I plan on doing so, really haven't had the time or cash to do so yet. I just got laid off yesterday, so that might be a while before I am able to do so, same with the tires. Took off the hub caps because they were starting to crack, and look even nastier than the rims.

to paint your rims is like 4-5$
for amber corners on ebay is 15$

there is alot of things you can do to your car to make it look nice that dont cost much at all

Yes, but a good paint job will take quite a bit of time, and lowering it would take new shocks, which would cost quite a bit. Could cut the springs but I'd like not to go so ghetto. With the corner lights, you mean completely amber?

a paint job on the rims only takes about 1 hr and thats taking them off the car. use a pack of playing cards to stick in the rims between the tire then spray them.
to lower it ive used some ebay coil overs and they werent that bad, now there are some that are crap. you dont have to buy shocks right away, it will just be a bouncy ride when you hit bumps.

for the amber corner lights, here is a great pair 23$ shipped

Yeah, not doing it, you guys are right. the Tein S-tech springs would be the furthest I would want to drop it, I would prefer it a wee bit higher though.

The H&R OE Sport springs are the only ones I can think of with less drop than the Tein S-techs. It's like a 1" drop.

I have the H&R Sport springs, not the OE sport, and they're great... about the height of s-techs but with better handling.

WTF??? WHO WHITE WALLS A CIVIC?....DUDE DON'T! You say you don't wanna cut the springs because you don't wanna go ghetto but if you put white walls on the Civic, you may as well cut the springs, cuz that right there would be str8 ghetto.
