you can buy most aftermarket body parts such as the oem TL-S body kit and most preformance parts are made specifically for your car. That car is def a personal favorite

mine is pretty modded

body parts/exhaust components/suspension/brakes/interior are all the same and interchangeable--meaning you can buy parts in these categories specified for Type S even though you have the base TL-P.

TL-P means TL-Premium

TL-S is TL Type S

i dont understand why acura calls the base the Premium model oh well..

when doing engine mods just research first. i've run into instances where a throttle body spacer won't fit because of different hose fittings between the two and stuff like that. i believe different intake manifold also. electronics like wire harness and ecu are not interchangeable. TL-S has the VSA system in conjunction with the TCS system. the TL-P has only TCS system.
