Hola amigos! ?
I’ve been looking for a bull bar.. the small upside down U ones for the front .. I live in nyc and park on the street SADLY.
but although eBay and most dealers say there bars will fit .. when u check the specs they don’t make any that fit a 2003 Ex element .. :(
Has anyone ordered one that will guarantee fit? Thanks!

Thanks love but I have a 2003 ex .. a lot of people don’t make it for that year .. and that bumper seems pretty low if a truck tried to back up its bumper would eat my grill :/

If somebody backed in to your bull bar, you'd just get even MORE damage because they're only cosmetic. If you want a PUSH bar, you'll need to custom build a complete sub frame to mount it on.

I agree that bull bars won't provide the best front-end protection. They are great if you want to add auxilliary lights on your rig.

YOU will be sorry if you install one. 1. no structural support for one in any Element. 2. radiator will need repair if not replaced from bull bar damage. 3. waste of money.

Seriously? Park so that no can back in to it. The front end of a Honda (ANY Honda) is a giant marshmallow. The only way you're going to protect the radiator is to not bang stuff in to it.
Haaaa!!! That’s impossible when u live in NYC! Street parking is a beeetch
