Super excited to have found and joined this forum. I haven't been a 'car guy' since I owned a 1995 Eclipse GSX (DSMTuners, what up?) back in college. Definitely haven't needed a car since I moved to NYC almost 15 years ago.

But Gal and Baby Incognito are ready to pack it up and move back to the west coast, so we needed a new vehicle for the long trek, and a few years of LA traffic.

Proud to have picked up a 2020 Touring AWD from an NJ dealership today. Now I will be totally unproductive at work for the next few days while I figure out whether crossbars and a rail can easily be installed at home.

1) XPL Mylar on entire front end and inside door handles
2) 18" Black Rhino Wheels
3) Continental TerrainContact A/T Tires
4) Wheelskins Leather EuroPurf Steering Wheel Cover,
5) Weather Teach Floorliners
6) 3M Carbon Fiber Wrap on all Dash/Interior Gloss Black parts
7) Honda CD Player
8) Front & Rear Focal Speakers
9) Honda Splash Guards
10) Honda Rear Bumper Applique
11) Honda Die Cast Running Boards
12) Honda Door Sill Protection Film

14) Toyota Venza Cargo Net (from a previous vehicle)
15) Lock Box w/Cable (in rear cubby)
16) Comfy Sheepskin Inserts (front only)

Thanks! Taking a look at your list to see if there's anything I missed. Already purchased the following from College Hills:

  1. All Season Floor Mats
  2. 2nd Row Seat Cover
  3. Rear Seat Back Protectors 40/60 Split
  4. Rear Side Lining Protectors
  5. Crossbars
  6. H-Mark Black Valve Stem Caps
Trying to decide which running boards: 08L33-TGS-100D vs 08L33-TGS-100F.

Destination: Los Angeles!

I’m curious about all these upgrades/additions. They all sound very practical and enhance the overall appeal of this stellar vehicle. I’ve never seen the tires your sporting. The stock conti’s are expensive but offer overall good performance. What about yours? Could you enlighten me?
oh , and sheepskin inserts? I’m uncertain if the Honda CD player will work in my Elite dash. Advice? Thanks.

Several others here have bought the same Cont. A/T Tires and ALL have been extremely happy with them, they were rated number one in a Tire Rack test as well, here is the link: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Continental&tireModel=TerrainContact+A/T&partnum=66TR8TCAT&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes

I have photos of them over in the Tire & Wheel Forum, but they are quiet, are rated much longer tire life 680 vs 480 (OEM tires), cost less, prevent Curb Rash, and provide better traction on and off road and in ice & snow.

sheepskin inserts?
I put these in my brand new BMW 330 and seven years later, took them off (as they were pretty well worn) and threw them away! But what was under them were BRAND NEW looking (leather) seats, which I totally enjoyed for another 3 or 4 years and when I sold the sold, the seats still looked great and I got top dollar for it, so the $120 investment was more than worth it! Also I love the look of them MORE than covering the entire seats with sheepskins. So I put them on my Passport, very early on, my only complaint is that they are Universal (sized) and do not fully cover the entire seating area (maybe could be a couple of inches wider) so if this is an issue, you could try to find something that will make them custom for you (at a higher price, I'm sure)..

I’m uncertain if the Honda CD player will work in my Elite dash. Advice? Thanks.
I just addressed this in another thread, so I'll direct you there, to check out and discuss further if you like...



Happy Holidays!
