About

2006 Acura TSX manual w/Nav - Silver
Great car...perfect balance between space, fun-to-drive, speed & economy, handling & ride and luxury
Nearly perfect steering for a fwd
Best shifter of any manual I've owned (almost as perfect as a Miata)
Fantastic everyday car...

Specs

- 2.4L 4cyl w/VTEC valve timing adjustment - 205hp, 163lb/ft
- 0-60 in around 7.4, which is not quick enough but is generally quick enough (I live in NJ, who am I racing, cops?)
- 27mpg in daily mixed driving (and I drive it like I stole it...I've managed to get 30+ when 'behaving' myself and avoiding the upper ranges on the tach)

Factory Options

- Navigation system (one of the best out there, in my opinion...the touch screen is super-intuitive, you barely have to take your eyes off the road and the voice commands actually work well...plus, the screen is within easy reach and you don't have to deal with a stupid dial or joystick to make menu selections)
- Manual trans - the TSX only had two options, Nav and Transmission...well, and color.

Mods

- 18x8 Sport Edition wheels with Sumitomo HTRZ III summer tires, bigger footprint and lower unsprung weight than stock
- Continental WinterContact M&S tires on the stock 17x7 wheels for the winter
- Solid stainless steal shift knob, provides a bit more leverage to make shifting even smoother and just feels great in your hand!
- Infinity BassLink, the stock sound system is decent but needed more bass, rather than replace the whole thing I just disconnected the 'subs' in the back deck (really 6x9's with a low-pass filter in the amp sending only 100hz and under to them) and connected up the BassLink from my Audi. The system is now lacking a bit in mid-bass, but has a bit of punch to it (I don't need tooth rattling volume).
- Will soon be getting a stiffer rear sway bar, as the body rolls a bit much for my taste...might upgrade springs/shocks to take car of the brake-dive, but it's not a high priority.
