I got the same problem, but granted I have a tan interior. Pretty much getting white. Once you throw tint on there, you wont be able to notice it nearly as much.

there was a guy on here somewhere who did a RSX rear seat conversion. So let the doors of creativity open wide.

I've got the same problem. But I'm going to have my rear seats reupholstered to match the EP3 seats I'll hopefully be getting. Then I'll get tint.
