Nice! I'm getting my EX-L delivered soon so the dealership is allowing me to pick my accessories in the meantime. The dealer hasn't shown me what I believe is an actual accessories list (it seems to be the ones for the 2015 CR-V - he said it was 'all the same anyway'). I'm trying to get an actual list from him, but I have a few questions if you don't mind. I really like the interior lighting. Does it make it harder to see the road at night (any glare)? Can you disable it on the fly? How much did you pay extra, and did you order this when you purchased?

Good call on nitrogen but I heard from some guys it can be a big inconvenience since if you happen to be low on nitrogen you can only fill up on nitrogen, topping up with regular air is not an option (apparently). I guess for those that commute a lot in the city/suburbs where getting to a dealer is easy this wont be a problem.

Unless you are on a racetrack, the consistent expansion that pure nitrogen provides isn't a big deal. Regular air is mostly nitrogen anyway. Costco also uses pure nitrogen but it's never been an issue to top off with regular air. The benefits to normal drivers is minimal. You will still have to check your tire pressure and top off, just not as often as with regular air.

Looks great. The black color makes it look a bit higher end. What brand were you with before you switched to Honda? Any issues?

And btw, you got a great price.

Hey guys, first let me apologize, it was 27K OTD with everything, not 25K!

First let me say the interior lighting is an awesome choice. The pictures do not do it justice. There is no glare whatsoever, but you cannot turn it off. It cost me around 800$ with labor.

Is the 'Lifetime Powertrain' a dealer warranty, or something Honda sells that the dealer threw in?
That was a dealership deal that they placed on all new civic and accord 2016s

Please tell more of what is involved in this always on interior lighting. Am certainly familiar with courtesy lighting like in footwells and doors that fades away but what's the deal with this fairly pricey upgrade?

Some people just like how much brighter they can get their lighting to be, easier to see at night and all. But for some, it's overkill

I remain curious as to what is done for $800

My dealer lists console and interior illumination as around $650 combined - both can be seen on honda's build your own page. I really only like the interior illumination, which just lights the foot wells - not sure if that is for the passengers as well. Either way, I think I'll just do it myself - found an easy to install package by LEDGlow that does the same thing and is about $40 just so it lights up when the dome lights are on, and they have DIY videos on youtube. I'm not sure if you could do the console illumination itself - that looks like you need some specific OEM parts so the lights show through.

That's an amazing deal!! Congrats!
I have an EX and only got 19700 OTD with interior/exterior sealant. Sounds like there was a lot more negotiating room than I thought:p
