Mugen RR for sure. If not readily available then the Type R.

You forgot one option which looks BEST in my honest opinion. The Type-R is the next best. Type RR is too loud for my liking. Mugen is what I have on my car and simply love the way it looks. Some pics attached

06 mugen is too common and actually does not go very well with the 09 bumper. yes, I will be changing the rim as well - choice between white or polished metal.. and preferably in 17" (but only after I have installed a body kit)

The mugen kit on your car looks very very hot, no doubt! .. But I wanted to try something new. I already have the actual Type R original kits with my dealer. So, if I can't get hold of the RR kit, would possibly fall back to Type R. BTW, I now remembered that I had seen your car (or a similar car) in Safdarjung Enclave 3-4 months back.. I was driving a SX4 then...

As far as my vote goes, keep it the way it is. I second Eddy on the classy part.
hmm.. that was my intention when I bought it! (and I actually believed that I would be changing my car within 2-3 years!). BUT I have fallen in love with the car - the handling is superb, the hydraulic steering feels an absolutely delight in tight city traffic to twist and turn to precision.. and the best - the sudden surge in power when revved.. very very addictive.. so I don't think I will ever be able to drive/own (and with sensible ownership!) another car within that segment unless I plan to upgrade to a German beauty above 20+.

So, I am pretty much sure that even if I buy another (family) car, I would keep this car for years to come, merely for the driving pleasure.. and hence, this is why I have decided to go for a nice body kit. Moreover, I have not bottom out the car yet. Add to this, most of the roads in Delhi/NCR are absolutely a driver's delight. So, the GC should not be an issue, I guess!

For now, I am also hooked to the Mugen RR kits. I will be showing up these kits to my local accessory guy to check if he can source it..

The RR in white!

Dude please do let me know where you source your kit from. I also own a white civic and need a kit and spoiler desperately. After seeing the last pic am hooked to the front black carbon grill with red badges. Any idea how much this would cost? How much is the Mugen RR kit?

Mugen RR is milano red (Color Code: R-81). The same color was also on offer in 7th Gen Civic. However do note that no aftermarket paint work will be match the real Mugen RR red, slight difference will always be there (be it color match or paint quality). Forget the color code and ask the paint guy to show you different shades of red. I am sure you will find one for your taste.

Photoshop may help you out too!

I think the real mugen RR red is Milano red. I confirmed it at
DuPont Refinish - Colour Formulations - Collision Repair - Car Paint

The above link is a very much useful hand guide.
