2008 Acura TL 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.2L 6cyl 5A)
Test drove Bmw 328 & 335 turned off by small interior space & expensive options (i.e. HID light for $800). Loved the engine, though. If you want sports sedan, go w/ bmw. TL is not a sports sedan, it's sporty, more like a comfortable cruiser & that's what I was looking for in a car. Test drove both regular TL & type s. Thought TL handled better & quieter. Was not too crazy about the rims & taillight treatment on type s & 4 tailpipes (look like some cheap aftermarket replacments, disappointed for 38K+ car). Like I said earlier, if you want a crusier, TL is it. No matter what Acura says as long as it's FWD, never will be a sports sedan but in daily drive, TL is enough for me.
overall interior space, navi, rear view camera, bluetooth phone
Fix rattles. Power folding side mirrors, smart key, push botton start, If type s in future, more elegant approach please. Cheap looking add ons won't make it sport sedan as long as it's FWD. Let's not kid ourselves here.
