I just got home with my '05 Silverstone and I can't believe it's in my garage. I sold my '97 Red/Tan/Auto, last November, so we could buy a new house. We went to the dealership to get my wife a new RL, today, and there it was... number 21. Needless to say, my wife didn't get the RL... but, I think she'll really like driving my truck! LOL!
 
Congrat :biggrin:

Post some pics for us. Did you get a manual or auto this time around? Notice any differences in the drive?
 
Congratulations!

Did you get the one at Gillman Acura?

Congratulations on your new car - I too think you should go get the RL for the wife if you want to stay married. The RL is truly a wonderful car.

"No RL for you honey, but I'll take that NSX...here are the truck keys,
gotta take this NSX for a spin, see you at home for dinner...love you!
"

:biggrin:
 
kinda sad the rl has more HP /tq than the NSX.

If they're gonna sell new ones at least make the top of the line model the kingodahill...

Dude. You are in so much trouble you just can't even comprehend. I have been down this path and I recommend that you make corrective actoin very quickly.

I took my wife to the dealership to get her an Accord once. I left the dealership with a new Corvette thinking that she could drive my old Trans Am. Big mistake.

That's was the worst year of our mairrage. Bitch Bitch Bitch Bitch Bitch. It's fair that you have 3 sportscars and I have to drive your old car. Wah wah wah wah wah. It doesn't matter who pays for the car. It matters who controls the sex.

You better go trade that truck in on at least a TL or you will NEVER hear the end of it.

Trust me. :biggrin:
 
Yes, there is a huge difference in the 6-speed vs. the automatic. As for the ride, you can't tell the difference in the 50K mile '97 and the 100 mile '05. I had a door speaker that had always been blown since I owned the '97, and I've found that even with both door speakers working the stereo still really sucks.
I bought the one at Gillman for whomever asked.
And I know, I know, I've got to do something about the RL for her. They have one at Gillman with a ground effects package, spoiler, and 19" wheels that is awsome. It's charcoal w/ charcoal wheels. By far the best looking one I've seen yet!
 
Yeah better take care of the Mrs.

I talked mine into an M3 :biggrin:
 
....thanks guys. This is the wife of 2DOBES. He brought home an 05 RL today for me. :biggrin:
We tried to post photos of them together but the file was too large. Can anyone provide some assistance?

Congrats... got the same model/year/color... I've had the same thought many times... "I can't believe it's in my garage"... :D enjoy... BTW, will your mrs. get to drive it? ... :D
 
Looks good! It's great to see Prime coming together and saving yet another marriage. :biggrin:
 
Wow, two of the best cars you could buy. I love the new RL and would love to get my wife one. She is hung up on an SL500 - I think the RL is a better car.
 
Which car you guys like better :wink:. Never thought the RL to be this huge.
