Well, the new car is home. It was too dark to take pictures once we made it home, and my wife and I each have school the next 2 nights, so no pics until Thursday. I will say that I am impressed with the ride, how it handles and the options. No complaints about power either, but we only had the chance to drive it home from the dealer, so more detailed impressions later on. Overall, I am happy and more importantly, my wife is happy.

No point at all I suppose... I could delete it if you would like...

On second thought, I think the moderator should make this a sticky. Let it serve as the one thread where all new CX-5 owners can describe their elation.

Wow! Way to be a wet blanket. Joseph was expressing his excitement about receiving his new CX-5 and wanted to share that excitment in a forum of like-minded members. This is the Lounge , right?

I guess so. Never was a lounge lizard. Will hang out in the engine section from now on.

Congrats Steve. In the short time we have had it, we love ours. I hope you enjoy yours just as much.

I am also anxious to see what mods you have cooked up for it.

Completely valid thread in my opinion. With a few more posts Allan, you'll note everyone is welcome to share excitement.

White's the best. Pity I bought black.

The white is really sharp on the CX-5 and black is always a winner. But we replaced a white vehicle with the CX-5 and our other car is black, so we went with the red and are very happy with the decision.

I've got the triple white thing going on...My Scooter (not in this pic), is white too!....In a rut? Maybe...LOL...I do like white though! Wife didn't want another red car, and the Sand interior was her preference...

Looks awesome! This is exactly what our household is going to look like soon... We already have a 2012 white Golf, and going to be picking up the white CX-5 very soon.
