    a stupid idea.

    Acura has failed as a luxury division of Honda for two reasons,

    1. Hondas cost $10,000s less and are just as goo0d, and some have even better styling than the acura re-badge,

    2. Acura styling is weird-aggressive in a silly way, esp. the MDX and RDX snouts. I don't care how many comparison tests they win, they look ludicrous up front.

    Wow, Thor you just don't like anything this morning....lol

    Anything that can get the new word out about Acura is an idea worth looking into. Obviously regular media advertising isn't doing anything to help them, so why not try something else?

    No, I like Hondas quite a bit, and as I explained above, how good they are is the major reason Acura did not fly as well as Lexus or other luxury makes.

    Why would anybody buy the Acura TL, which is a rebadged Accord V6 for $5,000 more?

    Why would anybody buy the MDX and RDX when they are rebadged Pilots and CR-Vs, and worse looking ones too, for 10,000s more?
