    I do a bit of road driving so a bigger speedo is my reasoning and the tablet i-pad holder is because I use it as a GPS and rear view mirror. Every normal mirror vibrate to much

    Me Being a tech, here's my list:

    Air filter is so much easier to remove, no more fighting 1 Allen screw for an hour to find out the filter isnt really dirty.

    Oil fill/check much easier to get to. Fill is under air cleaner cover and dipstick doesnt have a stupid rubber flap over it.

    Clutch overheat light. Atleast I can know what's going on back there. I'm wondering if I can monitor clutch temperature with MCS?

    I overall have a food feeling about this thing, cant wait to get our hands on them. I'll be digging through the parts fiche as soon as they become available

    Has anyone else seen the pictures of 1 of these with a large black front bumper? It covers the headlights, sort of like the LE bumper.

    Yeah there is one and there’s an idiot light for when it gets too hot.

    L_____H

    It shows LO till warm, I think it has 5 “Bars” mines never higher than 2 Bars, remember the Clutch is oil cooled, the oil is “water cooled” with engine coolant. The engine coolant has a gauge and an idiot light.

    Honda has stated its standard with the unit..so any dealer trying to get additional funds out of it will be brave as hell.

    Not me! Not the first year models and I only have 1,700 trail/yard miles on mine. Honda is headed in the right direction, I hope they come out with the suspension and frame these have got on a P1-5 platform, kinda like XXXXXXX has done. We have three dogs and when the wife goes we need the bed.

    I only started the complaint thread because it was way easier for me to write down the 2 things I didn't liken opposed to writing the 3 page list of everything I Love!

    Haha!

    Seriously, I could list a million things here.

    Dimensions are right where I wanted.
    Can fit huge tires
    Seats looks awesome
    Good bed space
    Good cup holders
    Good looking doors
    T bar and hand holds on door
    Body design is nice
    Air filter location and design

    I could go on and on.

    I am still hoping for a base model that is less expensive. No i4wd (same diffs/control as the pioneer), crappy wheels/tires, loose the fancy painted plastic, loose the dynamic braking and hill assist, loose the roof, maybe all black seats and interior. And drop $2k. Fingers crossed. ;-)

    It's not a Corvette yet! Maybe a Subaru Out Back, HA! I like the X for the woods anyway, with the P1-5 plat form, you could drive more aggressively with no passengers or fire wood?

    Elon musk made a car that is faster than a corvette and it has plenty of backseat legroom... And a trunk! Lol.
