Gallery: SCALE Suspension Acura TLX

SCALE Suspension has put together an interesting Acura TLX build with a unique custom front lip and side spoilers added on to the OEM accessory kit. The TLX uses SCALE’s INNOVATIVE SERIES suspension system and rides on Vossen CVT wheels. They’ve “blacked out” the chrome accents and grille, but in contrast added a splash of color with orange painted side mirrors.
