Power isn't the problem with Acura. Quality, features, and design are.

That's why they can't sell sedans - the entire brand is being propped up by SUV's.

It's almost 2015. Magazines are still using Photoshop to slap together images?

Come on - new 5 won't look like a big 3. The 5 *NEVER* takes its cues from the 3.

and this was from March.

Updated map/Reset navigation/direction logic?

so i updated to the 2015 maps, and now the "logic" to direct me is TOTALLY different (telling me to go around exits, take roads I would never take, etc.).

Is there ANY way to reset the logic?

This is like 4-zone climate control. Way cheap if you get it on a new car, VERY expensive to retrofit. I wouldn't even think about doing it.

This is an incredibly stupid thread.

$110k vs. $65k. Yes, I'm comparing 650i with 535i, but you get the idea.

"design.. muscular.." seriously?
