My new 2006 RL!!

Hi, new here.

Just bought a silver 06 Ex-L with under 80000miles for $10k usd.

It's actually 127000 kms for $14000 CAD.

Barley a scratch on it and the engine is clean. It also came with a hard top.

Bought it because I wanted something family friendly but at the same time can carry drywall, lumber and handle all my tools. I also wanted something that will last me 400000kms with the least amount of trouble possible.

Call me crazy but I think this vehicle looks awesome. Seriously can't stop starring at it! It has a stance about it that I really like. Like a bulldog.

The trunk inside a trunk (trunkception) is unbelievably handy. And the ride quality is what you expect from a quality Honda/Acura. I've driven Many vehicles but this one is in a class of its own. Too big to be in smallville and too small to be in bigville. However, it's big enough! Nothing really like it out there.

Pros:
Ride quality and versatility.
Lots of space.

Cons:
06 lacks current technology.
Tiny bit underpowered of you have a heavy foot.




ROC on!

Welcome to the ROC...

Great Pictures

Good Luck and Enjoy the Ride!!!
You're gonna love that vehicle, guaranteed! :smile:
You guys think I got a decent deal?

Or

Should I have bought something else with that money?
Welcome to the club.

Bought my '06 2 weeks ago for a lot more than than you paid.

So you you got a good deal, probably because it's silver.

HA!
Welcome to the ROC and congratulations.
there is an accident claim on the car report but i couldn't tell.
nice Truck..I'm also new to the club,

how do you like your topper/ bed cover?
I do. I find the topper very useful. It doesn't take away too much away from the original looks.

your truck tho is very sexy. I want to add some accessories like front grill, side steps and a roof rack. Also maybe find a place to paint my rims black....

I also find that I sit lower than other suvs. is that my tire size or rim size? Kinda like it low tho.

thanks.

Thanks.. I wanted to go for a classy/sporty look.. I live in Jacksonville, FL so everyone has trucks that looks like they are going muddin'

Since I use to live in Boca Raton and go there from time to time. I wanted a truck that I can park next to a Land Rover, or a BMW and have them look twice.

As far as sitting low.. and your question , it's just the stance of the truck. you can do soemthings to give it height, you can get taller tires to bring it up a little but your going to mess with the speed-o-meter.. there is a guide line that someone put up that was very helpful in choosing the rims and tires and what you have to do to make it work, right down to taking the fenders off if you went bigger and other mods. Then you can lift it. I try to stay away from changing it from factory , things starts to break when you start changing too much.

I went the biggest tire without mods on 20". So I don't rub when I make a hard right or left. Our turn radius is not the best in the first place. but it didn't have the height. The bigger rim and the wide tires makes it look taller.. 275/45 R20..

I kept the sheet so I'll send it to you. .
