I have a 2007 Honda Element. I believe the color is called "Galaxy Gray". I recently picked up my "Titanium" 2008 Goldwing. Wow, do those colors look the same ! Do you think the Honda car division would use a Goldwing color and rename the color ?

There are a billion different paint formulas.

Looks like they are different. The Goldwing has paint codeis NH456M, and your Element paint code is NH701M.

Every time I see a Honda Element I can't help but picture two Honda marketing people sitting around arguing that Honda is so popular in America, that they could make a refrigerator box and sell it to us and we'd buy it and then making a bet on it.

One went down the road the other day and they had gracefully had the rear end lettered like a dealer lettering that read "Screw Aerodynamics". Busted me up.

Honda was right. We will buy ANYTHING if it has the right name on it.
