Color matched my sidemarkers and area behind rear badge. I also painted my badges transparent black so you can still see a little chrome show through. I'm pretty happy with it overall. I will be doing the TDI badge transparent black as well. As well as color matching some front license plate hole covers!

Managed this on my morning drive (don't bother with the 1/4 time, I was already slowing by then anyway so it isn't accurate):



Since she's completely stock (other than minor appearance changes) I thought it was pretty decent...

I want my .:R32 back... But hey; I'm saving more than $250 a month all costs included by trading it in on the TDI...

I have 15k on mine but once I get the Civic rolling (needs a headliner and fix the interior bits) the TDI mileage accumulation will slow down drastically.

Put this on. Very happy with the results, though I've only taken it for a few mile test drive.

Are you tuned? It may cause issues later. I've heard.

Yes, went stage 1 on Thursday. NGP Racing didn't have the intake in stock, so they shipped it to me for free. Didn't get a CEL, and I'm not too worried about anything further down the road; like anything else, good sense and proper maintenance will hopefully suffice

I like the sound...I don't feel like I'm obnoxious leaving my townhouse neighborhood, but it's a nice deep rumble, and you can really hear the turbo spooling.

Regarding power increase: as others have noted, there's an immediate difference in throttle response. The car feels quicker as a result, even if it's just that reduced lag. I'm probably crazy, but I feel like I'm noticing the difference between having this and not more than I noticed the tune.

I didn't work today, but have my normal 38 miles of open highway commute tomorrow, so I'll update with further impressions and mileage (though I'm a little lead-footed right now, as I'm sure you understand)

First commute after the intake installation. Average mileage 46.1 on the mfd, with some spirited driving, though not too much. I know that the mfd is wrong, but it's still a good tool for comparison; I was hitting 45-47 before tuning, so doesn't look like it's going to hurt things any
