Has anyone seen or drove the Indigo Blue TSX?

I am considering going with blue, since the black only comes with that puke-brown interior colour. :mad: But I haven't seen the blue yet.

I saw the TSX in Indigo Blue at Camco Acura on Carling last week.

(1) Outside looks: Simply gorgeous, and that's what I am getting. I have seen all other colours except silver, and so far the Indigo Blue is the nicest one.

(2) Interior colour: The Indigo Blue comes with the black leather which I think will resist dirt much more than the beige leather - especially when dirt gets into the perforations.

(3) Test drive: I drove a manual (red colour). The drive is really nice, quiet. The gear shift is really smooth and short. It was rainy so I couldn't do any spirited driving.

When are u planning to buy, drop me a note.

I'm waiting to see Indigo blue in person. I have a preference for dark blues so it will be either dark blue or silver for me.
Test drive on Saturday morning. I'm excited as hell. This will be my first new car and my first "real" performance car.

I'm test driving the red demo they have in Camco on Friday. I was thinking of signing the papers then for a black one, I love the black, saw one in Toronto.

But then I realized Black only comes with the beige interior, which I could live with, if only it wasn't for the ugly wood trim. I don't think I could stand looking at that everyday. It is bizarre why Acura Canada is so stupid in their colour choices, who the hell would offer black exterior with no black interior option. :mad: In the US the get a choice for interior colour.

Anyways, I'd like to see what Indigo blue looks like. I haven't seen one but sounds like it's nice, so I probably go for the blue.

Hey Soze75, I like dark blue too, but TSX doesn't come in dark blue, or Silver. In Canada the colour choices are: Black, Red, White, Indigo Blue. :eek: It's pathetic.... how do we complain to Acura?

Bozz, did they have a blue in Camco? I was there yesterday I only saw a red and a black. I'm thinking of buying pretty soon (next week), how much discount do you expect to get? Is Hall acura better than Camco?

Thanks.

Hey Moisted.
I totally agree with you on the black. I was ready to go for black until I found out that it only came with the beige leather and wood trim...ughhhh!!
My sales guy showed me the Indigo blue on a colour chart and it was darker than the Arctic. I'd have to see it on the car to be sure of its hue. He also confirmed silver as a colour choice as well. The one I sat in was silver and I saw two silver and two white being delivered to them a week ago. Maybe you were told "no silver" because they haven't ordered any in the first few shipments, but that in itself would seem outrageous since silver is one of the most popular colours these days. I am pissed that we Canadians don't get gunmetal grey metallic or whatever they call it. I love that colour!
Good luck, and tell us how that test drive goes.
Time for work now,
Go Canucks!

Soon to be Silver/Indigo Blue TSX, black interior, 6-speed, and a huge f'n smile. :D

Hey Moisted:

They were delivering the Indigo Blue to a customer.

Some additional comments about the car:

- I am surprised it lacks memory seats and hydraulic supports for the engine cover.

- Comparos: Anybody knows when we will see comparos against the 325 and A4 in the auto magazines.

- Acura says the TSX passenger compartment size is 91ft3. I did not feel it was that much smaller than the 101ft3 Accord 03 (mind you the Accord with mooroof should be 99ft3).

Regarding the discount I have not started negotiating, but the Sales Rep hinted they were offering none. I hear some people in Toronto were able to get $1000 off. I will be checking the dealership in Gatineau this week end.

:cool:

Hey Bozz. agree with you on memory seats, I'm disappointed too. I also agree with you on the desert-sand colour, the one they have for RSX, that is one cool colour. Do you guys think perhaps we should wait til next year, they will most probably offer better colour choices next year.

I'm test driving tonight (I had to postpone, too busy these days). I'll let you know how it goes.

But I really really like the black. Damn that ugly wood ....

:mad:

Okay boyz & girls, I bought my TSX today :D I went to see my buddy at Camco, test drove the car, then started to haggle. I was lucky since my sister inlaw was buying an RSX at the same time. So we were able to bring the guy down since he was selling two cars.

After a couple of hours, I signed the lease for $1300 below msrp. (my sister inlaw bought her RSX for $2100 below). I'm so excited... :D

If you guys want to try this guy at Camco, let me know I'll refer you to him. He's probably the only descent sales person there.

:cool:

Way to go Moisted. I'll be using your experience as ammunition to try and get the price down a bit when the time comes. I'm driving that baby today if all goes well. I'm sure your posts will be few and far between now, due to your new purchase. Drive on buddy:cool:

Okay, I'll try and answer your questions as much as I can, if I miss anything let me know.

My TSX - The only option I added was the rear spoiler. Since my wife is going to share the car with me I had to buy an automatic (I know, I know... but at least it has a sportshift, besides I get to keep my Prelude SRV for when I really crave to shift).

Colour - This is the funny thing, I signed the bill of sales without specifying the colour :p . Since they didn't have the blue on the lot I told the guy I would go to Casino Acura to checkout the blue, then I would tell him if I want blue or black. I love the black except for the puke wood trim. So I may go for blue. I'm supposed to call him by end of day tomorrow.

Camco guy - His name is Khalil (or Khal), number: 728-8888. Right now he's the manager of Used Cars section, but also deals new cars. He's a really descent person to deal with.

Driving Impressions - For me the most important thing in a car is handling. I've had my Prelude for 7 years, I've been spoilt. The TSX handles as good or better than my Lude. I test drove a 240hp Accord coupe, it goes like sting but I didn't buy it because I had to slow down at corners, I ain't doin' that. The TSX corners great and it's fast enough (even with the auto). The engine has that quiet roar to it that I love, it's a mixture of the familiar Vtec prowl combined with german bmw-like solid metallic sound. It's different from any other Honda/Acura I've driven. I loved driving it. The guy gave me the keys, and I didn't want to come back...

Can't wait to pick it up.
:cool:

Nice description of the engine noise or should I say, soundtrack. I got it up to 6000rpms and the sound was wicked.
I still have to wait a month or two until I know I can afford this car. Until then I'll be following your ownership experience.
Enjoy mate!:)

The white is cool, but I just had my mind set on black or blue. I just came back from checking out the Indigo Blue they had parked at Casino Acura. I don't like it, it's almost purple in the sun. It's a weird colour. I just don't like it, I was hoping it'd be darker, more normal blue.

I would love to have a talk with the marketing department of Acura Canada, and ask them why the hell they'd come up with these weird colours, when they already know people like the sandy gold, carbon gray, dark blue, even the bright blue available in the US. Just doesn't make sense. At least make those colours available, then come up with bizarre ones. :confused:

So black it is for me... I'll get a metal trim for the interior strip as soon as one becomes available after market.

wow i thought the colors would be atleast the same with the u.s almost purple :( (I dont think they care if people buy their car)

I wish they had the yellow one like mazda 6 would look completly amazing with the tsx.
