    ALSO IN THE DRIVEWAY:

    1986 Audi Coupe GT 5MT (the Project Car) | 2001 Saab 9-3 SE Convertible 5MT (the Summer Car) | 2015 Acura MDX Advance (the Mrs.' Car)

    GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN MAZDAS:

    That is my guess...

    Good news however, Mazda decided to pick up the tab.

    Only had my 2018 CX-9 GT for a month and half but first order of business was a MaxLiner cargo liner.

    Picked it over the Weathertech due to price and flexibility. (Itís flexible enough to allow the third row to come up and not crack or break)

    Fits well and does the job at a great price ($80 on amazon).

    Installed driving lights behind the grill of my 2018 GT. Involved completely removing the front bumper, making a bracket and completing the wiring. End result is completley steath and they make quite a difference to night driving.

    I'll post a how to guide shortly.

    $80 is a great price. Did you get the liner and install it yet? Is it as you expected? I was considering MaxLiner due to price but don't know anyone who's got one to speak for fitment and quality.

    Itís installed and fits great! Has a nice ďgripĒ to the surface as well to stop things from sliding too bad.

    For the price, i think itís excellent!

    Nice work! Install is very clean. Looking forward to your bumper removal how-to, as I'd like to upgrade the my car's horns at some point in the future.

    With the Apple CarPlay update installed in my 2018, I was annoyed there wasn't a clean place to leave my iPhone when plugged in. Ended up buying the ProClip mount and really like it. Blends in nicely and keeps the phone in place and in view.

    Did you do a Dealer installation? If you don't mind how much was it installed ?

    Iím assuming you mean the CarPlay update as the ProClip was do it yourself.

    I just bought the CX 9 a month and a half ago and negotiated the Apple CarPlay update in the deal. So, I either got a good deal or screwed depending how they worked the numbers on me.
