Default I drove an Acura TSX ('08) the other day...

I drove a TSX for about 30 miles the other day, that thing has great pick up for a I4. How in the heck do they get over 200 hp in a I4? Very quick off the line and it was getting about 27 mpg around town. Nice car.

Yeah, BMW is even putting a 240 horse 4 cylinder in a 5 series now. But the engine bays don't seem any less cluttered, do they?

No they don't (make it any cleaner). More hoses, lines, wires, plastic, etc.

So why would you post about driving a Acura on a Volvo forum?

Because this happens to be the "Off Topic" section of the forum. Perfectly ok

LOL, Hi BlueTurboBrick, welcome to the forum.

In the Off Topic Section, we use this as a hang out. You can write about scratching your a%& if you'd like.

I swear I've talked about my Volvo's on MDXers - the Acura Forum I visit on occasion.

My mom had a 2012 TSX as a loaner when she had her car in for service. She didn't like it so I got to drive it and I was also surprised at the amount of power it has for a 4 cylinder. The gas mileage was great, the gauge didn't move at all in the 75 miles I drove it.
