Hey guys/gals!

Just bought my first new car 2 days ago. Got the only ILX in my state hehe. I chose the black on black 2.0 tech. Alot of people hate on the smaller motor but I honestly don't care. I have a fast car already and needed a comfortable reliable daily driver. So far I am loving it. The ELS system sounds great, ride comfort is nice, has all the tech features i dreamed of plus more! Any ways I hope to participate and enjoy this forum with you all! I've been a member of d-series.org, honda-tech, and crsx for a while as well :)

Well there was only one hehe they just got the hybrid version in and i guess the cvt sounds like shit.

It's so smooth and quite its crazy.. I test drove the 12 tsx today just to compare and its day and night difference. The tsx seemed brutish in comparison. Hard shifts, louder motor, less standard features(in tech), more cabin noise, rougher oon bumpy roads. Cant wait for it to get out of the tint shop.

Previous cars
Rsx-S
Honda Element(still own)
Honda Del sol(turbo'd fun car)
and numerous junk cars when i was younger.

I went to clubILX and wow are they hating on this car. None of them have even test drove one or understand the logic behind the build.

Congrats on the new ride. Nothing wrong with a daily driver. And there will always be haters. Ignore them, or if you're bored set em straight lol.

lol yeah very true, I was a bit bored and set them straight. :)

It's been at the tint shop for 3 days now. I should have it back today. I got clear protective film added and the windows tinted to 30%. The film is covering entire hood,bumper,bottom of fenders, rockers up to body line, trunk entrance,door cups and mirrors. Will take pics and post soon as I get it back!

Good job on getting all of that done. Do you do a lot of driving and got it for that or just want to be on the safe side and protect the already new paint?

WHere are the pictures at?

For to add that those factory 5 star wheels look amazing. I know guys with older honda's and acura's will be throwing these on. Old school civic with these 5 star's would look nice!
