    Traded the 2014 CBP Si Coupe for a 2019 CBP Si Coupe. Bring on the 10th. Initial mods:

    Blacked out front badge
    Canadian Market Turbo Decals
    Tested black plastidip on chrome window molding
    Rear Civic badge delete
    WeatherTech floor liners

    Future plans:
    Will paint calipers. I typically go yellow, but with the Browns' dominance this year, I may do red to match the Si bading.
    Hondata Pro
    Black plastidip all chrome side window molding
    Stock mods (interior accent lighting, red led cabin lighting, etc)

    Bought a new 2014 Coupe, so my MODs have been reset. I did not lease this car, so I will be making some more durable mods.

    List of mods for my 2014 CBP Si Coupe:

    Yellow painted calipers
    JDM Hazard Button
    Civic Si Battery Tie
    Hella Yellow fog light bulbs
    Red LED interior lighting
    9thcivic.com Sticker
    K & N CAI

    Planned future mods:

    Magnaflow catback exhaust
    Hondata Flashpro
    Factory Red Ambient LightingRed LED Interior Lights
    Eibach Pro-Kit springs
    Eibach Anti-Roll-Kit

    List of mods for my RR 2012 Si Sedan:

    Factory Red Ambient LightingRed LED Interior Lights
    Yellow painted calipers
    Red Plasti-dipped rear diffuser
    JDM Hazard Button
    JDM badges

    Awesome! Looks great. If you ever hear some nut honking his horn at you around town it is probably me in my black Si Great job! When you got the ECU update did you notice any difference with the rev hangs?

    It's improved, but I would not say that it's an enormous difference. It's quite a bit of work getting the dealer to hook the car up (I got them to hook it up when I took it in for an oil change). The update is not deemed necessary by Honda, so the dealers don't know about it. Not sure which dealer you work with, but good luck with getting the update.

    I really like the wheels Arm0ged0n has and was thinking about purchasing a set. However, I'm seriously contemplating the MagnaFlow cat back exhaust system. After that, I suppose I'll have no choice but mod the CAI (impossible to sell both to the wife at the same time). I looked at some other exhausts that are less expensive (Tsudo), but the reviews I've read suggest there are distinct quality issues. The price is definitely nice at $350, but it seems that you get what you pay for. Plus, I can order the MagnaFlow from Summit and save on shipping by picking it up at the store.

    Thanks! I was pleased with how it turned out. A little underexposed, but with the headlights on, it's kind of hard to avoid.

    I was very surprised that plasti-dip red is practically the same shade as Rallye Red. Should open a lot of doors for other Rallye Red owners!
