This page will chronicle modifications to a 2008 Acura TL. The first area of focus will be on the audio system, which sounds relatively good but is showing its age in terms of integration of phone/iPod/USB function.

I recently completed the installation of the Beltronics / Escort / Passport SmartCord in the TL. The writeup can be found here: Acura Radar Detector Installation

For now I am working on cataloging posts and links of value.

Crutchfield has a fairly solid overall profile of the car: Crutchfield Profile – 2004-2008 Acura TL

The input option of choice will be the Grom HON1U3. The Users Manual is available here.

I also picked up a PAC USB input to give a solid USB mounting option for the source from Amazon.

Several threads on AcuraZine have helpful info on trim remove to gain access to the HU:
