    Due to budget constraints, I regret not having modified my old ride, a 1999 SX8 Honda City 1.5EXi. I was still a college student then. I'm taking out my frustrations on my current ride, a second-hand twin-spark Jazz 1.3S.

    Bits and baubles installed so far:
    May 2007: Pioneer DEH-P7950UB USB/iPod-capable 1-DIN head unit. Replaced a stock Kenwood HU that refused to play CDs.
    December 2007: Stebel Magnum twintone horns and a Momo Fighter steering wheel. Replaced a wimpy shorted stock horn and a sticking horn button on the stock steering wheel.
    April 2008: Rota Circuit 10 wheels shod with 205/45ZR16 Bridgestone Potenza S-02 rubber. Replaced stock 14-inchers with balding rubber.

    I plan to keep this car for a long time, and already I've got a lot of other modifications planned for it.

    Thanks for viewing guys

    Thanks for sharing pics of your ride.

    Are you installing a third brake light? I am planning to install one soon, diy.

    CVT,
    Yeah, that might be in the pipeline.

    Actually if I had more skill with DIY installs, I'd love to install a couple of cargo area lamps in the corners of my car's rear hatch glass. Once the hatch is open, they should illuminate the cargo hold.

    The GE Mugen Fit F154SC concept (based on the upcoming Fit/Jazz) from the 2008 Tokyo Auto Salon had these, and they're a really practical idea.

    Correct! Glad to see someone caught the reference.

    Like the MSN-00100 Hyaku Shiki from 1985's "Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam," I have plans to repaint this car in a deep shade of gold. That'll come in due time, though...

    I got further inspiration from a friend from Honda Club Phils. who repainted his EG Civic "Top Secret gold." It turned out really nicely.

    Many thanks bros!

    Don't worry; despite my numerous plans for it, I'll keep the car clean and tasteful. I'm not into gaudy and loud things.
