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).

Mariano Rivera, considered one of Major League Baseball's best relief and closing pitchers, bought an Acura when he debuted in the major leagues in 1995, and has owned nothing but Acuras since. So it was only natural for the New York Acura Dealers group to strike up a partnership. The fruits of the deal can be seen in the latest New York Acura commercial, called "Legends," which stars Rivera and Acuras new and old. It's narrated by actor Steve Schirripa, who played Bobby "Bacala" Baccalieri in HBO's The Sopranos.
"The spots are a nod to Acura's history and the years it overlapped with Mariano's career," says Scott Rodgers, chief creative officer at Tier10, the ad agency that developed the campaign's concept. With the "Legends" campaign, Rivera and the New York Acura Dealers continue a partnership that has provided $800,000 to the pitcher's charity, the Mariano Rivera Foundation.
The hardest part of the commercial was was finding the cars to star in it, according to Douglas Sonders, co-founder of 8112 Studios, the production company that shot the commercial. "Social media saved the day for us," he says. "After days of cold calls and e-mails to all of our contacts, we ended up sourcing everything we needed in 24 hours after asking our online contacts for assistance."
There are certain vehicles on sale today that are affected by what I call 'Camry Syndrome.' Named after Toyota's ubiquitous family hauler, Camry Syndrome affects a fair number of cars and trucks, many of which are exceedingly popular with consumers.
The issue I have with these vehicles is that while they're adequate, they lack ambition. Their looks are clean and reasonably attractive, but they're not particularly stylish, let alone adventuresome or - heaven forbid - polarizing. Their interiors are comfortable and well screwed together, with the sort of popular features that consumers expect at a given price point. Their engines are decently powerful and vocal enough to set the heart very slightly aflutter, yet they're not too thirsty. Their transmissions are invisible and their rides are best described with whatever buzzword synonym Joe Consumer might come up with for "sporty" or "luxurious." In short, they're boring.
In reality, provided they sell well, there's really nothing wrong with automakers building Camry Syndrome vehicles - they're reasonably competent at everything and clearly meet a need. The problem is that I want some aspects of my vehicle to be better than others, because contrast breeds character. I wish someone at Acura felt the way I did when it redesigned this MDX for 2014, because for me, there's so much of this premium crossover that's merely middle of the road.
The not-yet-ready-for-primetime 2012 Honda Civic saw it quickly returned to sender for refurbishment, now the Acura ILX is headed in the same direction in its very first year. Automotive News reports that the small, Civic-based sedan from Honda's luxury brand isn't meeting sales expectations, with an annualized rate of 22,000 to 24,000 sales instead of the 30,000 the company is after. More telling is that the ILX "is being outsold by the Buick Verano, Volkswagen CC and Audi A4," and, except for two months since it launched, it has also been outdone by the Acura TSX it is meant to replace.
Part of the cause has been the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine: its 150 horsepower to motivate a sedan that can weigh up to 2,970 pounds doesn't offer the kind of performance or value experience that buyers in the segment respond to. Another big issue is that the top-level 2.4-liter engine is only offered with a six-speed manual even though most buyers of the highest trim don't really want to shift their own gears. Lastly, the ILX might not put enough space between it and its frugal underpinnings - our first drive review pegged it as "the world's nicest Honda Civic."
An automatic transmission is on the way for the 2.4-liter, but it isn't clear when. And while Honda admits that the 2.0-liter is underpowered and Automotive News says it's on the way out, the company hasn't yet said how that situation will be corrected.
