      real talk tho if i had to choose between a bmw and an 2009 acura TL to 11....acura would win every time u cant beat the acura reliability guys!!! way more reliable, a have a 2009 acura tl fwd tech.. and it has over 200k on it and it runs like a new car only thing i ever did to it was oil change break pads...timingbelt now i can put another 200k on it.

      I know this is old, but great comparison. I would have like to seen both cars be the 3.7 awd version. As a whole I prefer the 2009-11 version. Especially the quad tips on them. Little too much chrome but I love the aggressive style, newer one looks more mundane. I did a lot of research before buying. I knew I was getting a 6 speed manual so the interior and options are 100% identical. I went with a 2010 for the quad tips ;-), great job!

      I have the 2012 but I prefer the grill of the 09-2011 models. I like the aggressive look.

      He mentions he wrote to them and they kind off listened to him (but not really). He mentioned to them what he would like in the inside of the car but they did not listened to that (he says that at 02:41)

      @Gabriel Agent no it's not....that context is nowhere to be found in what he is talking about. What he is meaning is that he thinks Acura fixed it for him on the new model due to his complaint.

      What he means is that they replied to him. His english is limited so he didn't know how to word it.

      All you can say after watching this is who gives a shit what you like? There's no versus here, just demonstrating how he pimped his ride.

      BMW 5 SERIES, AUDI A6, AND MERCEDES BENZ E CLASS are light years ahead of this uglified Honda Accord. I'd rather lease the beautiful elegant VW CC with a lightning fast 6 speed dual clutch transmission and VR6 engine before this ugly Acura TL.

      That had a lot of FAKE chrome colored plastic on the old model. All the chrome on the new model is REAL Chrome.
      The old model is much uglier, and the new model has a much better, faster, and more fuel efficient 6 speed transmission. A lot of Audis and even more basic VWs had lighting fast 6 speed Dual Clutch Transmissions in 2009 so the 5 speed torque converter automatic in the TL was laughably ancient and slow to shift. The new 6 speed automatic in the 2012 is a giant improvement.

      I have a 2012 Acura Tl AP and I painted my grill black plus I have 20" chrome/alloy rims. People mistake my car for Lexus or Audi especially from the front. :)

      The 2012 is the version they should have originally come out with. Maybe they wouldn't have had a huge decline in sales. The only thing I like on the old model better is the rims. To me chrome blows so the less of it the better. The grill still looks a little out of place but it's far better then the old one. You shouldn't have to step back from a car and try an not focus on the car to actually see it's not to bad looking. It should look good at any angle.

      WHAT MAKES THE 2011 ACURA TL FOR ME IS THE FRONT GRILL AND THE REAR LOOK WITH THE SPOILER, THE CAR LOOKS FUTURISTIC, AND THERE IS NOT ANOTHER CAR THAT LOOKS LIKE IT.

      Thanks for your review Diego. I just got a 2010 Acura TL 15k miles, white with tan leather seats and I'm loving it. I never noticed, other than the front grill, any difference between the first and newer version, but I can tell you that I completely agree with you, the first version looks a lot better than the new one. We are two happy Acura owners!

      i agree with you 100% Diego J Martinez, they should have given the car the new features inside. and kept the exterior the same. if anything they could have shrunk the grill a little little bit.
