Advanced Pkg requires getting the new 16.2" split screen Res system, which unfortunately does not exactly have hi-res, and Acura like you said is pricing it ~ $2500.
So, if you want entertainment for the kidos in the 2nd row, a much better option would be to get the Tech Pkg + get two 10" iPad 4's, Wi-Fi w/16GB w/retinal display w/superior res (iPad 5 is rumored to be released soon) at a cost of ~ $500 ea. ( link title ) + two iPad backseat car mounts/holders ( link title ) available for a nominal fee (b/n $12-40 ea = $80/two for best) + $30-50 ea for ear buds/Kidz Gear headphones (link title ) for the iPads = $1,000 (pair iPad4's) + $80 (pair iPad backseat mounts) + $100 (pair Kidz Gear headphones) = $1,180 total for a very nice MDX Res alternative, with lots of versatility and potential to entertain the kidos (big and small)!

Yup, if I wanted the rear entertainment system (RES), there is no reason to buy the advanced package. As you suggested, iPad is much better option.
But, I want some features in the advanced package, not RES. That's the problem. I just hope if a dealership does some discount on that. I believe at least a couple of months it won't be easy to get a discount on MDX 2014 models.

#12894 of 13267 2013 MDX vs 2014 Toyota Highlander

What would be your choice. Obviously pricing has not been revealed for the 2014 Highlander Limited, but I believe these will be similar to the current sales prices of the 2013 MDX w/ Tech package. Your thoughts?

IMO, performance and styling/cosmetics (ext/int) goes to 2013 MDX w/tech, whereas value (feature content) and pricing (anticipated) goes to 2014 Highlander LTD w/AWD.

2 months ago negotiated a 13 MDX Tech for $37.9k plus dest/proc/tax/tags/etc. (About $40.7K OTD (VA 3% tax))
Now the same dealers (Pohanka & Radley) are up to 38.9k due to the delay in 2014s.
They sold their 13s fast thinking the 14s were coming. The delay left them short of mdx's so no need to blow out the few remaining 13s they have left in stock.
You can still get one of their black or silver models for $41.6k OTD (3% VA tax/tags).

I, too, live in the Bay Area and am interested in the awd tech model. Were you able to negotiate any off listed MSRP?

I don't think so. They don't do any discount at this moment. It is true that there are several people (for each dealership) who made a deposit to secure either first batch and the next batch on July. But, I'm gonna try to negotiate for Advanced model.
#12899 of 13267 2013 base in Dfw TX
Jun 16, 2013 (7:05 am)
The lowest the dealers are willing to go at this time for the 2013 base is around 38k..is this a good deal? Will the prices go lower if I wait for another week...when the 2014s are here?

38k for a base out the door (all in) is pretty good, but if you are adding fees/tax/etc. on top of that it is not.
You can get a13mdx tech for 38k plus all the fees/taxes in md/va.
(if need be, buy it over the phone from md/va and spend $500 to ship it to you).
