    Hi.
    The car is an 8th Generation EX Tourer Accord, this may be a stupid question it has leather seats. Are they all leather or are some parts vinyl? which other parts of the interior are leather?

    It's a good question.
    I can't give you a definitive answer. I hope someone else can.

    @Smokingman
    I'm not sure if its fully leather, but I have queried this before and was informed they are normally a mixture of leather and vinyl for longer lasting as leather needs to be be looked after a bit more than vinyl. Also for production purposes, its also cheap to have a mix.

    @Smokingman thanks for letting us know.
    Something new I learnt, strange how the middle of the seat looks different to the sides.
