    Just leased a 2012 TL

    Just felt like announcing I am leaving the BMW game and got into 2012 fwd tech and advanced package TL. I went with the dark gray color and should get delivery Wednesday and I will be sure to post up pics!


    I would like to thank those who helped me along the way, and I will be poking my head in here often to see what the n54, n55, and s65 bring in the near future.

    Thanks,
    Frank

    Ended up getting the sh-awd with tech package, I pick it up later today. I went with the TL because dollar for dollar it was the best choice. Plus this dealership gave me a good coin for my 335

    Grammy® Award-winning recording engineer and producer Elliot Scheiner helped design the Acura/ELS Surround®32 Premium 10-speaker Sound System to reproduce music the way it’s heard in the recording studio. The system can play 5.1 surround sound DVD-A discs, the highest-fidelity sound medium available. Surround sound can also be extracted from any stereo digital source, thanks to Dolby®5 Pro Logic® II circuitry. In addition to all the source inputs of the standard TL audio system, features of the Acura/ELS system include:
    • 15GB or approximately 3,600-song hard disk drive media storage with shuffle, playlist creation, and an updatable Gracenote® database
    • DVD-A, MP3, WMA6 and DTS-compatible disc player
    • Bluetooth® Audio system to play songs wirelessly from a compatible cell phone while song data can appear on the navigation screen
    • 440-watt amplifier with digital 96 kHz sampling for crystal-clear sound
    • 10 speakers—1 per door, 2 tweeters, 1 center mid-range, 2 rear surround, 1 powered 8-inch subwoofer
    • Almost all functions can be performed by Voice Recognition

    Haha said $#@! it! This dealership just walked around the car and looked in it... The other place I told you about had a tech come out and drive it and pop the hood..
