Let the thread know which exhaust component you will install.

Lowering Springs Only (drop)
Let the thread know which ones you prefer

Coilovers
Let the thread know which ones you prefer.

External Lighting
Includes Fogs/HID/AMP'd Etc. Just post why you voted for the external lighting.

Internal Lighting
Includes LED and other internal non-OEM upgrades.

OEM Upgrades
Includeds all OEM availabilites to include lighted door seals, spoilers, Diffusers, Arm Rest etc.

Tires/Rims
Let the thread know which rims and tires you intend to upgrade to. Include Offset and if you have them, Pics.

Aero Stuff
3rd party body kits that just make it look better. Front/side and rear. Let the thread know which one(s) you intend on bolting on.

Tint
Let the thread know what type of tint you have or intend on applying.

This one is multiple choice. Lets see how it works.

first thing i did was Tint (35% sides, 20% rear).

next will be LED interior lights.

and eventually dropping 1" with Eibach pro kit springs.
followed by 17" rims and tires (not until Spring of 2012 though). will keep stock 16" rims for winter tires.

I have a plan, but not going to be in this order:

Intake - HKS
Exhaust - Noblesse Center Exit Exhaust
Aero - Mugen Kit (front spoiler, Side Skirt, Rear spoiler), Noblesse Rear Diffuser
Tint - 20% on Rear and Rear Sides
External Lighting - EU Headlight with DRL LEDs
Suspension - The Mugen 5-Way Adjustable Suspension Kit
Wheels - Axis Wheels S5 F Gunmetal
Brakes - StopTech’s Big Brake Kit

That's all i can think of for right now. I'm sure I'm missing a few more that I want to do.

Exhaust: When time comes I will be getting the HKS
External: Plan on converting my fog lights to HID and also try to rear illuminated emblem
OEM: Going for the illuminated door sills and the drop in after market arm rest
Rims: Still a toss up what rims I will get since I dont plan to make a purchase for 6 months+
Tint: Going for 35% in front and 20% in back
Internal: Waiting for my LED bulbs to come in for all the interior lightings and also drilled holes in the filters for the blue LEDs under the dash.

I did 35% Huber tint the 3rd day I owned the car.. and got wheel / tires the same day (MB Weapons 17" Bronze 45 Offset / Continental Extreme Contact DWS 225/45).

have the Compass Mirror, Armrest, cargo tray, floor mats, and Wet Okole seatcovers (Blue). Also the illuminated sills. Oh.. new shift knob also

Did interior lights next... then LED license, backup lights next.. then fogs (silverstars)

Was going to do the Eibach springs next.. have put off further mods for while.....

Exhaust- turbo-kits.com
Intake- turbo-kits.com
Exterior- only did the rear 20% with a 5% strip in the small hatch window.
Ordered the Jdm visors.
Spring- waiting on arrival of the swift springs.
Wheels- gram light 57maximum pending custom powder coating and probably grab some continental Extremecontact DW's or Azenis 615-k idk yet.

Mods on the list and soon to come:
JDP lip, grill and spoiler
Spoon duracon shift knob
Debating on seats but leaning towards the bride zeta 3 or sparco r100.


And of course turbocharging it which I already picked up a t25 turbo from a friend for cheap, I'll have that sitting around till the time comes to boost.

Wheels: Gram Lights 57Ultimate SC 17x7". Already bought.
Suspension: KW coilovers if they make a kit.
Aero: Revozport cf hood, Noblesse rear diffuser, HKS Kensai cf corner bits and grille, oem visors
Exhaust: Noblesse

Other then that I may paint the roof center section black to match the rear hatch trim and maybe some more tint. Eventually I want to either super charge or turbo charge the car as well.

Ordered: OEM Armrest.
Planned: HKS Silent Power; Intake Pipe with after-purchase thermal coating; aftermarket air-filter / velocity stack; Mobil 1 Super-Syn 0W-20 synthetic motor oil (Mobil does not offer their 15,000 mile full-synthetic oil at this time); Bridgestone RE050A Pole Position 225/50 R16 summer tires on the OEM 16" wheels (I love the Honda 16" X 6" wide OEM wheels). Only after tire upgrade will I risk my CR-Z investment and turn off 'vehicle stability assist' (the driver's manual says that the VSA returns after every engine 'cold' start), the OEM Bridgestone 'Eco's are definitely not performance tires. Finally, I removed the dealer installed body colored vinyl wheel well / door edge trim and pin-stripes with a hair-dryer and 'goo-be-gone (much cleaner look now).

Intake
HKS RSK (if it stink'n stops raining

Exhaust
Noblesse center exit exhaust (again... stupid rain)

Coilovers
Cusco Zero One, but didn't realize the alternative spring rates only work on the Zero Two/Three. Probably should have at least gone with HKS or Cusco Zero two with electronic damping. Rear damping adjustment for Cusco zero one is worthless.

External Lighting
Changed fogs to halogen yellow and yellow tint
changed license plate lights to ultra white LED

Internal Lighting
LED Red interior rears, and ultra white map and door lights.

OEM Upgrades
Considering lighted door sill (hoping someone will hack it red so I don't have to).

Tires/Rims
Wedsport SA-55m, 18x8 +45
Falken 235x35x18 Tires

Aero Stuff
Eventually (if I ever make up my mind) :
Mugen front and LED grille
AMS Sides
C-West CF vented bonnet
Kansai CF rear bumper protector

Tint
15% rear, 45% driver/pass
30% front winker tint

Other:
backup camera (if I can get it working)
Blacked out headliner, pillars and console
upgraded automatic shift knob to MOMO auto shifter
upgraded to red emblems
Window visors (functional to keep out roof rain :p, don't like the look)
Upgrade leather interior
Green Hornet gas gun with ammo, so I have time to pay the bills before wife sees that I'm ordering more stuff... :p

After new car smell disappears, may get hanging air freshner (may even splurge and get vent freshner), maybe some kind of cyrstal to hang from mirror, maybe small garbage bag:dunno:
mine is 6 months old and still smells like new! Its strange actually, like smells will linger for a day (like if i brought a doggy back from dinner) and then the newness comes back. Actually wonder if its a smell associated with the plastics.
