That is what I drive too. I bought a 2002 RL in January for $20,000.

I think the Acura RL is the best kept secret in luxury sedans. Almost as nice as a Lexus LS430 but much cheaper. Yeah, it doesn't have a V8, but so what.

I assume you are talking about the previous generation. The current is roundly blasted for a)being FWD b) having a horrid interior c) being ridiculously overpriced for what you get. The sales #s back that up, RL is doing terrible in sales.

I personally do like the model you gents have...

I have just had an engine remap on the Smart ForTwo. BHP up from 61 to around 85.

Gear changes are 33% faster and 6th gear is now usable.

It flies from 30-60 if you keep the revs up!

Really? I'm in Canada and still them all the time. A few days ago, I saw a parade of about 120 (it was a charity ride, or something similar). The ForFour is still not available in Canada though.

Yes, they do. I've seen Smarts in Indianapolis.

Are sure they weren't testing them? I could swear that they aren't being brought into the US yet and are being tested in a few cities (NYC being one of them).

Don't have any nice pics of her with me, but I drive a 2003 Saab 93 Arc in Steel Grey.

I'd love to get one, but I dont think they will pass California emission standards.

Smarts will be officially available in the US next year when they introduce the new model ForTwo.

They have been on sale in Canada for a while.

There are some in the US as specialist imports, and official testing may also be ongoing.



Those who live somewhere with a reliable climate and have a few quid should try for a used Crossblade-
