Electronic technology does seem to have passed Torrance Ca headquarters by. Virtually non of the Honda/Acura products have bluetooth or even Iphone connectivity via bluetooth or plug in as standard. I blame that nameless guy in the corner office who doesn't get this stuff. He thinks its all very complicated and way beyond his comprehension.And for that reason alone, Honda doesn't deliver bluetooth, USB connections etc.

I prefer WIFI over Bluetooth. Seriously, that's more luxury for me. ;)

I think the RLX will make a good car for Acura. This was an insider car that the old school employees wanted after Ito canceled the FR car. I would have preferred the FR v8 RL, but it was either the RLX or no RL at all. I know what decision you would have chosen. Same thing happened to the NSX as well.

No RL at all probably wouldve been okay. Or move it up in size and content to compete with the flagships

I honestly don't think Acura is ready to sell a 7er/LS460 competitor. It would likely be more of a dud than the current RL.

I'm not completely giving up on this car until it debuts. Its at least more promising than the 'new' Accord.

LOL. I do see the XTS as a likely competitor. I figure its in the same class as the A6/5er and alike, but I don't see there being much cross shopping.
