This is a ridiculous question to ask in a TSX forum. You're going to get biased answers, unless you're asking because that's what you want to hear and deep down, you want the TSX anyway.Looking to buy a 2nd Gen TSX (07/08) or 3rd gen TL (07/08), and sell my 07 Si. I like both!
Just want the 6 speed manual in whatever one I get. Which one, and why?
Muchas grassy ass! :rice:Your tsx above looks good man!
I'm usually the first to bring this up when debating between the two as the definitive reason for choosing the TSX over the TL. But I forgot to this time, thanks for bringing it up. The reasoning for the TL's exclusion was because of it's torque-steer heavy FWD design.As someone mentioned earlier, the forum here is biased -- most of us have a TSX.
But with regard to an unbiased group of people who are paid to drive and rate cars, I like to point out Car and Driver magazine's take on this. They awarded the first gen TSX the "Ten Best Cars" award three years in a row. (2004, 2005, 2006). The third gen TL did not win, and was not even nominated.
They have the award issues online (search their site), and you can read exactly why they loved the TSX.
one of the biggest reasons why i wanted a tsx since i found out about it back in 2003... when i saw how the car was included over and over again the c&d's 10 best i knew i had to have the car. before that i wanted an accord... well, in a way, i still do have an accord i guessMy pleasure. (Good to see someone else appreciated those awards...they were instrumental in convincing me to buy my 06 TSX way back when...and I usually bring this up in another forum.) The other pertinent thing that the Car & Driver editors said each year in the "Ten Best" awards write-up was that they absolutely loved the 6MT version of the TSX and recommended it over the auto, (saying it was so precise and smooth that a surgeon's scalpel would be jealous)...thought I'd throw that in, since the OP was considering a 6MT.
Oh man I'm so jealous, when I was shopping for my TSX, I could not for the life of me find a 6MT model. Good luck!Thanks for the replies...I may have found a 2008 M/T black in color TSX. I already know I can use hondata Flashpro for the tune, and maybe some wheels, cold air intake, and race header (I am coming from the 07 Civic Si 6 M/T)...
