Yo first off clean TL, lovin the black on black, anyways couple of questions, I got a TL-S I just picked up, I just want to know what Kind of Tein Suspension you went with was it the Luxury tech or the Sport Tech... I'm getting 19's also and want it slightly lower then what you have so I'm trying to find out what Set-up of Teins you went with....keep up the good work though, much props so far, good future plans also

Infiniti VS Acura.......F**K it the G35 is hot but is a sports coupe. The TL is a work of art weighing a Significant amount more and still haulin a$$. Being bias to four doors the TL gets my vote. Just waitin till the price drops to the low 20s and that thing is mine! Six speed of course.

hey man, car is looking nice, do you have the Bose system or does this year not come with it.

I said sun damage because i saw the comment u left for another guy about his bumper being faded. Wax should keep the whole body in excellent condition. A few years ago we had an 89 Toyota Cressida, the paint job looked like it was an year old because of the wax that the owner use to put on it.

hey man. I think u should get rid of the bra. If you just polish and wax ur car like once every two months, you would not have to worry about any sun damage. My car has never been garaged and has always stayed out in the houston sun. The first owner took good care of it and thats why the paint is still in good condition. But thats just IMO. Keep it if u like it like that.

the bra is gone? you're talking about sweet 19" rims... NOW you're getting dangerous my friend. This could be a real threat. Keep it up!

redline hit the nail right on the head. "bros" and visors are for tools. "bros" prob get moisture under them and ruin the paint also. you should race redline since you were saying you wanted to do a d15b7 1.5L engine swap. have fun treading lightly in the 19s.

yo sexy car, but remember...bras are for tits, not cars. years down the road, your gonna have a tan line on the car's nose.

Nice rims, car looks cool, but ditch those rediculous 80's style window visors. I had no idea they still made those.

Thanks for looking at my ITR. Those rims look great on your TL - really go with the car well. Not a fan of the bra, but I understand you have to keep the paint fresh :)

thanks for the comment on my RSX. I think you'll be happy with the P-Zeros. Don't listen to any haters on here man, they're just jealous of the TL.

i love the TL. The wheels look good. I don't like the tires, I have to stick by Yokohama, Toyo, or some Michelin Pilot Sport Cup. Anyways, I think the car looks sick and you can't go wrong if you keep it clean.

holy crap look at that engine cover.. makes the engine stand out. I think a bunch of polished, chrome, and carbon fiber or kevlar would make that look so sweet, and whats up with driving with your trunk popped?

The Teins I have ride nice. They deliver when I need them to on the track when road racing and auto-X'ing, and can soften up to an almost touring car type ride on the streets and freeways. Because of the racing I do with my car, I upgraded the springs all around to 2kg stiffer than what normally comes with them. Ride quality isn't too much stiffer in feel, but the differance is definitely noticable on the track with faster times, and MUCH less body roll. I've had my Teins 3 years now and by far the best investment I feel I've made with my car, not a single complaint with them. Thanks for checking out my ride as well!!

Awesome TL you have, I love them. I like you you've done with it so far, only changing out all that really needs to be with one, the wheels and suspension and what a fine choice you picked for both. I haven't seen the A-Spec kit for the TL, but I know the ones for the RSX and TSX, so I'd imagine it's similar for the TL and will look way sweet once you get it. Classy with the nose bra too. Keep up the great work on this great car!!

liking the ride... need to lose the front bra though IMO, but other than that real clean and a good start just keep it going.

well the rusty look is because i had my headers professionaly installed by tards. they said the dull black it came in was boring and that shiny low temp eng paint paint would be better.
