Bam -



All it really needed was a longer wheelbase/greenhouse and a better looking frontend, not some wannabe 7er rear and super-sized ILX front.

(Agreed! -NM)

Not me, the MMC front end was the absolute worst looking Acura implementation of the grill.

Hence my statement "All it really needed was...a better looking frontend"

Don't understand how the NSX concept's plenum/shield was integrated so well, but it's a constant struggle with their regular cars...

+1 I really liked the rear of the MMC RL, especially the fanged tail lights & the multi-sided exhaust.

The reverse lights built into the chrome strip was also an interesting touch.

It really did look like an afterthought, which it was.
