Well, it looks like we're gonna do three RDXs in a row, just as we did three TSX wagons.

This one will be steel metallic (*), grey interior, AWD, tech with the usual roof rack, fog lights, all weather mats, tow package, wheel locks, etc.... We've ordered the wood finish for the dash but left the leather on the steering wheel and shift know as they are. I like them.

Previous ones were identical except for color... the 15 (pre MMC) was white/cream, the 16 was Kona/cream. I'm not crazy about the grey interior but I thought the black leather would be too hot for SoCal.

Honestly, I wanted a Pilot or a Ridgeline this time around but the factory is production limited so we can't get one.

I suppose I ought to be happy because the RDX is a nice ride... it could be worse, my wife could work at TMS and then we'd have a dismal set of offerings.

(*) All of our current cars (not the kids') will be the same color.... Accord iMMD, Civic coupe and now the RDX....

I like to have it just in case.

It's very handy for carrying long pieces of wood (2x4s), pipes, the Costco Xmas tree... and in the RDX they blend nicely.

In our TSX wagons the crossbars stuck out the sides of the roof rails but it was nice in a functional way. Out-Volvoling the Volvos, I'd say.

ahh ok. graphite is a safe color. i do like the dark obsidan blue pearl with grey interior on the elite trim up here in canada. thats a beautiful combo.
