Images taken from http://www.canadiandriver.com/forum/index....ic,61060.0.html . Not sure where they're originally from. But damn, I love it. Aggressive without being too boy-racer; upscale while still sporty and distinctly Japanese. All stock TSXs should look like this.

EDIT: As a reminder as what the car started as:

Very clean looking. However, I don't think it's that far from stock, so I maintain that the stock TSX is in fact a good-looking car.

EDIT: Heh, I was reading through the thread, and some guy is like "A V6 TSX is a mistake, it'll steal sales from the TL." I sure hope it does, because the TL is quite possibly the most hideous car I've seen since the Rodius.

Umm isn't that a TSX? Or am I missing something here?


It's a TSX with a custom-painted body-color grille, different wheels, different lower bodywork, and a little bit of lowering. In my opinion it's the perfect example of how detail done properly can dramatically change the overall look of the car.

I've seen several new TSXs in person, and I think they're hideous (so long as they're stock). The new TL isn't nearly as bad as in pictures, except for the grill (which, as this proves, looks a thousand times better when painted). But I think this proves that the new TSX is fixable-ugly, as opposed to Caliber-SRT4-ugly.

I really don't think the Caliber is bad looking at all.
