Have driven the Accord and it is a lot of car for the money. Strangely enough, the lumbar support couldn't adjust to a point where I was comfortable. Did test drive a Volvo S60 AWD. The seats are hands down the most comfortable I have ever experienced. Only down side is a smallish back seat.
My end game may be to not have any car payment and buy a good pre-loved Acura RL or Volvo S80.

Perhaps you have to set up the bluetooth in the 08 RL. Also some phones and HFL modules are different.

It's set up correctly as it's been working. I just find it strange that all the other Acura's such as the TL and the MDX have an indicator and the RL doesn't.
#7270 of 7386 RL taillight question
Jun 07, 2008 (10:25 am)
Hi! I am a newbie here with a parts question. I have an acura rl 03. I recently hit the rear drivers side taillight and unfortunately broke the red plastic. The bulb and all else is okay...I have been checking online to replace and I am finding that there seems to be two different looking parts. One assembly has red and clear plastic (mine) and one has red, clear and yellow plastic. My taillight has a yellow bulb for the turning signal. I have the navigation package. (there is currently part for sale on ebay but does not look like mine). Some web sights selling this part do not show the photo in color. I am confused, and really was hoping to find this part second hand vs new. Anyone know if there are two different types for my rl? thanks!
#7271 of 7386 Very Interesting...

Here's a quote that caught my eye:
Acura’s next supercar is said to be powered by a 550 horsepower 5.5L V10 derived from the V8 to be used in the company’s all-new RL sedan...
It's an article about the next NSX located here. Hmm... I'm easily seduced by a V8. Now let's see if it cuts the mustard with the competition (and isn't FWD or front-biased AWD.)

Nice find. I kind of have the new car fever but with so much going on and changing every day I am just not ready to take the plunge.
That new RL sounds interesting if it comes to pass but I think it might be prudent to have at least one high mpg car in the garage. Either some type of hybrid or the new diesel technology. Supposedly Honda is working on a new hybrid for under $20K that will blow the Prius away.
#7273 of 7386 '03 Taillight query
Jul 03, 2008 (10:51 am)
The '03 & '04 RLs are the same car, and have a clear plastic for back-up and turn signal, on the taillight. Available new at many on-line Acura parts places places (ex:Delray Acura, "AcuraOEMparts.com" for about $215). I backed my '98 into the tire barrier, turn 6 at Watkins Glen. Used replacement (looked new) for $100, from Brims Import. Have a '04 now, actually built in April '03!

#7275 of 7386 RL replacement tires
Aug 08, 2008 (7:28 am)
I'm about to choose replacement tires for my '05 RL. Has anyone purchased the Michelin Pilot Sports A/S? If so, how do you rate them,
for both traction and noise, compared to the OEMs?
Would appreciate any news .
#7276 of 7386 Saw It In Person
Aug 08, 2008 (9:00 am)
I got a rear 3/4 glance of the new RL at the dealership last week. It's not nearly as ugly in person as it is in photos. It actually didn't look too bad at all. Will have to look more closely at the whole car...
