I'm in need of a Honda Element, as the best and only vehicle which will meet my needs for transporting my recumbent trike, fit in my garage, and one I can easily get in and out of.
I would just like more modern upgrades and safety features, seat's etc.
Have you guys found a good place locally to replace and upgrade these high mileage SUV's?

Car Toys can do most of the electronic upgrades, but what about new seat's (leather and electric)
plus a local shop for doing engine and drive train replacements?

Thank you for your help.

Your only realistic source for replacement seats is lucking into a wrecked Element at a junk yard. Otherwise aftermarket seats can be a hassle to mount to the Element frames.

Thanks for your reply. I'm sure its only a matter of money and I can get a specialty company to do the work. I've found some cool companies that specialize in complete leather covers, and only need a good company that refirbishes car seats. Same for everything else in the car. Just wanted to hear feedback from anyone who has gone down this customization road locally.

Have to be careful with custom seat covers or upholstery for 2007+ Elements because they have airbags in the front seats.

I've heard that Fleetwood, thank you. These original seats have drawbacks, and I cannot help but wonder if that issue is the same for all modern cars. Question would be then can the original seats be completely refirbished and then recovered?
