Seat covers try Costco they have some front seat cover within a budget. Keyless Entry try crutchfield.com if you are handy if not try your local Bestbuy stores.

i think someone on www.ephatch.com installed the lighter into the hole to the right of the shifter. all you need is to buy the cigarette lighter/ashtray kit.
honda japan www.honda.com/jp has a center console with armrest for the CTR, it is about $120 if you can get someone to pick it up. i am investigating whether it will work with the floor consoles in the US civic si, as we are the only ones that get cupholders.

Honda Japan is www.honda.co.jp. The armrest that I know about is actually for the rear seat.
In order to install the power outlet to the right of the shifter you must splice into the wiring for the lower outlet since the wiring harness is different than the UK and Japan CTR. I decided I did not want to cut and splice so I am living with just the one power outlet. No one at EP has added the extra outlet yet TTBOMK.

Thanks for the info on the seat covers. I will look there. BTW do they make seat covers for the rear seating as well? I don't know if the 96 Civic actually has a key less entry already installed and perhaps I just didn't receive the remote. Does anyone out there know if the 96 Civic LX comes with the key less remote system already installed?

Costco's Crosscountry (waterproof) front seat cover is less than $19.00 for a pair, I don't think they make any for rear seats.
Typical Civic LX doesn't come with Keyless entry, Keyless entry is standrad on EX.

Thanks, I'll look at Costco and let you know what I find. The car is in really good mechanical condition but lacked care on the interior. I have to use the key to lock the doors. Purchased the car for my son and had the mechanics do a thorough going over before/after purchase. Seems very sound but needs a major detailing and perhaps interior seat covers etc.
#45 of 513 security vs keyless entry

I just purchased a 2003 Civic EX with side air bags and no other options. The dealer offered me the "security" system for $500. Hahaha! I have the keyless entry, but what is the security system? Should I even think about a aftermarket alarm, like the Viper? Thanks.

You could get the security system module from http://www.handaaccessories.com/ for $120 and install it yourself. Pretty straightforward.

I saw the site, but I still don't understand the advantage of having one, the other or both. I would like to hear the justification of $120+. Is it just a noisemaker? If so I'll skip it.

I love the keyless entry. Very convenient. Thought it was a gew-gaw, until it came on a car I bought and I started using it.
