Nice pictures.

The rims on the concept are awesome. So are the silver Brembo calipers!

Wow, now that I got it to load up, really wasn't worth much. How funny, days after the "production" model is photographed and put all over the net, Acura releases the "Concept" pictures!!?? Why not show the real deal, with all the specs and get people excited about it. I'll never understand their thinking??

There must be a back log of '03s on the dealer lots.

Presumably, it's got to be pretty much finalized at this point. If they're hitting the showrooms in October, they have to be starting to produce them now.

The production model pictures are everywhere iceneedle!! I just think it's stupid that you can't go to acura.com and read up on the production model... 2 months before the official launch date. Nissan.com has info on Cars that are 4-5 months away!!!

It is pretty silly. I seem to remember they did the same thing when the CL was released. The dealers didn't have any info on the thing until it was being rolled off the truck.

Now would be the perfect time to start showing it off. Make a teaser tv commercial, or some web-ad's on Yahoo. It's like they don't even believe in their own products!!

No kidding.

Someone on the TSX board said the official HP number for the new TL will be 270, but did not have any torque information.

Where are the rear turn signals? Don't tell me it's going to be those lame ass blinkers that blink the tail lights. The separate amber flashers on the old TL look nice.

I think based on the way the flash reflected on some pictures, I think the signal will be horizontally placed at the bottom of the cluster.

I doubt it.... they are not discounting at all in the Upstate of SC. I bought one in Jan $3K below sticker. I decided to buy another '03 because the '04 looks cheap, and they wouldn't discount it a penny.

If they don't have stock amber lights, I hope we can swap out the red and replace it with amber.

The '03's here are selling like hotcakes, my Dad just bought one for about 200 dollars below invoice (with no trade-in)

Here in CA they have a "monumental lease offer" on the 03 TL, $359 per month.
