I am 16 and this is my first car. From the first time that I saw it, I knew it was the one I wanted. It has the Acura/Honda name so you know it is reliable and luxurious. There aren't that many performance parts and stuff for it out there, but you can do a lot of stuff to it and make it look really nice. check out www.acura-tl.com if you want to see some of them fixed up!
I love the exterior and interior styling. It is just clean and simple. The exterior styling is still modern looking and people find it hard to believe my car is a 96.
Not too much, just a stronger engine (but who doesn't want that/the engine is plenty powerful for a sedan.)also I wouldn't mind more aftermarket parts for this car, but that isn't honda's fault.
