What's next for my civic?

So i was sitting and counting a few days ago how much i make my expenses and how much i can save up for my car... After i get my tints done... i dunno what i should do. I don't really want performance or anything... So i figured in about 3-4 months i'll have a little over 300 and if i start pulling in more money on the other way i make money (repairs for people) then i can make over that. So any advice on what i should do? something fun... maybe rims..any advice?

If you don't want performance, go with the rims. They make a huge difference in how much better your car will look. I just find it annoying when people put on rims + low profile tires and the car is sitting inches above the tires. If you add rims, lower it also, unless the tires are already close to the wheel well, it looks way better like that.

I'm guessing those are around 13" tires...so you could probably step up to 15"...rims are a nice idea for what to do if you don't want performance...

IMO, I would recommend something simple, not the 100 spoke-type...something similar to this:


Of course not necessarilly (sp?) from Porsche, but you can get the idea...

I know, I know. Spend your money on a full page ad in Rice-O-Rific magazine explaining why people can't use the correct word... WHEELS. If you only buy the rims, how are you going to attach them to your car?

I think dark wheels would look best on a black Civic.

How about retrimming the interior?
