    I am WAY beyond doing marathons, I not sure I could even walk that far any more. I used to run an occasional 10K and smoked a pack of cigs per day if that counts. They recently had a REV 3 in my town and my wife and I were volunteers. I was impressed.

    You are only a couple of months away. I am originally from the Mpls area so I know all about MN winters.

    Had 30% tint put on the front windows and it comes pretty close to matching the privacy glass. The owner of the shop said the factory privacy glass was 28%, before he saw the car he guessed it was 18% based on other SUV's. Anyway it looks good and the price was only $95 for their premium film (FormulaOne for what that is worth).

    John: Interesting; I got an estimate for the same thing yesterday. My guy said the rear was 20%, but he was just guessing. Did your guy take an actual measurement? Do you find the 30% in the front to be OK at night? And finally, do you know if they took the inner door panels off to do the job? Thanks.

    Paris, I was not in back when they did it but he acted like he tested it because he was surprised that it was so much lighter than expected. I trust him because he is a friend of mine who does detailing for most the car dealers in my town. Also he has been doing this since 1991. I have not driven it at night so I have no idea. I just went with his recommendation. They did not take off the door panels but they did push the squeegee in way in. I think the 30% will be fine and it matches the factory so nice.

    Wiped the interior (do that pretty much every other day) and also wiped the rear-view camera.. much better view when backing up!
    First car: 1999 Nissan Altima, new - never had an issue, great car.. traded for an SUV
    2003 Toyota Highlander, new - another great vehicle.. unfortunately totaled
    2001 Lexus RX300, used - good car but old.. donated
    2009 Mercedes ML350, used - very nice but expensive to maintain and fuel up
    2013 Mazda CX-5, new - Stormy blue, Touring+Tech, heated leather dealer install. Love the fuel economy and handling.

    I cleaned a 4 year old's vomit from the upholstery. Definitely no smiley face... I'd even bought car seat protectors and had gone for the dealers upholstery protection (they 'threw it in for £50' by the end of the deal-making). Still, as good as new now and the littl'un will be on the roof from now on

    Not today but on the weekend I took the CX5 in for its 15,000 mile servicing.
    2 other CX5s in the bay, one blue, and the other black like mine. The blue is a really nice color up close.
    Car is verrry smooth after the servicing, she musta really needed it.
