New manual Acura comes with features!

Postby stickicivi » Mon Nov 19, 2012 12:29 pm

Just recently read a thread on here about why manual tranny's aren't offered on more than a car's basic model. According to this article, http://rumors.automobilemag.com/want-a-manual-acura-tsx-order-the-2012-tsx-special-edition-71575.html?dis=1AF9F7DC-E900-4C47-AA71-B50487018151&#axzz2CgbT2Y1y, a new Acura will only offer a manual in their special edition line. I thought that was interesting and wanted to share.

Nice. Acura isn't really my thing, but I appreciate that they are offering some options on a vehicle. Most cars you can only get the bottom tier of accessories if you want the manual since they offer different models.

Some of the cheaper cars are better about that, maybe it's just more expensive vehicles... My Fiesta had the full run of options available with either transmission. I wonder if the Sonics around the board are the same way.

Sonics are the sake way. Nice gadgetry and options do not depend on which gearbox you buy.

Chilled or warm? I can never remember which way it is supposed to be served... :wink:

Shouldn't the subject line read "New manual Acura features features!"?

The Acura manual XS 826 was developed as an extension to the Acura manual pipette line. It integrates all features of the Acura family - its weight has, however, been reduced, and the instrument features ultra low activation forces.
A shorter pipette shaft with narrow, conical end cares for superior instrument drivability and easy access to microtubes. The pipette is supplied in a single box or in Twixs pack containing two units and one free shelf pipette holder.
There are six different Twixs packs to choose from, each covering specific volumes. The full coverage stretches between 0.1 µl to 1000 µl, thus allowing any lab to find the best suitable volume combinations.
