I assume we all know that with the TLX being a critical part of Acura's future over the next few years, they're trying to lure in traditional Acura buyers as well as new younger buyers. The ILX hasn't really captured the interest of buyers, and without the TSX, the burden to attract new buyers to the Acura brand falls to either the TLX or RDX.

I'm curious on the age or age group that some of the people on this forum fall into. Is the TLX skewing younger than the average Acura buyer?

Please post whether you've:
  • Ordered an Acura TLX
  • Picked up your Acura TLX (none of us yet at the time of this original post)
  • Plan to buy (and in approx how many months)
  • Just exploring
As well as your age, and anything else you're willing to share that will allow all of us to paint a more accurate picture on just who exactly is buying the TLX. This can be a fun thread.


Me:

  • 25 years old
  • Plan to buy in about 4 to 5 months (Nov-Dec timeframe)
  • This will be my first Acura (but not my first Honda product -- I should have never sold my Honda S2000)
  • Engineer
  • Technology enthusiast

Summest:

  • Plan to test drive as soon as possible, no matter the color or package.
  • Plan to buy the day I see Basque Red Pearl II is available, unless another color looks better in person.

Average age of people purchasing the car is a bit lower than I was expecting. I thought that it would be further up around 60.

Skew it further: 82
Trading in a silver 2004 TSX with only 43000 miles (We had a 2007 civic hybrid until 2012 which we used extensively to save gas money). TSX was the best driving car we ever owned but the new TLX safety features are very much needed at my age. We ordered a silver 2.4L TLX with Tech, which, if they ever start producing them, will arrive this month. Has anyone seen the slate silver model?

I saw the Slate Silver at the Indy 500 here in Toronto a couple of months ago, they had the body kit with rims on it.
From that first viewing (bearing in mind I only saw it on the one occasion) I actually prefer it to the other silver, its a bit darker, or is the word misty?...anyway its not as shiny so the silver beak and trim don't get lost as they do in the body colour on the current silver.

I found the normal silver hides all the chrome finishing on the body but the new one because its a few shades off that finishing makes for a better look.
