Hello there gents, I figured I would introduce myself since I will most likely be spending alot of time on here once they finally release the SI. :haysmiley:

Im driving a 2004 Acura Tsx, which might be sold soon. :woowoo:

Sweet Good to hear. Luckily, through some nice connections I have dibs on the first blue one at my local dealership.

Nothing really done to the TSX. Took a break on tuning after my last 99' SI.... but soon to change with the 2012.

Can't wait to see what you do, what color is your TSX? My grandmother has one of the red ones, and they discontinued that color, but everyone wants, the dealerships have offered her over KBB a couple times something you might wanna check out

Welcome to the 9th! It's nice to have contacts in the right places, you must be anxious counting the days down to picking it up.

3 AC compressor that's unusual, I've heard of 2 because of not flushing the metal filings out properly from the 1st one.

Yea im having the fourth compressor put in next week. Luckily, my warranty had taken of the first three... but not so lucky anymore. Its too hot in Fl to be riding around with out it. The last one actually blew and pieces of the compressor were everywhere.

Did they change the filter, receiver dryer, and condenser stuff could be shifting loose and damaging the compressor if anyone of those won't changed.

Do you miss your em1? I'm afraid I will too, but I know I'll be moving on to bigger and better things with this Si. We've been through a lot though my car and I. Lol

I totally miss my old SI. Thats the one and only car that I regret selling. But that being said I am def looking forward to building this new 2012 SI. I think suspension is going to be my first add on. Looks too high in my opinion, but thats most cars. I think lowered with some nice 18's or 17's will make this car pop. Hopefully Eibach comes out with a set of springs soon after the release. fingers crossed

Two slightly different shades of Dyno Blue Pearl

So apparently due to some production issues there will be two slightly different shades of DBP. I wonder if its going to be very noticeable....:eusa_think:

What does a nonsense Consumer Report have anything to do with pigment issues?

Translation - they're using 2 different suppliers for the same color it looks like.

I do wonder what it means though - I'm waiting on a DBP. :(

Interesting stuff. I already knew there was a shortage of blue and red paint in Japan so defiantly looks like they are going elsewhere for the paint. Perhaps it will depend on which factory it comes from? or maybe someone mixing paint made a boo boo and they're using it anyways. LOL
Its possible the different shade will be for the Si's too.
I'm sure it just has a slightly lighter tint to it. Good for those that prefer lighter over darker if thats the case. Cant wait to see what the other shade looks like when someone has a real pic of it.

Updated my signature to reflect this. lol
