History
Ever wonder what the Honda Legend's 3.5-liter V6 would do in a smaller car with a slick six-speed manual and without the power-sapping all-wheel drive?
I purchased S-O-V new, in 2007, as a graduation gift for my wife. I considered the BMW 335i and Audi S-4, but both cars are so popular, I wanted her to have something that stood out in a crowd.
2007 Acura TL Type S (Alabaster Silver Metallic)

Modifications

Drivetrain
2.5L IVTEC V-6, 290bhp, cold-air induction, dual-stage intake manifold and high-flow exhaust system. This one is a 6 speed stick with Limited slip dif. S-O-V does 0-60 in 5.1 sec.

It is an Amazing Autobahn Cruiser, does not have a speed governer so I can blast past BMW's, Audi's and Merc's that are speed limited to 155mph
Interior
Full Leather interior with carbon fiber trim, 6 way adjustable power seats, with memory settings for each key FOB. Oh, and full titanium tint; a very nice place to be.
Exterior
None and none planned: The Type S package improves on the TL's already stunning looks by adding a re-designed front end features a larger grille, fog lights relocated to the bumper, front end splitter, black chrome aggressive wheels, side sills, wider side sills and rear fascia diffuser.
Audio
Alpine NAV, 7.1 inch screen, Alpine Hub Processor, 5:1 Surround Sound, DVD, 6 disc Changer, Ipod Interface, Hands-free, blue-tooth voice activated integrated wireless interface. Climate control and navigation are also voice activated
Suspension
High-mount upper and lower A-arm front suspension with rear multilink and stabilizer bars, and 6 piston Brembo Brakes. The Type S is quick around the corners with LOADS of grip.
Wheel and Tire
Standard 17 inch rims with upsized rubber from the orginal 235/45Z to 255/40ZR
