#3771 of 7386 Re: Taupe interior... RL Interior Colors? [legendman]

Those made me think of Parchment leather seats with Taupe dash and door trim. Wouldn't it be great if Acura would have their web site finished on the 2005 RL download, they somehow keep us salivating "til the last dog is hung" to use an old quote from my grandfather. I have taupe in my 2000 TL and it is perfect. The new TL 2004 messed it up and I am really waiting to see and compare the Taupe and the Parchment interiors on the new RL in person.

>Actually, the dash looks more like Taupe than do the seats, which are much more pale by comparison. "Taupe: having a dusky brownish gray color" - Ceric's dictionary definition works for me.<
To be more precise, it wasn't the dash that was Taupe, I should have said it was the glovebox and knee level panels over on the driver side.
Yes, it sure would be nice if Acura would finish their website. Are they waiting until mid-October? Maybe they don't want to cannibalize the sales of the existing '04 RL models still in dealer inventory.

I know that Acura has made a business decision and that our personal need to satisfy our curiosity isn't part of its plan. However, as the fervor on this thread amply demonstrates, cars aren't simply transportation to anyone who has posted here. Acura has taken an uncharacteristic nine years to refresh the RL and the company knows full well the role that the RL plays in the lives of those who have expressed interest nationwide. Car manufacturers understand the role that cars play in our lives, for they're the ones that have successfully launched their ENTHUSIASM VIRUS(for which there is no Norton defense)over the years and have hooked each and every one of us. How intent we've been, considering HOW "taupe" is taupe?.....will there be a strip of chrome molding or is that an illusion?.......will there be a back-up camera? We've speculated about every aspect of this RL's performance and structure bcause we love what lies in prospect!!
So, then, at the very least, why has Acura not understood our mutual need? Why has the website been so selfishly incomplete at this late date? Why are there no brochures available for the faithful? Why the "aural null?" Total silence. Why, after nine years, is a further extension of time needed to satisfy Acura's long- delayed plan? What is so crucial that denial of reasonable information has become so stubborn...so dilatory? My curiosity has evolved to become hunger, followed by frustration and now borders on resentment. We need a "meal," not just the aroma of food cooking!

Yes, a brilliant post indeed! Acura better get with the program and start supporting their loyal followers/customers at this stage of the game by being a little more forthright and free with 05' Rl information. I mean it wouldn't hurt to get some more definitive information on options, configurations, and colors in order for us to solidify our purchasing plans!

"...and free with 05' Rl information."
How about "... and free with 05' RL."

Haaaa...I really appreciate the good nature of you guys as a whole...Shotgun doesn't even mind a petty correction from a picky musician and for the most part we who hunger for any more information to be gleaned from any credible source on the new RL just keep on hanging in there. Kinda reminds me of my youth and waiting for that first 2 wheel bike. It finally came and my brothers and I were absolutely estatic and the wait was worth it....

I just read somewhere that RL doesn't have adaptive cruise. OUCH!
