Welcome to my Acura TL page. I purchased this car in October of 2001. I had always loved the 1st Generation TL's. When I had owned my Accord I always saw the TL and wanted one but couldn't afford one. So one day I found a 1996 Acura TL on a lot, and fell in love with it. Within a few days I was driving it home. It was pure luxury. It had leather interior, woodgrain dash, power seats, power sunroof, the works. It was also fast and had a inline 5 cylinder which I had never heard of before. It was meant to be a daily driver while I drove the Accord on weekends. But that didn't happen...

I ended up putting a bunch of modifications on it, like wheels, stereo system, a OEM spoiler, lowered it, did all the lights. Another reason I loved this car was, there weren't many 1st Gen TL's around. So like my Accord I had a unique car. I must say the TL was one of the best cars I owned. So after 4 years I decided to part with it, and get a new car. In October of 2005 I bought a 2003 Acura CL Type S. So I stayed in the Honda family. It wasn't easy selling the TL because it was paid off and still a very nice car. The TL truly speaks for it self. I will miss the TL... Below are a bunch of photos of it:
