If 2015 Honda CR-V doesn't have a new CVT but offers 6-speed auto, and Xenon or LED headlights are available as an option, I may not be here as a owner of our first Mazda. The outstanding quality and reliability on our '98 Honda CR-V simply just impressed me too much, not to mention still clear and maintenance-free plastic headlight lenses! I miss lighter gray interior color for silver exterior, memory seat, rear AC vents, power liftgate, and a better 328-watt 7-speaker audio system with directional tweeters and subwoofer available on CR-V but not on CX-5!

Did you order the eyelids painted or did you paint them yourself?How well did they fit and can you post a picture of them on your car?
I'd apply Ventureshield Ultra or similar right over that. It will hide it, and protect.
Thanks for the pics.If the dealer wont replace mine [still under warranty] Ill be getting those.I may get them anyway if they have to take the front end all apart to replace them.
I've only had my CX5 since April, but my LED headlights are already looking pretty crappy. Not only is water and dust getting inside, there appears to be mold or some other crud forming on the clear plastic adjacent to the turn signals. There are also water/dust stains running along the bottom of the lights. When you pop the hood to look at the lights, it appears the center screw on the back of the top of the housing isn't going in all the way into the female threaded part (as if the female bore isn't deep enough). There is about a 1/16" or 3/32" gap where the pieces don't mate flush. This is true for both headlights. All other screws seem to go in fine and there is no gap like in the middle. I haven't had a chance to go back to the dealer to check out the lights on some other GTs w/Tech currently in-stock to see if this is just a one-off, or a more common problem. I love both the look and visibility of the LEDs, but thoroughly unimpressed with the headlamps so far due to this matter.
As an aside, my girlfriend's 2015 CR-V, purchased just a month before mine, has crystal clear headlight housings.... they appear brand new. Both vehicles have had the same washing treatment and schedule too.
#2 is unlikely, mainly because I live out in the sticks, and my 3 dogs go ape-$hit when anyone enters my property. My neighbors (some of whom are elderly and home all day long) would surely have noticed the commotion and let me know of anything unusual while I am away at work. Plus I leave the car locked at all times anyway... mainly because I keep an expensive pair of sunglasses in there just about 24/7.
Some of these headlight assemblies have a dust plug in the back for some reason or another. I had an 06 Corolla that was in an accident (deer), and the front headlight assembly had to be replaced. After a month or so I noticed the inside of the headlight getting dirty. Here the person installing the headlight knocked the rear dust plug (maybe some kind of service plug?) off and the inside was exposed to dirt. Maybe there's something like this in the back that's missing. Or maybe the assembly has a crack in it somewhere.
