    Does anyone know the extent of leather used on seats in EX models? On my car the upper part of side bolsters, seat sides & headrests do not look like leather.

    Even the backs of front seats, I ask as no point in applying leather conditioner to plastic?

    All genuine leather in mine. Treated the front seats with Supaguard leather cream (not got round to doing the back seat yet) and it really brings them up nice and restores that lovely leather smell in the car.

    A good comparison is to have a sit in some VAG rubbish on their pleather seats (they like you to think it's real - hence why the call it "Leatherette" but really it's plastic that's why I prefer the term pleather to describe it) and that really shows the quality of the leather in EX Accord.
