New here! CL7 Kit questions?

Hello all!
I'm new here, although I've been stalking for quite some time.
My girlfriend and I both drive Integras at this time, but have been looking into purchasing an Automatic TSX, as a family car, but keeping an Acura/Honda family.

We've been looking around, and realised that there are Lip kits available for the TSX, as well as the front grill and grill trim and emblems, from the Accord Euro-R.

My biggest question is this; how far in depth would I have to go to convert the exterior, as of now, into a CL7 euro-r?
I can't figure out the year differences in them(we'd be getting a Gen1), as far as headlights, bumpers(if need-be, or is the lip kit the only difference?) and I know the only difference of the hood is the little trim piece, I believe.

Where could I find more information on this, as well as possibly a guide to install said products.

Remember, going for aesthetics using genuine parts for a family car; it isn't cool to spill the babies cheerios whilst shifting, lol.

Thanks a ton!

How hard is it to source a full Euro-r front end conversion, with Rad support, bumper, head lights(I've also heard there are two different kinds?...) and grille?
And it would all have to be from the same year as the one I'd be getting?
So, if I had an 06, I'd have to get the front end from an 06-08 euro r? As well as headlights, etc?.

Sorry about the noobish questions. I don't know much about TSX's, lol.
So, as you had said before, the 06-08 is a better all around option?
Do the aspec lip kits fit well? With little-to-no modification?. And would you use special mounting hardware or what?

As far as fitting the grill, do you have a picture of someone you know that definitely ziptied it or something? If I could cheap out, per say, and save money, I think I will if the look isn't drastic...

The more I search, I also find people selling "JDM Euro-r Tail lights" and I've compared two side-by-side and can't see any difference in them. I don't know if I'm looking at two of the same, or if there isn't really a difference, but it doesn't seem to be apparent to me..
Also, the 06 hoods don't have that trim piece on the bottom, do they?

And agreed on the integra thing.
I've seen several people rocking the 98 spec bumpers with 94 spec headlights, it looks extremely ridiculous...

Thanks for all of your help!!
Is there any way I could rep you?
See less See more
Also, just looked around, and the A-spec doesn't look much anything like the euro-r ones. >.<
04-08 Acura Tsx Body Kits from VIS Racing at Andy's Auto Sport

I know it's from andysautosport, but that second kit, does that look more like the euro-r to you?
Would you get that instead of the a-spec? Or would the fitment be pretty shotty?
I see what you're saying now^.

It's pretty hard to notice, lol.(The gap under the grill)
Oh, gotcha...
Would I need the jdm bumper to fit the jdm headlights in? or are they interchangeable, if they were both 6spec?
Thank you, as well, Chikia.
So, all is well with any front grill(Euro r?) or are those year specific as well?
And I actually googled real quick, and nobody can get the Euro r grill to fit in their usdm front bumper...
Ie, Heeltoe Combo Deal, 06-08 Acura TSX JDM Conversion Kit - Grille, emblem kit! - HeelToe Automotive

I like heeltoe, because their stuff comes color-matched.
I'm honestly just trying to rock the rear Acura A, no accord and no tsx, and the front A.. Would I be able to use an A in place of that H^? Or is there a cheaper alternative?
To make it easier Google 2005 Accord Euro-R and 2006 Accord Euro-R, pull up the 2 images and compare. Not knowing the differences between the 2 will make it confusing to shop for kits. That "Euro-R" kit from VIS is for the 06-08 and made out of fiberglass as oppose to polyurethane like the OEM kit. Down that list you will see the "Type-R" kit from VIS and that is the replica Euro-R kit for the 04-05. VIS makes all the replica kits and bumpers available for the TSX so you found all the options we have. Oh wait, except the OEM Modulo Voltage bumper. They don't make that one.

The 06-08 Euro-R grille fits perfect with zero gaps. I have seen MANY 06-08 Euro-R grilles with gaps in the bottom and thats because of improper installation.

My Euro-R grille 0 gaps :grinno:
So, all you did was buy an 06 euro r grill and put it on your 06 tsx? with usdm bumper? and it fits?
I haven't purchased one yet, but will be soon enough.
Either NBP or CGP. It would be an 06-08 year.
But I thought you told me if I had an 06, the euro r grill will fit perfectly?
