It looks better in person, but it's not really very pretty any way you look at it.  Intriguing would be a good word for it, I think.

Well at first I hated it (why mess up a good thing) but after awhile the new look grew on me, now I'm not so mad that Acura is planning on incorporating this into all of its new cars.

Well the new TL has a nice profile and looks good from the back, at least in certain colors, but frankly I think the overall look screams Pontiac Aztek Sedan.  I guess Honda is hoping that since people bought the polarizing designs of recent BMWs that people will buy a polarized Acura.  I personally don't buy cars based on the emblem, there has to be style to go with the substance.  The Infiniti M car, may look like a gussied up Altima, and the design isn't the newest in the segment, but I would take it, or a used RL before they changed it to look like the new TL any day over the  new TL.

I still think this grill gives Acura an identity though.  At least now there's one body part on their machines besides the badges that says it's an Acura.  Maybe it's not as prominent as BMW's kidney grill.  It still says more than this  Tongue

would the grille affect whether or not you purchased the vehicle? i like a nice one, but i don't know if it's a deal breaker

In the case of the TL, the old grill on it I could live with.  It might be over done and in your face, but perhaps its strong presence still beats the weak presence of a Q45 grill.

Acura trim it in the most recent models but still it does not look "attractive" enough for me to go and look at one for a purchase.
