Just got this SX! Will post picture tomorrow how it looks under the sun
Looking forward to those photos! I'm tossing up between Astra Blue and Flare Red. I was pleasantly surprised by the Red in the metal on a sunny day, but I do like the Tuscan color interior (which isn't offered for Flare Red)....so I'm really hoping the Astra Blue looks good in person so I can get it with the Tuscan interior. I've seen plenty of photos and videos of the color, but can't really decide until I see it for myself.

Awesome...my dream car! Let us know was your initial look, feel, and handling was.
I knew the car inside out before getting it. I went 4 times to test drive and read a ton on it.
Look 👍
Feel 👍
Handling 👍
I also have a 2021 Odyssey and plan on posting a detailed comparison in the coming days

We didn’t get any sunshine today :( hopefully tomorrow
What about Ceramic? I liked the ceramic a lot too but couldn’t get it from a fairly priced dealer in my area so that helped with the decision

Yeah I had a good look at the Ceramic Silver. Initially I wasn't a fan, and referred to it as Wet Concrete, but after seeing it in the metal I began warming up to it. As I looked at more photos and videos of the Ceramic (to convince my wife that it's an attractive color) I slowly began to feel that it wouldn't really age well as a color, that it can tend to look 'flat', and that the color is more suited to either sports cars or more rugged looking SUVs/pick-ups. Also, I go on and on to my wife about how car dull car colors are these days. Go look at any shopping center parking lot and it's almost like you're in a black & white movie. Majority are white, silver, grey, dark grey and black. A light sprinkle of champagne/light gold, and some red/burgundy..and a rare blue car...but the vast majority are dull greyscale colors. ...so yeah, Ceramic is a not go. ...and that's why it's pretty much down to Red or Blue.

Would love to get your thoughts on the comparison with the '21 Odyssey
