Brenda S. and Matt B. "2005 Acura TSX"

Rodney Waller get's his hands dirty yet again, grinding away with another Gripset feature; Our first TSX!


When fashion begets passion, passion will beget fashion........even if it's a set of pink shoes flying by as they rest snug under the fender of a black back drop. The TSX has been amongst us for the past 9 years, almost a decade since it's debut in 2004. In such a short time it has become one of the most lovable ''grocery getters,'' released by Honda Motor Co. A genuine sensation really. It's chassis was meant for modding. The aftermarket support for the K-series power plant paired with part interchangeability/mod-ability made it perfect for a tuners dream family ride come true. Translation, it meant, Daddy could give up his death trap ''race car'' and have a fast car that Mommy could drive, hauling the kids from A to B. All  the meanwhile, unbeknown to your local law enforcement a beast lay tamed under the hood, tucked away in the smoothest of body offerings from Acura. That is assuming speed and raw power was daddy's thing! If it wasn't, and daddy just cared about appearance and doing the limbo, yet still lacked two more doors it was, and is, one of the most suitable upgrades. "Four doors, equals more ......," anyway! So in the end, it doesn't matter if your just about the stance of things, or you wish to create a simple head turner, or a tear jerker. Living life like it's stolen is the key. His an Her passion is the way to go if you must share, and if you must share, let it be with the one you love!

......let them judge, we don't give a fudge. you do you, while we do us! #repgripsetyabish


The motivation
FAP FAP, A tantalizing tease, this car exudes a quiet grace. A stance daily driven grocery getter, which we had for less than two years and put over 40k plus miles on. Although a four-door sedan, this isn’t your average TSX. Enjoying both style and ride, “TSexy” is just a car for us to save money on gas without having to drive the gas guzzler. We always have been into modified cars. Usually fapping away looking at car porn and getting ideas. At first we were just going to get a Honda Accord but when we went to shows we always saw modded civic and accords. So we thought, why not step our game up to an Acura. At first it was the Acura TL but again noticed a lot of fixed up TL’s so we went for the TSX. Most shows and local meets around the area would only have one or two TSX’s. Most of the comments we get are “Wow that’s an awesome TL” And we would say “Nah Bro that’s a TSX”. We have noticed more and more people talking about getting a TSX around our area. Which is cool for us, we might have to move on to the next project like most car enthusiast.
