#13 of 23 New 2007 RL Owner Here
Jul 31, 2007 (6:37 am)
I just picked up my 2007 RL a few weeks ago from Bridgewater Acura in NJ and was able to leverage the $3500 manufacturer to dealer incentive. They did not have the car/color on the lot (which is to be expected this time of the year) but they managed to locate the exact car I wanted in CT and they trucked it to NJ.
I compared the RL against the Infiniti M35x and the Lexus ES/GS and chose the RL with Tech Pkg, because of the comfort, creature features and price when comparably equipped. I am very satisfied thus far and my only changes to the car would be a larger trunk and different wheels, but I'm being picky!

I'm thinking about trying for a 2007 tech RL myself, and am not far from Bridgewater. Would you mind sharing what the final price was, and doc/title fees? I'm wondering if they are available below $40k now, given that the 2008's are coming out, and the $3500 allowance. thanks in advance!

I paid $46K "out-the-door" (car +tax, title, destination, DMV, etc.)

Thanks, rettenhu. I'm guessing the actual price was about $42,500. That's nicely below invoice, but I was hoping for even lower. Maybe later in the Summer - if there are any left.
Any differences from the 2008 model?

Yupp... about $42,500 sounds right. From what I have been reading there are no changes to the 2008 model except for a minor price increase. If you have a specific color combination you are interested in and want a 2007, then I suggest you don't wait much longer. None of my local dealers had what I wanted in stock.

I can also start mine without the key fob, although the other day it asked me for the code before it would start. I wish I knew where the key fob was!

#21 of 23 Pre-owned '07 RL
Apr 08, 2009 (1:26 pm)
I just bought a pre-owned certified '07 RL from the dealer with 15k miles on it. The car was for wife and we traded in '03 TL with the purchase. We were actually looking at CPO BMW '07 530i model with options, such as premium package, heated seats, and navigation. In southern Calif. area, there were very few cars with these options loaded in the car. After couple months searching, I searched for a pre-owned RL, which has been one of my favorite cars, and found two used '07 at the dealer in L.A. After my wife test drove the car, she loved everything about the car and all the options came with the car. The car is perfect and we will keep it for a while.
#22 of 23 pre owned 07 RL with CMBS
May 23, 2012 (8:32 am)
Just reading this thread as I'm pretty close to purchasing an '07 RL with pax/CMBS......
Car has high mileage (110,000) but I negotiated a price of $14,500 which we both felt was fair.
Car is being inspected tomorrow at the Acura Dealership and if it passes I will be buying the car..
Wish me luck!!
