The first car I owned was a hand me down Accord. I did subsequently buy a new Honda Accord (1990), but moved on to 1993 Toyota Camry v6 SE (the only year they offered a manual 6 - speed transmission), and then to the 1998 Nissan Maxima SE. My last two cars have been the Infiniti G35 6MT -- 2003 and 2006. I have loved all my cars and really enjoyed the G35s. When I learned that the new G (2014 Q50) would no longer come with the MT option, I decided to move on reluctantly. Just a few days ago I traded-in my 2006 G35 for a 2013 Acura TL SH-AWD 6 MT. I love my new car though I recognize that it is more of a grand tourer than a sports sedan. The $1500 'Conquest' discount, and the 0.9% interest on 60 month loan made the transition easy!

Are you a returning Acura customer?
Are you trading a lux brand on the TL?
If so, year, model, mileage, condition?

No. I just emailed him, and he emailed me back with the quotes...

Assuming 38.4k, it lives in the neighborhood of Costco [ok to good].
Disclaimer is that I don't know what THE price bottom is...
Depending on the dealer, assuming the amount includes freight and all processing fees, you might be able to bring it down another 500 to 800 to get to my known price bottom [for that, do prepare to go in to dealership and come out empty handed a couple times].
Then, you can start negotiate give-away add-on accessories such as wheel locks, touch-up paint, cargo hooks, door trim, edge films...etc
Finally, if applicable, you can bring out the conquest or loyalty to further sweeten the deal.
Do come back and post your results

There's conquest cash if you own a competing luxury brand (I think Caddy, BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Infiniti, Lexus) or if you're already an Acura customer.

My sister is looking for another car (she has an uber fast Camaro that's none too practical).
She had always liked my TL. So, she asked me to take her to my old Acura dealer where I used to buy my TLs.
Had fun catching up (and needling) my old sales persion, who was very helpful.
Anyway, she picked out a '13 SH AWD Tech Advance to test drive.
I had forgotten how good these care really are. For grins, the sales person let me get back behind the wheel for a bit.
They are offering really good deals on these cars. And, they are really good cars, regardless of the measuring stick you use.
It's not as fast as my S4. But, it handles nearly as well. It has all the tech goodies. Great sports seats. And, I had also forgot how good the ELS stereo is.
Still amazes me how really good these cars really are for the money they charge.

So what's the graphicguy one offer, skinny deal price (before tax)?

Nyc....she's all over the map on what to buy. Personally, I think the TL is perfect for her. Plus, it's a personal favorite of mine. But, it's not my money.
If she decideson the TL, I'll "do my thing" and post the deal here.
BTW... congrats on the "new Honda".
