I was just thinking about the thread title and then saw your post... if anything, he just gained his V card. And that card is good for 1000s of smiles a day.

Honestly, the car barely attracts attention & just blends in, unless someone knows what it is. I'm officially a fan favourite at work with the older guys though..

Miata or Boxster > SLK
And that's coming from the resident MBFanBoi #1. Unless it's an AMG SLK, but then you're back into a boxer dropper.

Lol, anecdote: I had a droptop base Camaro a couple years ago when I was in Miami. Thing got more female attention than I'd ever expect tbh. Not sure if it was Miami or the car... When I had the base Challenger a in 2016, it was literally all dudes asking about the car LMAO

my initial impression was that it helped a lot with throttle response...not sure overall, car feels fast...but it always has.

So that's an untouched TB?

They're pretty cheap brand new but I found one for less than $100 CDN, gonna snag it & send it off to get ported with the money saved. Throttle response is ridiculous supposedly once ported.

Damn if they are new and not used I say you should jump on it. Brand new over $600 once you factor in shipping.

Throttle response was definitely much better after my 90mm Mamo ported. The tune helps some too though I am sure.

That's who I spoke to about the porting work, everyone has great reviews.

As for the grilles, they're used for that price. Think I'd have to see them in person to be completely sold on them. Here's a pic if anyone is curious what they look like.

I really like how those grills are not flat black like people paint them but still dark enough to make the cadillac wreath stand out more than it does on the stock chrome grill.

Haha. No... no coupe bashing. My buddy has been thinking about a CTS-V coupe and asked me if the seats folded down. Told him I thought they did in the coupe but that I would confirm (and google searches create confusion on the topic)... so of course I came to an Acura forum to confirm

Soooo.... do the coupe seats fold?

I've considered a CTS-V coupe, as they are more common than anything else up here. Well... At least as far as 6MT versions are concerned. We never got the Vagon up here, as far as I'm aware anyway. The coupe is a very cool car, but I think I'd prefer the practicallity of the sedan a bit more. I think my coupe days officially ended when I sold my '99 Civic SiR and picked up my current TL.

Crazy how that works. I see more wagons than coupes and I probably only see 5 wagons a year. Whenever I see a CTS-V it's typically a sedan...
