2004 Indigo Blue 3.5 RL w/Navi

Ken, I've been reading your posts from days gone by concerning COSTAR's BlueStar. Does their new version of this product, BlueStar 2010, still provide the basis for incorporating it into the RL OnStar? Thanks.

Thank you, thaillest30.

jcurr, you lucky dog. I have done a lot of research on the electronic glitches of my 97, and it sounds like 04 was the perfected car before the full revamp in 05. Also in 04 Honda finally pulled its' head out and put in the great white/blue illumination in, no more vomit-yellow guages. I love the fact that in 2004 there was one package level - fully loaded! So if you walked into a dealer, the only question was "What color?". Enjoy that ride. No offense to the new RL owners, but I will always prefer the straight sedan lines of the 96-04 models.

2004 RL (Nav was standard that year). I forget the name of the color, but it's a cashmere type of color. Interior I think is called Parchment. Has just about 90K and is in dire need of 4 new tires, haha.

This past Thursday picked up the following:

2004 Carbon Gray Pearl W/ Navi
149k miles.

I took a car, a bus, a train, another car to get to it. It only took me 12.5 hours to complete the trip, but after driving this car the last few days, it was well worth it.
