Was it the dealer who quoted you the $1000, or are you just guessing that that is what it would cost to retrofit your Touring? Reason I'm asking is because factory-equipped features usually are most cost-effective. Retrofitting (especially sensitive electronic devices) figures to be labor-intensive which shoots up the cost. If the dealer really was speaking factually (which I must admit I doubt) then it may be worth investigating further. However I suspect whoever told you it was possible was talking out of their you-know-what. I have to figure just the parts alone for the i-Activsense would be well over $1000, then add in the labor costs (again assuming such alterations could be done and a dealer would want to do them). If you want the GT features, you just may be better off speaking to the dealer again about trading yours in and moving up to a GT. Might actually cost you less money than a retrofit. I learned this myself a number of years ago when I bought a new Honda Pilot LX, when I really wanted the EX. Thought I was saving a few $$$$$. Instead I spent the next 3 years trying to make my LX into an EX.
