I believe the user's manual says not to do that.

Blow the wiring, but you could do a little sponge mop.
Just about everything is water repellent.

Does the Element use special materials?

1973 Lotus Elan S4 Sprint DHC 5 Speed, MiniLite magnesium wheels
33 years and more than 40,000 miles later, everything is fine
Obviously, it's not my daily driver
1991 Bedlington Terrier is optional

Now that's friggin nice. I'm not a fan of sports cars, but I can definitely get on board with this. It probably wouldn't fit my 6'2" 200 lb frame, but still, I like it (it's like admiring a size 8 shoe when you're a size 11).

I also ride this thing when I am working on my car between races Scooter Burnout its an 05 Vento Zip R3i Scooter with a 70cc Malossi kit, Fender Eliminator, I rewired the turn indicators so they are tucked up and hidden, Malossi Kevlar Belt, Polini Speed Clutch, Polini Evolution Clutch bell, Technigas Next R pipe, Malossi Carbon Fiber Reed Valves, Areche 19mm Carb, and a couple other little mods. Top speed in excess of 65mph (speedo stops at 50mph but it goes well beyond that).

Nothing too space age. They initially targeted the 20 -30 crowd that wanted to haul around snowboards, bikes, etc.

That's an awesome choice (looks very similar to my old car). Make sure you get some conforti performance stuff for it. An M3 sway bar also fits and helps significantly. If you do get it, check out e46fanatics.com forums for some great ideas. Man, I miss my old baby. PS. I have a set of stock 18" wheels and tires if you want them later.

I just turned in my Yukon XL last week Currently, this is my daily driver for the next 90 day rotation (mine is black with full leather, etc.) - not a status thing for sure, but free gas and insurance make it worth it.
