I just Traded my manual tranny TL for a trch package RL. I loved my TL specially in the thrust department but boy this RL is a CAR! Although noticeably slower than the manual TL from a standstill, they are very comparable on the highway. In all other categories the RL wins hands down, quieter, better handling, more comfortable ride, much quieter, better nav, much improved voice recognition. The stereo is simply fabulous (big compliment from a B&W fan why can't bose make something anywhere this good for the home???). The adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation system are worth their money in gold.
Stereo, handling, comfort fanatastic gadgets that truly work and improve the overall driving expirience.
A v8 to utterly humiliate competing european vehicles would be nice:)
