06 TSX official Info online now!    (Score: 1, Normal) 09-02-2005 14:21

Acuranews.com has 06 TSX and TL and MDX information!
The photos of the 06 TSX are not similiar to the European Accord. The changes to the front end are noticable but I am hard pressed to see a difference in the rear. The changes to the interior are even harder to spot. The gauges may be different but I am not sure. I think Acura did a great job of updating without outdating those of us with 04/05 models.

yeah, it's strange because i was a little worried about the updates after hearing some internal descriptions not too long ago. I could live with these changes. I don't like the wheels at all though. Thankfully i have the A-spec wheels i could move over to that car.

I want to see what the difference in the motor is like and know for sure whether Hondata will be able to quickly crack the ECU or not.

by the way, I noticed that the pics of the '06 TL don't look like the one spy shot we got (but never posted, because it was pricy). THANK GOD! The shot I had looked just like a normal TL but it had the reverse lights down in the lower bumper area, and it looked pretty dumb. I wonder if they're developing a revised TL for the Euro market or maybe even Japan....

Jeff, can you post the Hi-Res version of the instrument panel and steering wheel photo hondanews has? I am really curious as to what the MID looks like as well as the extra buttons on the lower right of the steering wheel.

So no improvements to the lagging response time with the drive by wire throttle? I was hoping to see that revised.

I guess this is the problem I was experiencing when I did TSX 6sp test drive couple days ago. I originally though that gear box/engine/etc was broken because it was almost impossible to make smooth shifts especially 1-2.

The extra buttons are for the Bluetooth HandsfreeLink.

I think the only change to the rear is at the very bottom where the reflectors are, and the contour of the bumper cover looks like it might be a little different.

No, the Bluetooth buttons are on the lower left hand side. It's the two buttons with the telephone icons. The question is about the two lower right butttons. One button is an i in a circle and the other button says SEL RES.

no, it's the buttons for the MID (multi-information display). It allows you to cycle through the info on the LCD. the SEL/RESET button is for the trip odometer and also serves as the "enter" button if you're setting stuff on the MID.
