    2018 List of things you must do to make this car perfect - advice needed

    I have spent all morning in this forum because we got 7" of snow last night. I love how this CX5 drives in it but alas the other people are not as fortunate and will most certainly hit me before I get to see what the sunshine will make this crystal look like in the spring. - I digress.
    first thank you for the site, there is lots of stuff/info here. where is the list of must have mods?

    There isn't one. There really aren't any for that car. Is there something specific you want to do?

    For me, making it perfect was putting a hitch on it so I could carry my bike. Perfect is different for everyone! If I was routinely driving in lots of snow and ice, snow tires would be high on my list.

    Weatherproof mats of some type.
    Clear wrap if you care enough.

    These are the things I did almost immediately after purchasing. These are my go-to ďmodsĒ on every vehicle pretty much

    -All weather floor mats
    -Rubber trunk liner
    -Trunk cargo net
    -Replaced all interior lights with LEDs (also license plate lights)
    - Installed Pro-clip for phone mount (which I have sense taken out of my car)
    -Tinted windows, including 70% on windshield
    - Installed sport pedals/dead pedal
    - did the wireless charging mod, but itís pointless now that I installed the apple CarPlay harness

    Canadian MAZDA all weather mats, $39 visors from e-bay, l.e.d. bulbs inside for sure. Better tires when the time comes or a new set of rims so your CX5 doesn't look like their CX5.

    Does anyone have a part number for the led interior bulbs? And are they just plug and play? Thanks.

    I did all weather mats, cargo liner, if you have small kids I put on seatback protectors so they donít wreck the seat kicking it.

    I wouldn't consider any of that except the LEDs to be mods.
    You don't need a part number. Don't get the shitty Amazon ones. https://www.superbrightleds.com/?gcl...kaAjXHEALw_wcB
    Go there. I recommend the "warm" temperature LEDs.
    Yes PNP.

    Maybe. Our awesome site sponsor Corksport hasn't made thing one for Gen 2 yet:
    https://corksport.com/cx5/
    O wait... they made exhaust hangers:

    Floor mats and cargo mats and roof rails aren't mods.
