I drove Honda/Acura sedans for about 25 years before coming to BMW, and I test drove the hell out of the TL before I bought my BMW.

The 2008, if I recall, was the last year of the previous gen of TL - which was probably the best version of that car ever built. It had a ridiculous amount of torque steer though, a flinty ride (worse than a ZSP with RFTs), and all the handling traits of a heavy FWD vehicle. It was a great car for what it was, but doesn't compare to anything in the E9x line.

I will say that the NAV and cabin ergonomics in the 2008 TL still kick the crap out of anything that BMW sells. So, in that sense, Acura has BMW beat.
