My :2cents:

Most people acquiring $60k cars are not buying them, they are leasing. And if you can actually buy a $60k brand new car then your pockets are deep enough to not really care so much...

Would he consider a 2014 TL SH-AWD? Cheaper than a 15/16 TLX, same power and performance, more fun than an ILX.... If I were set on an Acura sedan, that's the one I'd target. FWIW, the ILX seems to...
