The '03 Keyless Entry System and Bungies are not carrying over to the '04 model year. Are they changing them? Are they standard equipment? Don't know yet. We should know soon. Just hit 1000 miles on my 'E' today. :mrgreen:
One could speculate that they may become standard equipment if that's the case. I do remember back in Feb and Mar 03 that thousands of keyless systems were on backorder from Honda. They probably figured that if all these people were paying the extra money for it the it would make sense to just include it as standard equipment. They can avoid all kinds of shippign and backorder issues by doing this.
As for the bungee - my feeling is that if there's loops in the seats for them - they should be standard. Especially since they're so cheap anyway. Maybe Honda feels this way too.
well i guess if the keyless entry and bugee comes standard on '04, i may come out cheaper in the long run. my keylss as almost 300 extra but i got the arm rst/console thown in for free. or what ever that thing is called. and i as far as the bungee my and Lucy bonded because I made mine, so it will be special not somethig Honda installed for me. lol :roll:
