Ask any Honda dealer who they use for aftermarket leather interiors. It is very common to have the seats sent out to an upholstery company to have leather installed, as well as doing leather on the door panels. You're local Honda dealer, or any dealer for that matter will give you a recommendaton for who they use. You can also look under Automobile Upholstery or Automotive Interiors in your phone book to see who in your area does it. It is much more cost effective to have an upholstery installer do it than it is to buy the factory leather and to have that installed. Using an upholsterer will give you a customer fit for all of the pieces and you shouldn't be able to tell it is not original if you have it done by a professional.hope that helps

i wouldnt buy them from a dealer because you will overpay a lot. either get them from another accord from a junkyard or someone parting out their car, or you can visit one of these sites and get custom leather seats. you can get them in several different styles with many different color and fabric combinations. you can also install them yourself which i help my friend do on his accord. its reall not hard to do, it just takes some time.www.katzkin.comwww.autoleathers.comwww.leathe rseats.comif you want to see my friends seats check this outwww.cardomain.com/id/project_bluegood luck

Depending where you live of course you could try this.Classic Soft Trim is one of the largest after market Leather installers around. They are in most population centers and with a quick net search you should be able to find one close.Otherwise your local dealer will definitely have a connection with someone who can do the job. Ask them who they use but do NOT have them arrange the work as they will add their own markup.Classic charges around $850-$1,000 and they will do all the seats as well as the side panels in the doors. They also are one of the few that is licensed by Honda to work on vehicles with side airbags which is a huge consideration as anyone else may not disconnect and reconnect the system properly and cause some other issues.Make sure that whoever does this work has the proper knowledge to work within the safety parameters of your vehicle.
