Joined the forums when shopping for my new MDX which turned out to be a huge plus. The information I gained here about pricing, incentives, etc. saved me quite a bit.
My wife and I took delivery of a new 2013 Base MDX on Monday and so far could not be happier. First new car I have purchased in a long time, but with the incentives it was hard to pass up going new over pre-owned.
Grigio / Ebony it's parked in the garage now. Need to take an hour and get the car seats for the little ones installed.
Next on the list are some accessories. Definitely want the running boards, and from looking over the threads on the site. For a family with small kids (my oldest is 2), it seems small kids favor the Advance running boards for ease of getting in and out of the vehicle. Right now I will be putting him in obviously but by the time he is 3-4 I am sure he will be climbing in himself.
I think I will DIY the boards, seems easy enough. Roof rails though seem more complex, not sure I'd want to screw those up.
Does everyone primarily go with the Acura racks? Or has anyone gone with like a nice Thule rack instead? I am assuming regardless I will need the Acura rails and crossbars, but then I could go with a Thule rack which would connect to that.
Aside from these upgrades, I will look into some sort of clear bra and maybe a set of summer wheels although I have plenty of time.
