Default Acura TL vs TL Type S vs TL A-SPEC?

So I've been looking into the Acura TL for quite some time now. I really like it and my older brother had an older 2002 Acura TL that I liked a lot. I was kind of looking into the Type S because of the extra speed and the manual transmission. I just now heard about the A-SPEC and I was wondering if anybody knows the difference between the Regular, the Type S, and the A-SPEC? There isn't a lot of information on the A-SPEC that I could find on my own. And does it have a manual? Which Type would you recommend?

Also, I was wondering what your opinions were on the Acura TL in general. Which year is best? What kind of problems does it have? I'm looking for a comfortable car that will fit a few friends when I need to, I like quickness and good handling, I'm not racing or anything and I am a good driver I just enjoy the ride. I was also wondering if you have any idea how much insurance would be for this car for an 18 year old male with a clean record?

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

2006 Acura TL is when most if not all problems are sorted out.

I would recommend a manual but those are hard to find and hard to resell as many who buys Acura TL's mainly look for automatic transmissions.

A-Spec is just a body kit that dealers install onto your Acura TL if you like.

Type-S is a performance version of the regular TL
