I've always had a question...I know people say the TSX is just a rebadged EuroAccord...but why in the blue hell would someone want their ACURA to look like a measely HONDA...I mean you dont see people trying to make their Lexus look like a Toyota...or Maybach look like a benz (haha not a good syllojizzzzzism)

Um, Actually People make there Lexus's into Toyota's...



Heres your new Acura RL


The Previous Generation Acura TL


Maybach isnt an exact Copy of a Benz, However the TSX has the Accord body... which is why its easily rebadgeable as the Accord Euro, Also there's really nothing Wrong w/ A Honda, having a Honda doesnt make you any less of a man, if u feel that way get rid of the TSX because it is a Honda...People in the US are way to obsessed with the status symbol, personally I like having the Car Re-badged, its more Unique, everyone wants to know what the hell it is... and it gets a ton of looks...

Memphis,

Your answer is somewhat paradoxical-- it seems uniqueness and attention is what you're after, but respect and esteem you are not? Personally, I bought the TSX why many other people bought it--because its not just a sport sedan but a luxury sport sedan loaded with ciara's goodies...but i'd much rather see Acura take the next step into luxurious primacy...I mean if the mass-produced Toyota can somehow market Lexus to be super luxurious how come people can't respect Acura...I'm not just talking about the RSX's and TSX's--but the RLs and TLs as well...

btw, i appreciate your insight, and to an extent egoism and others is what i was thinking when i posted that (but im not admitting im wrong :p...and hell if im gonna sell my car or let alone not drive a car :X)

Vince,

The TSX is a rebadged model of the Accord, luxurious or not is only limited to budget and market availability. The Honda Accord is still far more superior in terms of performance and luxury compared with the TSX. In short, it is a Honda while Acura is a marketing spin-off to give that added luxury label.

Same deal with Lexus and Toyota. JDM Toyotas are more luxurious than Lexus anywhere else in the world bar none. Same marketing spin-off applied by just about every car manufacturer under the sun. The primary manufacturer will always be more superior compared to a marketed spin-off.
