Did you get the RLX?

I found a CPO 18 RLX Sport Hybrid that was priced too good to pass up Dec/19. Purchased on Friday and ended up hitting a pothole on Monday that took out the front passenger tire (no rim damage, fine hairline crack where rim touches the tire within the rim guard area). I was very lucky I added the spare tire kit at time of purchase. It was around $425 to order a new tire (3 days to get in) and add road hazard warranty for the other tires with Discount Tires. Not 100% sure if the non-repairable flat was caused by the type of low profile OEM tires, OEM rims, or some combo of both.

Would be interested to see if folks had less pothole caused flats when changed out the OEM tires (want to change to Conti DWS 06 down the road).

That sounds like Acura dealership prices? My 06 TSX A/C clutch did the same and Acura wanted +$2000 to fix (about the same when my P/S rack went out a year earlier). I found an A/C compressor on eBay and local shop to repair my A/C for $750. I paid $550 total compared to $2500 dealership prices to replace my P/S rack with local shop and I purchased the rack+oil myself on Amazon.
