Here are the before and after shots

Should I leave clear side markers or black them out, too?
This looks really sharp. I also have the CBP and after putting on the Type R black grill, this will be the next thing I do. I think the smoked side markers would looks great as well!

Where did you get center console? It's nice
Thanks man, @Shinjari is correct they are the OEM leather version. I got them from HondaPartsNetwork.com. See the part's below:

Center console piece: 83441-TBA-A01ZA ($110.47) http://hondapartsnetwork.com/part/9708660/Honda-Part-83441-TBA-A01ZA-Armrest-Assembly-NH900L

Left console piece: 83416-TBA-A11ZA ($43.91) http://hondapartsnetwork.com/part/9...-Left-Console-NH900L-Armrest-Assembly-Leather

Right console piece: 83411-TBA-A11ZA ($43.91) http://hondapartsnetwork.com/part/9...Right-Console-NH900L-Armrest-Assembly-Leather

Big thanks to the other users I have seen do this. Really feels like a different car coupled with the EX-L shift knob.

The left and right pieces actually just pop right out with a little force so those take like a min each tops. The center piece you need to take the trim piece off on the back of the console (where the rear air vents would have went) and take out one screw on the left which holds the armrest in place. You can't miss it, it is the one screw closer to the top holding the rod in place - this is the piece that helps you pivot the center console up and down. I think I saw someone else claim there are 2 screws holding it in place, this may be true for the hatch or coupe, but not for the sedan as I have seen myself.

Thanks, I asked because I tried ordering the side pieces from Honda parts network and they're on backorder. Honda unlimited also, so not sure where to turn. So far I've ordered the door pieces and I got the leather wrap for center console from redline, just need the two side trims of the center console

Dang thats wild, must have lucked out I guess lol. Yup I've seen the redline wrap, looks premium for sure. Can't wait to get the steering wheel replaced

These are the reasons I bought a touring model. I don't have to order or replace anything to have leather.

I agree but I personally like the physical look of projectors versus LEDs and the sound system just didn't do it for me. Rain sensing wipers are not necessary either. I also really enjoy my friends Katzkin leather in his Accord vs the Civic leather so the EX-T was right for me at that point and hopefully I can swap the leather soon (Katzkin I felt was definitely more comfortable).

Removed my front plate today. Used a set of clips from Napa but the same touch up paint. Roughed up the surface with some 150 grit paper, 4 coats of WOP touch up paint until it was smooth, then 1 coat of the top/clear coat. Also had to modify my clips, but after doing so they press fit right in, pretty flush and look good. Dont expect them to fall out.
