      The revised beak on the TL looks just fine.

      I agree the older one was fugly, but it was toned down and looks nice now in my opinion.

      Remember it's the cool thing to do to hate on Acura on these boards.

      Dude I've owned probably more Honda/Acuras than you if you've owned any. I used to be the biggest Honda fanboy and I'm pretty content with Acura's offerings except for styling and lack of powettrain choices.

      I'm not hating because it's the cool thing, I still own a Honda.... I'm hating because I can voice my legitimate opinion

      In interior is not.

      The exterior is now pretty bland but bland is popular.

      Okay, I'll give you the interior bit, and being a GTI owner like you, I appreciate nice interiors at the sacrifice of a little speed and thrill. 3G TL was Acura automotive perfection as a complete package. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

      I really like that. I'd like to see them try to RDX grill on there as well, if it could be done. I will say the refreshed 'beak' isn't as bad as the original, still doesn't work too well

      I never really liked the grills on the newer Acura lineup, but I never found it that much of a deal either. If I did, I probably wouldn't have bought the car

      All of the upgraded versions or DIY versions look stupid to me anyways, maybe because I'm used to seeing stock setups. Oh well.

      Looks pretty damn good to me!

      It's not just the grille though, the whole design of the TL and TSX just seem wonky, the TL even more so. Shame as the performance and interior are solid.

      I'm gonna agree and say that, after seeing all the aftermarket options available, it would take more than just a different grille to make the TSX look good.

      Not bad, aside from the ginormous Acura emblem.
