The RL, and it doesn't work very well. First off, I cant see it when i'm driving. I'm not blaming acura for this, because I can see the important things (unlike the little tach and speedo in the 3 that I cant see from under my sleeve). I've never gotten that meter to sway very far one way or the other, and I've tried pretttty hard. It's definitely a cool showoff feature, though. I just wish they'd get it put in the nav screen where I can see it while I do things to make it change.

Going sideways and staring at a little bar right above the steering column doesnt make for a great combination.

They're not too expensive anymore. Most people are getting them in the low 40s and way off MSRP. Much to the chagrin of my father, who was one of the first to buy his. I'm not sure you can beat it at that price if you're looking for an awd commuter car. Reliabilty and comfort are definitely its strongpoints.

I like the RL, only if it had more hp and got better gas mileage.

I like it as well. It's pretty fast up top. I love the sound system and the nav and how the change-stuff-on-the-car-by-voice stuff actually understands what i'm saying. The paddles are realllly slow though. You better press them 800rpms before you want it to shift, at least!
