Definitely faster than an Accord (at the end, anyways), definitely has more features-though to Honda’s credit, probably not much more. They did a lot of trim changes in the last few years to make the RLX more competitive, and the AWD hybrid system with the dual clutch 7 speed is very good.

Only things I was shopping for to replace my Jaguar XJR. Test drove a 2016 LS560, Lincoln Continental 3.0t, and an RLX, bought the RLX. Should have driven the Infiniti too, I suspect. I love a big luxury car that rides nicely on shitty pavement that can haul ass.

I replaced my 2004 Jaguar XJR with a 2018 RLX. I too had totally forgotten about these for years, and I test drove one on a whim. It was hard to find anyone who had even tested the hybrid model, but man, what a nice car.

Get a photo of the full name and serial on those tires. I know FortNine was calling out motorcycle manufacturers for using cheap knock off versions of high end tires. Read more

You missed the ‘ice makes airplanes fall of the sky’ part.

The problem with that assumption is that acceleration (and depending on conditions) and a degree of stability under steady state throttle are the only times where an AWD car really has an advantage over any other drivetrain configurations. (Reread that last sentence because it’s real important.) Read more

Does a decked out version like this make an entry level luxury car seem silly?

Literally company policy where I work. Ironically, the parking lots at both the head office and main field office are designed to make this impossible, requiring us to back in instead. (Company policy is to pull through if possible, back in it not, only pull in if it is angled parking).

Alright, this one made me laugh. Well played.

For most people, I guess not. But limited slip differentials transform the character of a car when cornering. I would pay for one on anything; I had one added aftermarket to my own vehicle at significant expense. Differentials are one of those things that even car journalists consistently underrate. It can be Read more

I mean, friends and family are still getting notices to not carry passengers in their front seats until the recall is performed...and then told there are no loaners and the recall cannot be performed for 6-12 months. So ‘finally coming to a close’ is still a reach :-)

No limited slip diff in the Sport though :-(

Cheapest way to get two doors, 300 horsepower and a sweet ZF 8 speed transmission. I have been toying with getting a loaded AWD model-new.

Sell the '04 XJR and get a more reliable land yacht.

Winter is when I am allowed to embark on significant work on the summer car. Because winter is long, and I don’t know what I’m doing.
