I like the clean look of the pan heads and stainless.
Yes, but you absolutely must finish tightening with the slots square and parallel, even if it requires a laser level. 馃槀

One of my per peeves is switch and receptacle plates with screw heads that aren't completely vertical.... +/- 1 degree. 馃ぃ

cintocrunch: I like the carbon fiber look also. Don't know if I would spend money on real carbon fiber, but most items with a C-F appearance look pretty good.

I said the same thing until i got into cycling years back. Haven鈥檛 regretted a single purchase.
Completely understandable. When C-F serves a purpose, it's worth the investment. But for a license plate frame... faux is good enough for me. BTW, my mountain bike is aluminum, as are my bars and rims. Cycling is ranked about #7 in my list of hobbies.

We're way off in the weeds here lol
I'd never buy a carbon MTB. I'd crack that with the quickness.
I had a pro tour (think Tour deFrance) level bike at one point.

After almost 2 months since I agreed the price, finally picked up my Elite Blk/Blk today.

Really enjoying it thus far. Still need to spend some time in the menus and settings but I was able to easily link the phone while sitting outside the dealer and use Android Auto for the way home. Sound system sounds great. Drives and shifts smoothly. Very quiet vs our older Odyssey!

FAVORITE part? all the radar cruise/LKAS etc. I turned it all on for the highway ride home and was amazed at how you have all these little car icons alongside your Pilot icon on the dash, and the cars are the real actual vehicles being spotted by the system so you see what is in the lanes beside you as well as ahead of you, and the one you are tracking speed on is highlighted in green. It's like a fighter jet!

As earlier predicted, I don't like the HUD so just turned it off. Just too distracting and unnecessary for my taste.

Look at that engine bay! Lots of room to work in there for DIYers. A little hard to see in the picture, but on the left side you are looking down at the wheel well so lots of open space around the timing belt covers etc.

Unfortunately we just had snow here last night so I'm sure the new Pilot just got a nice road chemicals bath....oh well.....

Looking forward to driving it more!
