Great 08 RL tech available (I was so tempted...)

Moderators - please slide this thread where it belong as I could not find "sales" type of section...

I did trans service at Pauly Acura in Highland Park, IL and noticed almost identical (better looking) RL on the lot.
I test drove it and was amazed how good of a drive it was.

Car is 2008 and has 77k miles. Other than timing belt my recommendation would be to check engine mounts and steering rack at 130k miles. Other than that, really solid pick.
No rust spots, no psgr handle rust issue, interior really nice, no bubbling, all is straight up in amazing kept condition.

Last photo shows dust on spots and based on other spots I have seen I am pretty confident this car was driven by an older person, sales guy said locally older gentlemen was the original owner...

I am still tempted to go and buy this car myself, to refresh mine... Only thing keeping me from it is, I drove mine for 8 years now - it will likely bore me to put another 8 or more... But have to say I have confidence this car can last at least 8 or more years... 9k + 1000ish tax n fees, plus timing belt 1500=that gices an amazing piece for 11500 ready to serve its master nicely and reliably... Sound like a sales person now hahaha ... Here is the link to it

And here are couple of pics as well:

This car looks great. It was probably always garaged. I noticed it doesn't have CMBS/ACC.
