has it got RWS?

Do those rear wheels just fit the arches really badly, or are they turning-in slightly at low speed?

Maybe just wishful thinking on my part.

The big wheeled car could be SH-AWD, because if they're NOT turning in, it's got a lot of camber & toe-in.

But something looks a bit odd.

Hey man, I am not a right sharp-eyed guy :o)), but the distance wheel-wheel arch is really big and ugly. Maybe some photoshop experts can say us if the rear wheel copies carīs side line, there are utilities to discover it. But maybe Preludeīs 4WS returns. Look at Honda Accord Tourer Concept press release: "The latest engines will be complemented by !!!!!innovative new chassis technology that will deliver exceptional handling!!!!!, greater linear stability and a more involving driving experience without compromising ride comfort." Originally, I thougt Honda means SH-AWD, but one guy from German R&D informed me in Frankfurt Honda probably will not offer SH-AWD in Europe. So maybe you are right. :-)

No, to me it sounds like from that verbiage that they're talking about the VGS system that's also been fitted to the '08 USDM Accord. It works okay but hopefully it will have better on-center feel in the TSX. In the Accord it feels too vague and numb to me on the straight ahead.

Unfortunatelly I have no chance to prove Hondas VGS, only ones I tested was in BMW and Lexus and both was disaster. Yes, sharp in low speeds (only by BMW), but no sporty feel by both and dead in straight. I donīt believe it is possible in present time make it better, so forget for improvement by TSX. But anyway - are you sure active steering is "suspension technology"?

Your quote said "innovative new chassis technology". I didn't see anything about new suspension technology. The steering system is a part of the chassis. I wouldn't say that Honda's VGS is a disaster, it's sort of invisible though and like I said, it feels too vague near the center for my tastes.

by the way, are you from Germany? If so, does Germany have an online system like the UK's where you can check for information on number plate registrations? We're trying to figure out what size motor is listed on the registration papers for that Acura TL mule that was spotted on the Nurburgring.

Oh, mea culpa, sorry, my fantasy is too wild,WS is too good to be truth... Probably you are right but I am not too happy with it, BMWīs active steering is really far from sporty (yes, vague), so I am a bit disappointed about it in Honda cars. I donīt believe Acura can get better one. Hope it will be an option.

Almost... :o) Czech republic, Germany is our western neighbour. I cannot say it exactly, but probably they donīt have anything like that, but I can ask somewhere.

Czech Republic? Lets hope Tomas Plekanecs has the breakout season all habs fans are hoping for.
Ok, so back on topic. I tried searching the German government's website and came up empty. I kept coming across a 'plan' to automate everything and have vehicle registration done online, etc but couldnt find any lookup tools. I could be totally wrong though. I'll keep searching.
