    @gohawks -- just wondering, did you ever a thumbs-up on your previous Acura?

    I've gotten several thumbs-up on my CTS sedan, and continue to get compliments on it from random people in parking lots, etc. I think the Thunder Gray paint has a lot to do with it. The coupes of course are on a whole different level!

    I can't recall definitively, but I'm sure I've had passengers tell me "nice car", but I never had people on the road give me these types of compliments.

    Resurrecting this thread.


    Today driving into work. I am in the far left lane on the expressway no one in the middle.

    You know when you get this feeling someone is watching you? I look over in the far right lane and there is a guy staring at my car. We make eye contact and he gives me a nod of approval and then drives off.

    On the way home tonight on the same highway I happen to look in my rear view mirror and I see this CTS sedan behind my in the next lane over to the right. He had his phone propped above the steering wheel and you could tell he was snapping pictures. After he finished he backed off and got off the next exit.

    I've been telling all the new coupe owners to be prepared for; many jaw drops, many stares, and a ton of conversations about the car. I can not put into words how awesome this car is!

    Later on I was getting gas. A guy who was in the station, gets in his car, backs out and as he pulls away he slows down, rolls down his window and says, "she is beautiful! Does she wanna make you drive fast?"

    I can't remember getting this much attention with any previous car I've had.

    Re: Getting Coupe Love

    I am going to resurrect this thread to tell a quick story about my coupe getting love too. I was at the grocery store parking lot in my car on the phone. While on the phone, I saw this guy gawking at my car. I got out of my car to go inside, and this guy asked to take a photo and he said "now [I]that[I] is a beautiful car." This car gets so many positive comments from strangers. The more I hear comments like that, it may just be that I'll be keeping this car for longer than my usual 3-4 year cycle.

    Re: Getting Coupe Love

    To some of the younger owners of the Coupe (you may want to take extra special care and hold on to it); I'm thinking this car to become a classic; relative low numbers (production), beautiful design and quite of few others (of the same vintage) unremarkable, this car is special.

    Black diamond has metal flake in it..... A lot of it.

    On a cloudy day or at night the black diamond just looks black. When the sun hits it or under lights, all that metal flake picks up the light and you get an almost three dimensional look to it. It looks like you can reach right into the paint.

    It's not just metal flake, rather 'small pearls' of metal flake encased in a ball of gel. A pint of black diamond costs $596.00!

    Big difference in black raven vs. black diamond. BIG difference.
