New PMM Base Owner - Cincinnati, OH

Picked up my 2013 Polished Metal Metallic Acura ILX Base model on June 26, 2012. Absolutely in love with this car. I moved up from a 2006 Chevy Cobalt Coupe LT and this is a whole new world. I really wanted to go with the 2.4L but didn't want another manual.

One pic I've taken of the ride:

Welcome to the club! The ILX is a nice upgrade from a Cobalt.

Welcome Blast. Great looking car and not just because it looks like mine. Although I refuse to call mine a "polished metal metalic" as that sounds way too much like a sales pitch gone bad. My car is dark gray. LOL.

I've already pried off the center wheel caps and spray painted them a muted green (must be the Marine Corps DNA still in me from 40 years ago). It's a subtle difference but really makes the car stand out.

Already had my first service visit to the dealer (flat tire, not the car's fault) and the shop crew just stared. They knew there was something different but couldn't figure it out until I pointed out the wheels. The unanimous vote was that they liked the change.

I am thinking about getting some of that colored vinyl tape for the chrome trim around the side windows from the A back to the C pillors. Still debating with myself about it, haven't had time to get serious yet. I'm up to 4400 miles (was first to take delivery in greater Kansas City) and love everything about it. I up graded from a 2011 Honda CR Z (27K miles)because I wanted something more fancy and plush.

Mission accomplished.
