Exterior design is really great but.....

Having owned a 2011 CSX, and now owning an ILX Tech, exterior design really moves Acura into the relm of entry luxury. The design really flows and does not look like the Civic in any way. Now, what happened to the side mirror turn signals( CSX had them)? Most vehicles now have them as standard, especially in the luxury end of the business. The door handles on this car are cheap looking and cheep feeling to the touch. The previous CSX had chrome accents and had a sturdy feel.
The wheels on the Premium and Tech. are the same 17" Aluminum style . I think they should add the Diamond Cut 17" wheels for a nominal "up charge" to the Tech package, rather than having to shell out $1600. more as an accessory to get the really nice wheels. Other than that I think the design is great.

RE: Exterior design is really great but.....

I noticed the lack of turn signals on the mirrors as well. I can only hope they will be added in the future. After all, my 2006 TSX had them. I also agree about the wheels for the tech. There is not enough visual distinction between the cars. It's almost like the Hybrid is top of the line according to visuals, yet, I see the Hybrid as the lowest of the line because of performance. I disagree about the door handles. The chrome strip may just be outdated. Most cars are starting to lose their chrome again. I do like that the door automatically unlocks when I touch the handle with no need to ever use the key.

Usually I don't like the standard exterior of any car. I have a Dodge pickup and I think that it should look more aggressive than what it looks like in a car dealership. I'm trying to search the Internet for interesting modifications to my car. First of all, I replaced the bumper to the wider, now it looks brutal. I also installed the largest wheels I could find for my Dodge. Now I want to replace the fender flares of the reflections above the wheels. I found an interesting article https://truckpowerup.com/best-fender...-for-ram-1500/ about the internet with reviews of different fender flares. I really like how looks MaxMate TFD84078. But I'm not sure that it will look good on my Dodge.
