2004 SSM Acura TSX A-Spec

Have a thread open in the intro section but I think this is a better place to post some more pictures.

When I first purchased the car, it came with the aspec lip kit but one thing that really bothered me was the 4 finger wheel gap; I literally could fit my whole hand in there... For a sport sedan, I don't understand why honda designed the car with so much wheel gap. Even the '06+ civics had way less wheel gap compared to the TSX. :puke:

I've been steadily adding mods but trying to keep it simple and clean. So far, I think getting coilovers was the best mod since it not only improved the appearance of the car but also improved the handling. It's amazing what a difference a decent drop and some tint does to the overall appearance of the car. New rims will definitely be next up on the list.

Current Mods:
- hondata reflash
- CT icebox
- progress 22mm RSB
- tein street basis coilovers
- 20% tint all around
- '06 steering wheel
- oem style fogs
- LED license plate bulbs
- viper 5901 rs/alarm

Future mods:
- 18" rims
- UR pulleys
- headers
- hid fogs
- speaker upgrade

How it looked when I first brought it home back in Feb 2012:


Put on OEM rims with summer tires in the spring:

Didn't realize it's been over a year since i've last updated this thread. :surprised Not much has changed cosmetically besides the new rims and slightly lower stance. New mods since my last update:

- 06-08 navi
- dc sports header
- flp high flow cat
- UR underdrive pulley set
- 18x8 enkei rpf1
- ebay m3 style lip spoiler
- Osram CBI 5k hid bulbs
- infinity components 6.5 and 6x9 speakers

I'm thinking the next cosmetic upgrade will be 06-08 jdm/edm headlights and euro r grill. What do you guys think? :wavey:

This little gem just showed up in the mail this morning:




I'm anticipating a gain of 25WDP (wheel dog power) :mardi:

thanks man

it's the oem emblem that came on TL, RL, CL, RSX and TSX that had the aspec kit and it was available for sale at dealers up until late 2011 i think. they're pretty rare and sought after now

Where'd you grab that from?
Also offset on wheels? If you don't mind me asking.

got it brand new and sealed on ebay for what I think was a steal. Wheels +35 offset and no fender mods.

No fender mods with a drop like that? Wow. Would have thought it was rolled at least.
Thanks for answering :thumbsup:

Yea it's a very tight fit in the rear prob only 2mm of clearance and would rub if I ran stock camber. Front fender liners are tucked but that's all that's done to make these fit. 9" width for these rims would have been ideal but I didn't want to mess with my fenders or run stretched tires
