What's funny about your reply is that I started out looking at the TL and ended up in the RL for nothing more than space. Being 6'1" @ 265lbs at the time the TL was just not going to work. But is was an absolute delight to drive. The TL now has the same AWD as the RL so you may not have to go FWD but will have to cough up more $$$$ to go that new.
They really are good cars, just not for me.
