Pioneer MP3/CD player
Tib bar at 7k miles. Then at 9k I switched to 17's and 11k went to the CAI.
strut bar followed by CAI shortly after then exhaust/headers and so on it went.
New pair of 12's and a big strong amp to go with em'. Think they were installed about 5 days after I bought the car. Tints were about a week later.
Cyro treated factory rotors with Hawk pads at 19,000, followed by a Tibby GT sway bar.
Had a CD player put in 2 weeks after I bought the car. Although I was plenty capable to put it in myself - it was a "new car" and I didn't want to touch it.

4 months later I found EXD. I'm not sure if there're too many things I haven't take apart now.
maybe this is a mod, maybe not :D
the first thing i did, i rolled off the lot and went home day 1.
Day 2 i went to target and bought huge black rubber mats and put those over the factory ones. They are still there today, only removed for cleaning. That was my first mod lol

if you dont count that, then i replaced the hu day 3 with a sony mp3 player. Did it myself with a print out of the diy fro dash removal here from exd.
Headunit put in about 3 days after purchase.

Window tint after about 10.
First mod was 17's, got rid of those; second mod was the Tib sway bar, still enjoying that mod.
my first mod was Appearance. i got my xd tinted and got me some clear sidemarkers.
My first mod was Audio Head Unit. I ordered it online on the first day.
My first mod was wheels and Tires
17” MR12 Motegi Racing Rims and Kumho Ecsta 215/45 R17

I put them in about 12 hr. from purchase:D

32 hr later I burn out the radio my adding an Amp to it.:(

I guess that's my 2nd mod now I have a Pioneer DEH-P5900I:)
First mod was the SRI then the radio unit.
Appearance. OEM lip spoiler got me hooked. Best $25 spent ever. :D

My first mod was slapping a cone filter onto the stock intake elbow.
Nothing till I found this site, then Accord intake was the first
I can't remember. It was either upgrading to the stock CD player from the cassette deck, the chrome interior door handles, or clear sidemarkers.

I think the following week I bought my car I ended up putting my old system from my previous car in. Just not the same w/out a system
first for me was a shorty antenna and clear sidemarkers . later the cd player, speakers, amp and subs.
