2. Where are you from?(and ethnicity if you feel comfortable)
Swiss and Mexican, mainly.

3. What was your first car?
1988 Ford Taurus Station Wagon, the "panty dropper"

4. Why did you pick an 3rd Gen Acura TL as your car

It my Stepdad's, but I picked it for him knowing he'd put very few miles on it and I'd be able to buy out his lease at the end. I loved the 3G from the moment I saw it and seeing mine, with full aspec on the show room floor sealed the deal.


5. What motivated you to Mod your Acura and what is your favorite mod up to date.

I bought the car and thought "this is a mature person's car, I'm not doing anything to it. Then I created and Acurazine account. Thus far, lowering it has been my favorite mod, visually although the window rollup module is one of my most useful mods.

6. Do you have any future plans for your car?
I never do, but I'm sure I do.

7. Any special thanks that you would like to give (members of the forum, certain shops or individuals that inspired you or helped you)..?
The forum as a whole, if I tried to name the large handful of members that have motivated me and helped me along the way, I'd likely forget a few and feel badly. You know who you are, so THANK YOU!

Holy crap dude. This is probably one of the nicest TL's that I have seen. Well done my friend. Makes me want to take my TL back from my girlfriend.

Why thank you very much! There are a lot of TL's going much further than me with the car, but I always appreciate the compliment. I'm happy with where she's at and now have a 2nd car as a distraction and also to help me from continuing to mod her.

Looks great.

I think we should have a list of the mods in the original post so people can see what you've done to the vehicle.

Hey man I don't know if my eyes are deceiving me because your car is black but do you have some kind of trunk with a bigger "lip" on it??

It's a CSL spoiler...a member on here had made a few of them and I was lucky enough to score one a couple of years ago.
