Reason: I like to consider myself as the most meticulous car owner of all time! I take extreme pride in my vehicle. It is always fully detailed as I do it at least once a week. I have been a proud Honda / Acura owner since 2000. Every service and preventative maintenance is always completed in a timely manner. I maintain this vehicle with pride and joy. Without the resources made available to me via ACURAZINE I don't know what I would do. Thank you to everyone on here. Somehow, you have all been able to assist at some point to get my car looking and running the way it does. My vision has always been to have a clean and stealthy modded car. I will never get rid of it. I plan on driving it until you cannot get parts for it anymore! It will always be in my collection! 04 A-SPEC 6MT FTW!

I bought my TL back in 2007. Since then I completely transformed my car into what was once a dream now a dream come true. This work was done by myself with my own hands. A lot of blood, sweat and tears when into this build. Everything you see is done with meticulous care. I'm so nuts about it that you will see me every weekend waxing my car.. Even the rims and brakes get waxed, yeah.. not kidding. There's a huge sense of pride when it comes to my car. I love my TL! Win or lose, I'm glad I had the chance to showcase my car.

I know a lot of people aren't fans of the 4G. I picked up my WDP when it first came out in '09. Started out looking at the 2G tsx when I was offered to test drive the 4G TL and the rest is history. Love this car more and more as the years pass. Met a lot of new people/friends with this car and hope that it'll continue!
