From TL to TLX...

I purchased an '09 TL SH AWD back in '11 and drove it until Nov. '17. I traded my wifes '08 TSX in for a "14 Lexus GS 350 F Sport (for me), and then had my wife drive the TL. A week before Christmas, she unfortunately had an accident with it, and it was totaled. Thank God, she was unharmed and only shaken up. The TL did a great job in protecting her, and we're both grateful. With not much time to get her a new vehicle, I found a few locally and got her a CPO '18 TLX A Spec., sadly with just FWD. But, she loves the car (as do I) and so we're lucky to stay in the Acura family.

My only regret is is not being able to now trade in my Lexus for a SH AWD A Spec:-)

Sorry to hear about the accident. Glad everyone is okay. That picture is tough to see. I love your new car though. That Bellanova White A-Spec to me is the best looking car on the roads right now.

Sorry to hear about the accident, but am glad to hear she's ok. That was a pretty terrible looking accident.

Cares can be replaced, as you have done, loved ones cannot. Safe and happy motoring! I have to agree with Someguy11 about the looks of the Bellanova/platinum white ASpec! I may be a tad biased.

Glad your wife is okay after the accident. That new ASpec is nice! What interior did you get?

PS: That's is one odd looking Acura dealership

Thank you..the interior is Ebony. Yeah, that dealer (Acura of Westchester) still hasn't conformed to the corporate look:-)
