What up HT? Long time reader/visitor.

I have a 2010 EX-l Sedan and I plan on going VIP. I know, I know, it's not everyone's cup o' tea, but I love the aggressive look. I had a 97 Civic EJ8 coupe that was HellaFlush, but now it's time for an upgrade. I have has my 8G for a few years now, but it was mainly my wife's car. I have now taken over and I plan on puttin together a slow build. I just had a baby, so Mr. Back Burner has put me in a impatient state, but I love my daughter and I am ok with a slow build.

Here my plans, tell me what you guys think...


-Function & Form Type 1s or Type 2s
-Platinum VIP Air Cup Kit with Eibach Shortened CO Springs
-Camber Kits, I am still doing some research on them. I may not need them, but depends on how slammed I am and how aggressive of a wheel and tire combo I get. Any feedback or suggestions would be awesome.

Wheels & Tires:
-I want to go pretty aggressive
-19x10 (low offset -0 to -20) front & rear
-225/35/19 possibly GoodYears, but depends on what I can find

Body Work:
-Roll Fenders. I want to setup my wheel and tire combo to reduce the chance of having to pull.
-I am in search of the perfect lip kit. This is where you guys really come in to help. I don’t care for the Mugen set. I’m not a big fan of the look. I want something clean.
-2012 V6 front bumper with fog lights
-2012 V6 rear bumper for Dual Exhaust
-Trunk Lid Spoiler

I won’t be doing that many mods for performance, just the basics.
-Custom Injen Matte Black CAI from a buddy of mine at the R&D Dept at Injen
-Functional Dual Exhaust (Custom)

-Neck Pads
-Curtains ( I am not quite sure which brand I will be going with for the interior items, JP is too common for me, but we’ll see.)
-Wood Grain accent pieces
-Wood Grain Steering wheel (Nardi, Personel, MOMO or NRG) Most likely Nardi. My buddy has one for cheap I might pick up off of him.
-HUB & Quick Release
-Crosstour Leather Shift Knob

Tell me what you guys think… Good or bad, all opinions are welcome. Thank you guys for taking the time to read.

Thanks guys for all the info. I feel welcomed. I love the look of the quilt panels on the seats, but that might be one of the last things I'd do with the car. I'm sticking to the basics for now to get my platform started. I've had a great experience with F&F type 1s & Type 2s. Sorry guys no type-os here. I really do like the ride and comfort of the F&Fs. The only real reason I'd consider the Type 1s is if I convert the coils to a higher rate Eibach springs. We'll see though. Any good pics of some VIP 8th Gen sedans would be cool. I know there aren't that many in the states. I know they're very common in Thailand (Thigh-land) per Alan (leader of the wolf pack) I just renewed my membership not too long ago. :lmao:

Thanks "namegoeshere". Everyone has different opinions of course. I can respect that. Doom, have you ever rocked F&F? I'm just curious. I have driven on Type 1s for over a year with no prob on my old EK. I understand I haven't used them on an accord, but I have been a passenger of an A4 that was rollin on Type2s and it drove smooth. Every CO does have a stiffer ride than stock, but these have the perfect combo of both smooth and stiff. That was at its lowest setting for daily driving. I loved the near OEM feel the Type1s offered. I even sold them to a buddy of mine who tracks his EK. He's had no complaints. The reason I switched to Type2s on my EK was because I weigh almost 300 pounds and the Type1 spring rate wasn't enough for when I was slammed. I figured, $700 for some Type2s direct from F&F in pomona, I jumped all over it, plus my buddy wanted to buy some Type1s. It was a win win. Where I'm getting at is that I stick to what I know and I know F&F makes a damn good coilover.

As far as my setup not being cheap, I understand that. My EK was very spoiled for being, well, a Civic Coupe. Don't get me wrong, I loved that thing to death, but now its time to move up and spread my wings. She rocked more of the top end products. No Ebay crap ever touches my car except if it's a good deal on OEM parts. Not being cheap is the reason it will be a slow build.

Thanks again for the feedback guys. Keep it coming.

Hey Doom. Is that your actual accord as your avatar? That thing looks fresh from as much as I can see. Got any full pics? And how are those BC coilovers workin for you? Aren't those made by the guys at CCW? I'm waiting to see how their cup kits come out.
