2006 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan AWD w/Navi System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I drive a lot, so I treated myself to the RL. For a little less than I paid I could have gotten a comparably equipped 325, but not a 330. But this car is definitely in the 5-series, or E-class field and, comparably equipped, either one would have been $15,000 more than the price I paid for the RL. Plus, I genuinely liked the RL better. I also drove the M35 which in the sport version has a comfortable seat but a harsh ride, and in the non-sport version the seat was mushy soft and uncomfortable. My RL car is very satisfying to drive. Plenty of acceleration. Great headlights. Fantastic stereo. Intuitive electronics. The real-time taffic is useful. And I think it is gorgeous.
Bluetooth, the great stereo sound, and very quiet ride.
Better gas mileage would be a big plus. Still under a 1000 miles, I am averaging 21 mpg.
