A true no excuses, nearly perfect, garage queen NSX that has honestly seen rain ONE TIME in its 25 years (No BS), I
washed her IMMEDIATELY after! This car doesn't turn heads, it spins them. I've owned her for 19 years (since 6,000
miles), have all records since then (except for the timing belt/water pump roughly 20K and 10 years ago). Just
turned over 49K miles, but this car is always driven regularly, normally twice a month about 50 miles each time. It
has ALWAYS had mobil-1 Synthetic (including prior owner). Not a snap ring range car (tranny tag #J4A4-1001989). She
is amazing looking and I have all original parts (for what non-stock parts are on the car), including spare in
front plus tools / pump in trunk. I also have the entire full set of Acura Service manuals for the car. Non Stock
Parts: Finstar (Dali-Racing) catback exhaust (sounds amazing), Dali-Racing Billet coolant recovery tank, K&N filter
system, Eibach springs, Bilstein shocks, 2001 NSX rims - chromed, stoptech 2-piece front slotted rotors, stoptech
rear slotted rotors. Maintenance and other work performed: Timing belt and water Pump replacement (but a while
ago), A/C R134 conversion and evaparator replaced, both window regulators, CV boots, Bose Amp rebuilds, HVAC
control unit rebuild, as with all these cars the Stereo eventually self destructs (the capacitors leak acid inside
and ruin it), you cannot replace it but Williams Electronics has a great Clarion stereo conversion they install
INSIDE the original case (so it looks bone stock), you now have bluetooth connection and a better head unit, this
cost me $750 and was just done a few months ago, ALL FLUIDS were just replaced and the car fully serviced a couple
hundred miles ago, he also performed a "buyer's inspection" essentially, I can provide that. Same mechanic has
serviced the car since 2007 he knows the car and it's care well and invited interested parties to contact him for
his opinion. Clean Carfax (I can send you). ABS is not functioning (this is common and does not affect brake
functioning in the least). Front tires are about 50%, rears at wear bars (just). Note: when I say I have "all"
stock parts I mean EVERYTHING: rims, lug nuts, airbox, coolant recovery tank, springs, shocks, exhaust. So if you
are one of those who wants a "bone stock" car, this car can be that in one day's time. Nothing has been modified
that can't be undone with simple re-install of the stock part. For those of you who truly KNOW NSX's you understand
that while a great car, they have issues that affect all of them eventually, with the exception of the ABS (which
fails on all the early cars at some point), I'd like to think that I've already encountered and repaired all of
these "expected" issues. Consequently, you should consider this car to be very well "sorted" out for you. Also
don't lose sight of the fact that this car has been driven on average twice a month at a minimum it's entire
life...it's never been moth-balled away for long periods of time which is a BAD thing for seals, gaskets, etc. Car
is available for viewing upon appointment locally (San Diego). Also included: the Original NSX Design book that was
given to each new owner with the car, it's the metal faced book in the image....very nice, has information about
the design, specs, etc, great photography. Also included is an original Honda NSX brochure (it's written in
japanese, except for the cover: "our dreams come true"), plus the original official NSX Accessories brochure.
Included in this image I have ALL the keys for the car, including the valet key. Another image shows you the 3
volume maintenance manuals, plus ALL the receipts for the car...remember I have owned it since 6,000 miles so it
covers everything since then. Of course I have the original leather bound owners manual that fits in the glove box.
I've also included two images in the trunk, one showing the complete roadside maintenance kit. the other the carpet
pad for the trunk. ALL carpet mats (floor and trunk), are ORIGINAL and in excellent condition, affirming the kind
of care the car's had from day one. I've added a front bonnet image, shows the original space saver tire. Lastly, I
added an image of the dash with the radio illuminated, as you can see the radio unit looks stock, it's just the
guts that are different. NOTE also in some of the images you see a non-stock shifter knob, I've reinstalled the
stock one (see the stereo image).

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.
Here's a vehicle that nobody saw coming. Unless Honda/Acura is keen to play tricks on us, our spy shooters recently caught what appears to be an Acura minivan fully camouflaged for testing on some back roads on a rainy day.
Details on the disguised minivan are rather scarce, but it certainly bares all the hallmarks of an Acura. The front grille alone gives it away with a look that mimics the latest MDX, and note that the orientation of the rear door handle heavily suggests that it slides to open. Moving inside, the tester appears to borrow some tech from the luxury brand's parts bin too, and the Acura logo seems to be covered in tape right in the middle of the steering wheel.
Mechanically, our spies believe that the production version of Acura's minivan might borrow the brand's V6, nine-speed automatic and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive - a similar layout to some trims of the TLX. The photographers also think that the vehicle is a little wider than the current Honda Odyssey to give occupants a bit more room. Given the more luxurious focus, the high-end model would surely carry seven people with a bit more opulence than the standard Odyssey, especially, we'd imagine, for second-row passengers. A launch for this posh hauler could be slated for the 2016 or 2017 model years.
Parent company Honda is issuing a recall for Acura TSX vehicles from model years 2004 to 2008, for a rather interesting fault with the electrical systems (well, kind of). It seems that TSX made between during that range have carpeting that degrades when it becomes saturated with "corrosive materials for deicing." The carpeting is in contact with each Acura's electronic control unit, which may in turn rust or become corroded as a result. All of that business could cause the engine to stall.
Acura is singling out cars registered in states that use these corrosive deicing materials (presumably road salt): Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia.
Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by Honda and instructed to bring their cars into the nearest Acura dealership. Dealers will inspect the ECU for damage, replace if needed, and cover with a waterproof piece; all free of charge. Check out the official recall notice below.
