2003 TL Type S A Spec - LINK

Here is my submission!
I worked very hard for this car and try to keep it perfect.
I'm always trying to tweak and keep my car 100%.
I go over crevices with Q-tips... That might give you an idea of what I'm about with this car
In the few months I have been on AZ I have learned so much! - thanks so much 01TL4TL, fsttym1, and everyone!
I guess you can say I'm a bit of an AZ addict - I'm pretty much on AZ on my phone whenever I have a chance...

I'm submitting a nomination for ib18c1's Acura 3G TL:
Link to Profile:

What he started off with (Evolution Thread Pt1:

What he has come to over these years (Evolution Thread Pt2:

Just one of the coolest HDR-car pictures I have seen of his:

(1) He's been a valuable asset to the AZ 3G TL forums as he has tested and tried most modifications available for the TL, setting an example not only in terms of performance but also aesthetics over the past several years.
(2) He has gone through more sets of wheels than I have oil changes, test-fitting different styles and fitments of wheels, providing valuable information for the rest of the AZ forum.
(3) He has provided numerous video clips and photographs of his TL, once again valuable to the 3G TL community.
(4) He's been published as the cover-feature car in a magazine before.
(5) He has supported/attended numerous AZ meets and has grown social ties with many AZ members.
(6) He's a nice/generous/modest friend.
(7) I'll think of others later on ... lolll

***If you want to read more on the progression of his car over the years, check out his evolution threads (links posted above)***

I nominate CLtotheTL32's Storm Trooper - I mean 04 TL.
Link to Profile:

Username: CLtotheTL32

Real Name: Tyler

Car Model: 2004 Acura TL A/T non-navi

Mods: Full A-Spec kit, TEIN S-Tech Springs, Gunmetal A-Specs, Blacked-out headlights, Blacked-out 07-08 Base Tails, other goodies

Reason: I was nominated by civicdrivr so I can't speak for him, but I'm an active member who frequently sets up and attends meets in and out of the state. My TL has the white/black theme but the Gunmetal A-Specs balance the overall look between those two colors. I enjoy talking about my car and working on it, but I value the friends I've made on Acurazine more than the actual car itself. Oh and also because I have the best license plate

Real Name: Mike

Car Model: 2009 Acura TL FWD Tech

Mods: 20" Volk GT30 staggered, Eibach Pro Kit, Factory Lip Kit, Tinted Tails & Reflectors, Custom LEDs in rear reflectors, JNC cleared headlights, Takeda Intake, ATLP Exhaust

Reason: Even though its only an FWD , Mike is represntin the 4G TL like no other. His taste has proven to be liked by many when he won the "Simple and Clean" award at Acurafest 2010. Mikes 4G is definitely an example of how the 4G should be done, it has inspired some future mods for me and Im sure it will for others.

Not too much longer before he reaches "Game Over" status

I am nominating Murph145....below is a link to his thread.

Username: Murph145

Real Name:

Car Model: 2007 CBP Acura TL-S

Mods: XLR8 Quad Exhaust - LED DRL's, LP, Backup & Interior Lights - 30% tint windows - TSW Willows 19"x8" & 19"x9.5" + 40 - drilled slotted rotors - yellow fogs - dropped on megans -....more im sure

Reason: I am nominating Murph145 not only for his mods, but the unique color of this car with the mods he has done. Nowadays in magazines, car shows, and even on the road two primary color cars people choose to mod is black or white. It's easier to work with something someone has already started, but it's even harder to start something that never began! x2 for being 2 steps in front of the game by choosing a unique color to start with. This is truly one unique 3G TL-S!
