Default New Member Saying HI & Showing some pics!

Hi guys, I've been learking on these forums for a while and I collected many great ideas for my car, and waiting for the right time to show off my car. I flew my dad out from WI to Pennsylvania to pick it up and drive it back, and I got my car delivered on fathers day. It was the exact color combo, I was looking for and AWD for the right price. Prior to me even purchasing my car I had on order the Skipper carbon fiber front lip (just arrived 2 days ago, it took almost 3 months) and my Beatsonic NAV/DVD bypass. Once I got my car, I installed my Beatsonic right away and then my Blendmount Radar setup, I got the windows tinted %20 and carbon fibered overlayed the mid bumper, and the spoiler, I then removed my calipers sand blasted them and painted them Red with a F Sport logo, I then purchased Lumin-X for the rear red reflector, and most recently installed RSR Super Downs (love the drop!) and custom fabbed Invidia full catback exhaust which will be getting the mid pipe resonators cut out and replaced with a straight pipe, and I will be also putting the car on a AWD dyno to see what numbers it puts down (just for fun) and will get video and post the results soon. I also have 19" Vertini Magic Concave rims that i will be putting on the car for winter.

I came from a 07' Acura TL Type S that I modified quite a bit. I like the Lexus alot, but I also miss some of my features that my Acura had. I will get into the pluses and minuses in another thread. Anyways here are some pics!

Not bad modding for only owning the car for 2 months, huh?

Your TL was a nice car but the GS is a big step up! Love the front lip spoiler.

I think that was the best looking TL that Acura ever made. The new one is just

I don't care how advance the technology is, to me the styling is just bad. It lost the sleek and classy looking like that one.

Of course, the GS is just.. RAWR!!

I really like the front lip. Red calipers are a nice touch too!

I just picked up my new to me 13' F Sport. I absolutely agree with your comment about missing some things about my TL. Will be looking forward to your future post on differences. Top of my list is that the TL just "feels" more fun to drive.

You could probably take it to any autobody place to do it. Its pretty simple to do or take off at least. 2 bolts and 1 brake line, then its off. You just have to bleed the brakes, when you put it back together.

Ravspec, but I wouldn't recommend that company to anyone. They straight up lied to me several times, about my eta and packaging and UPS. I will write a seperate review and more pics of my lip in another thread.
