To be honest, the 4 banger would be great, I read great reviews on it. The only thing that prevents me is our HORRIBLE winters here in Montreal and I really like having sh-awd as I currently have on my TL. I can't go back...@ELITE2013 - I've ordered the V6 SH-AWD, was told by the dealer late Nov. Possibly December. As of right now I'm enjoying the i4, TBA, if Acura maybe turbo charged the i4, and opted to give it's customers the option of SH-AWD in the i4 I'd stick with the I4. Either way I'm still enjoying my little rev happy 4-pot!!!
