I posted some info in the "newbies" sub, but figured I would start a journal, as the mods and the progression of this car begins. 2017 Sonic Grey Pearl Sport Touring Honda Civic Hatchback with "Honda Sensing" package. Shout out to all the staff and management at Birchwood Honda West that helped the whole process along, through the months of waiting. The color is pretty rare, and I'm told the color/trim/manual trans makes it an even more rare combo. Color is only available on the S/T trim level, and only Canada offers the S/T trim with a 6 speed manual, everywhere else the S/T is a CVT.

Heres some photos from last week when i picked her up, and then a few from today, after her first real wash, after a few small modifications and additions to the car were made.





























Any and all comments and questions are welcome, and I look forward to talking to and seeing you guys around!

    Not a huge fan of how these look but I am interested in seeing what you do with it! I do like the color, it's pretty interesting.

      How does the engine feel compared to your SI?

      Really love the color though! I'm definitely a huge fan of the interior of the new Civics, they make my 2012 look even worse :lol:

        Power and torque is there earlier, but the redline is a bit lower. The transmission is extremely smooth and the car feels light and very connected. I'm actually surprised at how much more "premium" the entire experience feels.

                That looks really fun. I haven't been to one yet, perhaps I'll come and see what it's about!

                It's the stock shifter setup, but I have a TWM Abrams M16 on there, which is countersunk, so it sits really low. The stock setup feels very similar to the previous Si, very rounded, still tight, with a little bit of play. Very connected. With the Abrams knob, it shifts almost effortlessly.

                Ha ha ha looking at FlashPro or KTuned first to see what I can do with the stock turbo.
