  3. Leather wrap Si driver's seat, in Phoenix

    Interior mods
    So I was considering something to do to my car. 2012 Si coupe TW. I think I'd like having to get my driver's side only wrapped in leather by a good leather shop. Anybody have any thoughts on doing this only to the driver's seat? I know it might sound funny but a lot of ppl in AZ hate leather so...
  4. Drivers seat leather issues

    Interior Problems
    I bought an EXL coupe (2012), and after about a couple of days the leather on the driver's side started to flake in area (mainly where I would rub it as I got in and out). So I brought it back to the dealer, and they put a new leather cover on the driver's seat (or so they said they did). I...
  5. Cleaning leather seats

    Detailing, Wash & Wax
    There are 2 cleaners they're selling me. Both bottles say the same thing. One looks like water and the other one looks like a white cream. Which one would you use to clean leather and not leave it shiny and mess it up?
  6. Color Swap Interior?

    Interior mods
    I have an LX sedan and hate how light the interior color is. I would much prefer a black interior but to my knowledge the Si is the only one that gets that. I have nerve damage issues that won't allow me drive a stick for anyone who suggests "why didn't get just get an Si" :D I considered...

  9. Is it leather?

    Interior mods
    I bought a 2012 Civic with the optional leather interior. I was thinking that everthing "soft" in the interior was covered in leather. I have come to notice that there are places that seem like they might be vinyl. The center section of the rear seat has a different feel that the sides. The top...

  11. SI Leather Interior

    Interior mods
    Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone has had leather put in their SI. I can't believe that its not an option from the factory. I was thinking about doing black leather with red stitching and the red SI logo, just like it is now. Just wondering if anyone has attempted this and has pictures...

    I originally went to the dealership to test drive a 09 SI after testing the car out on the road I didn't like the feel of the constant manual shifting at 52 years old thats not me I will leave that up to the young kids. They also wanted to much for this car that had scratches everywhere and...
  14. Random babbling: 2012 Si Interior comfort? Katzkin Leather?

    New Member Introductions
    I wrote a lot and if you'd rather skip to my questions scroll to the bottom (sorry). In the next 2-3 years I'm probably going to be in the market for a new car (depending on what direction my career goes). I've owned an assortment of compact cars and compact pickups and I'd like the next car to...

  18. Leather or Cloth?

    Interior mods
    I'm going to be getting a '12 EX or EX-L coupe myself (actually just decided on coupe over sedan) and was wondering what the opinions were for cloth vs leather, especially in the civic. For myself, living in TX, I'm afraid the leather would heat up in the summer. Also, does leather age worse...
