How To Acquire Non-US Spec Head Restraints for a US-spec CX-5

actually guys, not much difference that I can see, 2016 vs 2017, only thing is I see the 2017 rear wiper sticks up higher than previous, maybe it's just not all the way down....

and what's that loop on the center headrest for ? , last time I saw that was on the CX-9 where the seatbelt for the center passenger came from the ceiling down across the center passenger shoulders.

Will the ones from mazda 3 not fit? My mother's 2010 has the jdm style in US

Apologies for the necropost here, but I'm wondering if there is a source for the JDM versions of the '17 up headrests, or if the older ones are still the best bet. I do notice the stock headrests obscuring vision at the edges. Thanks.

Nothing wrong with necro posting a relevant thread.

I know you can order jdm oem/aftermarker parts through japanparts.com, you will have to email them with the part number and your details to get a quote.

I guess I was curious whether you ordered K072-88-240 02 for your 2016 CX-5 with black stitching but JapanParts.com sent you KD51-88-240 02 with red stitching?

2013~2015:
KD49-88-240 02 - Black Touring Cloth with Red Stitching
KD51-88-240 02 - Black GT Leather with Red Stitching
KD51-88-240 34 - Sand GT Leather with Sand Stitching

2016~?:
K070-88-240 02 - Black Touring Cloth with Black Stitching
K072-88-240 02 - Black GT Leather with Black Stitching
K073-88-240 39 - Parchment GT Leather with Parchment Stitching
I am getting ready to order these for my 2018, was looking to get black leather with red stitching, and I like the low profile of the pre 2017 model. So is it my understanding, the KD51-88-240 02 - Black GT Leather with Red Stitching, should fit the 2018 as well ?

Ok, yes these will fit your 2018 (if you haven't already ordered them). I had actually removed my outboard rear headrests because I rarely have rear passengers. I was on the fence about these but decided to give them a try. Ordered on 11/20, received them today 12/11. Total price $128.47 including shipping for the pair.

I just put them in & I like them so far. Definitely improves the rear view (haven't gone on a test drive yet) & the seats fold nicely without having to fiddle with anything.

Edit: Just drove with these in & I do like the improved rear view.

The folding seats is my main incentive, I rarely have rear passengers either. Thanks
