    Looks like "Batman" has a charming effect on everyone he meets online.

    Nonetheless, its a nice car. My wife had an Accord Coupe with the same motor mated to a 6-speed manual, it was a blast to drive. Great fuel economy and lots of power.

    Hmmm...so now your wife's rig is a TL-S?

    My missus is hot for those too. Seems a little short on backseat space for the kids though. Shame, they're fookin' sweet...

    Black-on black-plus black with the gun metal wheels



    I just wish they had them before I bought my 03

    I didn't like the new TL until I seen the type-S a-Spec B/B/B W/gun metal

    Re: New Car....

    Those are great cars... the honda engine pulls pretty nicely up in the high rpms... only problem with that car is a pretty squishy suspension feel (for a 'sport' sedan) and TERRIBLE torquesteer, especially at WOT upshifts at high RPMs. For your wife, should be fine though. Also, I imagine you got her an automatic, so the torquesteer may not be as pronounced... I've only drive the 6speed variant.

    Re: New Car....

    Kerect on the automatic...I had read that about the torquesteer. The paddle shifters are dumb too...but using the shifter in 'manual mode' is fun! My wife drives like a middle aged lady so she'll never notice! (I full expect some kid to come up to here when she gets out of the car and say, "Hey...how come you're driving your son's car?") Cracks me up!

    Are you serious?

    That is like saying 'oh yeah, I want a mustang so bad, but not the GT or the cobra. I want the v6 automatic...'




    although I guess saying you wanted a mustang at all would be retarded.

    So the more ponies got you scared?











    But on a semi serious note I got a 03 tl (with nav and Onstar) and drive a bunch. I could honestly say that after 5 hours the stiffer springs would piss me off, since after 8 hours the standard springs/ride/seat got me to the edge.

    Although I have a Gen 2.5 and not a Gen 3 so it's different I'm sure

    But aesthetically the new TL-S A-Spec B/B/B is SOOOOO hot and wish it was out before I bought my 03 since I didn't like the new TL until then
