My new pride and joy. Adding tint and bsm's pretty soon. Mild wood upgrades (shifter, gauge trim) - Debating on side steps, running boards or nothing????

Very nice! If you are on the East Coast, especially New England, tell us how you keep the grass so green with winter just about upon us.:p

Congratulations snidley26

Your X looks beatiful. The color is fantastic, of course. :D

There are tons of info on the pros, cons, ect on sidesteps vs. boards vs. nothing. Just do the searches. :4:

Snidely - Nice looking SS MDX. Did you get it at Hendrick Acura? Did they treat you right there? I should be getting my 03 SS MDX next week from them. I originally had a MBP/Saddle Touring/Nav/Res reserved but I switched my order to a SS/Quartz Touring/Nav/Res. They have the SS on the lot now and the MBP is due in soon. I have not gotten to see the 03 MDX since I have been in South Korea for four years but I should be back stateside on December 20 though. Maybe I will see you around Charlotte in a few days. I will be in Mooresville for a few weeks.

They weren't bad to deal with at all. Had a good salesman. John Weisenberger. Tell him I (Doug Snider) said hello when you get yours. I really enjoy it so far. I put 1100 miles on it the first 4 days on a trip to WV. Averaged about 21.5mpg on the way up through the mountains at 75mph.

Don't pay sticker or retail for any accesories you decide on. I ended up about 500 under plus 2 year maintenance and some other accessories. Probably could have done a little better but after 40 minutes of haggling over $150.00 we ended up meeting in the middle.

Great X. While test driving the X I found the side steps and running boards to be a pain in the A*%! The X does not sit "TOO" high off the ground. It may look nicer, but I think they are a huge hassle. Just one man's opinion. Your's looks great just the way it is.

Thanks for the comments.....I had a hard time washing the roof without being able to step up. I guess I could use a little step stool.
