Default Grand Sport & My New Daily Driver...

Most have seen the pics of my GS floating around the board, but here is my new daily driver that I picked up last night. Work hooked it up with an awesome deal for me. Pics suck sorry, just snaped a few with the iPhone real quick before heading out today...

2010 Acura TSX

Oh almost forgot going to get a set of H&R Springs and haven't decided on what wheels yet. Wheels will be one of the two below...

BBS LM w/ Dark Silver Centers



SSR Professor SP3 w/ Super Black Coat Centers

did you get the new V6 TSX? if so how is it?

I was looking at those last year but went with the G35 Sedan. More of a drivers car.

BTW still love that JSB GS

BBS LM's do not come in the right size, offset, or bolt pattern for the C6's. They only have fitments for Japense & Euro cars.

I got the 4 banger, if I was going to get a V6 I would have got the TL Type SH. Love the TSX drives awesome and has good power for what it is.

Yes I love my JSB GS, but the gas and miles on the GS is a little much for my commute to work.

Default Mid Ohio School Cars

Drove the previous version at Mid Ohio two years ago..Super little car..they have just replaced them with the newer version (your car)

Speaking to schools head instructor - they had very few problems with the car once they replaced the sway bar links.. I broke mine in the afternoon session and Elliot Forbes Robinson broke his in the morning session.

Once fixed no problem..never replaced and engine or transmission and those were racing school car.

You will love it

Honda makes a decent car. However, never understood why someone in Florida needs a daily driver when they already own the best daily driver in the world. Here's my daily driver:

If I didn't have to drive about 30 miles one way to work and my gas needle didn't move a 1/4 of a tank one way then I would keep driving the GS as a daily...

My Vette's also got daily driven like that but on a real track, not in a parking lot...

Great DD. Save the GS for the fun time behind the wheel. The SSRs in the super black coat might look on your Vette.

LMs have always been one of my favorite rims.

I love the Acura. My previous daily driver was a TL, comfortable and reliable. But then one day I decided to test drive the BMW 335i. That thing can go around highway ramps like nobody's business. The TSX is smaller and lighter so I'll bet it's more nimble than the TL.

My vote is for the BBS. Just has a cleaner look to it. Would look very sharp on the TSX.

I am also leaning towards the BBS as well, they will look nice on the TSX.

The BBS wheels are the way to go IMO. They matched the first Gen TSX so well, and because it basically shares a similar profile with your current gen I'm sure it'll still look awesome. BTW i was under the impression that you were a service writer...what service writer gets to have a company car!??! lucky....
