Bring the fucking TSX wagon over here from Europe and keep the 6spd manual in it.

I will buy it.

The top of the grill where it meets the hood looks so much like the previous gen Toyota Solara.

BTW, the idea of the 06 TSX front which looks like the Toyota Solara came from my wife. I was looking at the new front end and I was thinking that it looks like something, but I couldn't come up with the car. My wife came over and looked at the pic, and said Toyota Solara. I was like .

That't the car I was thinking of....Damn!!!!

If anything, they should have made the grill more prominent a la the TL. Better get the 05s while you can.

I am so with you here! I like my 04 TSX grill better. This new grill makes it look so generic and bland. Yup, it does remind me of a Solara.... ouch. I wish they would have made the grill more like the TL's - I LOVE that grill.

Otherwise, I like the other new changes, though they are pretty subtle.

You can see the bulbs in the middle of the reflectors.

From Rsportscars.com:

Acura Unveils TSX A-SPEC Concept at SEMA

Acura unveiled the TSX A-SPEC Concept at the 2005 SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada. This extensively modified TSX is a unique project built to explore the next level of performance accessory possibilities for Acura's popular sedan.

Based on the TSX sport sedan, the one-of-a-kind A-SPEC Concept is aggressively styled with wide fenders, custom 19-inch wheels and Pirelli tires that combine to increase the track by 0.8 inches (20 mm). The front and rear fascias have been redesigned for improved ventilation and downforce. Air is directed under the car with two-part carbon-Kevlar underbody diffusers and the new rear bumper incorporates dual center-mounted exhaust pipes. On the trunk is a custom carbon-Kevlar rear spoiler. The side sills are extended and the headlights and taillights are revised to blend with the A-SPEC Concept's unique styling. Suspension changes include A-SPEC performance springs and shocks along with oversize Brembo brakes. These track-tuned pieces are designed to enhance the TSX's handling in demanding conditions. The custom exhaust and intake systems combine to increase horsepower and torque and give the TSX A-SPEC Concept thrilling engine and exhaust notes.

Inside, the TSX A-SPEC Concept boasts race-ready Recaro seats. The front and rear seats are upholstered in premium black leather with suede inserts. Aluminum accents on the dash, steering wheel and shifter combine with carbon-Kevlar panels on the doors and center console for a high-tech, purposeful look.

Seems like this is just the 2-year-old Accord Sport Study with an Acura badge slapped on it and different wheels (which look a lot like my Ron Jons ):
