Will go with the VTEC option as they are kinda powerful than the normal.
Kinda more powerful? Think again. Dual cam, twin turbo, a VTEC with that setup would smoke alot of things on the road right now.

and lastly throw in 2x 1000Watts subs with an AMP
I sure hope your going to have an amp that can handle the impedance of 2 seperate 1000watt subs.

Ah, my first car is a 1998 Chrysler Cirrus - It's actually a decent sedan despite having 145,000 miles on it and it gets 25-30mpg even though it's a V6. It suites me, goes fast when I want it to, and is nice and safe. Plus it has leather seats, cruise control, power everything, it's pretty well stacked.

What's up with all these japanese cars? Everybody knows Germany makes cars, Japan/Korea/Asia in general makes vehicles. :P I'm kinda full of it after buying a BMW, which is far superior to any car I've ever driven, and believe me when I say I have driven A LOT of cars. As far as tuning and styling goes, I'm leaving that to people with a lot of money and nothing else to spend it on. I've got other bills to pay, and don't care about tuning the car. And what's the use for an 18 year old to ride a fast car when he's not able to handle it yet? When you've had your licence for about 5 years or so, you can call yourself an experienced driver, and then you could invest in a speedmonster. Just my opinion though.

Agreed on the tuning and handling of cars, especially with youngsters...but no way on the Jap cars

Jap cars are superb, nothing beats them for reliability, innovation, performance and (sometimes) looks

Now where on earth did you get that from? :P They are pure evil when it comes to working on, like they were assembled in hell. I used 9 hours to switch the gearbox on my old Golf IV, and after that I swore never to work on a VW ever again. :P

Would be good if ceramic brakes did that. What you're describing would be vented carbon ceramic discs about twice the size of the standard ones with new calipers with double or more the amount of pistons, a whole new pump and feed system and tyres worth more than the original car.

And the list of modifications you would need to make to a civic (will list if you fancy a read) to get its fat ass to 62 in 4 seconds would be epic and exceed the wallet of the majority of people

Anyone who spends that on a Civic would be an idiot for sure, the list of hardware required for that would be mental.

I don't think they even make ceramic breaks for Civics and if they did you'd be talking 1000's for just the parts.
