To be honest with you, it's too hard to tell the difference

it is easy if you spot one from the rear; the larger chrome above the tag. ....or if its blue.

I saw a white '03 in SLC, Utah on Friday. The larger chrome on the rear caught my eye. Still had temporary tags.

Burrard Acura has black and silver 03 Xs in stock already! I heard the next stocks will be midnight blue and slate grey, and if they are coming on schedule, it should be here sometime this or next week. In fact, I am waiting for my midnight blue to arrive too! If I get a call from my dealer, I'll let you know.

We saw the 03X by their parking lot next to SilverCity Richport, so I think it's in already. However, I haven't seen any on the road yet. It's easy to distinguish as the mexx of 03 are different than 02.

Now they're everywhere!

When we were waiting to get ours, we almost NEVER saw MDXs here in the Bay Area. Now that we have our new '03, I see them all the time AND they all seem to be the same color! I like to think that's because they too have good taste! BTW, we are loving it and are only 45 break-in miles away from putting the pedal to the metal!

Still haven't seen an '03 out in the west 'burbs of Chicago (except the one I drove at the dealer), but have been seeing more and more 01/02's. Seems like I pass bunches every time I drive now...I think my wife is tired of hearing "There's one...not the new tailgate, must not be an '03" :D

'03 tailgate chrome?

Hi, can someone please post a pic of the rear of the '03? I have seen many, many '01's and '02's but not sure about telling the difference for the new ones. Thank you very much, trying to stay current here in Denver!

No kidding! I can't even tell the 01's from the 02's.
Is there a differance between them? One year there was mahogany, and another red rock I think.

`03s have different rims, large chrome above tag, and the new blue color.

The body and parts look exactly the same for '01 and '02. I won't able to tell the different, unless those are the unique color for the model year.

I did spot one of '03 while I was driving in MD at speed around 50 mph. With that speed, I could only tell the different from the back.

Difference In 01/02 MDX?

zafer said:

Yes, the 01's generally have less tread on the tires, more dings, and are usually not as clean (not true probably for posters here) as the 02's. :2:

Oh, and the side mirrors are different on the 02's although I have a hard time telling the difference. The thicker windshield is about as easy for me to spot as the change in the mirrors.:8:

My dealer called me saying that my Midnight Blue was released from the factory already! It will be here next week for pickup :5: :2: :2: Couldn't wait!!!

Along with the midnight blue delivery, there should be some slate grey too. If you hold on a few more days, you probably can see both!

NOT always true. For someone who loves to drive MDX, they might hit over 5x, 6xK and replaced the tires already. So if they did, they have more tread on the tires. :2:
