People have long said that the beak would be the end of Acura but it seems like the only one it might be affecting is the TL – & there is so much else that could be wrong there that it is hard to say. Go RL!
I still think the RL is the ugliest of the bunch. The Legend doesn’t look bad at all with the Honda grill, but Acura grill…. bleh. It just doesn’t look right. Looking forward to seeing the next gen RL.
