Difference between Touring and Standard??

What are the differences between the Touring edition and the standard edition. A little confused about this? Thanks in advance.

Touring has the following extras:

Roof rack
Remote Entry
Memory seats and outside mirrors
Rain sensing wipers
8 way power driver seat with lumbar support
Heated front seats
Bose sound system with 6 disc in dash CD changer

If comparing '01 MDX Touring vs. '01 Base (Premium) models, then the list above is incorrect since Base '01 MDX does have remote entry and heated front seats, and neither Touring nor Base MDXs in '01 had rain sensing wipers.

The accurate list of differences (and my comments) is as follows:

- Michelin tires - not a big deal, Goodyears can be upgraded when they wear out.
- Different style wheels - I prefer the look of the '01 base model wheels, '01 touring wheels look too much like those on older Jeep Grand Cherokees.
- 8-way power pass seat - useless to me, you set it once and forget it.
- Remote linked seat memory - nice feature which should have been standard, but not absolutely essential.
- Passenger mirror down-link in reverse - same as remote linked seat memory.
- In-dash 6 disk CD changer - nice feature, but mostly listen to MP3 player or radio in the car, my CDs are stored in a CD juke box at home.
- Bose system upgrade - not a significant enough difference to justify additional expense.
- Roof Rack - factory roof rack is useless for my purposes, installed Yakima rack to gain flexibility and to support my existing Yakima attachments.

Here are couple links to previous discussions relevant to this topic:

Sorry about not searching. I was confused because my 01 came with alot of extra stuff but lacked things like Power passanger seat, 6 disk changer, and I guess memory seats? Came with the roof rack, spoiler, wheels and everything else so I was curious.
