Thanks all. So once I got home and jacked it up, I started touching different areas to see where the noise was coming from. It turns out that one of the plastic covers got pushed back (probably from the deep puddles on my drive) and got wedged behind another. That forced a piece to be pushed up against the side of the AC compressor, creating the loud, intermittent noise and vibration.

Pulled the panels back into place. Done and done! A no-cost, easy fix. The best kind.

Thanks again for the suggestions!

Kinda of liked them when I thought they were OEM on genuine M late model vehicles, but seeing this I get the sense this is going to be the next "Type-R" badge....
I don't think those were ever OEM. Not all of them are cheap decals as IND Distribution actually paints the factory grilles.

re: timing belt change

Guess not something you want to play with (this is for my 2010 Acura ZDX), but curious as to why this American site "OpenBay" has it as replacing every 105,000 miles.
https://www.openbay.com/maintenance/acura-zdx

Acura recommendations:
Replace timing belt and inspect water pump
If you drive regularly in very high temperatures (over 110°F, 43°C), in very low temperatures (under -20°F, -29°C), or tow a trailer, replace every 60,000 miles (U.S.)/100,000 km (Canada).

(guess it irks me to have to drop approximately 1G on this)

Every 100 000km around here is pretty standard for timing belts. I'd start getting nervous above that. And may as well do the water pump at the same time.

The Goodwood FOS is this weekend. They’ve debuted a bunch of cars today including this stunner from De Tomaso.

Got my car back from ZR Auto today. Man, is she ever looking good. Those folks do some fine work there. It was also neat that every time I walked into their shop, they had some different amazing supercars there to look at.

We had our 2010 MDX done at a non-dealer shop at 110km, and it was only $800ish IIRC, including water pump etc. I suppose they're not *ACURA PARTS* but I don't know if that really matters on a 10 year old vehicle.

Yeah, they're great. I've had them service a couple of my vehicles, as well as apply 3M and some stripes. You'd kind of think they'd be really pricey or out of reach because of all the super car stuff they do, but they're totally reasonable.

Well, this was a 'pricey' trip (to me, at any rate) as I had a lot of work done. Paint correction, detail, ceramic coating and had them re-do my 3M. But I am so impressed with how good my car looks right now. Every single paint issue is gone. They promised that she'd come back "Looking like a 2020 in the show room", and they weren't lying.
