Hey all

Well I've got the dealer, I've got the price, I've got the model... now I just need to pick the color! eek!

I'm going for a 2010 Element EX 4WD. My trade is a 2007 VW GTI- which was a fun car, but it can't haul all the crap I need to haul. I'm a scuba instructor and active cyclist so I need space for all my crapola.

Color Choices:



I probably like silver and blue the best... I've always gone for darker color cars but damn if the silver doesn't look good. Black just because it looks sweet, but it'll get super dirty I'm sure.

Thoughts? Gotta decide soon!

I'll post pics tomorrow when she comes home!

Happy E-Eve today!

I like both the Silver and the Black.
I bought one "in between those" two, on the Polished Metal Metallic

I love it!

Happy E-Eve today!
Congrats!

I think I'm cutting black from the list. Its actually two different dealers with the same price so which I get dictates which dealer I visit.... one has great reviews online and the other has so-so, sadly the great reviews is also 90 mins away vs 15 mins away.

Sadly there aren't tons of E's in the DC area, and these two dealers have the best price and value for the $.

Why is there not an emoticon for 'going in circles'?

Off to the races... I'll post pics! (And I guess as a side bar, my new car looks like it's first drive with me will be in the snow!)

welcome to the club we are full of valuable information. please use the faq/ how to's in the top left corner as well as useing the search to the right. but for the color the only way to go is the cargo kaki,just tell them if they want to sell a unit it needs to be that color and only that color.

Plus, if you are a Dr. Who fan, you might call it the "Tardis". Mine is not blue, but I call it the Tardis. I even have made a Dalek Rant ringtone for my phone. Sorry to hijack your theread.:lol:

I think I'm going to get custom plates (they're cheap in VA) that say:

AG ELMNT

If you need help figuring out what that stands for, look at a Periodic Table :grin:

Most Reliable!!!!

I've owned almost 50 cars in my lifetime....13 have been Honda's since 1974. It's unbelievable, but my SC is the only silver car I've ever owned! I really like the ASM! So.....congratulations on an awesome automobile in a great color! Also, I believe a read in some automotive publication recently that silver cars are always more reliable than any other color!! Yes...I'm quite positive I read that.....I think.

Thanks guys! Well today I hit the road for the goodies required for a new car.

Among the purchases were some new heavy duty floor mats made by GoodYear that I purchased for the car (I read about them on here, wow they are beefy). As an active cyclist and scuba diver I'll track my fair share of crap into this car.

Also working on making my custom bike mount for the back. Inspired by the fine folks of EOC forums! Will post pics...

I am pretty sure I saw that same thing about silver cars being the best. The car I learned to drive on was a silver Volvo wagon.

So are there EOC camping trips sponsored regularly? Because I suddenly have this itch to go camping!
