I'm a new member here, and have just ordered a MB EXL-RES. I'm not a real big fan of leather, so before going with the EXL-RES, I considered buying an EX and the parts to make it a real, authentic, factory RES. I found the significant parts to add up to about $1650, but since I don't have a service manual, I can't see what wiring harnesses are different(hopefully only two additional, DVD to head-unit and head-unit to display). I also didn't include headphones.

I ended up doing the EXL-RES after considering the warrantee issue, the rip-apart-the-new-Ody issue, the resale issue(EX-RES won't ever be in a blue book)...

Also note that after the installation, I'd have a Honda AM/FM CD head unit.

Thought other handy people might want to persue this further for either older models or new EX's.

The cheapest and easiest way to go is to get your EXL-RES and then look around for some cloth seat covers. Keep your leather seat covers, and you'll be all set at resale time.
