Hey guys, Ive been on here a few months and have finally gotten around to taking pictures of the car. Im 16 years of age and this is my first car. I bought it for $4,000 with 98k miles. It has has new paint job (which isn't bad for $400) I know, the next thing I will do is install some coil overs, i plan to lower it 2"-3". not much, as it is my daily driver, and there are some bad intersections and roads here. I only have a part time job so mods will be slow. Let me know what you think and any input you may have for my future mods!

Engine/Performance

-Stock

Interior

-body kit (not sure what type, something clean)
-Custom exhaust
-H22 swap (far future)
-Anything else that happened to slip my mind

Looks nice, but I would replace the 18" rims with some 17's, and then lower it.

h22 swap would be too expensive with a v6 :thinking:

swap in a cl-s 6 speed tranny

and why would you re paint it, if it has a fresh paint job on it :thinking:

welcome, sorry to "criticize"

Maybe lower it about 2 inches?

Overall it looks very nice!

Yeah, thats the plan, then a body kit to make it appear lower.

I was considering doing cl-s swap, but i was told it would be more than the h22 swap. I wasn't going to worry about it until i had most of the money. Im also guessing theres not a way to keep my stock engine and get a manual tranny, since they were never made with one from the factory.

Paint wise, its a lot of work to keep looking clean all the time (thank you florida weather), i was thinking gunmetal with black down the middle, similar to 1bad6's. either that or getting a carbon fiber hood and putting a transparent black finish on it.

6spd transmission from the Acura CL Type-S (keep your engine) > H22 swap (new engine + tranny)

Also, don't waste your money on paint when you already have a nice paintjob.
It looks really nice, just needs to be lowered!
