Hello Gang of Adventurers. My dealer called today to tell me my Element has finally arrived. I shall go tomorrow to test drive it and complete the paperwork. Allowing a day (or two) for "Dealer Prep" I should be driving it home in two days. I think I have decided to purchase it without any add-on accessories, and just buy them online and install them myself. Since I am paying full MSRP for the vehicle, I refuse to pay any dealer markup on accessories. I am also very reluctant to pay union wages for any of the accessory installations I can do myself. I am not in the target age group (chronologically) but still feel this will be a perfect second car for my wife and me. We already own a Honda Odyssey, and this Element is replacing my Jeep Wrangler I sold last week.
