travhouse3000's TSX Wagon (Graphite Luster) ATX

I've only owed this for about a mouth or so but already couldn't resist modifying it when the options are so limitless. I've owed many Hondas and Acuras in the past and loved them but moved to BMW for several years but now, I'm back baby and loving every minute. Enough bs, on to the car. It was a totally stock 2012 with tech package and 72k miles When I bought it for $12,550 plus TTL. So far I've added:
-HPS short ram intake
-Tein S-Tech lowering springs
-ESR SR06 wheels in gloss black with chrome rivets
-Falkin Pro G4 tires (245/40/18)

Parts on the way:
-Tanabe cat back exhaust
-HPS cold air intake extension (convert from short ram air intake to full cold air intake). I wanna see the difference.

Parts in the very near future:
-try to find a quality taillight with modern lighting
-roof rack system
-black out all the trim including the roof rails except the Acura emblems and maybe the chrome trim around the side windows.
-Koni shocks when the stocks are wore out
-Hondata flashpro or just get a dyno tune. I've been looking around austin a little bit but haven't found anything reputable as far as shops go. Any suggestions?
The day I brought it home. Totally stock.
How it sits now.
HPS short ram intake

The research I've done says that it will but there's only one way to know for sure. I'll be the test dummy and let y'all know how it goes. 👍

Cool man. Welcome back! Similar story here, was into Acura's/Honda's, moved to BMW's and bought a wagon TSX last year. Haven't modified it yet, but the urge is strong.

Thanks man. It's good to be back. I miss these cars.

Careful, once you start it's hard to stop.

Maybe Ratchet Racing can help? I don't think he has anything specific for the wagon taillights, except the JDM version (if you like that look ), but he might be able to do some custom LED work for you.

Great start. Your wagon looks great. What are the wheel's offset?
Best of luck on the exhaust, I am looking forward to hearing your results.
