We've already seen the big-nosed front end reveal of the 2009 Acura TL, but Flickr user buckeye01 managed to snag a beautiful close-up set of pics while out at the links. We finally get an up-close look at the rear of the new TL and also a peek inside. Unfortunately, all we see in the cabin is some shapely dash elements, and perforated leather seats. At the back we see a pair of dual-quad exhaust tips, huuuuuge bumper mounted reflectors, tasteful tail lights and a nice use of chrome. Does that make this the 2009 Acura TL Type-S?
We also see what we're assuming are smaller, optional five spokes which weren't in the officially released image. What we can also see here is the highly controversial front fender bulge seems a heck of a lot less pronounced when in in the light of day. Now if only that weird grille would look different with the sun shining down. (Hat tip to Darius)
