Default Hot hatch build

Thought I would start a build thread of my 2016 turbo hatchback.



Here she is at the dealership after our test drive.

Good. Welcome aboard
Time to mod
Wheels and tires make any car better. If you want a tighter ride (but more suspension jounce), put lowering springs on it.
A Honda Civic front lip
An exhaust (or like me a muffler & tip)
Tint
Tune.... depends on what you're looking for.

Lots of options, lots of fun.

Just a few things..
1. Don't drive hard the 1st 10 minutes
2. Let car idle drop to 1K before taking off. When cold, idle will be about 1.5k when starting.
3: Use synthetic oil
4: If driving TOO spirited, let car idle for about 20-30 seconds before shutting off
5: Take your vitamins
6: Stay in school
7: Don't do drugs (beer don't count)


5-7 optional
