    Progress of my car.

    Here's the progress of my TSX. I've been doing a little mod here and there since I got in 2006. Just wanted to share with you guys and gals how it looks like now.

    When it was stock.

    Very nice. I like those rims, they look good on your car.

    Can't imagine how quickly a car that low would be destroyed around here though. Stupid snow.
    There's no apology for stupid, boy!

    Nice....my next modification would be the removal of the front plate!

    Everyone knows it's an Acura froom the "A" in the grill.

    Thanks! I just left the front plates ever since I got the car. I didn't want to put the regular plates on.

    Now the regular plates are on and its been raised a little.

    Just installed a front strut tower bar and a rear sway bar.

    I can't say that I'm a fan of what you've done- it looked better stock IMO. As long as you're happy with it, that's all that matters. Enjoy it!

    It looked great before you lowered it.

    As with most anything, I think it looks much better lowered.

    Looks pretty nice. I think it's lowered about an inch too much for such small rims, especially the front. The wheel wells are way to big left to right making the wheels look very small. It might be the wheel color but I guess it's the car. Very nice car though.

    Nice ride.....that darker one in the very last pic reminds me of a B2 for some reason too

    At any rate, your ride and others like it sure do look better than the new TSX's
    When you turn your car on....does it return the favor?

    ....before Acura's became wierd. Don't like it lowered that much, epitomizes 'ricers' to me.

    If it is a 2006, the front shocks should still be covered by the warranty. They appear to be leaking fluid.

    Thanks for the compliments and critiques.

    Actually, I have raised the car about an inch or so. There is about a finger width of wheelgap left.
