Before this my dad and I installed a K&N Typhoon CAI which took about an hour and a half. Unfortunately they gave us a wrong bolt but it was easily found at our local hardware store :)










pretty easy to install otherwise, it comes with pics in the directions which helps quite a bit. at this point I love it and it sounds great especially when putting your foot to the ground

So the next big thing that I want to get are rims after i sell my gaming computer and Im torn between black and white. Ive found some awesome tarmacs that would look great and personally really unique







more pics can be found here

http://www.stanceworks.com/2013/03/f...ster-focus-st/



but after taking of the hubcaps and seeing the black steelies it has honestly gotten me on the fence between the two. I haven't really found any black rims that I really like yet but I need some suggestions, pointers, tips or really any thoughts. It would really help.

Thanks

Personally man I think if you had to go between black and white, I'd go with the white. You don't see white rims as often and on darker cars they really do POP out. Further more, every other honda civic in my area has plastidipped his/her rims black so idk maybe that's why I'm a tad biased. On the same note though, those rims are absolutely KILLER
