I love the RLX. Initially I found the front shoulder bulge to be awkward but I change my mind. Overall the car looks really great. Again I love it. Keep it up Acura!

For the interior, the dash design could use more styling but I like that it is distinct from its competitors (it seems Mercedes, BMW, and Audi are merging their styling - and there's Lexus). My favourite part is the rear-door styling: the downward curved wood styling is awesome! Beautiful.

I am pleased that Acura is finally stepping up. I hope they could keep the momentum..

Funny. I spent a lot of time looking at that rear door interior, too! There was something very pleasing and harmonious about that which held my gaze...

This is definitely a good start for the RLX. It was stated in another review that the 8 jewel-like LED lights will be on the production model....if that is the case, then Acura is definitly on the right track.

Now regarding ammenities, the RLX should offer the following standard equipment:

Memory Driver's Seat
Power Folding Mirrors (Heated)
Heated front and rear seats
Blind Spot Indicators
Radar Based Cruise Control
Lane Departure Warning
Xenon Headlamps (low & high beam)
HD Radio with 6-disc changer (USB & Aux input)
18" wheels (PAWS); 19s (SHSH-AWD)
Oversized Sunroof w/ Power Sunshade
Rear Window Shade

Tech Package should include (in addition or replaces standard equipment mentioned above):

Nav (HD based)
ELS Stereo with HD Storage and Pandora
Climate controlled front seats
Park Distance Indicators (F&R)
19" Wheels
Reclining Rear Seats
4-Zone Climate Control
Side Window Shades
Upgraded Perferated Leather

This is a good mix of features that will allow future RLX owners to feel good about purchasing a non-tech RLX as well as the RLX with the tech package. Acura....I hope you are listening.....
