    Upon getting an A in my studies, my dad gave me a budget of Rs 150,000 to modify it and do all the changes i wanted to do. So heres all the stuff i did step by step and am still doing it, hopefully i will keep you updated and InshaAllah this project will be complete within the month of June.. I have to do everything in this car; From the suspension to the paint job, and from the locks to the speed gauge! This car has been used by us for 10 years btw

    Ps: If anyone in Karachi knows where I can get a nice inexpensive muffler costing 1000 - 4000 which has a nice deep sound, please let me know the location

    @civiclover99

    u can convert it to the looks of 2000 model as ekdrifter already mentioned as it will suit it.the spaces of bumpers can be filled buh it should be a good denter to do the job
    better option is to get totally new bumpers
    u will get new sideskirts and bumpers(front,back) in less den 20,000 rupees

    also get a spoiler if u lower it nd dont get a spoiler if u r kepping the same height
    nd get the door panels painted to silver which are black
    also chng the front grill

    @civiclover88

    get some good springs that will lower ur car and dont think of getting the old 1's modified as they will break up

    and also get sum low profile tyres and it will also lower the car to sum extent and dont go for big rims lyk 17,use 15 or 16

    I would suggest taking care of the rust problems before sinking more money into the car. Also, please drive legally and safely. Nobody here would like you added to the already grim statistics.

    my advice is :
    A nice denting n remove the rust
    Get a nice paint job from a good painter...
    Lower your ride
    Side Skirts
    Decent bumper extensions (not too much with ugly looking grills)
    Angel Eyes/Projection Headlights With Rings
    16" or 17" rims with low profile tyres
    Nice racing steering
    Bucket Seats
    Nice smocked headlights/crystal lights can also work
    Mesh Grill with "H" emblem
    this whats coming in my mind fir now!!!

    I seriously agree with storm... i started driving in 2000, i still remember driving my 86 rolla in 2000 and thinking about my to-be- new city 2001 which was to be delivered in a few days... u r 14yrs, i was just 10 yrs old when i started driving, hardly anyone believes that. I know you may feel competent enough, but trust me, you are not... no one can be, in this age.even i used to think the same but later realized i was wrong and thanked GOD that i never got myself into trouble.although i drove my family to multan from sargodha on my car without any problem when i was just 15yrs, but that was a big mistake... my dad never wanted me to drive at this age but i used to be very stubborn n never listened to him... it was my good luck that nothing bad happened ...

    As for you, i wud suggest you to repair the car (not modify) and hire a driver for yourself. As you ve already stated that u hit ur car while racing, remember, u arent competent enough yet...

    do one thing get those 150k from ur dad and tell him to deposit them in ur own personal account in term deposit till the age u qualify for the driving license, till then paisa bhi ziyada ho jae ga and u will be of 18 years of age and will be able to get ur license made

    and plz don't go for hids and projection lights as these things are just waste of money, stick to original lights and get them clean and buffed if possible and use halogen bulbs as they provide far better visibilty than the cheap *** chinese hids. don't waste ur dad's hard earned money boy. i have been thru all this hids and such stuff and trust me this simply a waste ur money and nohting else, do din maza ae ga but then afterwards u gonna regret abt it.

    just go for repaint,nice rims n tires, no need to lower ur car as this model of civic is already quite low and lowereing further will make u crazy u won't be able to drive ur car in karachi. and go for bumper repaint only no modifying them, complete change of oils like engine oil,gear oil, brake oil and get gud sparks plugs, try getting new set brakes if the existing ones need replacement. but hey i wud suggest u to plz avoid driving without a license bcoz even u don't do anything wrong and drive properly but if some body else hits ur car or does anything else then u will be the who will be getting in trouble coz obviously u will be without a license and u don't want to get into such mess, do u?

    @ashbal : Lowering and all that stuff would probably be done later, as of now im just focusing on the cars basic needs i.e suspension, a paint job, rims a muffler.. Thanks for the advice though, i'll surely look upon it later when ive got more money which i can invest in my car

    @jugno: Haha, sure man i wont get into ricing it. And yeah, civic's are the best family cars running on the streets of karachi

    @turbolover96: Yeah dude, thats exactly what I was planning on doing for my civic.. For the bumper, im only getting the back one changed.. It will be about 2 inches lower than the stock one. The front bumper will remain the same

    @chelsentus: If you know much about Karachi, then it was a shop close to reegal! I think somewhere close to Plaza! The shops called Guddu Modifications and if you want, i can tell you that guys number. Has he ripped me off or is the price good?

    @309: Sure mate i wont lower the rides hight. The back bumper is already gone for modification and it will be ready tomorrow. But im gonna be going on Thursday to get it fixed. So yeah, thats when you guys are gonna get updates of my civic!


    Thanks for all the comments
