Here's a few from my quick search!
BIG improvement.

Ever since I saw what the production TLX looked like, seeing one in this exact combination - black with blacked out beak - was a priority to me.

Especially as i'm into "VIP Styling", seeing a VIP Acura TLX in black is a must!

VIP TL:

..mine is a wrap
I thought about trying to remove the beak without removing the bumper, but wasn't sure my hands could get to the clips on the back of the grille without breaking or stripping them.


Going at a slow pace, it probably took me about 2 hours to get the beak out, and about 2 hours to put it back. Yes, a lift did help as you can see the front bumper assembly is sitting on a table. (please excuse the messy garage). I think the most difficult part for me was putting back the Aero kit that goes around the front bumper, as I had to go out and purchase some new double stick tape. Other than that, it went pretty smooth. Just go slow and take your time. There are lots of push clips that can break easily. I ordered an extra package of push clips prior to doing this job, but fortunately, didn't break any.

You're right. I found plenty of other colors, but not blue. That's why I've asked. Thanks.

Based on these pics that member andre12dbsi led me to online, Project Black and Blue shall commence forthwith.

On the docket:
  • Painted grille insert
  • Grille surround wrap
  • Window trim wrap
  • Rear reflector tint and trim wrap
  • Window tint (35%?)
  • Anthracite 18" wheels.
For consideration:
  • Roof wrap and fin paint/wrap
  • Rear emblem blackout or removal
  • Tail light tint (just a light smoke)

I started small with wrapping the chrome around the rear reflectors and tinting the lenses with some light smoke LaminX.

Yep - no doubt it will be a good look. Good luck with the process and post some before and after pics when you're done. Thanks!
