Pearl A-Spec - clear tinted, plate holes plugged

Got my TLX tinted initially with 35% but hated that I couldn't see the sexy red leather from the outside. So I went back to the tint shop and had them replace the tint with 80% all around (front windshield included) and it gave me exactly the look I wanted.

Also bought hole plugs from the hardware store that I painted with touch up paint. Still working on a homemade removable license plate frame using L brackets and magnets.

Great looking car! Mine looks exactly the same lol. I bought some custom painted bumper plugs but the ones I bought would require me to drill larger holes into the bumper which I don't want to do.

Make your own like I did. $1 for a pair of hole plugs (3/16 size) and $10 Honda branded touch up paint. You still need to drill the holes to a larger 3/16 but it isn't much larger than the dealer holes (5mm I think).

Traded in my 2016 TLX and got the 2019 version.

Looks like it was cold outside. A bit nippy.

I just got my 2019 TLX i4 with tech on Thursday. Nice car.
