Question type: Car Customization

I'm new to this and i don't know what i should do...it's completely stock. I would
like to know what parts of a body kit i should get and from where that isn't too
expensive but is still sweet looking. Also, performance wise i'd appreciate it if
someone could tell me what i should get in order to boost my performance to
maximum performance...please list your cheapest ideas first followed by more
expensive..also..i've just been wondering this for awhile..what exactly is a "ricer"?
thanks
ALSO: what tires should i buy because mine are almost worn out and am in major
need of new ones before
winter..not necessarily for winter but just new ones...thanks! and where can i find
good hubcap replacements for
my car? i am not looking to spend the money for alloy wheels since i'll be
spending most of my money on the
performance and body kits..thanks!

A body kit, clear headlights/ taillights, graphics and a giant spoiler is rice If you want want performance, but don't want to spend too much money, then just get an intake, headers, and a cat-back exhaust. If you are not going to buy rims, then I just suggest getting regular tires, hopefully you won't waste money on a body kit an then you can buy some rims, look into the brand XXR for rims, they are pretty cheap and look nice, you can find sets of these new on EBay. Look on EBay for good deals on used parts or buy knock off ones if you like, but don't buy a turbo kit from eBay unless it's brand name. Join the forum Honda-tech.com for even better advice.
