#61 of 513 Amplifier Hook up
Aug 13, 2003 (9:33 am)
I want to install an amplifier to my 1998 Honda
Civic EX stereo. Where is the best way of routing the power cable from the battery to the
trunk. I can't seem to find a good spot to drill on the firewall to route the cable. Please help.
#62 of 513 MOPARBAD - ARMREST ?
Sep 21, 2003 (7:26 am)
I noticed your old post, requesting info on a center armrest. I too have a 2002 Si & am hunting for a center armrest. Have you had any luck in your search. OR anyone else find an armrest for the Si?? I'd prefer one that folded up & out of the way when not being used.

I have posted info on armrests, but the hosts keep deleting it siting that no commmercial info should be posted here. I am just passing along the information. Also check out a website solely deicated to the new Si. Once again no links allowed, but our body code is EP and it is a hatch, hence -- ephatch.
There are two types of arm rests out there. One that mounts to the center console and the other that mounts to the seat mounting bolts.

#65 of 513 2003 civic and viper 850 XV

Hi I recently had the Viper 850 XV alarm installed on my 2003 civic, it came with keyless entry but I was told since I don't have power doors they could not install the keyless entry. Does anyone know of a cheap way to get power doors installed. Thanks.
#66 of 513 cheapest vs efficient
Oct 28, 2003 (5:31 am)
I think the most efficient way to add power door locks is to trade your DX for LX. With LX you not only get the power door locks but power windows and A/C for a $1000-$2000 on top of the DX.
Check out http://www.jcwhitney.com They have aftermarket door locks. It may be a pain to install them. But it is worth a try.
Another venue is to find a junked LX or EX and swap the doors intact (you will get power windows on top of power locks) Theoretically you can remove the regulators from the junked LX or EX and install in the DX. But the complexity may be beyond the scope of average DIY. As far as I know, Hondas come pre-wired for everything, so theoretically the wires for the power door locks and windows are in the doors. Realisticly, I don't know.

Does anyone know where I can find a tan colored front bra for my 03 civic sedan. Honda sells a black one and I havent been able to find one on the net. Thanks for the help, Bob

I hail from Singapore and stumbled upon this website. Excellent source of information, I should say!
Any one out there driving this vehicle? In Singapore, the 1999-2000 Civics are known as EXi, VTi and SiR. The SiR is the most powerful, with 170 horses for manual and 155 horses for auto versions. The former two are 1.5L while SiR is 1.6L.
I drive an auto Civic SiR and am enjoying every minute of it!

I own a 1993 Civic Milano Red and i recently decided to get rid of my econobox 1.6L sohc d16z6 motor in favor of a nice beefy dohc b18c1 (acura gsr). anyways just wanted to say that if anyone is in the market to get a swap for their honda i definately support the idea. its is much cheaper to buy yourself a 5th gen civic and buy a motor (around 7500 all done) then go spending 18k on a new Si which looks like a mini-van and is slower than the older Si's (99-00 all the way!) however i do like the styling of the 2004 Ep3-R but now the regular old boring ep3 that we get here in the states. oh and the DC5/R kills the new Si anyways in styling and speed so if u want a waranty with your honda get an integra...ooops sorry rsx. heh
#70 of 513 replaced stock springs
Dec 08, 2003 (2:07 pm)
I was a little dissappointed by the soft suspension on the 2003 Civic. I just purchased a set of Eibach proline springs for my 2003 Civic EX and it improves the handling of a car by a lot without sacrificing the ride quality. On top of that it improves the appearance of the car by lowering it 1.5 inches and getting rid of that nasty wheel gap that makes it look like you have a truck suspension on your car. Anyone looking for an inexpensive improvement to their vehicle, this is the way to go! The handling and response just feels so much more secure and you can hug the corners a lot better without the excessive body roll (especially where I drive the speed limit in downtown detroit on freeways are only 55, however the speed limit the people make it are a good 70-75 with plenty of 50-55 mph curves!). Anyhow the modification cost me just over $300 installed with alignment.
