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).
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.
Gave her a wash! Also picked up a set of RX8 wheels! Gonna get them powder coated gunmetal!!
Zooms - Wanna see a pic of wheels on the CX-5 once installed.
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
Audible reverse sensors INSTALLED!
CX-5 sport doesn't get the backup camera.

Today i sat with the engine off for 2 and a half hours on the M6 motorway and used the rear door as a view blocker while i pissed in to a screen-wash bottle..... awesome...
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.
