Thanks everyone for the great comments, suggestions over the past almost 2 years. I traded my '06 Sportcombi in on an '08 Acura TL Type-S.

2006 Aero Sportcombi

2008 Acura TL Type-S

Goodluck with your new car.

It would be nice if you can give us a comparison between the two - more specifically performance wise.

I noticed you had the PPC and would like to know how it compares to the many horses (how many are there? the TL has.

the acura is nice, but I like your sport-combi better. What air cleaner do you have?

gotta be honest, I looked at both the TL and the TL type S....and I think the turbo V6 9-3 is superior....maybe that's because I like the turbo though (and I hate my dad's 5spd auto TL)

at any rate, have fun with it, they're certainly fast enough once you get past that wheelspin
at least the type s is less common than the regular TL

So why the switch? Not really an upgrade.

Not an upgrade is a false statement. Nice choice man.
