How can I argue with a hostess... (Good to see you are keeping an Eagle eye on this tired old forum, Pat.) Actually though for me...When I see an RL, a Lexus, a Mercedes, or a BMW coming down the road I'll quickly look but I still do a double take on the RL. I love the subtle lines, the unheralded handsome good looks of the RL. I don't know about a V-8 in their plans but it is rumored that Acura is bringing on a powerful diesel 6...now that could be interesting. They have also refined the SH AWD in the 2009 and I can't imagine bringing on a RWD now.

Oh, I'm always here and it's always very good to see you, George and everyone else. You all should come around more often!!
Personally, I do like the understated looks of the RL. I was just saying what I read. I guess we'll see what happens down the road. A diesel would be quite interesting!

Yesterday I purchased an RL for $ 42500 in Bay Area Ca. I had to hassle with the trade but I got with my Lexus RX 330 1k less than blue book.
Previously I tried out Lexus 350 and found it very fast but felt like I was in a sardine can, way to small for me. Also tried out a GS 460, luxury, fast, and very expensive at least for me.
Just for me, I feel the Acura RL gives more for the money than the same priced Lexus. And I still love Lexus, but having owned two prior "Acura Legends, one excellent and one a pos, (89) I am looking forward to a good 100-150k miles.
Good luck to all and stay safe.

Good luck and stay safe to all.

#7262 of 7386 Tab on Gear Shift

Looking at a 05 RL. The little tab on the upper left corner is missing and there is a hole there. Should I be concerned about this missing?? What is this for??

If it's what I think you're talking about, it's the Shift-Lock override. Aside from asthetics, it's nothing to worry about. Though I would ask if the car had to be towed for some reason and why.
