2009 TL Rhinoplasty Photos Are Flooding my E-mail Inbox

Several Acura dealers have taken the initiative to repaint the Power Schnoz on some brand new 2009 TLs and these photos have been popping up here in our forums as well as elsewhere on the net. In case you haven't seen these yet, here is a gallery of the photos that keep denting my inbox. While I'm not the biggest fan of the Power Plenum that you'll find, I'm not sure that painting it helps much.
