Congrats! Can you tell us more about the body accessories kit? That is the OEM Acura kit right?

Yes, that's the factory "Sport Underbody Kit." The car is also equipped with the Lip Spoiler on the deck lid, the accessory 17" wheels, and the illuminated door sills. I spoke more about the installation of the accessories in this post from last week on my blog.

Thanks for the congrats! Loving the car so far. Maybe you'll see me cruising around Scottsdale. I'm at work now, near 101 & Shea Blvd. We should meet up for lunch sometime.

Gorgeous car, Tyson! Congratulations! The accessories look great, first time I've seen them on the car.

Can you tell us if the infamous "rev hang" issue exists on your 2.4 ILX? I saw you mentioned it not intefering with your shifting... does that mean it still exists, but not in a big or bad way? Or is it gone entirely?

I drove a 2.4 ILX a week ago (loved it!), and only remember once thinking "was that rev hang?" during the drive. So I guess either way, it's a good sign I didn't seem to really notice it

Great car.

Tyson, please share more photos because there are few real world photos of the accessories kit.

Got my 2019 ILX A-Spec 10 days ago - cannot believe I'm driving the same car so many people PAN on websites - all I can think is that they really have NO experience with the car they are basing their opinions on - so let's take a drive down Memory Lane - I bought a new BMW M5 sedan 32 years ago and owned & drove it for 10 years - also have experience with a 2012 Civic Si sedan (5 years) and a 2018 Civic HB Sport Manual (1 year);

1987 M5: 182" length 55.7" height 67" widteh 3450 lbs 256HP and 0-60 time of 6.7 sec (5-speed Manual)
2019 ILX: 182" length 56" height 71" width 3144 lbs 201HP and 0-60 time of 6.6 sec (8-speed Dual Clutch Auto)

M5 cost me $48,000 in 1987
ILX cost me $31,000 in 2019

This is NOT some "refreshed 9th Gen Honda Civic" by any means

plus - it's NOT a "Turbo made in Thailand" with "6-speed made in India"
