Hey guys, whats goin on. Im here from NY, the states. I recently purchased my friends 98 civic hatch, (ek) about a month ago. I had it for 10 days and it got stolen and stripped.

AEM BLUE COLD AIR INTAKE
SPOON SPORT MIRRORS
MUGEN STYLE FRONT LIP
CIVIC TYPE R STYLL REAR LIP
99 FRONT END COVERSION
DROP ZONE COIL OVERS IN FRONT
PROGRESS REAR SPINGS
17IN TENZO R SHU 4 WHITE WHEELS
YOKOHAMA ES100 205/40WR17
AUTOMETER INSTRUMENT GUAGE CLUSTER
AUTOMETER VACUUM GUAGE
AUTOMETER AIR/FUEL GUAGE.
SONY XPLODE 6 1/2 SPEAKERS IN FRONT
JENSON 6x9 SPEAKERS IN REAR
I recently got it back, practically was a shell, and im planing on making it as similiar to a type r as i can withouth over doing it, since it will be my every day driver. This is the first time modifying a Honda, would like to get more info in the future on how to's and what not. So far i purchased type r lip kit, 99 taillights, black housing headlights, type r gauge cluster, red rota gt3's red type r seats, and new stereo with an alarm this time lol. All i have is a pic of what it looked like when i first got it...let me know what ya think.

Beatiful car mate, god damn thieves!

Well i think you will need the b16b engine, sway bars, civic type r 5 lug conversion / brakes.

As this is your daily drive, i would recommend you the EK9 stock suspension, it handles great, and you can use it for daily drive.

If you need any help with pictures or anything let us know, we can help you. Welcome to the ek9 community :)

Hey, where do you buy stuff? i haven't found a online performance parts store with good customer service in the US!

Tried inlinefour.com they send me the stuff but i need to be calling because they don't respond to emails, its kinda of expensive calling them to me because i dont live in the US.

I just purchased some of the things I needed from JDMCARBOY.com..their out of california US. It took a while to get it here..finally received everything today believe it or not, but thats cause they shipped everything all at once. They do have real parts and they also have the knockoffs. Since mines a daily driver/im still workin where it got stolen in the first place..im playing it safe and going knock off, but at least give it some style. But id try them. Also passwordjdm is really good I hear but be ready to shell out the $$. Good luck..let me know if you need anything else.. What are you looking for? Ill keep an eye out for ya.

Yea i know jdmcarboy definately has the carbon fiber trunk/mirrors...and passwordjdm will have the other parts for you. With jdm car boy, you can either instant message your order to a rep when they are online, calling is impossible only do to the fact their in the priocess of moving to a new warehouse and they have one phone line all day, or you can email your order or even fax it with the provided order form. There hours are weird, for eastern time in the US they worked from 1pm to 10pm. Dont know with your hours, you might have to wake up to make a phone call lol. Good luck. Heres soem links for certain items you might be lookin for..

Yea they pop on from time to time...I also emailed them first..waited a day for them to email me back just to make sure they were reputable. Gave em my order, and they were pretty quick with the items they did have. For me it took 3 weeks cause they had to order my steering wheel hub lock which took time to get to that warehouse to them..then to me. Plus i ordered 800 worth of things so to cram it all in one big box was kind of fun lol. Should be posting new pics of my ride soon cant wait.
