After a series of unfortounate events my 93 Civic died... after many days of mourning and uncertainty I jumped right into a brand new E!!! It's not only my first new car but its my first E. My E was the 73rd E off the production line and its GREAT! If anyone E owners live in chicago and are in or want to start up a E club here im in. I jsut wanted to thank everyone who has built this site so that I can hit the ground running with my E!

We have several members in this E club in your area. You don't need to start an E club, you just have to get your local chapter moving!

Welcome!

Good luck with your new E!

Sticker

What color sticker should I get? The chrome or white? Whats more classy?

Also, does anybody have a good recomendation for a slightly shorter or bendable antenna? Mine is about an inch to long and it hits my garage door when I pull in :-( so I pulled it off for now in hopes to find something suitable. Thanks!

yeah it's AT, its nice and smooth through the gears and it senses when you are driving uphill and will hold off on shifting to power up the hill its great!

I also really like the feature that compensates for road noise on the freeway and turnns up the radio, then turns it down when you slow down.

I often thought Honda should put that in all there radio's. They have had it for years on the Goldwing! I love that feature on my wing.

Congrats on your new E!! As for your antenna, check out South Coast Accessories, (www.southcoastaccessories.com), they are one of the sponsors to the forum.

Was curious how the dealers were about negotiating price? Were they pretty uptight or fairly workable? If that's too nosy of a question, I apologize. :)

So with the Nav unit, there's no bluetooth integration with cell phones, right (so you can do hands-free calling)?

Welcome to the boards, AKAttack1! Glad to hear you're luvin your new 09 E. :)

I have had stubby antennas on my E for a few months now. The current one I have is only 1.5" which I bought from Black Forest Industries. The stubby I had before that was 2.5" and that was bought from Enigma.

Here are a few pictures of the 1.5" stubby and the 2.5" stubby.

2.5" stubby:

1.5" stubby:

You can get them from a few other places. www.stubbyantenna.com Have several different models and sizes. And as Chefjames already mentioned, one of our site's sponsors South Coast Accessories also sells a model.

Congrads and excellent color choice- looks like you are the 1st one to purchase an '09 here!

I, like Jojo, saw your pic on your main page, but PLEASE post more when you get the chance.

Now let the mods begin . . .

Welcome to the EOC. Take a look at our Billet antenna line. We have 3 styles, and the new adjustable one might do the trick for you. It will adjust from 4" to 11" and you have a choice of silver or black. :cool:
Congratulation's on the first 09 E on the EOC. :D
