    Acura TL A-Spec

    Acura is re-launched its Acura Factory Performance program as Acura A-SPEC, the company announced at the 2003 SEMA. When launching the program at last year's SEMA show with the announcement of a performance kit for the Acura RSX Type-S, Acura called the program Acura Factory Performance. The name change was made to brand Acura's program and differentiate it from Honda Factory Performance, a similar program for Honda vehicles.

    Acura also announced that an A-SPEC kit for the 2004 TL would be available in November of 2003. The kit features track-tuned shocks and springs that lower the car by approximately one inch. These suspension modifications combine with performance brake pads (on automatic transmission-equipped models) 18x8.5 alloy wheels fitting with Yokohama high performance tires to provide a firm, aggressive driving experience while still maintaining comfort during every day driving. A deck lid (or rear wing) spoiler and aero kit are also included. Both are manufactured to match factory-molded components and are color matched to factory specifications.

    Although an MSRP for the package had not yet been determined at the time of the announcement, it will be priced at approximately $5,000 not including installation. Like all A-SPEC kits, the TL performance package must be installed by an authorized Acura dealer and will be covered under a full factory warranty.

    The TL A-SPEC package will include:

    High performance, track-tuned shocks and springs
    Performance brake pads (automatic transmission-equipped models)
    Lightweight 18x8.5 alloy wheels
    High performance Yokohama 235/40-R18 95W tires
    Choice of deck lid or rear wing spoiler
    Aero kit
    A-SPEC steering wheel
    A-SPEC badging

    If I were going to buy a TSX, I couldn't justify the price difference to get a set of 18's, skirting and lip spoiler and an interior goody or two. I'd wrather take that 4 grand and buy a real suspension and set of wheels/tires and still have the factory 17's as winter rims. I do like how it looks and all but buying into factory (appearance packages) are a waste of money IMO. They charge you rediculous markups for mediocre upgrades. An A-Spec TSX will be venturing into the 40K mark somewheres (for still an upgraded accord), and you're then starting to get into BMW pricing territory. :shrug: 3 Series, yes please.
