    RL is useless. TL is still kind of hard on the eyes.

    But... they announce a god damn 300hp V6 for the TSX while leaving it front wheel drive :ugh: :ugh: :ugh:

    If there was one thing, ONE THING... Acura could have done to please the car gods, was to give the TSX more power, with SH-AWD and a manual transmission. Honestly I think the RDX powerplant and sh-awd [with a 6-speed manual] in the TSX would have been a flawless victory.

    But what do they do :ugh: They toss in their 300hp 3.7 liter and leave it front-wheel drive.

    The TSX has grown on me... the taillights still look like something that belongs on a kia though.

    Plus I think it looks better when you paint the power plenum

    thats so fucking discusting looking :hsugh:


    and i like the original body style

    front section between the headlights looks retarded, having those retardedly contoured fenders is gay, those brake lights look like ther suckin dick in the background, and the headlights are just trying to stretch themselves away from that fugly front clip

    3.5L V6. But I know what you mean. SH-AWD + RDX motor + manual = win

    Honda should follow in the footsteps of GM and Chrysler and start pumping out rwd cars. This can't fail.
