    Just joined the club to share my good news and meet up with like minded owners and of course, learn to make the most of this great Honda.
    My motor is a rare RHD Element 4WD just imported from Japan with service history and believed one previous Japanese owner.
    It has the standard 2.4 i-VTEC petrol engine and 4 speed auto in stunning Sunset Orange paint. Drives like a dream.
    Hope to hear from as many other Element owners past and present and others with any advice ?

    Hello! The element is one of those Hondas I really wish they had sold here in the UK. Such a great car and I love the door setup.
    Back in 08, a privateer ran an element in the American Drift championship for a couple of years...

    Thanks for the welcome ! Always thought Honda ruled since my first Honda motorbike and that first drive in a Honda S800. Am away in my motorhome for a few days doing some watersports so will get in touch next week to update my Photos and see about a meet with Ichiban.

    It looks a bit quirky but I like it. Is the 4WD automatic or do you have to engage it?

    Hi again, To answer steve4536..... Yes, the 4WD is an automatic affair. It's normally FWD then when the fluid controlled diff senses the front wheel losing traction it directs some drive to the rears.
    I live in Huddersfield just next to junction 23 of the M62 and would be happy to see any of you guys (with some notice of course !)
    Also would like to hear any advice about servicing and any tips about oils etc.
    Cheers :Grin:
