    Look at you with your fancy power seats. I wish the Si had them. :(

    You are off to a good start with your "mods."

    Welcome.

    Winter tire/rim package arrived on time! Here in NJ it's either really hot (over 100 degrees) or really cold (under-10).

    These are Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 and 16" rims

    Just ordered my interior LED kit and license plate LED bulb from iJDMToy. I ordered it on the 23rd of March (currently March 29). USPS said it was supposed to arrive yesterday so I"m bummed out, I really wanted to have it installed for the weekend. Hopefully tomorrow and I will take pics and upload them!

    Finally! What I have in the mail! interior LED lights from iJDMtoy. These lights are BRIGHT. I feel like it's almost a stadium in the interior. Really bright.

    Installations was super easy however I had some trouble getting the front two to stay put and match the one next to it. Finally got it good though.

    License plate lights are AWESOME! I really did NOT want projected ones where you can see the cut off line, I didn't want to see blue or dim lights. I didn't want to see SUPER bright lights either. I'm SUPER glad I got this as the 10 dollar add on. It is just bright enough.

    A bit bummed I didn't get one for my trunk as that is in MAJOR need of lighting upgrade.

    Anyway here are some pics. BTW pics do not do it justice.

    Looks great! LEDs are an awesome upgrade! You should looks into some for your reverse lights too! I did mine and I love them! Do you have any other plans for your car?

    Thanks! Trunk LED I will look into reverse like. I will do research and make sure it doesn't effect the rear view camera view.

    OEM interior LED door sill.

    That's about it. I we planning on upgrading the speakers/amp but not a high priority at the moment. I guess I'm 90% done with my planned mods.

    I replaced all my bulbs and have not had any issues with the exception of the turn signals. All I needed to do was add resistors so they don't hyper flash. Didn't need resistors for any other bulbs including brake or reverse lights. Also haven't had any issues with my rear view camera after replacing bulbs.

    Here are some pics I took today after a nice wash! hope you like.

    My next future mods will be:
    OEM Honda illuminated door sill
    9005 LED light kid from Xenondepot. I'm afraid because these will work as DRL that they will not be visible in the daytime because of low power.
    LED fog lights. Looking for yellow ones without a fan.

    I think at this point my mods will end.

    Anyone have LED lighting for DRL that serve as High beam AND DRL that can provide some feedback? I saw nice LED bulbs but they don't serve as High Beams and although i use them 99% less now that I have LED headlight kit, i still want to have them available when needed.

    Here are some pictures of the lighting of the interior and exterior.

    The LED interior lights I purchased from iJDMToy is pretty bright. These picture are pretty spot on. The back door appear darker because I have 30% tints on.

    In the last picture you can see my LED headlight unit I purchased from XenonDepot. My driveway has uneven spots so where I parked, the front of the car is higher then the rear, hence why the lighting is a bit higher.

    No fogs lights on in these pictures

    In these pictures I turned on my stock halogen Fog lights and stood in the middle of the car to see the lighting color. Then I have one with the door open showing the interior LED with the LED headlight kit with no fog lights. The last pictures I show the license plate LED.

    I feel like I want to purchase the PIAA yellow Ion halogen bulbs for my fogs. I saw a 9th gen driving with some SICK yellow fogs with what appeared HID headlights. They looked SICK. However now seeing how yellow it looked, i'm thinking perhaps it was overlays.

    These are the ones I plan on purchasing. what do you think?

    I saw a SICK 8th gen civic with LED DRL on the highway today, it was behind me and the lights were perfectly visible. I wanted to ask if they also served as high beams. I saw no flickering.

    So one of those two will be my next mod.

    Any feedback on any of those lights?

    Wow! And I save about $60. Just google searched some images and they look real good. I will research reviews on them. Hope they last at least 2 years.

    As good as they look, I guess PIAA is higher cost because of name brand? I will most likely go for these within the next days!

    New Mod!

    Nokya Hyper Yellow Pro Halogen Headlights Bulb 55w H11.

    These bulbs are awesome! Followed the advise and i'm 100% happy with the choice. Honestly the pictures taken from my iPhone do NOT do it justing. It looks way better in person.

    Looking forward to using it when it rains and foggy out. This color is bright solid yellow. Here are some pics:
