Hello All!

found this site while googling some stuff.
seems pretty cool so i figured id register.

just picked up a 2012 Special Edition black w/ black interior

came from a 2003 S2000.

LOVED the S2000 but a spinal injury was making it painful to drive.
i honestly didnt even consider a TSX and had my eyes set on a IS350 but Lexus wasnt really willing to deal and the min i laid eyes on the Alcantara interior, i was in love rrrrrrrrr6


im not a real heavy "modder".
im still not sure if i want to do anything to the TSX.. i think shes pretty perfect the way she is..

Here she is..









Will post better pics later if interested.
these are just crappy cell phone pics after a nasty storm..

still need to give her a good detailing. i bought the car when it was pouring out so i skipped the dealer detail and i honestly prefer washing my own car anyway..


heres some pics of my old S2000 if anyone is interested..

thanks!

it was hard to part with that car.
S2000 was one of my "dream cars" when i was younger.
i remember seeing the concept pics and drooling.

TSX is filling the void nicely though.
i have been pleasantly surprised with the power on the TSX.

some updates.

Vinyl overlay on the grill.
painted the fog light covers.



35% tint all around


plasti-dipped rear emblems. the acura emblem was done after the pic was taken.
also wrapped the chrome strip in carbon fiber vinyl.



painted the engine covers (acura emblem was painted black after the pic was taken)


Vinyl trimmed the interior panels


i am aware the part around my ebrake is going a different direction. i actually did it on purpose to see how the "V" effect would look. still kinda undecided about it.

seeing about getting the silver interior trim covered in alcantara. id have to ship my parts out to get it done right and im not sure if i wanna do that..

plasti-dipped my door handles but ended up taking them off. it looked a bit off with the chrome trim around the windows.



swapped all the interior bulbs out for LEDs.
white for everything except the back dome light which i did in blue.
LED DRLs on the way (i dont use my high beams much)
6000k Fog light bulbs also on the way.
Deck lid spoiler getting painted next week. (im rattle canning it) so that should be on soon.

future plans.
new suspension
new wheels
(if my wife lets me) lol

yea.. of the OEM ones, i dont mind these at all. i would have prefered some 18s. the A-spec wheels or the Canadian A-spec wheels would have been awesome.
these arnt that bad which is good since i prob wont be able to get new wheels for my car for a while.

i want something concave =)
