Here in central Florida they are talking about mid to late November....
Can't figure out why Honda waits so long in the new model year to bring out the 06 Element....it is the last 06 model for Honda to bring out....
They did the same thing last year.....seen the 06's on the honda webpage but have not found any invoice prices....how about you?
KBB...Edmunds....doesn't have the invoice price posted yet....
Can't wait to see them.....I was one of those guys that thought I would never own one....in fact I didn't really notice them at the dealership....been there many times with my Pilot....finally took a look at one and now have a different feeling towards them now...especially with the EX-P coming out....
Will have to wait aand see....

The Element has been released in November since the beginning.
In a perfect world, dealers would like to have a new product (or redesigned product) every month. It keeps the buzz going and attracts showroom traffic. So they stagger the launch dates of the vehicles they sell.

I'm a bit disappointed with the colour range so far. Someone mentioned that they were 'plain'. Have to agree with you there. Looking forward to seeing one up close, in person, to get a better feel for the new EX-P's especially.

I think the Tangerine is the only really good looking color on the EX-P.
My favorite colors of all on the Element are the Rallye Red (not available on EX-P) and Atomic Blue. The Atomic Blue is actually better looking on the EX than the EX-P.
Actually, besides the cool Tangerine color, the EX-P isn't as appealing to me as I thought it would be. I think I still prefer the regular EX. I'm not too crazy about the new EX wheels, either.

Still my favorite. I think it made the best of the non-painted panels.

The Green looks para-military also. Isn't that what Paul B. got?
Speaking of whom, he did another hit-and-run. Bought it, announced it, then disappeared. Second time!

Actually, I think the military connotation may be one of the things that killed the color.
Also, it wasn't "flashy". People like new cars to have some bling. Even when cleaned up, the color didn't seem like a glossy, new car sort of color. It was more of a pea green.
#4098 of 4724 Light Olive Drab

I used to have models as a kid, and we used to call it Olive Drab. A camo color, basically. Maybe that's why I like it.
Hey, we agree about something. Let's not let that happen again.

Nah, more of a moss green.
There, now we're at odds again. fwew!
#4100 of 4724 Definitely more of an olive drab....

That was close.
