Sup people of 9thgen, I use to have a 11' auto r18 but decided to trade in for a 13' si :). So far so good, this build thread won't be anything crazy (for now haha), just tracking my progress.

To start off, here was my r18 at it's prime.

Decided to part out and trade her in for a 13' fb6.


They couldn't find any white fb6's near my area so it took them 1 week to locate it, they ended up transferring from a dealer 75 miles away from me.

The day it arrived :love:




The day after (decided to put my I love driving slow plate frame from my old car, and removed dealer plate frame from front)

Added some Nokya Hyper Yellow Drl's from the r18 and debadged rear civic emblem, also gave her a wash

So I ordered a 35w 5000k hid kit from amazon based on good reviews, installed today but doesn't look like they are 5000k bulbs......






So I emailed them, and they said the bulbs prob got mismatched and they're sending me a new set of 5000k bulbs

Ordered some Zonetech led wedge bulbs from amazon after finding out the 2013's do not use festoon bulbs in the interior anymore.

some comparison pics with a penny and my old festoon bulb from my 8th (which was equivalent in brightness)

I still have to figure out what to do with the rear dome light since the socket isn't pointed vertical, it's pointed horizontal. But for now I'm not too worried since I don't use the rear light much anyways.

So I uninstalled my opt7 hid kit after they sent me replacement bulbs and was still flickering. Bulbs again were very blue for 5000k. I also found out this kit was a dc kit instead of ac....so I uninstalled immediately. Ordered a set of 4300k hid's from my friends company for both fogs and low beams so I hope I'll have better luck when that is installed.
