New "Piloteer"

Hello Everyone!!!

My name is James, just bought a new 2012 Pilot EX-L /Navi 4x4 today.

I traded in my CR-V. Loved that car, but wanted something with a little more meat, and I love this car.

I live out in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Got a 4x4 because my wife has family in the high country of Northern New York, and needed something to get up there during the winters.

So I have already visited a few accessory websites, but I will look for some on here. Any suggestions on "must have" accessories I am more than willing to hear.

My must-have items were: WeatherTech mats rubber (for winter/mud) for all three rows, ordered from WeatherTech directly, and a cargo area organizer (Rola


) for the back.

Also. The CR-V I got a really nice, sturdy cargo liner/mat for the back. I have seen a few vendors:

Benardi Parts
College Hills Honda

They carry one but I have heard that its doesn't seem very sturdy (plastic like), and doesn't keep a grip on things you put in the back.

Anyone have the same experience, and/or alternatives?

Also any other better vendors that you know to order from?
