perhaps you can google aftermarket acura csx images, and see what style you like and go from there

Shaved door handles? You might well just get some chrome rims and chrome fender trim to go along with it. Don't send your car back to the 90's.

You can also check out k-playground for some replica JDM items. I'm not sure of the quality but they seem to be ok.

I checked out Kplayground and another place A&J Racing, they're looking pretty good, I have a good idea of what I'm going to do to it.

Thanks for all the help guys.

What seats does that guy have? They don't look like Type-S/SI seats

no idea, but he got the kit from A&J Racing, I'm not a fan of the honda badge on it, but, he's got some nice mods on it. I emailed him, nice guy, not sure if he's on here or not.

How come shortram wouldnt be a good idea? I have an 07 CSX and I was considering putting in a takeda shortram intake.

(not adverstising, I just want to show people what I was considering and whether it's a good idea or not.)
Just got my CSX recently too, any one have suggestions and tips on what to do besides wheels and coilovers. I've been trying to look for a spoiler/lip.

As a general rule, there is no performance benefits to be had from cone filters unless substantial effort has been made to ensure that fresh, cold air is drawn in and the filter itself is well insulated from the engine bay.

You got a CSX - Type S ? In that case, the short ram will be fine. Any intakes meant for a Si won't work on a base CSX, it will give you a check engine light.

actually my CSX got backed into by a flat deck truck a couple of weeks ago. after I'd done $4k worth of suspension work, new rims, tires and an HID system. literally. the day after. I picked the car up at 5, drove it the long way, parked, then went to work, friend at work came out and grabbed me and said.. dude.. your car. go outside. cops are there and the guy in the truck was looking at me like he thought I was gonna murder him. which I was. but, thats beside the point. Anyways, thanks guys for the ideas, there's a cheap '08 CSX S in ontario I'm looking at picking up once ICBC cuts me a cheque.

Dude sorry to hear... but on the bright side, you'll get a better car out of it.

Try to find a CSX-S or a Civic SI sedan and you'll be a pretty happy guy. Completely different car from the base models, especially the Civic.

Or, you could go completely different and pick up a Mazdaspeed 3. Still 4 doors and a pretty impressive amount of power. Plus modding a turbo car will get you way more power than a NA car, no comparison.
