Question Help - terrible CLK350 seats

I am still in love with my CLK350 after almost 3 years, but the quality of the seats is terrible. Everything else about the car is amazing.

On top of that, I don't have vented seats and I live in FL so when it gets hot my back sweats. Mercedes seats are among the worst I've seen. I think even Honda has higher quality, more comfortable leather seats.

Any recommendations? Is it possible to upgrade to vented seats or should I just look into trading this one in?

Probably best to post this in the W209 forum, where the CLK folks hang out.

This is the first time I've read a complaint about the CLK seats - and I've been here since 2006! However, I've seen 'beaded' ventilated seat covers for sale that claim to help with that problem in your hot climate.

If I were the OP, I'd pay the money to some custom shop to fit a Honda seat in my Mercedes.
