I'm not normally a fan of black wheels, but I like the whole package. I especially like the black mirrors, shark fin, and roof. What did you do to the headlamps? Definitely darker. DIY or was it done by a shop?

I just realized you wrapped the roof and mirrors and handles in black. Looks great!

Many thanks for the comments.

Yes, the car is full wrapped. As for the headlights, they are stockers in my country and me too, I love how they made them with darker accents. Really compliments white CX-5.

Another example of how well black wheels look on CX-5, nicely done.

btw-Are those 22" wheels?

I would have left the white paint glossy on main body, mirrors, door handles otherwise I like it.

I don't really see the point of paying someone to wrap a white car white. Especially when the stock paint was a $200 option. LOL ;-/ Other than that, it looks cool.

the look is quite different from the stock white if you look at it in real life. Matte color gives a more aggressive look.

I still think 22" looks a bit too big, but your overall package looks great.

Thought the roof was tinted glass when I saw the first picture. Then I realized it wasn't in the other pics. Good job. How do the 22's ride?

Thanks for the comment.
22s ride is not that bad. A bit harder than usual but nothing too much to be noticeable except when you hit a large pothole.

I would like to know if the 22" wheels tire package has clearance with the inside wall of the wheel well from lock to lock?

Great looking cars. White with the black wheels make it. I wonder what I can do with my silver CX5 wrt the wheels.

I love it!
I'd make the rims ~18" - otherwise its killer.
How dark a tint is your windshield?
Do you get any hassle for that?

Awesome, except for the steering wheel is on the wrong side.(rofl2)

What would something like that cost???

sthio
07-11-2012, 05:01 AM
my tints are 40% visibility for the windshield and 20% visibility for the sides and rear. It is perfectly legal in my country for such tints.

as for the steering wheel, in Indonesia is right hand side driver. ad how much for what cost?

i paid around 500 bucks. i know its dirt cheap for you guys, but hey labor is cheaper in my country where as, it was running 1500-2000 bucks when i was still in the states for full wrap.

Well done. I agree with all posts. Wish we had interior color, in US!
When do you launch for the moon...or onscreen in Terminator 4???!!! Very unique ride. Is it missing horns or fangs in the front, tho?? Hmm

Not at all, It's a compliment... good imagination is all.
Again, it's unique!

Just saw this thread and joined the forum to ask you which make and model are your wheels? I have a white cx5 gt on order and would like to get similar wheels in 20's or 22's if I can afford it. Are there any scrubbing issues under the guards or mods you had to make to get them to fit? Spacers?

sthio
11-06-2012, 02:37 PM
hey, it's 22" Project Kahn Cosworth, im running 285/35/22 all around. I have slight rubbing in the front if I turn the wheel 10/10. if you just turn it 9.5/10 they are perfectly fine. No spacers though.

WOW.. Just, WOW!!! Love it! This is pretty close to my dream CX-5 as far as appearance is concerned.. Red painted calipers would look amazing!

Great job!

Hi Sthio,

I really like your modification of cx 5.
I am in Australia and will be purchasing a white second hand cx 5 soon.
I don't have much experience with upsizing wheels or any tuning of the cx 5.

Could you please let me know all the modification you did to your car?? (Including badge and series of your car)
I know you did mention wheel size etc but I would greatly appreciate if I can get all the info so I can show it to my local tuning guys to get a quote.

Thank you for your time. And that car REALLY looks great!
I just literally want to copy that and add Matt black emblem to it!

Cheers.
