elefante 2.0

So back in June '13 I introduced elefante to you all; a 20082 EX, AT with aftermarket roof rack, side steps, tint and bike rack 49k miles and meticulously maintained by dealer by original owner.



I then proceeded to mod it, dip it and make it a custom dog/bike/kayak/ikea stuff hauler and enjoy many awesome experiences with it.



I then proceeded to remove the dip and this is what I found underneath!




In all seriousness I sold my E on CL for a pretty penny and then by sheer luck I found this one for sale, spoke to the seller (originally purchased from the dealer with all paperwork and records) and convinced him to sell it to me for LESS than what I sold mine for.

In summary, elefante is now a 2010 LX with 17k less miles than before, immaculate condition inside and out and ready to continue having many more adventures in the days to come!

I give you elefante 2.0

Congrats, you'll love it. The only thing that frustrates me about the car is its "Tantanium" interior!

Welcome back

Nice new Element you got their. Almost hate to see you dip over that color, but I'm sure it will look amazing. Nice to already have all your accessories and home made mods to just drop in. I think you should add a huge moon roof to it. I really actually miss mine. See you around my friend.

Being that it's not my first E, I already loved it.
I actually really prefer the change in color of interior as scratches and wear seem to blend in more than on solid black interior panels. big bonus for my needs.

thanks. I like the color and will keep it as is for now. But no doubt I will dip it sometime down the line. for now I plan to dip the hub caps...thought about getting wheels for it but the tires are at 50%+ their thread life and I've been getting 26mpg and I like to believe small wheels have something to do with it.
As for moon roof, I'd totally consider it but I'm also playing with the idea of a DIY roof top tent down the line.
All in all I am very happy with it, especially since I bought it for less than I sold my 08 for!
Keep in touch buddy.

Now that's a deal! I can't wait to see where this one goes. Curious about that roof top tent, too!

If anyone could figure out a DIY rooftop tent it would be you! Congrats on the swap which seems to have turned out very well.

Already started adding some stuff.

Avs window vents
Splash guards
Rotating blind spot mirrors
Console 12v fridge/heater

All worked great on my recent camping trip.
