I bet it is possible, but will cost you time, money and effort, which I'm not sure is worth on a brand new car. Chances are that not a decent dealer will get it right (OEM level). If you have the extra dough, save the time and effort...Here's a question. Could you have upgraded your Touring to an Elite? Also, is it possible to upgrade an LX to say an EX? Are the radios/electronics/seats swappable?
I won't worry about negative posts... b/c I wouldn't have done it unless it made sense. It didn't take a lot of extra money to do it. We leased the first and financed this one so that was another motivating factor. I decided I wanted to commit to keep the TE for 5 years.Hey, if you like it and you have the money to do it, there is no craziness about it. And don't worry, a large percentage of the negative posts will be due to envy
It wasn't a lack of research but rather a lack of supply. I bought my first one at the beginning of November right after the Ody came out. There were no TEs anywhere close to me... talking 500 miles away. So, I worked the best deal I could on a Touring about 120 miles from me.Ok I have to ask... Why didn't you get the elite the first time around?
I'm sure I could have added the lights and some more speakers, but I really wanted the blind spot detection system since my son's seat blocks my view. Yes, using mirrors properly placed can help with that... but I drive about 20K miles a year and have a 1 year old in the car who is usually screaming b/c he hates the car so I wanted that feature to make my life easier. Plus, I can't imagine it would have been very cost effective.Here's a question. Could you have upgraded your Touring to an Elite? Also, is it possible to upgrade an LX to say an EX?

The silver is a little flashy but there wasn't any other inventory really available.Do you like the silver better than the grey? I found the silver too flashy for my eyes.
How many miles did you have when you traded vans? Any accessories?
I live in So Cal too.. but the first one was leased... so you pay your tax with each payment. I didn't pay any extra tax.I live in Socal too and the hit on the sales tax alone would've been close to $4000. So I gotta ask, what was that one feature on the Elite that made it worth it for you?
