I was wondering if anyone with an '04 had purchased the "Sport Package" and if so what you paid (If you dont mind me asking).

My dealer called and wants to know what accessories we want installed. Since the package is not on the Honda web site and only in the brochure, I want to have a rough idea of what others paid before I bring up the Sport Package.

The Sport Package puts Fog Lights, Running Boards and Crossbars for the roof rack all in one package for (I guess) a discount. These items separately cost (MSRP) about 1110, so I was wondering what you paid for the package. Im thinking if they discount it a couple of hundred it would be worth it.

I know I can save a bit buy the accessories online and installing them myself, which I would do with the running boards and roof rails, but I would not do the fog lights myself and since winter is upon us and I don't have a garage, it would be nice to be able to drive away from the dealer with these things already installed.

TIA!

Honda Doesn't Offer A Sport Package

Honda's lineup for the PILOT is straight forward... You have the following:

1: PILOT LX
2: PILOT EX
3: PILOT EX-L Res (Rear Entertainment System)
4: PILOT EX-L Nav (Navigation System)

The "Sport Package" you're talking about is probably something the dealership is offering, which explains why you can't find anything about it on the Honda website.

If you have already negotiated a good price on the Pilot, accessories is where the dealer is going to try and make additional profit. Get the lowest price on line and ask the dealer to match indicating you can install the accessories yourself. After haggling back and forth, just have them do the fog lights and you install the rest yourself. Crossbars and running boards are very easy to install. I would estimate that the dealer would want $2000 for everything and knock off $200 discount. IMO, that is not a good deal knowing what you can pay online and installing yourself.

wwong has the best idea. The items in the sport package cost about $890 (from HondaAcruaWorld). The cross bars and running boards are definitely "do it yourself", so unless you are getting a major price discount on the package, paying installation for them is not worth it.

Kemosabe, is your Passport wired or batteries? If wired, have you hard wired it? I currently have an Escort (older), and would like to do something with the dangling wire.

LChisum: My Passport used to be hardwired when it was "installed" in my Mustang (I sold the Pony Car and did not remove the hardwiring). My Passport is old, circa 1986 or so, and does not have the option to be powered by batteries. In the Pilot, I just use the accessory outlet via the coiled cable as you can see from this photo:

Thanks Kemosabe. I prefer a visor mount, and I know there must be some clever way to wire it into the lights by the mirror, but I'm too squeamish at this point to start digging into the car.
