It's a shame Honda didn't incorporate LED taillights yet. Seeming that the Accord gets them now. Maybe it will be in the next MMC or FMC.

I too was thinking that since the Accord now has LED that the TSX would too. So at this point it will be the FMC as this was the TSX's MMC.

Im just saying for some odd reason (for the MMC) since the Accord went through its 3rd MMC.

I wouldn't call last year a MMC for the Accord as the tail light were updated. The interior changes I see as a running change to address rattling issues with the center console storage cover.

I'm very surprised (and disappointed) that the TSX didn't get LED tails. Even the MMC Accord got them. This is going to make my TL vs TSX decision even tougher now. The bluetooth and aux-in is a big plus. The TL doesn't even have Aux-in. Decisions...decisions.

i see no reasons for fog lights for this car - it has already HID's. Accord should have standard fogs (at least EX) instead of LED's in the back and TSX should have LED's in the back instead of fogs. oh well

I can't believe people consider LED taillights a selling point.

From a styling standpoint, who cares? And from a functional perspective well I guess they DO light 0.000002 second faster than a regular incandescent bulb, and they last longer but DAMN talk about nit-picky issues.

i see no reasons for fog lights for this car - it has already HID's
Fogs perform a completely different function from the main headlights, whether HID or not. A "true" fog light is meant to be used in dense fog; it's mounted lower than the main lights, and has a sharper beam cut-off that prevents light refracting off fog and back towards the driver.

the reason why NA accord got LED because it WASNT selling VERY WELL. they need to change the rear so it look like new galant or nissan maxima.

Why fix something that is not broken? i bet the TSX sales is in honda target number.

fog lights and HIDs are for 2 totally different purposes. HID's and all headlights in general as well as driving lights are all pencil beams narrow and long, while a fog light is short and wide, the fog lights on the TSX as well as any car merely give you better sight to the sides, for the purpose of animals and cars in other lanes. fog lights help decrease reaction time from objects on your sides.
I guess im the only one here who feels that LED tail lights would not do as good a job of complimenting the TSXs body as it would with the refreshed accord.
