^ had an '05 GT. Now '11 3.6R. '05 way more sporty, loved the car. But with two growing kids the '05 was getting tight plus the annoying issues of a 8 year old car. '11 R has much more room, comfort, materials are better and feels more solid. The look has grown on me. Would I change some things, sure. But it was the best choice out there for a semi-luxury, large, dependable, AWD sedan that won't break the bank.
Congrats on the '13. I'd love to swap headlamps with yah....
