My new obsession!
 
Hey everyone! Long time no post!! Recently bought a 2004 Acura TL Anthracite Metallic with Ebony Interior with 36k on the clock. Let the modding begin! I already bought the a-spec kit for her (installed) and put in VLED's interior. Tires are here but rims are on backorder :( It is such a tease to have to see those tires just sitting in my garage! Megan Coilovers are also sitting in the garage until the arrival of the rims... Anyway..

First day as owner:

Also replaced stock rotors and pads with these + ceramics.

Nice! I always liked that body style. So did you sell your Jeep? Also, what rims are you going with?

No I can't bring myself to sell the jeep! Now she is my work/beach vehicle. We will see how she does with the 22's on the beach! Just installed new fog lenses and HIDS on her actually.!
These are the rims I am getting for the ac.

Thanks man! The lenses are from a BMW (ZKW) and they replace the stock projectors. They provide a better cutoff/more output.

Thank you! yeah I got ar eal good buy on the A-spec kit it actually hugs the stock bumpers so it's not too difficult to put on! The drop and rims should really set it off nicely.

I'm waiting on the rims to arrive (backordered). Once I install the coilovers, I'll need an alignment and I don't feel like having to do it twice! But it is awful tempting... Coilovers and staggered tires just sitting in my garage collecting dust! Boo!! Well lately I've just been doing minor upgrades. I am installing smoked rear sidemarkers (to match the front) today. Also she is getting tinted today! That's been a long time coming, I feel like I'm driving around in a fish bowl! I'll update this thread once I get more things installed!
