Welcome to the EOC tulagi. 2006 was the first year for painted panels and the last year for unpainted panels on an EX.
See this thread for more info on the differences betwwen the EX and LX.
Honda's own site also has some good charts with the differences as well.

- Could someone briefly outline the differences between the LX and EX? From what I've gathered, there's not a lot of difference. No drivetrain differences, from what I can tell. It's mostly the colored body panels, stereo, and wheels. Anything else of significance?
