Yeah and in that picture I had to turn on the dome light so it would look better, the camera makes it much darker.

The radar is a Cobra. Ran a bit under 100$, worth it.

just wondering are you going to put a spoiler on it?
I also considered getting one when I got my GSR sedan. Dealer installed it ran like $600. I didn't think it was worth it... plus I wasn't sure how a spoiler on a 4-door would look.

Since then, I've seen it on other 4-doors, and it looks fine. Still not sure if it's worth that much.... it's just for costmetic purposes remember.

Far from, at high speeds spoilers add a great difference.
True, but then we're talking about triple-digit speeds (well over 100 mph). For normal city driving (including highway speeds), the rear spoiler won't make any difference.

In addition, most spoilers on street cars aren't designed to keep the rear end down at high speeds... most are just for show. Ever notice how the spoilers on stock cars look nothing like the huge wings people put on their cars?

Now you're definately right there
Anyway, nice car. That's actually one of the colors I'd consider if I were buying one today. My fiancee really likes that shade of blue.

Absolutely true.

Even if the TSX spoiler was fuctional (it's not), what do you need a bunch of rear downforce for in a front wheel drive car? Is your car tail-happy? Mine's not. :D
