The car looks awesome. I'm a fan of the black color for this model. The only thing I'd change are the wheels.

It's Graphite Luster Metallic, but yeah it's black really. @Ghost: I am seriously looking at 20 X 10's for it. I looked at the same for the 2010 ZDX, but ceased when it became clear I must have a 2013. Now that I do, I am looking again. I am no expert when it comes to sizing, offset, and the like. I want to be sure there is no "rubbing" in the wheel well, so any advice would be appreciated. I "think" 20 x 10's will work/fit, but again I'd like help in that regard. I think 20 X 10's would look so good on this ZDX. And thanks for the compliments, folks. I am a ZDX zealot, love this example, and can't wait for the weather to change so I can get to work on it cosmetically.

Not sure if it's an optical illusion or it is the angle of the photo, but that rear wheel seem to have a lot of positive camber?

It's the angle and shadows now that I look at it closer I see what you mean. It was just aligned several weeks ago.

Are those new OEM leather front ZDX seat in black?

I like the contrasting colors because it matches the dash and door panels, however you need to change the back seat to complete the look.

i wonder why the ACURA text was removed in rear. I see it that way from your first pic I assume you didnt remove it
I have debadged in the past but I would have done it all IF AT ALL. just pondering.

I do have a question though. Why the dealer plate frame on the car?
I usually pull over and remove those on the first drive home OR insist that I am not taking delivery of a car with free advertising.

The 2013 does not have the text to which you refer. My 2010 did, but not the 2013's. Not sure which model year they did away with it. License plate frame? Simple good will. They are the only Acura dealer in the state. The service manager has been very, very good to me. I've only been able to purchase one Acura from them in all my years, but do have service done there, so my way of being a good partner I guess.

Very nice about the dealer.
I had more than one bad experience at the local place, Mile High Acura, and in general never good with any car dealers. I'm also a 'serial debadger' so my mind goes there first.

​​​​​New to me 2012 does have Acura letters so I assumed all MY did.

You have a beautiful FLEET of vehicles! Cheers!

As have I with dealers, but I don't hold a grudge, and I do hold my ground. I have two dreams cars, the S2K and the NSX...This S2000 is special. I've known it since it was new and the original owner was kind enough to sell to me when he was ready to part with it....The car is still just south of 17,000 miles...

LC,

Don't wait on the ZDX. I flew to Cincinnati and drove mine back to Omaha.

9,000 miles tonight I've logged behind the wheel of my Z. I love this car. The growl of the 3.7 is real and smooth and coupled with SHAWD, it is a blast to drive when pushed enthusiastically, especially in S. One day I'll put 20 X10's on, but for now it's good to go.
