Regarding the Gen4 Rx vs X5, I will throw you there that I recently evaluated the prototype of BMW's next X5 as well as a prototype of the all new X7. The new X5 seemed like just an LCI (a mid-cycle...

That's a terrible deal. With incentives, he should have been able to get it for a little under invoice (in other words a few grand less than what he paid).

Agreed. I dumped our RX for a 2014 MDX which drives a lot better and gets much better fuel economy (and has a 3rd row).

As far as styling, I did recently evaluate the next gen BMW X5 and X7 (2016...

When I drive like I normally do (ie lead foot) I get about 26mpg on the highway. That includes averaging 80mph and flooring it while accelerating. I am able hit 30+mpg only when intentionally driving...

Well, I'll chime in on how my 2014 MDX compares to my 2011 RX350 on gas mileage since they are direct competitors. Both are AWD, and in the Lexus the best I could do on a round trip from LA to Palm...

Oh, but corn can be soooo good in some cases. Maybe not in my RX350 (in which I use crappy 87 octane), but in my Nissan GT-R, I get 630hp with 91 octane, 670hp on 100 octane, and a whopping 710hp on...

Forgot to mention it's an AWD and 87 octane. I haven't noticed any difference in fuel economy between 87 and 91. If anything, it seems as if I get higher mpg with 87.

2011 with 26,000 and my wife gets 13.8-14.5mpg city driving. Went to Vegas and got 22mpg doing 85mph and a lot of passing. Got 25mpg on the way back going 65mph.

I get 15mpg in the city. Lots of stop and go traffic in LA. Avg speed is about 12mph. I also get 24mpg on the highway but I drive 95% city so I'm ready to dump my RX350 for an RX450h.

I would have to disagree. My 2009 BMW M3 had the upgraded Harmon Kardon system and I thought it was significantly better than my wife's 2011 12 speaker RX350 system. I listened to the Levinson...

Don't get another Rx. Between the two of you, you already have an SUV, so get something fun like an IS-F. One sports car and one SUV.

That's pretty funny. I don't think I would ever think of my wife's RX as a sporty SUV. Really, what's the point of an F-Sport RX?

You can do better on the price. I bought my RX for $1500 UNDER invoice, but that was on December 31st, and dealers are usually giving cars away on that day.

FYI - you don't have to buy a "Stealthcord" for this. If you have any extra telephone wire laying around the house, you can make your own. I did this and it worked great.

5000 miles on the clock and we average about 15mpg in the city, and 24mpg highway. Should have gotten a hybrid or diesel.
