    Honestly a well made 3.5L-3.8L V6 wouldn't be the end of a world, the RL is still only competition for the GS, 5, E, etc., not exactly LS, S, 7 range...of course a 4.0L V8 would be ideal but I don't think that's gonna happen :hs:

    i've seen tons of TL's around DFW lately, and they're fucking PIMP!

    Acura is really winning me over with all their new designs. :cool:

    the new TL is the phattest shit that Acura has ever produced since the intro of the NSX. Obviously the NSX is WAY over priced and slow for todays standards but when it came out it was an unbelivably amazing machine.
