Hi all. I'm looking to buy an E and after quite a bit of searching this site and some additional googling, can someone please confirm the following:
If I want the black or grey panels, I'd have to buy a 2003-05.
If I want the rear factory sunroof, it has to be a 2003-08 AWD model.
If I want an ipod plug, it has to be an EX model.
If I want a 5-speed auto it has to be 2007 or newer.
If I want stability control, it has to be 2007 or newer.
If I want factory heated seats, they were never offered.
If I want a factory external temp display, has to be 2008 or newer EX model.
Obviously I won't be able to get everything I want if the above is correct - thanks in advance for any confirmation/corrections of the above.

Black or gray panels also available in 2006-2008 LX models

External temp I think is 2009 and newer EX models

Other than these 2 the list looks correct.

I think this would make an excellent permanent thread for people in the market for used E's (not just references to the lame Honda website specs).

Wow, great post, this is exactly where I'm at. Looking at options. Like for instance for me the AUX input is deal breaker, unless the Element is a car friendly to aftermarket radios. I bought a new car without any AUX or iPod interface and i suffer everyday the horrors of an FM Tuner.
