I really hate asking, or viewing these types of posts.
But I am truly in a bind.
I have never owned an RD and have done my homework and found either --
It's all on the style (or look) you want in your car.
I have found the k65 has better range.
And have found the 8500 is simply the way to go.
I would like for people who have owned both at a certain point and which you found to work best.
I mostly need this for back road usage on the way to school and work, and of course some highway and open road. Recieved a speeding ticket the other day and can NOT afford another.
