Duh, but other than an engine swap it can't simply be the Honda w/ different badges and a higher sticker

Guess what - the European and JDM accords have all of those!! All honda did was slap the Acura name badge on it, drop a higher powered engine in it, and then sold it as a new flavour to North Americans.

Umm, I don't think that's completely true. The stereo system, seats, center console, gauges (in fact the whole dashboard) are unique to Acura. On top of that the warranty coverage is longer/more comprehensive on the Acura, although one could argue that you might never need it. I think the Sportshift Auto is unique to the Acura as well.

With that said, it is essentially just what you say, a rebadged Euro Accord, but there are quite a few minor differences.

The only thing the TSX has in common with Hondas is that it has the European Accord body. The rest is made by Acura. I know Acura is owned by Honda. There still a difference.
