With the 5x114.3 (2014-2016) to 5x120 (2017+) change, I've been hunting for more changes in the manuals.

One thing I found was that 2017s now recommend 5W-30 instead of 0W-20 that was for 2014-2016. (Ok, I've actually found that the documents contradict itself. One section says 0W-20, another says 5W-30. Way to go on QC again Acura...).

Another thing is that coolant capacity has also increased from 1.93 gal/7.3L to 2.34 gal/8.85L, so perhaps they changed the radiator design with the front facia change.

The front turn signal/side market/parking lights are also now LEDs as opposed to 28/8W ambers.

Console compartment light used to be 1.4 W and is now an LED and is listed as Front/Rear* Console Lights. *If equipped. Any input on what's the rear console?

Infotainment will be an obvious update of software and database info versions.

Anyone notice anything else? Hmm...

Right, i guess i should have been more specific. I don't really see the transmission as new as it is the same since 16. Same with remote start modulre, EXCEPT the use of the new antenna hookup. That part is probably something I'm interested in knowing. Kind of highlights all the little issues they fixed from the 16 or changes 3G owners should know about so they dont accidentally buy a part thinking it works for all 3G only to find out 17+ was a really different animal.

Yeah this change is showing across multiple sources, so this one seems solid.

I would be interested in the tech and drive-train upgrades for the 2017 or is most of it just cosmetic.
