The Honda Civic is one of the most popular cars on the road. Combining fuel efficiency with fantastic looks, it takes you where you want to go in style.
The only thing better than a fresh-from-the-factory vehicle is one that you’ve tuned out yourself. Here are the top five mods to check out when making the Civic your own.
1. Cold Air Intake Systems
Converting your Civic to a cold-air intake is quick, easy, and gives you extra throttle and sound that will make sure you turn heads when ripping down the road. Since it’s one of the simplest mods to install yourself, you can even get discounts with online coupons on auto parts and tools to get you started.
Sure, you can stick with Honda’s exhaust and muffler system, but why? There are plenty of options that will make your Civic look better and sound meaner, all while boosting performance.
There’s no sense in adding power and performance if you don’t have the means to stop when you need to. Keep safety a top priority by swapping out stock brakes and rotors, and give your wheels a new look at the same time.
4. Suspension Kits
Lowering your Civic’s profile does more than making it look cool. Quality suspension kits will help reduce the center of gravity and make cornering a breeze.
5. Alloy Wheels
Let’s face it, a great set of rims does a lot to make any car look impressive. If you’re getting the Civic new, get the cheapest option for wheels since you’re just going to swap them out for something much better later.
When it comes to getting your mods, you might ask “Is there a store that sells auto parts near me?” Don’t worry, many of these components can be purchased online as well as in stores, making modding your Civic even more convenient!
