    stick with 15" steelies and get yourself some 15" spinner hubcaps off ebay, any true pimp knows thats more bling for the buck

    save your money and spend it on something worthwhile. i.e. new stereo, or something unrelated to the car. or, another good option is to buy some nice summer tires, and then spend some money on cheapo steel wheels with winter tires. but, thats only if you live in a place that gets more than an occasional dusting of snow.

    18's on a civic are going to make it slower than it already is. more inertia to get moving with the anemic honda torque curve.

    and please, please, do not spend it on a body kit or a huge rear wing. if these guys with the 100's of extra pounds of crap bolted to their cars think it makes them faster... nevermind... im getting myself all flustered.

    Other then the wing's weight, it also slows them down by extra downforce that they don't need because they are going to slow anyways.. If you don't beleive me, I'll have one of my physics friends write out the example to show the extra un-useful downforce..

    Buy some 18" wheels if you want to look cool, or a sound system (Cheaper, even) if you want to be cool

    the only production street legal cars that actually need the downforce from a whale tale like that are the mustang cobra-R and the latest 03 mustangs... instead of puting a big wing on the new mustangs they just electronically limited their speed so they won't take off.... now a honda isn't ment to be a race car... hell honda doesn't even race them that should tell people something!.... I may do work to my car but I've only made 2 cosmetic changes headlights (converted to euro-spec lights because they are brighter) and a fully functional front splitter.... but I actually intend on tracking my car, I'm not some F&F kiddie

    F&F?

    I am planning on switching my Jetta's lights out some time, but for now I am staying with just dumping in a sound system (dual 500wRMS subs, pair of 6x9 and a pair of 5-6" in the front and of course, amps all around ) and putting in a carputer
