Hello,
Just introducing myself, I just got this car last Sunday.
Its a 2004 EX 4WD MT

These are the pictures from the listing and what it looked like when I got it.
it came with roof racks, side steps, cargo cover, storage armrest, and a rear cargo mat.













Mods and planned mods:
-I ditched the roof racks and am in process of painting the roof cladding NHBP (sold here!)
-The storage armrest will replaced by the SC console next week (watch for it in the FS thread soon)
-I may ditch the cargo cover too because it kinda gets in the way and I never have it open. ( ditto possibly on the FS thread)
-Installed Draw Tite hitch from etrailer.com
-Installed 2nd dash 12v outlet and extended the aux cable into the shelf to the left of the center stack so I can reach my iPod.
-Installed Homelink reciever
-ordered NHBP accessory spoiler
-ordered all season mats, skylight screen and realtime 4WD decal.
-eventually want SC wheels, maybe slightly lower stiffer susp., less body roll

Thats about it for now.

It looks like you got yourself a very nice E.

Been curious about that screen for the sunroof. The install guide says to cut the headliner to install. If you wouldn't mind, post some pics of the install.

I didnt take pics of the install, you dont have to cut though, you just have to poke 6 holes to put the screws through that have the snaps.
I just poked the holes with the awl on my swiss army knife. They were barely visible. If I ever removed it you would probably see the marks/holes because pushing the screws through would have made the awl holes bigger.

Its not as tight of a fit as i would have hoped for but you can get it situated so that its tight enough to keep most bugs out once parked at your camping spot.
