    Michelin Pilot Sport SUV, Anyone try them?

    Did you keep the same tire size/width? One option for me is to get the above package with 235/70/16, once these tires are closer to worn out. Then when it comes time to sell the vehicle, I could sell the vehicle with the original wheels/tires, and sell the upgraded wheels/tires separately to...

    Michelin Pilot Sport SUV, Anyone try them?

    If you're set on buying new tires, you could also consider lightweight 17" or 18" wheels, if performance, ride and noise are a priority, as mentioned. I think that would make a more noticeable improvement in overall performance vs only changing the tire. Obviously, that is an additional cost. My...

    Disppointments/missing things in your CX-5?

    Just resistors on the rear, with a different red LED bulb, since I couldn't find a red LED 7440 with built in resistors. Up front has to be amber. I used the referenced bulbs on the front which are plug and play, no modifications/adapters required. Both are brighter and easier to see than the...

    Disppointments/missing things in your CX-5?

    I also have resistors in the back, only because I prefer red led signals for the rear. The Endpage bulbs have them built in and are plug and play, no dash lights or hyperflash. I would have just returned them if they didn't work.

    Michelin Pilot Sport SUV, Anyone try them?

    I've always had a good experience with Michelin tires, but the other question is, is it worth ~$900 to replace nearly new tires.

    I find the concept of a "lunch break" for the market amusing/interesting.

    Disppointments/missing things in your CX-5?

    Yes, you can use the same bulbs in the rear. I have a different set of red LED bulbs for the rear. It's extremely easy to replace the front and rear turn signals. The front is self explanatory and takes about 2 minutes, the rear is also very easy (~5 minutes to do both) and there are are videos...

    I used these. Built in load resistors and aluminum heat sink, so they are plug and play.

    LED turn signals are something I added in the first month or two. I think it looks better including in the rear housing where there is a noticeable difference. Definitely brighter and easier to see. In both housings, the LED appears clear compared to the standard dark yellow bulb. (Before/After)

    Recent CX-5 purchase. Are there interior/exterior protection packages worth getting?

    Save your money. I do recommend getting the OEM rubber all weather mats and cargo mat, they're thick, grippy, washable, and durable. Some on here also like the Husky or Weathertechs. Husky would be my second choice if the OEM were not up to standard. Amazon had a better price than my local...

    I saw that a while back. Interesting article here: https://seekingalpha.com/article/4355437-urban-one-anatomy-of-stock-bubble One thing's for sure, between WKHS and TSLA, EVs are hot. Mazda's MX-30 with a 100 mile range doesn't even come close to cutting it. Their future EV offerings must be...

    If you want to see something nutty, look at the run WKHS has had. It's a casino. Where's a working crystal ball when you need it?

    I decided to try trading it. I am all in cash (not nearly enough) right now but I still think it is reasonably priced. I do believe in the company's long term survival. (100 years so far) $5,000+ in it is probably too much, though. I have noticed that the stock is less liquid on days with lower...
