    New ride

    New ride, and a new model for 2007.

    2007 Acura TL Type-S. 286 horsepower which is a little more than the 3's (235Bhp), and sounds a lot different from a Japanese sports car. I asked them not to included the front plate holder, but they did anyways.

    Still, a nice car, lots of pickup. Never seen on the road either, so I feel like one of the first. Has a 48 month lease too.

    Well, it's a 48 month lease (or did I sign 36, dammit, I have to go check now), but the retail is about $39,000. A fully loaded TL here is about $2-3,000 cheaper.

    Thanks to Rico for that link in the PM. I'll check it out.

    I'll probably go out, and get pics tonight.

    It handles like a charm, though I feel more bumps in it than the 3. I don't know exactly how sharp it'll turn, but the salesman said it can turn pretty well against the BMW.

    Great, it won't be long until the Honda spies come snooping around looking for evidence of abuse.

    nice ride, nice ride, you made a good choice.

    Just don't let that i-VTEC power go to your head.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    I wouldn't have mind a 6-speed manual, but there were none on the lot, and I'd have to pay for shipping costs, and for some reason, wouldn't get the same deal.

    I'm happy though with it. The paddles still show a lot of the performance.

    Great choice. My friend has the '06 Acura TL in Pearl white with Parchment Leather, I love that combination.
