You know you're a DSMer when...

- If you have a garage full of spare engines, just in case....
- If you have a running tab at the local transmission shop...
- If your driveway has ruts in it cause your car never moves....
- If Your wife/girlfriend wishes your car never existed.
- If you think your DSM should have come with a flatbed/tow truck following you from the factory.
- You spent more fixing it than it cost
- Right before u start modifying, some damn maintenance thing breaks down (i.e. alternator, starter)
- You wake up in the morning look out the window and go "ahhh, what a nice car" OR You wake up and see your damn broken car and curse up a storm
- When you go to fix something minor you ALWAYS expect a major hassle and something else is GOING to go wrong.
- If your DSM is the most unreliable car you have ever owned
- When people say "is your car running again?" you say "kind of"
- A normal weekend involves removing your transmission 5 times.
- You work all week so you can fix your DSM on weekends.
- You have better attendance at the parts store than the employees.
- You have to add a quart of oil befor you leave to go anywhere
- You have to rebuild your trans every time you do an oil change

I can personally relate to a few of those...and yes, the parts store employees know me by name and car. I don't get the tranny jokes though and my wife/girlfriend doesn't give me too much hell.

I'm not talking shit about your work. I'm talking about the fact of doing half ass in my view. It looks odd to see a car with a front lip but nothing on the sides and rear. The headlights would look better painted. Your work was good you actually installed the lip correctly in those pics I see. I see some kids around here throwing pvc drain pipes(the square ones) onto the side of their cars for sideskirts

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

It doesn't look like a nicely customized car, it looks like a car that was once a nice car, with a bunch of stuff attached to it.

And that the muffler fell off and Backyard Joe welded it back on for $5.

NY'er, you are starting to sound more and more like the Ricer you say you are definitely NOT in ever new post you make. "Freedom of speach" I believe is what you guys call it. Why have that if you only use it selectively?

If a completely stock Civic and a Civic with a modified exhaust and CAI raced in the 1/4 mile, they would tie within a couple hundredths of each other.

You really do start to sound like a Ricer with an ego def larger than his engine. If you can keep up with me? I'm sure it doesn't take much. I'm sure I can keep up with you in a minivan.

sorry bro, i was on your side all this time but that just sounded so rice...keep up to what...? non vtec 1.7L 115hp civic? trust me ur intake and exhaust didnt make it go from 115hp to 200hp, a large exhaust could actually heart the hp by taking off the back pressure that keeps the 115hp there, but you probably never heard of that since "the louder the faster" concept is used in your case.... so your car can handle but as soon as it comes out of that corner that 20+ sec quarter mile wont keep up with no one else....

SHUT THE F#CK UP.

If you had anything under the hood, you would have immediately posted big-ass pictures of it.

Appreciate what you have, at least you didn't drop $2k on a bike...with f*cking pedals.

Why don't you post pics then if you have something new. Like What said you wouldv'e posted pictures as soon as you got out of your car from the fast and the furious extras set.
