#42 of 513 bjk2001 / keyless remote & 96 civic lx

Thanks for the info on the seat covers. I will look there. BTW do they make seat covers for the rear seating as well? I don't know if the 96 Civic actually has a key less entry already installed and perhaps I just didn't receive the remote. Does anyone out there know if the 96 Civic LX comes with the key less remote system already installed?

Costco's Crosscountry (waterproof) front seat cover is less than $19.00 for a pair, I don't think they make any for rear seats.
Typical Civic LX doesn't come with Keyless entry, Keyless entry is standrad on EX.

Thanks, I'll look at Costco and let you know what I find. The car is in really good mechanical condition but lacked care on the interior. I have to use the key to lock the doors. Purchased the car for my son and had the mechanics do a thorough going over before/after purchase. Seems very sound but needs a major detailing and perhaps interior seat covers etc.
#45 of 513 security vs keyless entry

I just purchased a 2003 Civic EX with side air bags and no other options. The dealer offered me the "security" system for $500. Hahaha! I have the keyless entry, but what is the security system? Should I even think about a aftermarket alarm, like the Viper? Thanks.

You could get the security system module from http://www.handaaccessories.com/ for $120 and install it yourself. Pretty straightforward.

I saw the site, but I still don't understand the advantage of having one, the other or both. I would like to hear the justification of $120+. Is it just a noisemaker? If so I'll skip it.

I love the keyless entry. Very convenient. Thought it was a gew-gaw, until it came on a car I bought and I started using it.

Well, it's an alarm, integrated with keyless entry system. I would say it's more than a noisemaker.
#50 of 513 Tire upgrades ??

Would like to upgrade for better wet traction.
Selection for 195/60/15 v-rated is very limited.
Looks like 205/55/15 is the choice.
What have you changed to?

Has anyone replaced the rear shocks on their Civic to improve damping control. I am getting tired of my 02's floaty jumpy rear ride. Are there any aftermarket adjustable shocks that will work in conjuction with the perfectly acceptable front stock struts? Cheers
