    Well I picked up a daily to keep my 9th away from snow/salt/hail this winter. Anyone else do the same?

    Nice find. It'll be great on gas and cheap to fit winter tires on it.

    I'd love to find a good cheap one just as a project car to build for track days. Nice find and good luck keeping it stock for long!

    I see nothing but potential in there.

    Salt and snow away from the 9th is my goal, some enjoyment is just a bonus

    nice find. should be easy to clean up and use for a daily.

    having a 6th gen myself i recommend you check the rear trailing arm bushings to see if they are torn.

    Agreed, rear disc swap is going to happen at the same time bushing are replaced

    It seems like I'm getting a lot of interest, do we want a dd build thread?

    That would be cool, I've always wanted a hatch like the one you got. Things just never lined up. Could be helpful for others that own one as well.

    Isn't a civic supposed to be a daily driver for someone who has a sports car?

    Haha. I've never heard of anyone with a Civic buying a daily. Sheesh, I had a hard enough time trying to comprehend the fact that some Evo/STI owners stored their cars during the winter.
