For those of you who may remember me, I used to be the administrator and technical moderator of the sister site tsx club (ID: Peregrine) but moved away from that role in 2009. I've had plenty of car pics there for years showing the progressive development, but few years ago stopped using the domain server I used and none of the pics are showing there anymore. So I'm attaching plenty of pictures here. Some were just taken, others were taken few years ago, but the car and its condition has not changed a bit (except for new tires and centercaps).

No verification slip, but I think after so many years here, it's safe to assume this is my car. You can also look at the rear license plate frame and the rear doors' triangle windows for verification.

I bought it in 2005 from a dealer, used it as needed until 2011, but then my work has changed, I got a company car, and since 2011 I rarely drove this one, probably put less than 1000 miles on it since then, just once in few months, changed oil every year, claybared and waxed every year, etc. Outer paint has some very minor paint chips from normal use – highway driving (nothing serious), but inside looks brand new. And for some who may not be familiar with these, this model was manufactured/assembled in Japan, so it's really solid built.
This car has been babied for years, but no point keeping it and not enjoying, so it needs a new father.

- OEM wheels, still in great condition
- L+R headlight housings

Pregrine, wow how random is gives me goose bumps lol
I usually log in once a year (had 2006 PWP, sold in 2012, was an amazing car and this forum has been awesome) and randomly just chose to log in tonight and saw your recent sale that was posted just a day ago!!!

This guy is amazing, top knowledge about Acura/TSX and his level of keeping the car in shape mechanical+int/exterior is 150%% top notch
And this car literally is like a brand new car, seen in person! and of course has been taken care of well

Hope you are doing great man!
gluck with the sale!

Hi there, thank you,
Sorry, no plans for parting out at this point. But if anything is left after the sale, I'll definitely post it up.

Congratulations and hope you will move on to better things! I thought about it too but I have spent too much time into it I am afraid one day I will regret. You are a brave man!

Can definitely vouch for Peregrine! One of the most knowledgeable members here and I am surprised to find another TSX that has milage as low as mine! You won't regret buying his car! Hopefully the new owner will become a member here too! Good luck with everything!

The previous poster's (quoc) bank loan fell through...

Car is still for sale, and I apologize but I was very busy last few months.

I just replaced all the tires because I found few cracks on the old ones (updated in the spec list in the first post). So all tires are brand new - Zenna Argus UHP. Not very expensive, but I did a lot of research and they have very high reviews, in par with many other known brands. And the car drives beautifully. Already tested at high speeds in rain and dry on turns and they grip as well as my old Falkens did, and they seem quieter, too.
Also replaced wheel centercaps with black CF ones.

And I made few new pictures - May 2017

New Tires

Odometer reading - May 2017

Undercarriage - when replacing tires - end of April 2017

Someone in the past asked if I had a pic of the undercarriage, so while the tires were being replaced, I took one now.
