I've been lurking around the forum for a long time, but finally joined last week after inking a sales order for a 2021 Elite. Picked it up yesterday and it was love at first sight 馃槏! Had to wait a week for them toget the one I wanted since the dealer had none on the lot.
She came from the dealer with:
OE Tow Hitch & hitch harness
Die Cast running boards
Black wheel locks
As soon as I got it home installed:
Maxliner all-weather mats
OE rear cargo liner
On order:
Screen protector
OE splash guards
OE Rear Seat Cover

So I'm off to a good start in one day. The forum has been very informative with my purchase. My 2008 Pilot with 165k has served me well, but it was time to get something new and modern. Loved the look of the Passport over another Pilot, and never did use the third row.
Another Stormtrooper to server the Honda Empire! Lol

Good for you Steve, looks great! The second time I鈥檝e heard the white referred to as a stormtrooper. As a Star Wars fan, almost wish I had gone with your color! I just had the black running boards installed. Will be interested to hear if you find yours actually useful or just decorative.

Thank you! The striking contrast between all the black and the pearl white really makes this combo pop.
The running boards makes it easier for my older parents, and younger children to climb up into and out of the vehicle, so they do serve a purpose. This is my 4th SUV and I've had running boards on all of them.
I mostly use them for hand washing the topside of the vehicle, and yes, decorative too.

Welcome. What a beauty. Nice list of goodies too! Good for you.
Welcome. Nice color as well for all those kick butt options already added. That鈥檚 the one I was looking at to when thinking of buying. But couldn鈥檛 ver away from that silver metallic :) Good choice on options moving forward to. Enjoy!.

Nice choice, those storm troopers always make me second guess my MSM decision.

So, 3 months of ownership in the books. 1325 miles. Enough to get to where i feel comfortable in the vehicle, but the lowest mileage in my life. Unlikely to change much since I work from home now, but will soon be commuting once a week to my office I haven't seen in 15 months.
Only 1 visit to the dealer to reconnect the tailgate kick sensor that never worked. They said it was not connected when they installed the hitch.
Otherwise no real issues or complaints. I've learned to live with the Honda non-sensing junk by turning most of it off. Life is simpler that way. Yes I expect the BRAKE warnings on 1 lane rural roads, I just turn the steering a bit and it goes away.
With my low miles the idle stopper rarely goes on for all the reasons I learned on this forum. When it does I just don't press hard on the pedal and it doesn't engage. No need to press the pedal to the floor, doesn't take much to hold the PP in place. And there is a button to disable this thing too. I don't get ppl getting bent out of shape and installing junk to disable this. You already have it. Lol.
I've been really careful not to curb these wheels, so far so good!
PSA: if you have diecast running boards and wear shorts now that summer is here, be careful not to scrape your legs exiting the vehicle on that gritty exterior surface. OUCH!
Added a couple more minor tidbits, black valve stem caps with H emblem, H emblem rubber cup holder inserts, OE cargo security cover, center console divider. Pictures when I get a chance.
Thanks for reading and for all the amazing information on this forum!

Just over 8 months of ownership and just passed 3600 miles. I continue to work from home, the PP guards the driveway.
I did add the low profile hood deflector. Also bought the black tailgate badges, but its too cold right now to put them on. Will wait til spring.

Today is the 1 year anniversary of picking up my PP. Only 4,598 miles on the clock. Its been great, issue free, but very light duty as I've shifted permanently to working from home.

Wow, super low miles! Mine turned 3 yo a few weeks back and I'm sitting at 24k miles (8k/year)...!

I'm starting to think that a hood protector would be an excellent investment. The front edge area of the hood is like a bug magnet.

^That.

Just drove from Vegas to Reno and back this week. We do not have a lot of bugs out in the desert, but I swear I managed to hit all of them during the trip. That front edge of the hood must warp space to collect that many bug corpses. Sheesh.

Today marks 2 years of ownership. 10,390 miles. No issues. Just did state inspection, and idlestopper recall. Other than that not much to report. Just a trouble free vehicle. Yeah I put on the black tailgate emblems, was easier than I expected and adds to the Stormtrooper look.
