  • Hi, I'm trying to buy either some iridium or double platinum ngk spark plugs for my 1999 civic. Should i get the NGK iridiums over the NGK double platinums? I heard that the iridiums last as long and is about $4 cheaper than the double platinums at my local auto store. Thanks.
  • Does anyone know what size speakers are in the door panels and the size pf the speakers in the back as well in an 05' civic LX
  • Does anyone know what size speakers are in the door panels and the size pf the speakers in the back as well in an 05' civic LX

    The speakers are 6 1/2" round in the front and back in the LX sedan. The coupe has 6" X 9" in the rear.
  • I was wondering if it is possible to install rear disk brakes instead of the original drums that Honda putted on the civic? I know that the Acura 1.7 EL is almost the same car and it comes with rear disk brakes, but I dont know if it would fit on the Civic???

    i still have not gotten a stright answer about my model issue, i have a honda civic SI, 1.7 L engine. everywhere i look for aftermarket parts they ask if my models a ex,lx, or si, when i tell them mines an SI they look up the part for the SIR which is a 2.0 L engine, why do i keep getting this prob when dealing with U.S companys.
  • Hey there... I'm guessing that your rims offset is 42 or higher. I had my 92 hatchback cx for about 5 years so I'm a bit familiar with the car. I found that 15 X 6.5 rims with 40 offset work best in the EG models. They work great with the car's balance. If you have 16 X 7 rims use a 205X40X16 tire, that worked some okay with my set up. Also, find out from the previous owner if the car was hit. That could be another reason why. What kind of suspension are runing? Coilovers, camber kits and so on... About the swap, get a B16 from either a CRX or an Si (look for low miles), but for better results get a B18B bottom end from an Integra and put a B16 Vtech head, you get the best of both worlds, the 142 of torque (from the B18B) and the 160 HP from the B16. This swap is a lot cheaper than buying a B18C engine just make sure you get a good Honda shop to do the drilling for the oil pass, if you live in California, you should have no problems finding one.

    Hello,

    I'm in the Chicago area looking to add leather to my 2006 Civic EX when I get it.

    Does anyone have any pictures to show and/or places they've been for this? How much was it?

    Secondly, will heated seats work as well or will it drain the battery? Is it okay to have the interior illumination and heated seats?

    All help would be appreciated!

    Thanks!
  • I just bought a 02 EX Coupe and the dealer has already washed his hands off the car. I noticed a bright light, a blue coloured LED indicator that comes ON every time I step on the gas to accelerate the car. The light, even though unnoticable in the day, is very bright and irritating during the night time, specially when it comes on and goes off regularly. There is a small sticker on top of the light which reads "VTEC". This light is just next to the 12 amp socket below the AC control panel. Any idea what this light may be and if it is standard equipment? Thanks in advance.
  • I am currently trying to install a remote starter/alarm combo to my 1993 Honda Civic. The device is an X-Sheild XS-800S. I was told by the manufacturer that it works for both manual and automatic transmission, although it only came with installation diagrams for automatic transmission.
    I am looking for some information on how to wire the remote starter part of the system for a manual car. I know that I must bypass the starter wire and somehow connect to the clutch switch, but I don't know how.
    If anyone can help me or has come across a good resource, please let me know.
    Thanks for the help,

    Hello,

    Has anyone here had the interior illumination installed on an '06 Civic? Any pics other than the one on Honda's site?

    Thanks! :)
  • I busted the right passenger side tail light on my 05' Honda Civic.. I wanted to know how much it should cost to repair one or probably replace. And there are some deep scratches on the bumper and I wanted to know if that would cost a lot to? Thanks.

  • Has anyone purchased / installed the XM Satellite Radio Kit on a new 2006 Civic that is "XM-Ready"? If so, how much did you pay (parts and labor)? Is it possible to buy parts for this that are not Honda parts (i.e. cheaper)? If so, where? Did anyone have someone other than their dealer install it (e.g. Best Buy)? I want to add XM directly to the navigation unit on a new 2006 Civic Sedan EX with navigation, but most dealers want to charge around $700-800!!! What a rip-off! Price should be no more than half of that! Please let me know. Thanks.
  • :confuse: :confuse:
    Hi all. My name is Cait. I'm nineteen and I am looking to buy my very first car. When researching the Honda civic, I realized that, besides the year, manual or automatic transmision were NOT my only options. Can someone please tell me what these different "trims" are all about (a.k.a. these extra letters and numbers and price differences)? Thanks again (please forgive my ignorance)...
  • I just bought a 99 Civic LX with the stock AM/FM radio. I would like to upgrade to a CD player. Can I use the AM/FM/CD radio out of an EX model? Do these radios require an external amp or other equipment, or would it just be plug and play? I'm considering obtaining one from a slavage yard or from eBay. Most of these radios don't have the anti theft code available, but they claim that it can be obtained from the dealer. Will a Honda dealer give me the code if I have the radio in hand, or do I need additional information? Thanks for your help! -Brian

    Just got my civic and I love it...except for the stereo - which is not bad - but I would like to replace the back speakers with a brand that can produce a little more bass, not deep hip hop thumping bass, but a decent sound without getting too technical; no amps, just good speakers. Something I can install on my own - pop off, replace, etc...Any suggestions?
  • College Hills has good installation PDFs see this link:

    http://www.collegehillshonda.com/instructions/8th_gen_civ_sedan/illumination.pdf-

    Can't be installed with fog lights on lX and EX,
  • Anyone installed exhaust and intake on a 2006 Honda Civic Si yet?

  • Hi:

    I replaced the rear speakers in the 2006 civic lx with pioneer 6.5"
    *coaxial* speakers but not because of bass response. This otherwise
    excellent car is tainted by crappy speakers which have
    high-frequecy rattle or buzz or jingle on female voices or music
    with cymbals. I am surprised that no honda review has mentioned this
    distortion.

    The factory speakers have a plastic frame with a tiny magnet. Even
    the dirt cheap speakers from wal-mart have a metal frame with hefty
    magnet. Do you see where this is going?

    The factory speakers have only one mounting screws and two plastic
    tabs to place them in the mounting hole. To access the mounting
    screw you have to pop a plastic cover from inside the trunk and
    then unscrew from the back seat.

    Since the mounting hole is horseshoe shaped, no aftermarket speaker
    will fit. I had to cover the hole with a ring cut from 1/4"
    polystrene to adapt to the round speaker.

    If you want solid bass, you need an amp and enclosed subwoofer.
    If the woofer is not contained, the trunk lid and plastic panels
    in the civic will vibrate giving loud, cheap sound.

    Cheers,
    BobMc

  • i just got a 97 civic vtec head and i was wondering if it could swap right on to my 89 crx si with the D16A6 motor? if so, what are the steps that must be taken to complete it?
