From the 3 TL pictures I think black TL looks great to me. It hides some weird body lines, unfortunately.

I received an Acura magazine yesterday and saw the TL in picture. Man, the pictures were taken by professional photographer, but still look so hideous both front and back, especailly with silver color. I must say RL and TSX look much better than TL, although I am not so high on RL MMC redesign.

I saw the 09 TL base in person a few weeks ago. Indeed, it looks better than in picture, but I am still not convinced the new design, especially after seeing the TL pictures in Acura magazine. Hopefully Acura will get things fixed soon.

Agreed on the black TL, but wtf is up with the wheels on that lighter colored model? Other than that color plus the silver shield just not working like I think Acura wants it to, those wheels look a bit low-rent for a vehicle attempting to exude a bit of prestige.

When the pictures first loaded I thought that blue TL was a Camry SE. Im just not feeling Acuras direction as if the TL and TSX are clues to what we can expect over the next few years Im sad to say that my CL-S will probably be my last Acura.

I bet that Borealis Blue looks good when it's not under florescent lights. Though I agree, those are the wrong rims for that color. They should have stuck with the 19" HPT rims.

Speaking of rims, I was surprised how good the 18"s look on the black TL.

Sorry the blue TL with those wheels and ground kit looks great. Except take the ugly side door trim off, it doesn't work. It's not what i would spend my $ on but still looks sharp. Something that belongs in a Bond film. Some chick driving it that 007 is chasing or background car...
