    Favorite tire dressing for those who like dressing.

    I wish I had a good answer but my cars are not driven daily on a repeated basis. With every other dressing, I freshen pet it up every detail, especially if in rain. With the DG, that is simply not needed. I imagine I freshen it every 3-4th wash.

    Favorite tire dressing for those who like dressing.

    Duragloss all the way for high gloss. A derailed friend recommended it to me and I have been very impressed.

    XPEL Ultimate clear paint wrap?

    I removed a half kit on an Infiniti years ago. Absolutely no visible difference in the paint.

    XPEL Ultimate clear paint wrap?

    I have full coverage on all of my cars including the two Mazdas (2016 MX5 and 2017 CX5). I swear by the stuff. In addition to protection everything, I feel it makes removing bugs easier. About 10 years ago I used the bikini cut or partial coverage kits and never liked the line that always...

    Seatback protectors

    I have that cover and am VERY happy with it. I wish it covered the carpeted wheel humps, but other than that it is great.

    2017 CX-5 Aftermarket Cross Bars (and a bit of a Thule AeroBlade review)

    Are you guys with cross bars leaving them installed when not in use? On the OEM cross bars it is somewhat time consuming to remove them due to the low fastener location. I am wondering if there is any benefit to removing them when not in use...mileage maybe?

    Average MPG - 1st 1k miles on '17 CX-5 FWD Touring

    I have an AWD but was getting 26-28 average around town. This weekend, I drove 300 miles each way with the apative cruise set on 80. However, I had the cross bars on and two road bikes on the roof. Whoa. I was struggling to get 23 mpg. Car hit 3k miles on the way back.

    2017 Cargo liner for dogs

    I am also a huge fan of canvas back. If you look on the site, the flap is a universal piece and is available. Edit: I looked and I suppose they are under the models becaus of the width. Still, they are not really model specific beyond that. If you shoot them an email, they can supply a flap...

    2017 CX-5: Scratches on Piano Black Exterior Pillars

    Mine seemed to come with some light scratches from the factory. If it bugs me enough, I may take some gloss black vinyl to them.

    What have you done to your CX-5 today?

    Check out xpel.com as I think they have an "all about paint protection film" summary. The film is thin. the way that it was wrapped, you cant really tell that the car has anything on it at all. The film has gotten better and better over time. The dealer did me a "favor" and had my Infiniti...

    2017 Infotainment Jammed

    2017 GT AWD, 1,500 miles I am putting this here in case anyone has the same issue. Leaving the other morning I put the vehicle in reverse and the camera image was jammed. Just a picture. I put it into drive and "Navigation Loading" came on and stayed on with the spinning indicator. Audio...

    What have you done to your CX-5 today?

    Clear bra installed. Suntek's newest stuff. I have paint protection on all of my cars and must say, this latest film is the best looking. The entire front was done along with the front section of the roof. Pictures don't show much, but here she is. Derek at Atlanta Protective Films...

    What's the furthest trip your CX5 has been on?

    On a side note, sorry about the passing of your grandfather. I lost mine last week. Enjoy these folks while you have then. Back on it....longest trip...300 miles one way. No issues. I have done the same trip in the Miata and it felt like 30,000 miles!

    CX5 owners, let's see your other vehicles

    Your son works for cirrus? Hmm...putting that in the back of my memory! I have an SR-22. Great piece of engineering minus my slightly curling instrument panel plastics.
