Agree, the grey in the blue is very nice. I've always had black interior and this is a very welcome change. I don't like the commonly used creamy interior.

I find the ventilated seats very welcome in the summer, front parking sensors are useful, and sunshades good for the kids.

Depending on the markets. Check Edmunds for your local pricing. My guess is that getting under invoice is expected.

European cars are for people to lease.

Anyway, saw another CX-9 yesterday outside a bookstore. Brown color, gorgeous. If the revised MDX is ugly in person, the CX-9 could gain some sales.

I know, not sure who they have in mind for Advance. With 5 people in the car you'd have to compromise the cargo room severely. I recently purchased a 2016 Advance instead.

I think it depends on if you think the third row would be useful, and if you are getting AWD. MDX has a better AWD system. A bit more cargo space.

Basically if you want the features of Advance, and want to seat 3 in the 2nd row, you'd have to get the Advance / Entertainment model. Seems stupid.

A lot of the high performance driving schools do not allow open top vehicles, so that limits the choice to such track events. S2000 is a great car for the road.
