it's acura tsx, which is honda accord to the rest of the world.
however, a lot of people in the usa change the badge on the acura to reflect jdm style.

A lot of the people are into the whole JDM thing, like you guys are with converting to euro spec, except they take it a step further by actually rebadging the car...

Outside of the United States there is no Acura (only honda), there is no Infiniti (only Nissan), Lexus exists in some european countries, but for the most Part its just Toyota's more high end cars.

Personally, I learned to dislike the OEM Acura Grill, There was just way too much chrome on the front of the car, and especially on a black car I just wasnt a fan... When I saw the first guy convert from the TSX to the Euro Grill I fell in love, I wasn't sure about the Honda Badges, but the mesh and body color trim vs the Chrome "wings" was no contest

Never Dyno'd her, But I had every bolt on part besides the Supercharger and The Hondata ECU Reflash (the idea of mailing the ECU and immobilizer to California is frightening)

Tastefully done! Nice car!

Looks very similar to my '07 racecar:



Nice move to the 330xi, i'm sure you are very pleased with the transition.

Not sure why you would re-brand an Acura as a Honda accord, regardless of the rest of the world...Or need a scangauge to monitor an almost stock N.A. car, but hey, it's not my car....

It does have a much more tasteful exterior than most the kitted car around here though
