I'm getting ready to buy a Pilot EXL. My dealer says that they take Pilot EXs w/o leather and add leather after-the-fact via an aftermarket vendor. He says the leather is actually nicer than the factory leather. Assuming that the quality, warrenty and price are all unchanged, is there any reason why I shoul not do this? HAve any of you heard of this before?

Thanks

I wonder what effect this might have on the side impact airbags, which deploy from the side of the seats and the associated warranty. Has the dealer mentioned this at all?

If the warranty is the same, this might be a good way to avoid the saggy leather seat bottom syndrome.

Yeah, the only thing to worry about is the functionnig of the side air bag and seat sensors.

There have been other owners who have added after market leather. I even remember someone getting an EX-L Navi (or RES?) who replaced the leather with a different style.
