  2. Just for giggles, my 2013 ILX

    Acura ILX of the Month Contest
    Thanks guys. Tint and centercaps are on the list but probably won't get touched anytime soon. Front splitter sitting aside, and waiting to rivet my rear diffuser together. As far as you guys should be expecting this year... Rear sway bar Tint Ssr centercaps & powdercoating the wheels Better...

    Got a long way to go, still waiting on my aero kit, custom rear diffuser, and front splitter.
  4. DIY: ILX coilover installation

    Acura ILX Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Technically it wasn't on the street, it was at Sacramento speedway for funsies. I don't really condone of street racing since it does put other lives in danger as well as mine on public roads. Unless it's like an abandoned air strip or something of that nature. Well they advertised it as a...

    Even though it's a luxury sport, it doesn't feel luxurious nor sporty. It's compact but the curves make it look bulky so the stance/VIP scene comes into play. I feel as if the 2.4L engine struggles to pull the almost 3000lb shell at times. 201hp(without my intake) and it's barely keeping up with...

    Acura ILX Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Ohh geez, I'm sort of glad that it doesn't snow like that here. Cali sucks at times, like smog every 2 years/cops dislike imports a lot more and just little things but other than that it's fine lol. I have a bunch of wheel plans, but thanks to my team being sponsored by a few reputable shops...

    Haha yeah, this is an aggressive drop and I can barely get around town with it but I love it and I really don't want to raise it back up. It's usually just those little guards that scrape and I'm probably gunna take those off when I get my wheels.
  8. DIY: ILX coilover installation

    Acura ILX Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Thank you for the kind words. The fronts don't rub at all until I have my car packed full of people, then they only rub when I turn all the way. But slightly. As for reps, I can't stand them on my own car. For a 95civic or integra, it wouldn't be as bad since I wouldn't wanna throw 3000 wheels...
  9. DIY: ILX coilover installation

    Acura ILX Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    If I go lower.. I won't be able to make it into the parking structure on campus. Huge speedbumps, narrow exits so I can't go completely sideways. I'd still like to keep it under the meaningless warranty lol. We drive on the somewhat the same roads, my bumper has battle scars everywhere. Will I...

    Acura ILX Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Here's how she sits after I picked it up a little. I don't want my vitals on the ground... Yet. That way if something messes up, acura would still cover it and not blame me for being to low haha. I'm not exactly financially stable enough to play too much with this damn car since it's still...
  11. DIY: ILX coilover installation

    Acura ILX Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    It's kind of annoying that you keep telling me that I'm not slammed or should go lower continuously over and over, I didn't know there was a requirement to being slammed. Not trying to sound like a dick, but I'd to try and ride out my warranty. After warranty is up then I'll go balls out lol...
  12. DIY: ILX coilover installation

    Acura ILX Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    No I've been to lazy to lift it back up. But I need to, can't go lower because I already scrape on the rain gutter things on the side of the road just getting into my apartment and that's going super sideways. I don't know what they are called. Lol has anyone scraped the side of their bumper on...
  13. Replacing Stock Speakers

    Acura ILX General Discussion Forum
    im thinking about replacing mine with alpine type-R's. And i wanna crank up the stock sub or figure a way to wire a new one in, seems a little weak to me.
  14. Why no automatic option on the ILX 2.4 Premium?

    Acura ILX General Discussion Forum
    maybe acura wanted to replicate the GSR, like how the GSR's were only made in 5spd and the parts were interchangeable with the 92-95 civic chassis. To me it looks like the same concept, another acura shell based off the civic. honestly, acura should start naming their cars better... their whole...

    Acura ILX Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    thank you ! haha you know, im not really sure yet. I want to go balls out and buy some real legit wheels since it doesn't feel right putting reps on a car like this. a part of me is telling me to go balls out and buy TE37SL's because i have fasfa money and a couple checks i havent cashed yet...

    Oh. I thought you were talking about the Megan ez ones. Try them out! Worst that can happen is they are a little bouncy like mine. I shall go with skunk2 for camber arms then.

    Acura ILX Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Thank you, I kinda wish my camera didn't die so I could get more pictures.. And yes exactly what ilxluv said. There is pretty much no difference between both coils other than I ordered mine with custom spring rates. When I did some reading on each coilover, I read d2's would go the lowest. But...

    Step 5 - Take the spring out. I didnt have a spring compressor on hand and the spring was already 80% hanging out, i know ill get flamed for this but it SAFELY POPPED OUT. It didnt over exaggeratedly shoot out and break my face. And now it should look like this. Step 6 - My D2 coils...
  20. DIY: ILX coilover installation

    Acura ILX Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Hey guys, i'm here to provide you guys with instructions that i never got when installing my coil-overs. I was in a hard debate between the D2 coil-overs and the ksports but in the end i ended up going with D2's because the purple looks nice. Also ran out of daylight since i received them at 6pm...
