I love the color! Congrats on your new purchase!
Just to let you know, several of those pictures are chrome styled. Chrome doesn't have to be a chrome plating on a metal surface. Plastic can look chromed and most of the pictures above are exactly that. Maybe some chrome wheel well trim and door trim will match it well.Both front grille surround & rear strip on E are plastic, not chrome.
They are consistent with Honda's next gen truck/suv, see pic below from new Pilot, Ridgeline & CR-V.
Personally, I like 09 E with front/rear trim better than pre-09 with no front/rear trim. It give 09 E more truck like look.
Yes the Nav will fit most late model E's. (big opening like the 07-09's have) I waited a long time for mine to come in since the aftermaket ones are not as user friendly driving solo. Honda lists each piece & part no's ($3500), and my dealer said they have a kit avail. for about $1k less. Honda charges $1700 on a new one, so if you get the set-up for $2500, that's not too bad. (but with that scratch can buy several dumb hookie aftermaket nav units & a JC Whitney camera!)Gary, the NAV will not be able to be retrofitted... plus it isn't worth spending $1,000+ on an OEM Nav... stick with your GPS. The cooler can be gotten if you were to purchase ALL of the center console parts the way some of us bought the SC console parts.
Yes the front are all metal now (I put a magnet on mine at the test drive to see) and the rear are still plastic, with a shotty paint job. The Black frt & rear qtrs are gone for good along with the rear sunroof, safety issue I'm told; side air-bag / roll-over data took it away.Are the new front fenders all painted metal now?
More likely the sunroof was killed by bean counters who save fewThe Black frt & rear qtrs are gone for good along with the rear sunroof, safety issue I'm told; side air-bag / roll-over data took it away.
