The current vehicle is a 2006 RX400H (CPO) White with light grey leather. Fully loaded NAV,ML etc. etc.
Previous vehicles owned 2004 Prius 1997 LS400 (CPO) 2000 RX300 1997
Avalon 1992 Camry 1987 Camry 1985 Suzuki SA310 1982 Corona 1976 Corolla 1976 AMC Pacer (wifes) 1974 Chevy Nova My wife got the 1982 Corona sold at over 100,000 miles. (CPO) Certified Pre-owned sold the 2000 RX300 to my son who sold it to my manager when he bought a 2006 GS300 AWD
I just ordered a new RX400h, it had to be a special order because I wanted the Mark Levinson sound system. Dealers here in the Midwest don't stock them therefore you have to special order and wait 3 months. Apparently ML isn't common in any market except maybe California?
So by March next year I should have possession of:
2008 RX400h, Brandywine/Ivory, ML Prem Sound, Navigation, Premium Plus package, 18" alloys, heated seats, towing prep, rain sensing wipers, & wood trim.
Also i made a deal with the dealer to keep the OEM tires and I am supplying my own 5 new Bridgestone Alenza 235/55/18 to be installed by the dealer before delivery.
I did the same thing on my 07 Acura MDX (255/55/18) and I love the Bridgestone Alenza on that car.
I am big on the having the best tire for the application and most OEM tires are
not all that they could be or for that matter should be.
Current other cars:
2007 Acura MDX, (Bridgestone Alenza and Blizzak LM25 4x4 winter)
2007 Prius (replaced OEM with Bridgestone RE960AS Pole Position)
2005 Porsche Cayenne S (Pirelli P Zero summer, Dunlop Grantrek M2 winter)
Picked up my 2008 Granite Mica RX400h w/black leather & walnut, navigation and tow hitch on Thursday, 12/19/2007. It's my Christmas present to myself! Traded in my 2005 Acura MDX. The RX is a little smaller, but much more luxurious than the MDX. The new RX had Goodyears on it, but thanks to this forum, I insisted that the dealer swap them for the Michelins that were on the showroom model (they didn't want to do it, but I told them it was a deal breaker and I was leaving...it worked!) The Hybrid will take some getting used to, especially when you get in and turn the key and it's completely silent. So far I am very impressed with the RX. My wife has had 2 Lexus vehicles - an older (93) ES300 and now a 2002 SC430. Each time I took the SC in for service, the tech would put me in an RX loaner to try to persuade my to trade in my Acura...it worked! AcuraMDX.org is a great forum for the MDX, so I am hopeful that this one is as good for the RX.
