Where are all the TLX's Hiding?

I keep reading about the sales success of the TLX. So where are they? I got mine last October and have been carefully watching in the two states I spend most of my time. In almost 8 months I have seen a grand total of four TLX's on the streets and in parking lots. Counting mine, that makes five. If Acura is really selling them like hotcakes, where are they hiding? Has anyone else experienced this?

2015 Year to date: 18,000
USA/CA dealers = 270 + 50 = 320

So about 56 TLX's per dealer. Your mileage may vary. So one should not expect to see too many for so few in its first year model year.

The day I picked mine up I had not seen any. I was off the lot for about 30 minutes and I met one exactly the same.

There are a few around but I agree that they're not that common.

Last week, I was driving my TLX in traffic and noticed a homeowner watering his grass and he was giving my TLX a really hard stare as I inched forward in traffic past his front lawn. Then I looked in his driveway and saw he had a new TLX in the same color as mine and we both smiled

This weekend, I was buying a new pair of eyeglasses... As I was going into the shop, I noticed a Black TLX SH-AWD in the parking lot... Almost exactly like mine... I noticed that it had brown leather, instead of the ebony. I peered in the window for a closer look and saw an invoice on the back seat with my Optometrist's name on it. We had a great chat (and I got a great discount on my glasses).

This is why I love looking at pictures of other people's TLXs...they are rare in the wild.. I saw one a few weeks ago in a parking lot outside of Razoo's. I parked right in front of it.. (Safety in numbers for a growing population...)

I'm starting to see them all over my area. It's exciting and sad at the same time. I was happy to have one of the rarest cars around! Now, certainly not the case

I live in the Bay Area and I am seeing about 1 to 2 a day now on the major highways. I'm loving my body kit and my new 19" TSW wheels.

I drove from Phoenix to Sedona today and saw one on the trip. Back in February I saw three within the space of a few miles in small town Aurora, Ontario, so they are out there and will become more common as time goes by. I liked being exclusive, but that will not last forever.
