The only thing is if you decide to mod it beyond a basic tune then you will run into issues with the tranny slipping.
Good point. I currently have a tuned DSG GTI, and that can get a bit boring, although it's the best auto/manual setups I have ever used. The RDX, on the other hand, is just a gear changing slushbox for long trips with the family.
As far as pricing goes, it is based off of "invoice" pricing, but on BMWCONFIG, it is appearing $800 lower. I still need to discuss with at least 2 more dealers.
