I also live in Indy (Fishers) and I use Ed Martin and they will give you a loaner car if you make an appointment and ask for one. Otherwise, they usualy have given them all out to others who have made service appointments. They gave me a 2004 RSX as a loaner last time. Their service was good. I plan to return to them, but only for service. They do not deal well with new car prices. Hubler Acura blew them away on my RL price.

Here is how my deal on the RL was written up (at Rizza Acura in Orland Park)....
Sales price of 05 RL = $46,500
Trade value of 02 Audi = $20,500
Trade value researched on Kelly Blue Book and NADA on my Audi was $19,500, and 3 other dealers (an Audi Dealer, a Honda Dealer, and an Infiniti Dealer offered me between $19,200 and $20,000 for the Audi as trade, so Rizza gave me the best deal on the trade).
This price also included a trunk mat, wheel locks, trunk cargo net, all-season floor mats, and a wood shift knob. They also threw in 3 years of "free" paintless ding repair. A company comes to you and will repair unlimited number of door dings within a 3 year coverage period. This is apparently a routine mark-up item on Rizza cars and although I was somewhat indifferent about it, they included it at the end. Plus, we got 3.5% financing from American Honda Finance to seal the deal. It was the best rate I could find on a conventional loan.
I estimated the price of the RL at $45,500 since I got about $1000 more trade value on the Audi, plus they threw in some options that had a collective retail price of at least another $500. They had about 6 RL's on the lot that day, and as soon as they saw we were serious, they got it done relatively painlessly.
1800 miles on our RL so far, and it is a very nice car.

I am being offered a quote on the above for $20,850. It currently has 48,423 miles on it. 1 owner (I checked carfax) and mint condition. I live in NY and car is being sold in Texas. Is that price adequate or too much? I checked Edmunds and KBB and the appraisal value is a bit under the selling price? Any help here is appreciated.

Sorry for the delay in responding, just saw your post today. I paid $46,900 in early February. They threw in a rear deck spoiler, all weather floor mats, trunk liner, wheel locks and warranted paint protection (which appeared to be a glorified wax job, but with a warranty paper). I was extremely pleased, and Ed Martin would not come close on the price--even though the sales person is a client of mine! Good luck!
#298 of 1111 RL in So Cal

2005 RL Carbon Gray Pearl/Ebony on May 9, 2005
Price: $43714 (matched Edmunds listed invoice)
Destination: $570 (also matched Edmunds price)
Total $44284 plus TTL, no trade, brought my own money (no financing); dealer threw in splash guards and wheel locks. Didn't want trunk tray or all weather mats.
I think I did ok.

The dealers apparently have gotten a little relief on the back end from Acura, I wish I knew
how much? This is the first move into moving 2005 inventory with 2006 creeping up.
Invoice price can be had probably anywhere now, just throw the deal down and walk and tell them to call if they have any interest. They even did an invoice deal with no financing, which is good! If you use their financing so long as it's good, you could probably work a better deal, although every day/week/month we get closer to 2006, the deal will only get better.
I am inclined to wait since we are only a couple of months away from saving a couple thousand more.

I have that same car but with only 18,000 miles. Couldn't sell it to you at that price as my lease is still over $25K owed (4 years due June 2006). So that's not a bad price. But under $20K would make it a great price IMHO.
#301 of 1111 SW Fla Prices?
May 24, 2005 (4:25 pm)
Anyone leased RL recently in SW Fla...from Tampa, Ft. Myers, Miami, etc? What kind of deal did you get? I am looking at 36 month/45K lease. I have info on what MF and Residual numbers should be...looking for sale price info. Thanks in advance for any info...

Take a look at the acura.com website for the special $599 lease deal for a 36 months/36k, I think Acura will have to get more aggressive to move these cars, there will be some great deals on a 05 with 06 approaching nevertheless. My bet is the dealers will still have 05 inventory on the lot late into late into the year, which is where you will see a great deal on one.
