i hear you, that was my bad. i didnt mean anything negative, just couldnt see the wheel in the first picture. anyway here is mine, dirty and wet, but none the less...lol.....well that would kinda be an oxymoron.... "ya ya i take great care of my element" and put a picture of it with a spare on lol. no its the wheel its just dark lol
whoa. :???:i don't know if this has been posted already, but i thought it was pretty crazy
are you serious??? the hood is carbon fiber not black, i agree with the color yuk, but in all how is the utility part messed up? i have rims and mods and mine is fully versitile to do anything i want, hell i even put a rack of wood in the back of mine.I personally don't like the fact that as shown the vehicle isn't road-legal (any form of headlamp covers is illegal in all US states, and the front tint-is wider than would be allowed even if the Element had A-line markings, which it doesn't.) is ). I'm not sure that I understand the aesthetic behind making the hood black and the side mirrors body colored. I could see having just the roof black. Is it a refection, or are the side window visors painted?
just for "Gee Whiz" info, the owner has since removed the hood and wheels and all the banners. He put the stock hood and wheels back on and it looks much better, imo. He was nice enough to take pictures for me so I figure I'll help him out here:During my hunt for the perfect 'E' for me, I stumbled upon this little gem. I'm a firm believer in expression...however...this is the equivalent of a supermodel in a burka. It kinda ruins the whole "utility" part of the vehicle.
So what's the census then?
Is there anyone out there that believes this is a perfectly aesthetic adonis of Elements?
If you have pics of anything worse...please post!
I like it back to basics, but those stock rims are not from a 2006 nor is the grill. Must have added some items along the mod path. The rims are from a 2007 and up CRV I think... Look just like the rims on my wife's CRV08.just for "Gee Whiz" info, the owner has since removed the hood and wheels and all the banners.
