are you the type of person to modify every vehicle you own? do you like to keep it just like how it rolled off the factory floor? whichever side of the coin youre own post up here and tell us why.

being someone that religiously put aftermarket wheels on any car I get my hands on weeks after owning it you can bet I will be throwing on some nice wheels on the ILX as my first mod. after wheels it will be subs, amp, and maybe a better headunit if the OEM one doesn't have RCA ports for the AMP.

I would wait until the warranty from the dealership expires. Then I would start modifying it. That way I wont risk losing my warranty over something so small.

Same here. Wouldn't want to risk eating a costly repair, because they didn't like some I put on the car.

I like OEM upgrades only. I went HFP on on my Civic Si sedan, OEM body kit on my wife's RSX. I've done nothing to our S2000, and probably never will.

2004 Eternal Blue Acura RSX 5-speed
2007 Fiji Blue Civic Si Sedan

2008 Rio Yellow S2000

Thats a nice collection of Hondas at home. Which ones faster. Your rsx or her 8th gen lol.
The s2k is the fastest, followed by the flashpro'ed Civic Si, and then the base RSX. She and I love driving all of them. She gets the s2k on her weekdays off. I use it most summer days to go to work. I use the Si as the "winter beater" :)

I have a friend that drives a Laguna Blue s2k in the summer and a Fiji Blue Si in the winter. We all know that the yellow s2ks are the fastest. :)

For anyone that's worried about losing their warranty. As long as the part you installed doesn't have anything to do with what ever part would need warranty repair or replacement the dealership is legally binded to honor your warranty. So for example you install a new exhaust and there's a problem with the ignition system, they're still supposed to cover the warranty. Even if its actually related to the problem they still have to prove that the part you installed is related to what caused the problem.

wheels will always be a first mod, maybe coils but that could be risky and possible void the warranty
