Some of the questions I have been getting:
Q: Why are you selling your car?
A: Couple of reasons, need more space in the garage family has four cars three of them are mine : )
I hardly drive it anymore and I've owned it for 5 years time for something else....just don't tell my wife.
Q: How loud is the exhaust?
A: It's not loud, louder than stock but not loud. Comptech really did their homework. The sound is unique, deeper and a little throatier than stock.
It is not you typical "tuner" exhaust. Not droney, raspy or sound like a pack of bees coming. You can drive on the highway with no radio on and have a conversation at normal voice levels.
Q: How stiff is the suspension?
A: Handling was greatly improved without sacrificing comfort, its not "slammed" All suspension angles are 100% to factory spec.
Absolutely no uneven tire wear problems, we have taken this car on many weekend vacations its very comfortable.
Q: Do you have all your receipts?
A: I do have a good amount of receipts but not all, I would happily show you the ones I have.
Doing all the repairs myself its a little hard to make a legitimate receipt to myself.
Everything I have said I have done can be verified with an inspection.
Q: Is there any rust on the body?
A: There is no rust on the body. It is hard to photograph the small scratches and dings. The paint is very reflective and the pictures usually just show whatever is reflecting off of the paint. The most affected area is the hood and front fenders there is what people refer to as "peppering" or small rock chips from day to day driving. Even with that said the majority of people do not believe me when I tell them the car is clean....until they see it person and then they are like "wow this car is clean."
If you would like to talk in person please email me through eBay and I will give you my phone number.

There's a fun cliche for all-black cars based on an old Chevrolet Impala SS advertisement - "Lord Vader, your car is ready." It's been reproduced seemingly every time an automaker comes out with a menacing, black car. This Acura Street Performance ILX is for a different movie villain, though. Its advertisement should read, "Goldmember, your car is ready."

Yes, this is a matte gold car, and would probably be lusted after by that freaky deeky Dutch villain. And while it's easy to poke fun at the car's paint job, we're actually quite impressed with what Acura and MAD Industries have done with the car's mechanicals. The 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine has been boosted to 250 horsepower at the front wheels, thanks to a CT Engineering supercharger and an ECU reflash. A CT Engineering intake adds to the grunt, as does a new, prototype Greddy exhaust.
The car rides on 19-inch Nitto NT05 Max tires and TSW Max wheels, while Tein Super Street coilovers and a Stoptech big brake kit make the compact Acura a bit more controllable. Outside the car, an Acura Accessories body kit has been fitted, while the cabin sports a CT Engineering short shift kit, and a few other items from the Acura catalog.
It wasn't so long ago that Honda was known for its sporty two-door models, with models ranging from the Civic del Sol to the Prelude and from the Acura Integra and RSX to the Honda S2000. But look at its range today and all you'll see are the Civic and Accord coupes. Honda has essentially let competitors like the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ and Nissan 370Z take the place it once claimed as its own. But if you were hoping Honda would fight back with a new coupe or convertible of its own, we're afraid you're going to have to downgrade those hopes to pipe dreams.

While in Japan ahead of the Tokyo Motor Show, Autoblog had a chance to sit down with American Honda CEO Tetsuo Iwamura (pictured at right). When we asked about the potential for a new sports coupe or convertible in the Honda or Acura lineup, he pointed to the current Civic and Accord coupes - not to mention the upcoming new NSX - but said that Honda has no replacement for any of the aforementioned models (or a rival for the FR-S or 370Z) in the pipeline, saying only that the company is monitoring potential demand.
What Iwamura-san did note was that he's a personal fan of the new S660 roadster (pictured above) set to be unveiled tomorrow, and he is pushing (or at least hoping) that it will come to North America. Given that he's head of both Honda's American office and its global automobile operations, one might think that the only person he would have to persuade is himself (well... himself, and potential buyers), but the sporty droptop looks to be about kei-sized, which sadly suggests that it may be too small for American tastes and perhaps not designed with US crash-test standards in mind anyway.
Let there be no doubt - racing automobiles can be very dangerous. This unfortunate fact of life has been proven once again today by Cody Loveland, owner of LoveFab, who crashed his Corvette-powered tube-frame Acura NSX on the second turn of the Pikes Peak hill climb course, apparently after a rear upper control arm failed. Cody hit a wall of boulders at high speed, after which the racecar caught fire.
Cody was able to escape the blaze unhurt - minus some missing hair that was singed off in the fire - but the car appears to be a complete mess, as you can see from the image above. The LoveFab Motorsports team has vowed to do its very best to rebuilt the car in time for the competition, but we'd be awfully surprised (and impressed) if that burnt-up hulk were ready for racing with just a few days to rebuild.
We're happy to hear that Cody got away safely, and here's hoping the rest of the competitors get up the hill without incident, or, like Cody, are at least able to walk away uninjured if they don't.
