Hey all!

Picked up my Championship White FL5 a month ago & have done a couple of small mods in the first ~900 miles:

  • Front & Rear Hypersuede Red seat covers by @L1MTD_R
  • Front & Rear Rock Guards by @sukeban.design
  • High Performance S Air Filter by Sprint (not pictured)

Finally got some time today to take some pictures:

Been a while since I posted an update but just installed:

  1. OEM Honda Window Visors
  2. FL5 Swift Spec-R Springs.

Slightly stiffer than stock but I don't think too drastic. 1 inch drop and I'd say probably 1.75 finger fit?

Hoping I can do wheels next but these stock wheels are looking good.. Excuse the dirt, it just rained 😥

Beautiful. How do you like the Swift Spec-R’s? I have my appointment coming up soon to get mine installed.

Haha shoot I missed this. You've probably had them on for a while but they're great! Slightly stiffer than stock I think but nothing aggressive. Hope you like them too!

Couple things done since last update:

- Honda Euro/Japan horn installed
- Installed the OEM Carbon Fiber wing

A little more aggressive than stock. Had to wait until a little less rain in the Bay Area.

Install was very easy, they even came with replacement clips since the OEM clips that need to be used can be brittle
Did you have to pull the bumper to install the Honda Euro Horn? I’m dying to get mine in, but pulling the bumper freaks me out a bit.

Yep, it’s surprisingly not too painful. Though, I would recommend bundling any mods that require removing it together if you can.

There’s no guide specifically for the FL5 online but if you look at videos removing the bumper for the FL1, they mention having to remove screws but it’s all clips on the FL5.

Just take your time and you’ll be good, I recommend a long, thin spudge to remove the clips underneath the headlights. If the spudge is too thick, you could bend the bumper in a bit..

Been a while since I updated. Lots of changes since, installed an aftermarket intake, strut bar, and got new wheels!

Spoon SW388 18x9.5 +40 on 265/35/18 Advan Apex V601’s. Dream wheel 🙌

Nice! I love the SW388s, what front lip is that?
