would be to simply buy...
  3. Factory sub replacement

    Audio/Video & Navigation
    Just wondering what the factory sub-woofer wattage was? I just want to do a simple upgrade to a better woofer and i'm hoping I can keep the wattage minimal as so I wont need an additional amp. If I needed an amp I might as well go for a full system instead of just a small upgrade.

    Suspension & Brakes
    Hello 9th gen community. Does anyone here work for Honda that would have access to the new 2013 civics (non Si) alignment specs? (include full specs from toe, camber, caster, etc for front and rear). Can someone please post if they do? I'd really appreciate it. Or if they are the same...
  5. Does replacing factory H/U break i-MID completely, or just remove audio screen?

    Audio/Video & Navigation
    Not sure if I want to keep the OEM head unit and run it to something like a JBL MS-8, or go aftermarket H/U. One concern is how tightly the i-MID screen is tied to the OEM H/U. Can anyone who's removed theirs comment on whether the other i-MID stuff, like fuel consumption and range, still...
  6. If you ever wondered why your factory speakers sound so bad...

    Audio/Video & Navigation
    It's because the factory mids only cost $8 each, and the EX tweeters $6, lol
  7. How's the factory nav compare to Google Maps on Android?

    Audio/Video & Navigation
    I've used Google Maps on my phone for years and am considering finally moving up to a Civic with a nav system for the convenience of it. Anyone else made that switch and have opinions on what's better about GM and/or what's better about the Civic's system? Thanks
  8. Honda Factory Performance (HFP) Suspension Review vs OEM SI suspension

    Suspension & Brakes
    This is something I'd always wanted to get for my 8th gen si, but never wanted to spend the money so now with just buying a new car, the holidays and the HFP suspension just released out of the HFP package, I thought, "what better time to buy the suspension" lol At any rate, I searched around...

    Audio/Video & Navigation
    Hi All, I'm looking to replace front factory speakers with 651s. I am more interested in improving sound quality rather than bass. Will the factory HU power these efficiently without an aftermarket amp? I should say that I have an EX w/ "premium" sound (i.e. 7 speaker setup) Thanks. Sent...

  15. Factory blue ambient light

My 12 EX-L has a spot where its supposed to be but doesn't have a light there. Any 12 civics come with this light? Or is it just...
  16. CAI out of factory air box? (Si)

    Intakes and TB Spacers
    I was wondering if anybody tried to make a CAI out of the factory airbox by removing the apparently über restrictive resonator chamber!? IMHO a simple K&N panel filter and the removal of ''this'' could make a very potent CAI without the risc of having a CEL due to the MAF sending a bad signal to...
  17. Question about factory Navigation

    Audio/Video & Navigation
    It looks like I'm going for a Tafetta White Si coupe. The decision I'm trying to make is whether to go with navigation or not. My dealer has one with and one without. I wouldn't need the navigation fucntion as we've got a couple of pretty nice Garmins already. However, I'm not a fan of the...
