So when I was shopping for the Pilot I had a very difficult time finding even decent pictures of the vehicle other than the same 5-6 stock photos plastered everywhere. So I decided to take some (fairly) exhaustive pics of the vehicle. I tried to get a few exterior angles but I really wanted to show the interior and other areas. I am sure I missed a few areas and if need be I would be happy to get those for anybody who would like them.
Anyway, just bought this Pilot for my wife a tad over 2 weeks ago (9/23) and it went almost directly to the detailer for a full application of System X Diamond (an 8+ year coating for new vehicles) on all paint/plastics (body molding, engine bay, wheel wells, etc...)/wheels/glass/headlights and taillights. Pretty happy with the application. I鈥檝e found a few little mistakes, but nothing that鈥檚 really worth taking it back and having corrected. Since this is a brand new paint job and I opted for the dealer NOT to wash it before delivery it had almost no initial swirls/halos/love marks on it. So it only needed a 1 step paint correction. I debadged the rear but left the front badge on the grill. It was going to be a pain to remove and my wife kind of likes it. 馃檮 The Pilot got its first car wash yesterday and it was simply a quick contamination wash. Unfortunately I did not get an opportunity after the wash yesterday to get pics. So all of the pics are taken after a full day of driving yesterday and there is a very fine coat of dust on the car. Still looks nice though
I tried to get a multitude of pics of the different menus on the dash screen for those interested. I鈥檝e provided links to 2 galleries and a video showing the coating.

OH MAN! I love the clean look on the back with all the badging removed as I didn't understand why they made a black edition but still used Chrome lettering on the back... wished they would have used black atleast... I may have to remove mine as its 2020.

Were the tinted rear lights OEM or did you do it separately? Either way it looks really nice. Those lights make me jealous lol. I sorta want to get my taillights tinted on my Pilot now. I'm not a fan of getting completely smoked lights on a car, but just slightly tinted look soo nice:love:.

Sorry man, but the lights are not tinted at all.
