Hey guys, new member checking in from Scottsdale, Arizona.

There's not much of an 'enthusiast' base yet for the 2013 ILX but I've been browsing the TSX forums since we share a lot (drivetrain wise, anyway) in common. In June I got a 2013 ILX 6MT Premium in Silver Moon Metallic with Ebony Interior.

It also has the Sport Underbody Kit, Lip Spoiler, Accessory 17" Wheels, Illuminated Door Sills, Cargo Tray, and All-Weather Mats.

The odometer is at 14,800 miles already. I'm blogging about my experience with the car on Drive to Five: drivetofive. Car's a blast; I love the rev-happy 2.4L 201 hp four that's carried over from the TSX. The six speed is smooth as can be. I'm getting 32 mpg average.

Here are a few recent pics.





















This car replaces my old trusty 1994 Legend LS coupe 6-speed as a daily driver after over 9 years. I've had the Legend since it had 95,000 miles on the odometer and it is currently at just over 515,000. Original engine, trans, and clutch. I turned over 500,000 miles in it at Acura HQ in Torrance, CA last November.

Anyway, good to be here and look forward to learning a thing or two about TSXs from you all.

Welcome!

Love the ILX, but that Legend is the bomb! Those 6 speeds from 94 and 95 are golden, and very rare. Glad you stayed in the Acura family.

Thanks man, appreciate that. Yeah it was pretty surreal pulling up to the red carpet and seeing my name there larger than life. I got to bring the banner home and it's hanging on my garage wall.

Thanks, yeah I'll always love my Legend. The Type II 6MT coupe came out in 1993, and then the Type II 6MT GS sedan followed in 1994. The Legend was killed after 1995. I have a sedan that matches my coupe. The coupe has 515,300 on it. The sedan has 143,200. Both are 6-speeds. Tough to find.

Thanks for having me. Yeah I love the OEM accessories. The only thing I didn't get (exterior wise, anyway) was the side moldings on the doors.

Thanks and likewise!
don't they share similarities with the civic instead? Otherwise, it's a good looking car!
Truth - it's based on the Civic platform. And thanks!
The legend comes in 6 speed?
Yes, it did for the last 3 years of production.

I LOVE your collection of Acura Legends. I wanted a 6speed Legend SO badly.. Extremely rare indeed! I can't believe you have a coupe and sedan. Drool-worthy!

Congrats on the newest purchase!

The legends are beautiful indeed, and the ILX is stunning too. 6MTs all across the board!
