So im stuck at a point on which car I should get. It's between the TL, an Audi, or Evo. I love the acura/honda line, and I loved the TL's when they first came out. I was acurazone or whatever that site is called, and I saw a few threads. One was about the comptech supercharger, then I saw the n/a threads, and the whole hondata ecu thing, and now a turbo kit possible. The question is this. For those of you who was in the same boat as me, why did you choose the TL over a turbo car?

the reason i chose my tl was due to the fact my rsx hit a pole and a few bushes. plus there not to many aftermarket parts which means more money in my pocket. the tl is a great car but not that fast. the audis are nice looking cars and many parts are available. it all depends on what your looking for speed (evo & audi) or luxury tl and audi.

for real...i really like the TL, i want the OEM kit if I do get one, and black 19's. What mods are out for it? Intakes, Headers, Exhausts. what about the hondata came out for the ECU yet?

They have intake... one type of exhaust, but you can always do custom... headers are welded on, but there's a company that makes cats that can somewhat replace the headers. From what I know hondata is working on something for the TL

they'll pass smog emission, on the auto I think they it made 13whp and and 17ft lbs, and on the 6spd, it made 30whp and 23ft lbs... Very good numbers but the product cost a lil over 1G

No... especially if it's a auto. 230whp is with intake and exhaust, and some other mods but if it's a manual, I don't think it's up to the 230whp stock either

I went from at RSx Type s to a Tl and with the little speed decrease was made up with the navi and all the cool toys in my mind plus the decrease insurance wasnt much but about 300-400 in texas but i would recomend the TL-S which is a cool upgrade from the RSX-s

Sick of tuning and pouring money in the DC5 even though I miss it and hated to part with it. I decided to go VIP style and get the '07 CBP TL Type-S. :shady: :pimp

I'll tell you what is 'no joke' on the TL type S ...its the INSANE torque steer when shifting into 2nd and 3rd. If you do test drive one of these and go all out on the throttle, just make sure there is plenty of room (10ft.) of space to your right side on the road or you will go into a ditch or hit another car or something. A death grip on the steering wheel works too.

I just traded in my RSX for a TL because I wanted an 07 TL type-S but didn't qualify for the loan since i Was taking a $4,500 bath on my RSX loan, which 2 grand I get back from the aftermarket warranty. But I just got a job making alot of cash so it was time to step up in class. So since I didn't qualify for the loan I wanted I picked up an 05 TL with 20K miles and warranty is bumper to bump for 100K/7 years. And this dealer was giving me 2.5k more for my RSX they anyone else. Which also since the 09 TLs shoudl be redeisgned the TL has a much higher resell value then the RSX. The RSX is a loser when it comes to resell and I want the 09 TL-S.

Im thinking of trading my 06si for an 08 type S. Im starting to fall inlove with this car. I wanna test drive one with the paddle shiffter but no dealer around here has one.
