Thanks! I can't wait till it's all color matched.... The OEM rear lip I got from Bilal is amazing. Perfect fit. Bayson R rear lips always gave me trouble. Always had gaps and stuff. Wish I could find some OEM sides haha

$185 and yeah man it's super expensive for what it is. It's real carbon fiber I think that's why it's so expensive. And honestly it's so worth it. It looks amazing compared to all the other ****ty eBay ones. Those ones are so big and don't look nice at all imo. This is the only one the looks nice and subtle. Sadly they don't make a regular plastic black one to cut the cost.

Re: Derek's 2002 Coupe EX (5MT)

Thanks Jerry!

I dropped the car 1 inch. Rubbed like crazy so I raised it 0.25 inches. Still rubbed so I did a ghetto fender roll. Messed up the paint behind the quarter panel lol.... But it's not visible. This was just a temporary fix. Fender is still not flat but gives barley enough clearance. Still rubs a little but I will get it professionally rolled soon when I have money. Fender rolling use to be 100 bucks a few years ago but now it's like 200 smh

I want to wrap the car candy red and the shop told me it would be 2500 starting but depends on what color of red I choose so could go up or down a bit I guess. Do you guys think that's a reasonable price or is that too much?

Re: Derek's 2002 Coupe EX (5MT)

Seems alright for a full wrap. If you compare it to the price it would be to wrap it yourself it's gonna be higher but at least you don't have to do it yourself.

Re: Derek's 2002 Coupe EX (5MT)

Bought new seats from the junk yard for hella cheap! Old seats were so ripped up. The passenger is near perfect. Only one super tiny tear. Driver side has a rip but not big. Way better than what I had before so I can't complain haha eventually I will get them reupholstered. Shouldn't be too expensive to fix that small part

Re: Derek's 2002 Coupe EX (5MT)

Gotta love that. My junkyard sells seats for $50, was tempted quite a few times back during my CL-S seat search.

$2500 seems a little steep for me for a wrap job, but I really have nothing to base that on so nevermind.

Re: Derek's 2002 Coupe EX (5MT)

Is it just me or is it impossible to find a driver's seat without a ripped bolster. Literally everyone I found had a crater in it. All things considered mine werent horrendous but at least I have them . Thinking about getting then reupholstered. They seem to be super expensive online. It's hard to see the damage but the tan cloth interior is bleh.

yeah pretty much... that area has the most wear cuz when you get out of there car thats where your body puts pressure. my drivers side butt area was good but the side near the door is ripped but very small so i got kind of lucky that it wasn't terrible. I plan on bringing it to a place to get it reupholstered. It shouldnt cost too much for the small area. You should find some decent seats that aren't too messed up so it will be cheaper to fix. Shouldn't be to hard to find. Those used acura honda places or pick and pull should have some
