Thanks! Yeah, it looks pretty aggressive in black, ha. Couldn’t get the red seats. Not sure re: mods yet. Going to either do a ceramic coat first and/or wrap the front in paint protection film before thinking about mods. Cheers!

Congratulations !! Seems the new TLX has that affect on people. I was at the dealer for an oil change and left with a 2021, trading in my 2020 TLX.

Congratulations and welcome. Nice to see another Black one on the roads...mine's an Advance.

Ownership Hint: Be mindful of where the wheels are. They're wide enough that there is just a very small cushion from the tire sidewall to protect them. It is super easy to pick up a case of curb rash if I'm not watching carefully.

My local wheel guy charges $250 to redo an Advance style wheel. Not sure what it would cost to repair one of the black finished wheels used on the A-Spec, so be careful!

Thanks! She looks mean in black haha. Yes, well aware of the wheels since I had a couple of curb rashes on the Accord Sport ones. Gotta be careful for sure. Parking structures and some of those tight turns for instance in poorly designed ones are my kryptonite. I think a valet kid did it once to my Accord as well. I rarely make any mistakes outside on a curb/parallel parking...knock on wood. It’s a little cheaper here to get it repaired but who knows with this current wheel. Cheers.

Cars in the 70s had "curb feelers". We could help make them in fashion again !

Ha re: curb feelers! I think even a bird’s eye/360 camera like mom’s crappy Nissan Rogue has could help?
