After waiting nearly the whole summer...I finally got my E today (replaced my 1990 Nissan 240SX)! I've been trying to decide between the Element and the Civic since June but the E won me over. I'm now the proud new owner of a Shoreline Mist Metallic EX 2WD. It was a late high school graduation present but I'm glad it came now. I couldn't be happier with this car...it's the perfect car to take to college. BTW, the stereo in this car is AMAZING...I'm thumpin' all the way down the street!
