My 2000 Accord Coupe 5spd

I am 18 and this is my first car, a manual 2000 Honda Accord Coupe, 2.3l SOHC inline four cylinder. I bought it for CAD$2100 in March 2018, has only 98k miles or 158k km. I bought it completely stock, the only problem was a slipping clutch which I already replaced with a new clutch kit and flywheel. I want to keep a clean look, not modify it too much but certainly make it my own.

Mods:

Suspension/Wheels

- 17' Wheels on 205/45 Antares Ingens a1. (Bought the setup used for only $375, and the tires have 95% tread left).

- 15' Integra Type R lightweight rims on 185/65 Goodyear Nordics winter tires (rims were $250 used and Tires were $150 with 90% tread left)

Interior

-Skunk2 Black shift knob ($15/new)

Aesthetics

-Oem factory rear spoiler ($50/used)
-Painted Calipers red
-Carbon fiber license plate cover ($12/new)

Future mods:

-DC Sports EX-5016 muffler (waiting to be installed)($70/new)
-Universal Front Lip (shipped, going to see if it looks good or not)
-DC Sports cold air intake
-Coilovers (give me suggestions, want to spend less than CAD$700)
-Short Shifter (give me suggestions, if anyone has one to sell as well)
-Slotted and drilled rotors
-exhaust headers (suggestions for less than $200, and that won't make car louder

Repairs needed:

-EVAP light
-Daytime lights not working


Thank you for reading and I'll post more as I modify it, leave any suggestions or comments please.

Check the front suspension/ball joints. I had a ball joint shear in half screwing up more than just the ball joint. Laid the car on the ground and the tire was 90 degrees to the car.

Re: My 2000 Accord Coupe 5spd

Car looks good so far. As for suspension, the best bang for your buck would be Function & Form Type 1 coilovers. They’re $500+/- USD. I had them on my Integra before and loved it. I’m thinking of purchasing them for my sedan. And for pics, try uploading them to Flickr and copying the “[ img ]” source they provide.

Welcome to the site. Car looks good, do what you can to protect that paint. Swapping the woodgrain to the silver pieces really sets off a black interior in my opinion. Good call on the manual.

I will look into those for sure, I am either going for Function & Form or Yonaka, whichever one is easier and cheaper to get. And thank you for the flickr suggestion.

I am doing my best to protect the paint, but I will soon do a complete clean and polish also using a clay bar, the paint does not feel very smooth and there are a few scratches to be polished, but I will do my best. And about the woodgrain to silver, I was thinking of wrapping the woodgrain pieces with a carbon fibre wrap, or spray painting them, or like you said getting new pieces. Which of the three you think would work best?
