CX-5 2.2D Sport
Thanks! They are german, Dezent TD Dark satin black. 17"x8 ET38 and 45, fitted with Hankook Winter I'cept EVO 235/65 front and 255/60 rear. The set of tires are actually made for AWD SUV's with staggered width (BMW etc.) Very satisfied with looks and performance.
 
I just got a new CX-5 in red and was looking to do some small mods, window tint, roof rack, maybe CX-5 decals on side (anyone know where to get?), rain guards, etc.

It's a lease so I don't wanna do anything crazy. Ideas? Best place to order?

Congratulations! Ebay, Aliexpress, japanparts.com, global.rakuten.com, autostyle-usa.com are a few places that could work. Browse, browse browse...

Nice!
You should post a diy. From where did you purchase the material and how did you apply it?

So, finally got them Topline fender flares painted and fitted. Had to mount 25mm spacers due to only 255 wide winter tires. Now flush as wanted.

Those flares. So sick. Musta cost a pretty penny. Nice work overall!

Hi, I want to do the same.
How to do it in the most safe way not to hurt any paint?
I have used lighter fluid ( naphtha ) in the past with good results. Hold a paper towel or cloth cut from a T-shirt that is slightly larger than the sticker while you apply the lighter fluid. If you do this right, the cloth will stay on the car body as long as it is wet. After soaking for a while, pick at the sticker with the edge of a plastic throw away spoon. The plastic spoon is soft enough to not scratch the paint and the naphtha will not dissolve the paint but it will soften the glue that holds the sticker. The lighter fluid will remove any car wax though.

I was thinkig about doing this myself, but different color.
How easy is to take the headlight apart?

It's pretty rough, but if you take your time with it, it's not too bad. What we did was out the headlights in the oven for about 5 minutes each at the lowest setting (200) to heat up the urethane holding it together, then peeled it apart slowly. Just be patient with it

I had my light off when I was installing my 5k hids and my horns (bumper off). Started to unscrew the lights to remove the orange reflector then didn't want to deal with the putty. + I didn't have any putty for resealing if I needed to.

Did any of the plastic chip while trying to pry it? I'm more concerned about that and proper sealing of the headlight after.
