I am posting these images for ColMo who has had a problem posting images.

Here is my "Baby" - 2002 Taffeta White Touring/Nav -Saddle with Gold Emblems/Inner Grille/Exhaust and Modified RL Gold Center Caps; Painted Fender Fares/Front Trim/Rear Tail Deflector & Splash Guards; Side Steps; Wood Meter Trim; Wood Steering Wheel; Wood Shift Knob; Cargo Cover and Net; Full Size Spare; Form Fit Front Air Deflector; Hand Painted Pin Stripe; Front Window Tint. I have been slow to post pics as I have waited to I got everything installed - special thanks to Tim for great prices and customer support. I love the vehicle especially the nav system.

Didn't you have a 2001 MDX?

I know that you have been around here forever, si you must have had a 2001 mdx...

Didn't you?

And if you did, did you trade it in? Did you take a bath on the
trade in?

And more importantly have you notice any reduction in the wind noise due to the roof rack or is there no difference?

WOW...that is just TOOO Monochromatic for me...Too much white. The monochromatic look was SOOOO in in the early 90s. EVERYTHING has to be painted...

Well its a nice looking MDX nevertheless.

Very Clean

The Car is nice! Very Clean. I like the painted "everything" it makes the vehicle look Really Clean. I just installed my fender flares (painted to match SS) I'll be posting more pics of my MDX when I put my rims back on. Its winter so the 20's won't handle quite as well as the stock Snow tires so I took them off.

?? Roof Rack ??

You missed the roof rack [still black]. Not sure if I'm kidding, might work!!

You did a very nice job, good looking X [heck, very good looking X].

Colmo,

Your white X looks beautiful. My salesman called yesterday and said my white X has arrived. Yahoo.... So your pics came at a great time, gave me more ideas on how to accessorize the X.

Did you install these items yourself? If yes, anything that was difficult to install? I'm curious about the splash guards (remove tires for ease of install?), the fender flares, and rear tail deflector (feel uncomfortable about drilling holes in X).

I was going to order running boards for the X, but after seeing your X, I'm thinking about side steps. What was your reason for selecting the side steps?

I like the tinted front windows...what did that cost?

Is there noise from the front air deflector or sunroof visor when driving at high speeds?

Sorry for all the questions...I'm very impressed at what you did to your X...

Thanks...

Sorry for the delay in replying, but just got back in town from California.

Jorge - No, its a 2002 and I got in late Dec 01. I have been around awhile as this forum was great for getting info needed to make decisions especially regarding accessories.


MARFONG - Regarding the accessories, I had all, but the Form Fit air deflector and the modified Gold RL Center Caps installed by the dealer - that way they have the same warranty as the vehicle. Also, I was able to negotiate reasonable prices for those I didn't get from Tim. It was Tim's prices that helped in the negotiations. The front trim/tail gate deflector/fender flares were painted by Tim's body shop (Great Job), but installed by my local dealer. I understand the Gen Mgr and Sales Mgr came to look at the vehicle - they hadn't seen one done this way.

As to the side steps - I like the subtle, but stated look vice the running boards, plus the side steps are metal and I feel they will hold up better over time.

The front tinting was thrown in free by the dealer.

I haven't noticed any wind noise from the front air deflector, maybe a little from the sunroof visor, but it hasn't bothered me.

I love the vehicle and I am sure you will love yours too - Good Luck.

They started at $ 1,895.00. Called another Acura dealer in town
= $ 895.00. Called my guys back and told them I would pay $ 895.00 ONLY, or I will place order for same vehicle at the other dealership. They told me $ 795.00. They have a local guy here that keeps them in stock in chrome - he gets your wheels and sends them off for chrome and repeats the process.

Roadrunner question on tint?
