Just wanted to say HI. I will be buying my first new car soon. It will be a 03 Element EX 2wd 5-spd in green. :mrgreen: If in any way I can help, I am a Honda parts counterman with over a decade of experience. I am older than the "target" age group like most of you. I also own a 89 Prelude SI 5-spd and a 90 CRX SI. What other Honda/Acura cars have you owned in the past. Which one do you wish you could have back. When the Elements come out in a few months with side air bags will you still be able to get them without them? I look forward to seeing this site grow. I haven't checked yet but are there going to be Element Owners Group decals.
