    well yesterday i saw some acura that i had never seen before from canada

    pretty much looked like a rebadged 4 door civic

    so i checked the site and that confirmed my suspicions

    anyways i just woder if any of you guys have heard of it

    seems like a pretty weak car to be marketed as a luxury vehicle

    acura EL

    Yes, I have heard of it. It's a 4-do civic with a bunch of luxary upgrades. It sucks now, but since is shares chassis with the civic, it gets a facelift when the new civic comes out. Then, it will be badass.

    The one good thing about the EL is that it makes the ultimate sleeper. It can accept all the swaps a civic can. There are a few of them in the greater Toronto area that have GSR-T swaps. You'll never know what hit you.

    L30T? wtf, b?

    L-series = SOHC. T without an E = turbo but carb'd. Suck.

    The wheels and ground effects look different, if not great. The front fascia looks like something to do if you're bored and want to sink a ton of time into something like..... that..... Turbomirage ?
