Wassup guys! On 8/6/2017 I decided to purchase this mint CG6. I was in need of a reliable car and I stumbled upon
this one on Craigslist. I missed driving manual so I thought this car would be perfect for me. Did a quick carfax
report and the car is a clean title, 180,XXX miles, two previous owners, and it has been regularly serviced at Honda.
I bought it at a pretty good price and I'm super stoked about it. I have a lot of plans but I'm keeping the engine
stock. The mods will mainly be cosmetic as I want a car I can drive from point A to point B in style. Here are some
pics from the day I first got her! Enjoy! :)

Thank you, it seems like the previous owners have taken great care of her. She definitely needs some TLC on the paint but I have future plans for that.

The first thing I did was removing the dealer license plate frame from the front and switching out to the Canibeat license plate frame in the rear.

When I first test drove the car, I asked the previous owner how he turned the AC off and he was using a pair of pliers. -_- So I had to buy a new climate control and bam, good as new. Now I just need to find a replacement clock.

I bought some new goodies, I was tired of the old worn out stock shift knob, so I decided to purchase a Euro R CL1 shift knob. It has a slight bronze finish to it which looks pretty good and feels so much better. Also, I got tired of the rusted bolts holding up the license plate frame so I bought replacement ones from Downstar Inc. Then I decided to go ahead and ditch the front plate, cause who gives a fucc right? Its the little things in life. :rock:

CG6s always look good in white. Very nice.

I live in a 1 plate state, so not having a front plate is normal. Plus I think 6th gens look better without a front plate. Nice looking ride though. I wish I'd found a rust free one myself, but I'll take what I've got since it's paid for. :)

Agreed. This is my third white car and I love it.

Lucky, idk why California insists on having a front plate. They would save so much money by only requiring one plate, but whatever.
