    Hey everyone, I just traded in my 2015 LX for a black 2013 Si sedan!

  2. Exterior Problems
    So I got Civic Si Coupe in 2015 and have babied it ever since. It has been garaged every day and I have never driven in rain. The only time the car gets wet is when I am washing it; however, does anyone else notice rust in their rear quarter panel, where the panel meets the rear bumper? Should I...
  3. Downpipes and Exhausts
    Hello all, I'm creating this thread for people who experience problems with this particular exhaust. I've recently installed it, but it's not 100% proper because I'm using the stock catalytic converter bolts, rather than the longer bolts skunk2 sent me. The bolts on my catalytic converter are so...

  8. Exterior Problems
    I always park in corners to avoid getting dings on my car. I seriously dont get how some people are so dumb. Anyways, last night on my way home from work i was shocked to see that my car's side mirror folded towards the hood and there were some scratches on it. On top of that theres this deep...
  9. Detailing, Wash & Wax
    I just bought this Si last week, I'm not sure what these are. They're reminiscent of rust bubbles I had on my '94 Si....but this is a brand new car. There are two small bumps, this is on the lower corner of the passenger side door.

    Hey guys, I was wondering if removing shrouds from your wheel well can prevent salt getting trapped in between and would be better for rust prevention? NVM DELETE THREAD. REALIZED THAT EVERYTHING WILL BE EXPOSED AND CAN CAUSE DAMAGE.

    Anybody doing this for a brand new car? Kinda feels like a shame to drill holes in her and grease everything up. I passed on the dealer package... he couldn't even properly explain what it is they do for $500... regardless... I know these dealer packages are just a way to make money. Anybody...
