    Just to be clear, I don't believe I was ripped off. The point I was trying to make is that I know many will avoid the dealerships for service, especially on a 15 year old car, citing high prices and...

    You can always call them. I ordered mine online, and if memory serves me correctlly there was a place to enter the VIN. And yes, when you return your old unit, they refund you the $100 core fee.

    For me, the '03 seats just feel more comfortable than the '07. The '07 seats are a little too firm for me. The 07 certainly has several improvements and a few more bells and whistles, but also...
