From Acura-TSX.com
Here are a few pictures I took on Friday as they were loading the TLs into the transport heading back to California. Its obvious that Acura did not put a lot of effort into sneaking the TL in and out of town unnoticed. They parked on one of the busiest streets in downtown Seattle for an hour while getting the cars loaded. To me it looks like they wanted people to see it.

So what can be learned from these photos:

1. There are definitely two break specs. Brembo on the 6 speed and a lower spec on the automatic.
2. No AWD.
3. 6 DVD/CD changer in dash. Will Acura offer a video monitor for the back seat?
4. Mobile phone controls in steering wheel but non of the controls look like they are illuminated (could this be?).
5. LED rear lights.
6. Sunroof controls and OnStar (?) controls mounted up high.
7. Potential evidence of the adaptive cruise control "sonar" on the front bumper.
8. No rear-view camera.
9. No rear park control evidence.
10. Evidence of blue "ambiance" lighting in the overhead console...a la TSX.
11. Camel interior comes with Walnut wood trim.
12. Leather seating surface is perforated.
13. Standard rubber is 235/45R17

I have no problem making these images Acura-TSX.com exclusive. If someone wants to mark them up and re-post them at the top of the thread, that's fine with me.

It's not the new Acura TL.

Acura TL = the replacement of Acura Vigor
Acura TS = the replacement of 4 door Teg

I have seen TSX on the road, it's not eye catching to me considering the new mazda 6, lexus IS or even altima look better IMO.

Not the new acura TL?



The TSX is the 4 door Integra replacement...the TL is a different car.

Don't know if any specs are out right now. acrua-TSX.com apparently got the pics by calling every hotel in the area after seeing a TL around there and they found out there was an acura convention in town.

Yeah, that's the new one. Sorry, I thought when I read the board it was the TSX, my bet


Oh well, it looks kind of ugly

Yeah, that bodyline is pretty pointless and nasty.

Why did Honda/Acura design the thing to look so much like the TSX? This is beyond just "styling cues."

pfft, I'll take the TSX and the extra wad of cash I have leftover, thanks
I'll take the factory warranty of the M5 and there won't be too much money left after said mods to the TL and then you still have to try and get the TL to handle as well as the M5.

BMW please

I'll just buy a used car, like a 240sx, mod that suckah, and I'll still spend less then the TL, TSX, M5, etc.


Hell I'll be happy with just that. [censored] the warranty of a new car...gonna void it anyway when I start modding it.

Overall, it looks pretty good. They should have made it look less like the tsx though.
