What's up all. I have been MIA since I sold my '10 TL about 3 years ago (https://acurazine.com/forums/4g-tl-p...-works-800947/). I recently picked up a '15 TLX w/tech. I was originally looking for white or silver with black interior. Then I saw one with brown interior and thought it gave the interior a nice upscale look compared to the black.

This forum has been a little bit quieter as most enthusiast have sold their Type-S and probably waiting until the new Type-S arrives.

Just thought I'd share my new (used) car. It is familiar territory for me without the v6 power but I do love how nimble it feels. Overall goal was to just inject some visual appeal to the car and add some noise when I push it. No plans for lowering it or anything else.

Mods:
- Gloss Black Vinyl applied to front shield, bottom chrome strips (front and back), bottom rear bumper (had to add some visual pop back there since there are no exhaust tips)
- Matte black trunk lip
- Smoked taillight (white part only)
- Plastidip emblems in the back
- Takeda intake
- 20" Niche Targa Wheels Stock form

Thank you! Here are some additional pics of the back and the inside where I just wrapped all the wood trim. I had some cf look vinyl left from a previous car so I just decided to use it.

I like what you've done to the back!

How have you found the car overall?

Holy shit, those rims are clean as fuck - that panda look is dope. Any plans to throw on some tints? I have a white TLX too, with limo tints on the back, 35% on the front (lowest CA legal) and the black/white contrast looks super mean but subtle.
