Have you guys seen this fucking Acura ad they've been running on ESPN? I thought it was a joke the first time I saw it. Apparently they're going after the Patrick Bateman market.

I agree. For me its about 40% though. Transparent mod? Or stick it in your images and pull it up via 'recently used'.

Yeah, I saw it. Not impressed.

I saw that ad too. to be fair, Lexus started this ad positioning of appealing to assholes who think they're better than everyone else and I've seen BMW and Mercedes use it too. but yeah, this is a whole other level of assholism

hey, it's pretty cool that my ipad autocorrect accepts "assholism" as a legitimate English word laugh2-smiley.gif?1292867631

Must see this ad.

"you wake up in your luxury bed and get out of your luxury sheets and get into you luxury shower.......then you get into your luxury car and it makes it all not seem so luxurious." Pair with pictures of modern home and fancy coffee maker and LED headlights. felt more like social commentary then an advertisement.

Whoosh. I use Sbx so this obviously is not relevant to my interests.

haha, has anyone driven an acura recently? i sat in some at the car show, nicely equipped, decent looking but rather boring and hard to have a full impression without taking it for a ride. The Equus was right next to the Acura display and that stole my attention.

I've test driven the MDX a couple of times. Cockpit feels cheap, engine is weak, but they have great residual and I am sure the Honda drivers that are now earning enough to get into Acura are very happy with them.

I don't even know what a luxury shower is...??

my experience with test driving them is a bit dated (4 years ago), but it was terrible enough that I've never considered them since. not really that luxurious, ugly looks, inadequate power, terrible torque steer on the front drive models - they weren't too competitive. their multimedia features were very cool though

Yeah, I think their biggest customer pool is the Honda driver that has increased their cash flow. It's not that they're bad cars, as I've read they are very reliable and well designed, it's just they are uninspired and uninspiring in so many ways.
