Did you noticed TLX design flaw? Try to notice the front fenders next to front pillars when it meets front door behind side mirror. There's no continuity on the fender panel and door panel behind side mirror.

For me there is a discontinuity.

Feel with your hands and share your thoughts?

Not the best way to go about the cut, but then again who are we to say that? Maybe they have some very valid reasons for doing it.

All I can imagine is removal/installation taking a little longer than the average fender out there.

I'm not exactly sure what you are referring to here. Is it one of the body contour lines?

Yes. The fender panel on the front pillar where it transition into the door panel behind side mirror.

Looks fine to me. One thing I do like about the TLX is that it has an almost coupe like profile. Long hood, short deck, wide stance.

The other I have noticed - headlight and hood where the grill, hood and lights meet. Could have been a little more flush. But the abrupt change allows for water to get airborne instead of flowing up and on to the hood.

you know what i did notice today? the gap on the hood of my car looks like crap! the front lines up fine, but along the side next to the fender on the drivers side there's a noticeable (to me) gap where on the passenger side it's much more close. it may sound nit picky but this is a brand new car and i'm probably going to have the dealership adjust it. anyone else have that?

I haven't seen this on my TLX, but it should be easily adjusted to your liking at the dealer. :)

Don't you think that is due to headlight alignment? the driver side is bit more tucked inside to avoid direct beam to on coming traffic? I saw similar issue with my Accord too.

Noticed it at a twin model on the lot of my dealership. Will check tomorrow others, when it's in for A1 service. If its an issue with just mine, will have them rectify it!

I started a thread about this issue on Acurazine. I had a big difference in the tolerance between the driver and passenger side where the hood met the quarter panels. I'll post some pics I took when I sent them to my dealer. I also had an issue with the headliner being wrinkled above the rear window (My tint guy pointed it out to me before he tinted it, that way the dealership couldn't blame him for the imperfection.). I also had a lump on the 12 o'clock position of the steering wheel, just on the back part where my fingers curl behind the wheel.

My dealership fixed all the problems, including some vibrations I got at speeds above 65mph. They almost refused to take care of the vibrations, trying to blame my aftermarket wheels. I told them that I had the wheels balanced three times in a two week period just to rule out the wheels. I bought them brand new and I have warranty if they have issues, so I wasn't worried about that. They did ask for me to bring in my stock wheels to work on it, but they ended up working on it with my aftermarket wheels on anyway. So I wasted a trip there dropping off the wheels.

I am having one issue that is reoccurring. It only seems to happen on long drives, pretty much anything over 30 miles. My TPMS system seems to freak out and just crash while on the highway. The first time it happened I was horrified, thinking that I had gotten a nail or something in my brand new tires. There was no issue with the wheels or tires alike. I had my wheel shop double check that the sensors were working properly and that they hadn't fudged up installing them. Oddly enough, when I turn off the car and back on again, it resets the system and I can see the psi on the center of the gauge cluster. When the system wigs out, I get -- dashes like that where it would normally show the psi, on all four wheels. I'll get a message in the center cluster saying that my TPMS system is not working. I then get a message on the Nav screen, "Tire Pressure Monitor System:32". My dealership cannot recreate this issue, I feel like it's because it only seems to happen on long drives. I showed them the photos I took of the problem, but they still can't get to the bottom of it.
