Red=YUCK!

But I do have to say that personally I like the back "doors" vs the tailgate on my E....sometimes that tailgate gets in my way, and leaving it up causes problems because I am too short!

That thing is so "pimp," and I don't mean that in a good way! Doesn't it sort of invert the true Element concept of capability over style for its own sake? This must have been done back when Honda still thought Generation Xers were going to buy the Element, and not the 44 year olds like me.

Trust me it doesnt appeal to generation X-ers either. But even you 40 year olds must remember the pimp from "Baretta." This would be his car for sure.

I think the true Element concept is versatility - it has the ability to be many things to many people.

So with that being said, this version of the Element is really important to pimps.

For the record, I like it and my Ho's do too. :lol:

Peace out...

Exactly what I thought. It is pretty sweet. I like the rear seats.

Emass, that ride is for you!

Pimpin aint easy, but with the studio E, it aint too hard either...

I think the true esscense of the Element is not about how "pimped-up" or "flashy" we can make it look - but how much fun we can have in a REAL outdoors truck.

I am also an GenX-er and I have to go with the majority here, that thing is pretty hideous! I didn't really find one change throughout the entire concept car that i liked at all. eww... i am soo glad my E! doesn't look anything like that!
you pimps need some new ho's if they are tellin' you that thing is fly.
yuck!
ah, but to each his own, i suppose!

It looks pretty pimp, not my style though. That E doesn't look like it would last a minute on a camping trip in the mountains, or on a trip through rough terrain. I don't like the rear doors either, the clamshell is way better. Anyway theres my two cents....
