    That looks good. How difficult was it to install?

    I've only got OE accessories on my Dad's CX-5. The accessories currently on it are the rear bumper guard, the stainless non-illuminated sill plates, the alloy dead pedal, all weather mats, rear cargo tray, and remote start. Eventually I'm going to add the alloy brake and accelerator pedals, the Android Auto update, auto dimming mirror, and splash guards.

    It's not going to get roof racks as I like the clean look and I don't want to encourage my dad to throw stuff on the roof, he's not exactly the most careful person lol. No tow hitch either, both my outback and my F150 have hitch receivers so no need.

    Thank you! Not difficult at all to be honest. Kit utilizes factory mounting points/bolts and 3M tape for the most part. Sides were riveted for durability

    Did you have to remove any of the factory pieces or do the new ones just attach to the existing ones?

    It's lowered on Eibachs for now already.

    Had the front windows done with Llumar CTX25 to match the factory tint. Also had him do Llumar Air80 on the windshield for heat and uv protection. Then I had Xpel ppf installed on the entire hood, front fenders, Mazda emblem on the grill, headlights, front bumper, door cups, and finally the exterior piano black pillars. Added some factory mud flaps. Going to leave the front plate off, I'm going to try some touch-up paint on stainless screws but would like to find something more flush fitting for the two holes where the plate was. Wrestling with the idea of removing the roof rails, some days they look ok and the next I want 'em gone. I'll never carry anything on top, I have a Suburban for big items. The dealer gave me a pair of blanking inserts if I want to yank the rails so it's just a matter of deciding.

    Looking good! Our '14 came with front side tinted windows when we bought it in 2016. I wish I knew what brand it is but it has performed great. My wife loves having tinted windows now.

    Did you get the paint corrected to remove "dealer-installed swirls" before PPF went on?

    Mantra 7, I think you can find colour-matched plastic plugs online. Sometimes the dealer's Service Desk can order the part for you (Honda sells OEM painted bumper plugs, for example), but a quick search on eBay didn't yield anything.

    Yeah, the guy that did the work is something of a perfectionist. His client base is almost entirely German brands and Tesla. The cars before and after mine were a big AMG Mercedes and a Tesla S. Complete wraps and ceramic application on both to the tune of $9K and $6.1K respectively. Despite being in business for many years, this was the first CX-5 he had ever done. I asked him before hand if he wanted me to go over the car with clay before dropping it off and he asked me not to, said he likes to do ALL the prep work himself. Car has 215 miles on it, so yeah, anything wrong with the paint was a dealer installed "option".

    The ppf guy said the same thing, he's seen white pearl plugs before, they were on either an Audi or BMW, I can't remember which. Just have to keep looking.
