Barely Fits

Was too tight in the garage between getting in with the mirrors and opening the door. Fits better outside, however still a tight fit. Have to be careful backing it in.

Very nice Pilot! It looks great in Green!!!
I like how the Havasu Blue changes a bit in the light, but Green? Guess I need to buy a new camera. :21:

Thanks. Will have to give the "autobahn" report after I break it in. Will let you all know how stable it drives at 100mph. Should have it ready to drive to Austria for Labor Day.

Bravo on the tight parking job! Doesn't look like much room between the Pilot and that concrete wall. I've never owned something this big, so I'm a worried about bumping into things. I don't think I would have been brave enough yet to park that close to the wall!

Euro Plates

As promised, here was a picture I did take last night when we both left the dealer. Forgot I had this one. Got the Euro Plate to fit on the rear. New DoD plates are now camoflaged like the locals.

We are getting it all lined up. Know to line the washer with the fence in front and the door lock with the post on the side. Too far to the right and we scrape the tires. Too far to the left and the garage hits the rear quarter panel. Too far back and I crush the tail pipe. It is actually not as bad as it looks, but harder than our small Cherokee was. You should have seen me try to put it in the garage first. No problem getting it in. Just could not get out of the door, nor was their enough height to open up the rear hatch all the way. Moved the Accord back into the garage.

Credit where credit is due

My wife is correcting me. Have to give her credit. She is the mastermind behind parking the Pilot and has even done it without me spotting for her (or vice versa). She says, "No Problem." Now if I can just keep the idiots from parking across the street so I have plenty of room to line it up. Notice that the backup sensor would not work very well in this situation since it would be constantly going off on the sides. :p

Great, just as long as you don't forget about those additional ~5" that the Pilot has over the old Jeep Grannie! Boy, do I wish I had that same problem...

With the Pilot that is! (get your minds out of the gutter!)

42 days and counting...

That's outstanding ... years ago when stationed in Korea we had plates that made us stand out like sore thumbs. Was nice for that sense of being different but now doesn't pass the common sense rule. Good to see proactive force protection measures taking place.

Nice SUV Autobahn. I know what you mean about tight parking. I only have 1" clearance above from my garage door. There will be no cross bars for me.

Havasu Blue was my first color choice and although the dealer showed it in his inventory he unfortunately did not have it in his lot.

We settled for Silver and have been happy with it.

Havasu is a very European color. Good luck with it.
