Just got my first 2005 tsx, what you think should be the first mod?
Hello and congrats on your purchase! Is the car completely stock? Let us know more about the car and your plans.

As for my first mod, I lowered my car with the Tein Flex Z before I did anything else.

It’s completely stock, it’s a automatic(sadly) but still love the way the car look in general, I was thinking of lowering my car as the first mod lol, and how are the Tein Flex Z holding up?

I agree with you when I first saw the TSX in person. The Flex Z is holding up pretty well for over a year and a half. I've used these suspension for time attack and for daily use and they're still stiff like when I first got it. Theres a dampener setting where you can adjust how soft or hard you want your ride quality to be.

There should be more posts on this forum for suspensions if you want to compare prices and quality. It can narrow down your choices and make it easier for you to decide.

Not sure where you are from but if you're from somewhere sunny, tint your windows. If you're from somewhere wet, get all-weather mats. Just being practical since you didn't give any direction. Best of luck.

Congrats on the purchase. My first "mod" was a new stereo. Just installed it last summer after having it completely stock for 13 years but I love it. I did a 9" Pioneer unit. I did have it tinted from the dealer when I bought it. And 3 weeks ago I installed an intake.
If you don't have fog lights, get some factory style LED ones. I also just changed all the bulbs to LEDs except the high and low beams.

Congrats on the new for you car!

The first few things I did with my 2004, which was completely stock except for aftermarket amber fog lights: removed fogs, added all weather floor and trunk mats, cargo net, cleaned and treated all the leather with Lexol, replaced the battery, new OEM brake pads, and a K&N Typhoon CAI. That kept me going until I needed the usual high mileage maintenance: rebuilt PS pump, replaced axles, etc... Overall, this car is the 2nd most reliable car I've owned. The first was a '99 Integra GS-R .
