I drove out to Sacramento and got mine at MSRP. I wasn't willing to pay Oakland 3K over MSRP. Mike Harvey will try to get 4K over MSRP but will sell for MSRP you hang out for a couple of hours and hassled them down. Just check around and it will be possible to get an X at MSRP in a reasonable time frame.
Hopkins Acura in Redwood City currently has 4 MDXs on the lot: 3 Touring with Nav (2 silver and 1 white) and 1 Base with Nav (Black). Apparently there were cancellations. I just put down a deposit for a Havasu Blue Base with Nav, and they still refuse to budge from MSRP. If paying MSRP is still OK with you, call Al Anderson there. He's pretty nice and not very pushy.
BTW, he also told me that the 2003 will have 260 hp and ON STAR, but could not confirm for sure .
To make a correction on my last post, the cars are NOT on the lot, but will be available in early July. Apparently, the people ordering them have cancelled and so Hopkins Acura is trying to let the word out early to find alternate buyers.
