I did the same. I know there are others around who have also done so, but I've never spotted any. Surprisingly, my brother is the only person who's ever asked me what my personalized plates mean.

My extended family has a long, happy history of Acura and Honda ownership. They've been fine cars.

Would I consider an RDX? No.
