I was in TN yesterday and came across a transport vessel which had approximately 10 RLX's. I've snapped many photos and need assistance posting them here.

Up load them online somewhere, view them online, right click them and copy link URL. Go here and in a MSG, type in " [I M G] past the URL you copied, and end it with [/I M G] for every picture. HTML. Very simple stuff. Do the [ IMG ] tags with out the spaces though.

After seeing this vehicle in person and after only owning Honda/Acura vehicles for the past 12 years, i would say that i'm moving on to a different auto brand.
This new RLX interior is impressive, and thats all it is from my humble personal opinion.
I'm dumbfounded that this new application of luxury has yet to implement a complete use of led lighting (parking lamps, turn signals, license plate lamps ....) ala Mercedes and BMW. Its a new vehicle, how much more would it have cost? Consumers would be paying $50,000 plus for a front wheeler, so where are the leds?
Observing the undercarriage, i noticed that Honda has moved from perfecting hidden parts designs to just hideously hiding them. Please look my the exhaust muffler for reference. What were they thinking? Even if hidden, they had previously managed to keep the exhaust attractive as in the 2nd generation Rl's. This exhaust looks cheaply made and poorly executed.
Now come to design, this vehicle looks very bland, and very ordinary in a parking lot. The vehicle's lines are smooth, but boring, and i see no room for modification or sport packaging.
For reference, i'll post my current car photos.


I'm not bashing Honda or putting it down, but even the 2009-2011 RL with the funny grill seems more attractive than this one.

Thanks for the detailed pics. I know I always get excited when I see a transporter filled with any new cars!

I'm still wondering about the rationale for hiding the exhaust - some sort of rear diffuser and twin exhaust tips would have done wonders for the rear and would have visually connected it to the front. Acura did this well on the RL refresh. The red, lower reflectors just don't seem enough of design element to make them worthy of surrounding in chrome. That's pretty GM. And I don't see any additional aero bits at work under there...

That said, I can see Acura at some point offering an accessory rear bumper cover that includes a combo diffuser and cut-outs for quad exhaust tips - all bolt-ons. I'm almost sure that Acura is offering this option on some car right now?!

Your RL looks good. I'd like to see a side shot if possible...and what's that symbol on your plates?
