>iM Feature: Adnan’s CCW Swag

>I’ve known Adnan for a few years now and I got to know him better when he picked up his FG – it was around the same time I was doing up my Civic. Over the years, all of us sort of building up our cars similarly but uniquely at the same time. The need to always be different helps push you to build your car better, use legit parts, and set the bar higher for yourself. I think it’s things like that this scene needs – setting the bar higher for yourself and not for the people around you. If you do what you want with the right direction, regardless of what people tell you, there’s a good chance you’ll end up with a car similar to Adnans…

  1. >that intro paragraph is ironic, because literally NOTHING on this car is original. bride interior – copied. ccw's – played out & copied. retrofit – copied. the list goes on. nearly every mod on this car appeared after someone else in the calgary scene did it first. lolz. worst part? it's an automatic.

  2. >I disagree. While there are people that have those parts, it's difficult to argue that you can be unique with any car part. The thing is, you look at the car and it does not look like any other Civic I've seen. Yes, many are rocking Brides, CCW's and retrofits, but the combination of how people put them together make it unique. I don't disagree that the car in it's entirety is completely unique. However, I stand by the fact that work has been put into the car regardless of anything else. Because of that, we can appreciate it. That's all there is to it.

  3. >i definitely agree that it's damn near impossible to have any "unique" mods per se, considering how saturated the car scene is these days. it's more the timing of said mods – and don't forget, we aren't just talking about bride seats. we are talking about an entirely custom bride interior. from what i'm told, someone else did that in another black 8thgen first. if i were that guy, i'd be pissed.not questioning the hard work or cash & dedication it takes to get a car looking like that. some people are just biters by nature.

  4. >great looking car regardless of what people say, it took time, money, some "creativity" and most importantly it took dedication and that's why we're car enthusiast.

  5. >I hear ya. Your point about timing is the only way to describe the scene. You either take the risk to try something different and get followers or it all goes downhill. With that said, regardless of the nature of what has been said, our purpose is to merely showcase. Thanks!

  6. >@anon #1 "worst part? it's an automatic."It's clearly not a race car. I find myself relieved when I see a car that's modified and has stock exhaust. He's clearly not trying to make the car fast, so honestly who cares if it's a 6 speed.Personally i'd hold back on the stickers a bit, but that's cool in this crowd. Nice car.

  7. >fellow fg2 owner here, love your car and interior, hate the wheels too many people have them on too many different cars. I personally would have went with some meisters. But to each his own.

  8. >Adnan bro, that's just an amazing car ! I can tell you put your heart into it and the mods are very tastefully done ! Ignore all the haters, do your thing.

It's also easy to say it all under anonymous.I think the cars dope. You know why it's unique? Because you won't find an FG in this form. It's someones idea in their head, applied in real life. Like Jason's FG, unique. No one really tunes, or takes time to make FG's in Calgary a scene car – and I've only seen at most 6 and they all differ from so many levels. It wouldn't really matter if the car was automatic or standard anyways – it's preference. Sometimes I wish my truck was Automatic, sometimes I don't.I think the next time you feel like speaking your mind, don't do it under anonymous, at least have the respect to say something demeaning without hiding. You pretty much disrespected a persons hard work.Car's dope Adnan. Everyones going to hate and the ones that voice their concerns – aren't on your level. It's dope.

  10. >Well said, Ray.It's relieving to know that there are still people that appreciate the overall work of projects like this and not nit-pick every part of the car and hate on it.That's what we need more of. Haters ruin the scene, no matter how dope your car may be or what you think you know.

  11. >Hey Guys,Regardless of what has been said, I would still like to thank Mr.Anonymous for taking the time to actually look at each part I have and taking notice of it. I could go on and justify to him/her why I have put each part that I have on my car, but frankly I don't want to take the topic of this feature off direction. I would like to thank you guys for the kind words, and a big thank you to the iM crew, very nice and down to earth guys, I love your work, keep on doing what you guys do!-Adnan
