FAVORITE MODIFICATION:
"Definitely has to be the AG wheels! I had these made for my brother right after AG announced they would no longer be making these in 16's. It's kinda cool to know that I have such a unique set of wheels. I'm sure there are plenty of black civics out there on gold mesh wheels but they aren't on AG's."
