Sorry, but that auto mag is wrong. They made an error. The MDX got a MMC for the 2010 model year. While a diesel option is likely I expect no other changes to the MDX until the complete redesign in 2013 (Fall 2012).
By the end of september the 2011 MDX should start rolling in to dealers. Typically, Acura will discount the remaining 2010 Inventory by offering incentives of $1,000-$2,000 (more if there is a redesign). I expect the $1,000 incentive to start soon.
By the way, Acura sent me a coupon for $700 off my next MDX/TL purchase provided I take delivery by August 31, 2010. So, in September my $700 coupon expires but I expect Acura to raise the incentive to $1,000 (no coupon needed).

I wonder where Automobile Mag got their image, then.
Although, it does seem like there aren't any real changes from the 2010 model.

is there any way to confirm the diesel option? I'd hold out for one of those which is the reason why mum is the word.

I am really glad to hear that they're not redesigning the MDX. I just bought mine and then read that article. I'd hate to buy right before a redesign. What is an MMC?
#10048 of 12908 Minnesota Tech.

I am looking to buy a new 2010 Tech package in the MSP twin cities area. I looked around and found the best deal at 44218 with taxes, accessories and title/ tag. Does anyone have a better price in mind in that area?
I also looked in the Chicagoland area and found a quote of 41559. Can I buy a car from a Chicago dealer and register the car in MN? What are your usual thoughts about getting a car from a different state?
Between WI, MN and IL, whats the best state in terms of taxes and tag etc?

You can't possibly expect to get any useful response with the way you quoted a Tech price. There are like 50 dealer installed accessories to choose from so you can spend $0 or $4/5K on them. Add to that the tax differences by state, doc fees different by dealer, and you can see where I'm going.
My advice is to compare model pricing without accessories and specific accessory pricing. You can deal with out of state if you want but it's more of a hassle.

I have been emailing everyone about the accessories I want. The accessories I want are:
1. Remote Engine Starter System
2. Engine Block heater.
3. All-Season Floor Mats
4. Side Steps
It seems like only half of them call back with a price detail on the accessories. The dealers who put a quote on these come to a price of about 2000 for these additions. Hence, with a lack of accessory price quotes from more than half of th dealers, I have settled to comparing base tech quotes to narrow my search.
Going back to my original questions:
1. What would it take you to go 400 miles to another state to buy a car? How hard is it to do that?
2. Whats the best dealership in the MSP area? How much are they willing to go down on their quotes?

I can't speak for better deals in different states where you are. I live in RI and I look at dealers in RI, MA and CT. I can tell you that you will pay sales tax in the state in which you register the car.

So I will pay for the car (including options, destination and documentation), and for temporary registration fee at the dealership itself. Then I will drive the car to my home state --> register it and pay for taxes, license and other charges to the DMV/ Secretary of state at the local rates.
Did I get it right?
