Just got finished visiting www.honda.co.jp and it looks like the Japanese are to going to aggresively market the E over there. They are building "Element Towers" where E's are stacked up like in a store front along with live DJs suppling music. From what i could see in the pictures, it looks like the real difference between ours and theirs is that they look to have a Satellite navigation system. Also, it looks like they won't have the stereo auxillary inputs or the color Eternal Blue Pearl. The name I guess is going to be "Element Go Open". Interesting stuff.
