yesterday while giving a co-worker a ride home, I saw a black Acura ILX in the next lane over, it made a left turn on Adeline St.

I've heard that the seldom-seen CEO of ILX drives a gold one with "OTM" vanity plates.

at the time the ILX was seen, we were talking about the zen of sailing and comparing it to driving

i see these all the time, they look aight and are reasonably priced but i can't imagine springing for one rather than just getting a civic or accord w/ upgrades

Given that Acura is a Honda brand, and that there really is pretty much no reason to buy a low-end Acura over an upgraded Honda, it clearly just exists for someone who needs a "luxury" logo on their car.

I rarely see an ILX, I see plenty of MDXors though

actually fwiw it looks like the ILX has some features you don't get with a high-end accord and the engine is bigger (but accord is a turbo so it's higher horsepower). Some people don't like turbo engines, but the one on the touring accord is pretty damn powerful.

one month passes...

silver ILX driving up the street, appeared to be looking for parking or perhaps trying to find the secret freeway onramp

four months pass...

maroon ILX driving down the hill on my block; stayed on its side of the road and didn't exceed the speed limit -- good job ILX

three weeks pass...

black ILX driving down the messy part of Telegraph Ave with all the parklets. Was not doing the best job of staying in its lane.
