At least we have the brains But our good ol' 6th gens are durable and reliable as any unriced up civic and 5th gen accord. Once I go lowered, I will do some monthly checks on the stuff underneath since you did brought out a good point about them getting broken when slammed or bagged or lowered or stanced.
To be honest, since you're planning on spending the next 4+ years going to college, I'd look seriously at ALL of the mechanicals on your car first. Then I'd look at a rim and tire change (maybe, due to thefts in the parking lot). But still, I'd probably keep it all 100% stock, and drive it and maintain it. At 135K, you should be able to put on another 100K without having to spend a lot of money. This savings could be put toward tools, a hydraulic floor jack, jack stands, tune up parts and or an emergency fund for an unexpected needed now repair. Just a thought.

Yeah.... my car is almost done with the repairs, and its like 99.9% stock right now. I do have plans on getting a proper project car later on, and of course, getting the proper tools, so I can brag about my car being Built, not bought. My car is near 113k miles right now.

If you say it's almost done with repairs, but then you also say it's 99.9% stock. To me that leaves a lot open on what can go bad. Things like a master cylinder, or a brake hose, or a clutch part. Remember, these parts are almost 20 years old right now. I'm not saying they'll let go tomorrow, but it can happen. That's what I was meaning on an emergency fund. And with it having 20K less miles, means it can go 20K more miles. But just remember, it's an almost 20 year old car, sure it's a Honda, but still it's almost 20 years old.

When I mean by stock, i mean the guts are OEM Honda parts that the dealer replaced due to age... the only thing that aint stock is the front door speakers and HU. Thats how I define stock in my dictionary...

Do you have a list of what's been replaced?
