Does anyone else not like the body panel lines/separation of the 3rd gen TL?

I am referring to the defining lines in between each panel, it just doesn't look right to me

I dunno if you noticed, but if you scroll down you'll find these guys just chillin'.



...and don't say none of your threads fit these categories.

I won't say none of them do but very few do enough to justify placing them in such low traffic sections compared to this where no one would see them

the tsx design looks more "clean" and streamlined. But i think the TL is more aggressive looking and commands more road presence especially with the wider stance, flared fender arches and slightly different headlight design (compared to the tsx)

I think that's the best description I've heard right there.

+1 well said

Straight roads are for fast cars; twisty roads are for fast drivers.

Guys, even though TSXnewbie5 is creating a lot of threads, they are of topic and in appropriate sections. If you guys see any of his thread asking duplicate questions of past threads, post it in the thread and I'll lock the new thread. Otherwise, he's not doing any harm.

This thread is discussing 3G TL in the Automotive section. I don't see anything wrong with it.

I love the TL as well. It's too bad it pretty much has only one lip kit (A-Spec), which doesn't flatter it too much imo. For body lines, I think the TL has sexy lines as well, not too different from our TSX. As for the wide fender flares of the TL compared to the TSX, I think the TSX can also appear wide with the addition of a lip kit. Not to whore my car out, but this is the comparison I'm talking about. That fact that the lip kit makes it a little lower also helps make it appear wider.

TL Body

I think the 3rd generation TL is just about as ugly as it gets, especially the back end of it.
