***official what did you do to your em2 today***

Saw this in a few other pages for other models and this forum doesn't get a lot of action and I wanna spice it up a little bit.

So here it is, what did you do to your em2 today, yesterday, recently.

A few weeks ago I started buffing out my paint to make it shiny again. Tried posting pics but my phone won't let me.

Most people in AZ tend to hate the em2 civic because of the lack of bseries and so on. Either way I still love my em2 to this day, but i'm happy I moved on now. Also not to advertise or anything, but most of the em2 action is on 7thgenhonda.com these days. Oh also new development. I'm going to be getting rid of random parts from my em2 that are laying around my garage.

I love my car, it was my 1st car and I've had it since I was 18. I'm 22 now and I've only had small problems with it. Got a new tranny and small shit. But I was thinking about picking up another one for dirt cheap and just parting it out on here. But its just really slow on this section. Ill check out the other website, but azht is my shit.

Is your ride shitty?

I had this same setup and I blew my front driver side strut in literally a few months. It was great... at 1st.

replace your mushy rubber bushings with Energy Suspension's polyurethane control arm bushings. Because polyurethane is unaffected by oil, smog, road salt, and most chemicals, it doesn't soften, compress, or distort like rubber does. So when you turn the steering wheel, take a high-speed corner, or hit some potholes, these bushings will give you the ride of your life.
