Why so persistent?? I've already purchased the car! I knew what I was getting. I asked a simple question. Not sure why your drilling your point to death. No need.
You're right. It's your dime. What WE think is irrelevant at this point, as you didn't ask for opinions before your purchase. Have a good time doing what you want to do, as I'm sure you'll find it rewarding. And an aside, the Tech and Advance use the same lousy, cheap, non-adjustable shock absorbers (I checked). Acura uses a very sohisticated-sounding name for these lousy socks (adaptive-reactive or something like that) but they surely were the result of a "lowest bidder" purchase plan, based of the lack of sophistication over rough roads. By going Tech instead of Advance you also avoid the controversial Auto Start-Stop system that I'm thinking shortens battery life somewhat (I'm on my SECOND replacement battery in 22k miles).

Too many simply dont read. I totally understand your choice. I was in the same situation. Second row buckets just dont work for me. Large dog takes the whole second row. Adding certain options just makes common sense if you feel you need/want them.
A step drill does make sense. Their cheap at places like Harbor Freight and do a good job. Remember this is a plastic part, so carefully decide how your going to punch the holes.

Lorenzo,

I did extensive research prior to purchase. The opinion (and prior info posted) from yourself and others did factor into my decision as I hit all the MDX'ers (and AcuraZine,..) forums/discussions and read it ALL. As Donn0128 noted, some don't read, but I did exhaustively. I didn't want to disrespect those that have already provided significant information by posting the same questions once again. It was just that you were offering advice after-the-fact (purchase).

Your are right in that Auto Start/Stop was not desirable. As you noted, impact on battery and all ancillary HW (starter, ....) were a concern. I believe AS/S is manufacturer's way of meeting NHTSA standards w/o truly understanding impact.

Donn0128 was right in that the Captains Chairs were also not desirable for my needs (although it was very compelling at first).

I believe I asked a valid question when I asked the first time. You answered it. That should have been it.
