I don't think the 3G had a very upscale look to it - something to me was off there. I think the new one looks more the part - especially NOW after that incredible update... amazing what a little finagling can do. This car is now IMO the best TL ever.
I agree, I bought a 2008 TL a few months before the 2009's came out (a few weeks before anyone knew what it looked like). And there was a lot of the new car that I liked much much better than my car. I just thought the prior generation looked dated after the new car came out.
Yes the beak needed to go and the "tramp stamp" rear looked even worse, but I passed a grey one in the dark about a week ago and thought "that car looks good"
Big improvement with the updates.
(though I have a 2011 RDX now so I'm out of the market for a few years).
