I'm not seeing any RXs with MLs on the lots. Did you special order it to get it or what? I'm in SF Bay Area, not So. Cal.

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.

Default 2007 AWD Mica Blue

Here's mine - with pics!

2007 RX400h. All-Wheel Drive. Mica Blue. Navigation and Mark Levinson sound system. Ivory leather and wood trim interior. Stock 18-inch rims with stock Michelins. Tinted rear windows. Wheel locks, cargo net, bumper cover, and all those other profit-lard options dealers love to slap on :-)

Purchased new in March 2007 from dealership in Beverly Hills. Had 3 miles on it when I received ownership. Currently has 11,000 miles on it.

These pics are from early autumn 2007. The oceanside shots are near Cambria, California. The pic in the field is a farm my family visited in San Luis Obispo County.

Mine's a 2006 Black beauty with tan interior.
Nav/ML with rear DVD and back up camera.
Towing package (dealer installed)
38K miles so far
GY RSA's off and Michelins on (no problems since)

Next modification: screen for A/C condensor (have one made for $75 and save $1,600 )

Traded a 2003 XTerra SE/SC for it. Went from 12 mpg to 26 mpg (when I don't drive it like I stole it ) combined.
