You have to remember that our friend PikesPeak sells Acuras for a living. He has to be positive and upbeat about this new model.
So many of us have been enthusiastic about the TL and its progression for a long time. It has been an awesome car to own for almost all of us and our brand loyalty is what makes being a moderator on this forum so much fun. However, Acura has decided to change the game and to try and appeal to a different audience. For the brand, I hope this either works out or they learn fast. We can only hope, as loyal customers, that the grill dies inside of one model year. I have seen pictures of the new JDM grill on the Honda Legend. That doesn't look bad at all. Let's hope the Inspire grill looks fine and that the market is open to getting rid of that monstrosity the USDM market has to look at.
