Oscar's Crystal Black Pearl 2012 Acura TL

Here’s a Crystal Black Pearl TL that’s quickly garnering attention on AcuraZine. Sleek and stealthy, it’s hard to believe Oscar has only been an owner of this 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD for about three months. Then again, Oscar is no rookie when it comes to Acuras. I guess it’s not too much of a surprise after you’ve seen his other ride – a nicely modified 2006 Acura RL.

What really stands out on this TL is the way the grille is painted. I haven’t seen many 2012 TLs with painted grilles, and Oscar chose to colour match the inside “shield” and leave the outside frame chrome. It’s an interesting look that compliments the chrome accents on the lower bumper quite nicely.

Here’s a full list of current mods from Oscar:

OEM full underbody spoiler kit • rear roof spoiler • aluminum race pedal • Kaixen D2S 6k low beam • HID kit excelerate 6k fog 35 watts • JLC lightning DRL kit 9005 6k • Reverse cree led-shipped Interior led’s • RV6 Jpipe • Huper optik ESC45 tint • Painted front grill • Painted rear trim • Painted roof chrome trim  • Teins SS coils w/EDFC • Custom RonJon forged wheels 19×9 • SPC rear 3 piece camber kit • Ingalls front camber kit

Oscar still has plans for this TL, but for now have a look at his progress in the gallery below.

    holy moly that is a gorgeous car! i’m not a TL fan, but that is amazing. i’m not too crazy over the rear decals (the A, TL, and awd thing) being black, seeing as the front one is still silver. If it were mine, i would have gotten the decals darkened less ;]

    I like the painted look. I am in MD as well and looking to do the same. I have the graphite. I also want the Acura TL and SH-AWD removed from the rear. Looking for wheel ideas as well. Acura has the tires for life that I really do not want to miss out on but am open to ideas if I move up. I am thinking 20s. I have a 2004 TL AS WELL

    Best way to reach the owner would be to post on his Acurazine thread: http://tl.acurazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=856247 or send him a private message. His username is “Zelaya”.
