Thai.95LCoupe - that is a low visibility light.

while in germany, I would scoot around in a european 929 that had the rear low vis light.

yeah, europeans are all about extra reflectors and lights...

though I tend to think that if the weather is so bad taht you miss the entire car and need to use that little light to see someone, you shouldnt be driving ;0

hehehehe

The specs on that Honda Legend suck!!!
It looks like 96/97 RL.

0-100kmph in 9.3 sec?? (i believe 100km/h = 60mph) - Thats slow!!!!
HP is 205

maybe I should contact Acura HR person and see if they have any openings!! They REALLY need some good designers!!!

0-100kph is 0-62mph to be exact which would make 0-60 around 9.0 - 9.1. Which sounds right, if the US version has 215hp (220 I think in 2002+) it gets rated at 8.8 from 0-60.

Which would make it signifigantly slower than any previous generation production Legend.

Ahhh... It's been talked about over and over again, hehe.


The RL is the 3rd Generation Legend. Just like the RSX is the Integra still. They just changed the Generation, and style. Most of us wont accept that the RL is really the Legend because it sucks. However, at heart it is true. Everything seems to be getting renamed in North America. It's all about marketing. Honda does not have an Acura division in Japan, they call all their cars their real names. RL = Legend, RSX = Integra, TL/CL = Inspire (Or was one of those the Sabre?)

The RL was a step backward in my opinion, and their "Target" audience isn't buying slow V6 205HP engines, they're buying smoother V8 engines. Honda needs a V8 in that sucker to compete in category they're trying to compete in. It also needs a re-styling, but that's a whole different issue.

LoL Cool, so people in Japan can get an Acura CL and say it's "Imported"

Next thing you know, there will be all these street Magazines with American Women on them over there.. hahaha :) Maybe they'll stick little American flags on their antennas on them :D

Too bad the CLs wouldn't exactly be the best example of American quality. From what I hear, the interiors squeek a lot after a while.
