The Lancer was a car modifier's canvas. Now it seems Civic is the canvas.

So many ways to modify a civic.

Not really, unfortunately there are many more interesting Civic kits in international market, but what we see here are only two dumb versions.

Well, If you're so inclined you can always get a kit of your choice custom made. Than you won't be so "tired" . I've seen TONS of different alloys on Civics of every color, esp those with an upsize.
Most people either do not have the information, the resources or the money and hence go for whatever is available off the shelf. If you look, there are always options

So where can I get a custom made spoiler done for Civic?

I don't like any of the existing ones. But I have something of my own in my mind.
I even liked the one they used on Si sedan concept car, but unfortunately no one makes it... :(

Civic SI Coupe spoiler is also good, but wont fit the sedan!

The car looks fine, needs larger wheels atleast 18inch, low pro tyres and needs to be lowered by an inch.

Yeah, if you get larger wheels then that will add to the height, and if you lower it an inch that will bring it back down, you have to be a little careful while driving a lowered car anywhere in the world.

With 18" rims, you will hardly have any rubber. That'll be absolutely horrendous for Indian roads, esp. with the stock suspension. The Civic's long wheelbase is already an issue with people in a lot of cities in India. If you lower it further, it's gonna bottom out everywhere

what if you used 245/40/18 in the front and 255/35/18 in the back won't be too bad right?
