  1. Best prize/perfomance/durability/quality ratio? I've heard Blue print makes good aftermarket parts for Japanese vehicles especially. Should be better or same as OEM they claim. Ferodo? TRW? Delphi? Bosch? Also should you ever use different pads with different disc brand? Or different combo in front vs rear axle?
  2. Has anyone here bought new aftermarket front fenders for their MB6? Or just got used ones from scrap yard etc. ? I was wondering if the aftermarket ones fits directly or if there are any seam gaps, if the headlight and bonnet fit to it properly etc. Things that can go wrong. Diederichs makes them but couldn't find those. I got myself Polcar ones. https://catalog.polcar.com/#!KatKatalogGlowny/fender-front-381102/492184 Should i try fitting them first before getting them painted at a shop? I was thinking of putting them on later in spring. But could get them painted already. Any bodypanel/exterior info would be welcome in this forum. Considering aftermarket parts especially.

    wheel nuts for MB6 OEM wheels

    I suppose the aftermarket one isn't safe to use with OEM wheels. Sitting of the nut looks so different.

    wheel nuts for MB6 OEM wheels

    Are they 60 degree cone design or what? Can someone show pictures? I have old rusty ones which aren't originals.

    MB6 exhaust options/specs

    How did you get rid of the booming/droning noise? What kind of muffler? What was the size of that magnaflow? inlet and outlet piping size? Length of muffler? I wonder if free flowing mufflers always drone on Hondas... All aftermarket/Universal ones seems to be freeflowing. No sound deadening what so ever?

    MB6 exhaust options/specs

    What is the stock/OEM pipe diameter in MB6? 2.0 or 2.25?

    MB6 exhaust options/specs

    Does anyone have supersprint (923125) silencer in their MB6? what is the diameter? 2.25? 2.5? I have 2.5 piping at the moment. Muffler/silencer should ideally be 2.5 too. Supersprint seem pricey but i suppose it's a quality product? Sounds are usually fine too but what about on MB6? Anyone here had one? Too loud? Booming noice? "Ricey"? I don't want too loud but some sound would be nice. Current one is too booming under hard gas or high way speeds in general. Any suggestions? Some magnaflow oval? What are the specs for original exhaust system with MB6? Pipe diameter? Never had original in mine when i got so it would be interesting to know.

    Help with door card upholstery please!

    I actually kind of like that seat and door card coloring. Seems unique compared to average cars of today. Isn't that surprisingly rear feature in these cars? I only know that some 1.6 versions have that interior.

    +25 ET on MB6?

    15x7.5 et30 and 185/55R15 tires on those pictures. Slight stretch on tires. I could maybe pull off 195 but it could rub on the rear. Rolled and pulled fenders and rear arches. No camber. You should be fine, but might have to roll the lip from rear arches to avoid any scrub. Maybe you don't have to. Can't guarantee it. et30 with 7.5 wide wheel is pretty much the maximum with stock camber i'd say. With 195 tire you probably won't have to roll arches or add camber. I'd like to avoid camber too. Very slight can be okay even look wise but tire wear would still be nightmare probably... 7 should be ok with 38

    Help me find some new Alloys!

    If you can find JR7 or JR4 cheap, they should be okay for track i believe. Of course not as good as Enkei rpf1 etc. but still. I have tf2 and they outperform oem wheels on MB6 in my opinion. I haven't really pushed my car but it is more stable at tight corners. Only minus is i have 3mm spacers at front because of caliper clearance... Should fit to MB3 straight on because of smaller brakes. TF2 has some nice dish and they still seem pretty practical for spirited driving. If you fear on built quality, i'm happy with mine. Altough i haven't raced them. Also i'm not sure if they're the lightest wheels around but should be okay with 15's. I had similar deep dish wheels to tf2 on my 88 CRX and it handled superbly compared to original wheel specs. 15x7.5 ET25. That seems fine spec for old civics. Handling and stance/look wise. How about Rotas? BM8 15" 8" 4x100mm ET10 Rota Kensei 15" 8" 4x100mm ET0 Rota Zero 15" 7" 4x100mm ET35 Rota OSR 15" 7" 4x100mm ET35

    camber kits manufacturers - experiences

    SKUNK2 should be good if you want quality. HARDRACE ones should be ok too. BLOX Racing too? US-Racing or similar if you're on budget. I run stock arms so i don't have experience. I had Skunk2 coilovers on my CRX and i have nothing bad to say about those. Quality products.
  13. Hey! Has any of you heard or had any MAXGEAR wheel bearings? http://maxgear.pl/product-range-drive-o106.en.html I can get those for 30 Euros (rear axle) from webstore. Others are: Japanparts at 47 Euros. BTA 52 euros, OPTIMAL 78 Euros. SKF 75 euros (supposedly OEM quality). What wheel bearings should i get? Have any of you heard of any of those brands? How much would you pay for that part yourself?
