So has anyone bought underbody TSX parts for their accord?

Someone said a long time ago that the TSX/TL has these large plastic aero parts that go under the car and smooth out the airflow, thus decreasing drag under the car and increasing efficiency. Has anyone seen if these parts fit the Accord, and if so, which ones? I remember a website much like hondaautomotiveparts.com, but for acura, and you could see the parts breakout. Can't find it anymore. Anyone?

I looked briefly at 04 TL-S and didnt see any underbody aero parts.

I notice some of the body kits with bumpers for the 7th gen have what looks like tunnels but I'm guessing they don't serve any purpose other than cosmetic.

why not look at the 3d car views on acuas site and see if the bottom has underbody parts or not they usually show a pretty acurate picuture of the undercarrages.

Look for "front fender" there are 2 parts, lower engine cover and splash guard. Wondering if these would fit. The guy that did that review of the Accord undercarriage on video mentioned parts that may be adaptible, wondering if anyone bothered.

I honestly dont think that they would help under 200mph. Not noticable anyway.

The engineers at Acura must feel differently.
