    Disable the lock beep?

    Has anyone figured out how to disable the horn beeping when the remote lock button is pressed multiple times? My wife's 2018 CX-5 Sport has remote start that requires the factory fob lock button be pressed 3 times and it is loud and annoying as heck! Any suggestions, my neighbors will thank you.

    Extreme Temperatures

    I'm sure some of you can beat this easily, but I noticed that the highest temp I've seen on the display thermometer was 108F, and the lowest (this morning) was -8F, for a difference of 116 that my CX-5 has been subjected to. PS: Its f'in cold out!!

    My Winter Setup - Blizzak DM-V1 and Mazda 6 Wheels

    EDIT: Here is a performance review after this morning's drive in. I put these on at the perfect time. The forecast for last night and today was "Icy", which is the first time I've ever seen that word used as a weather condition (as opposed to a driving condition). What it translated into was...

    Interior Changes

    EDIT: Turns out the climate controls are from the GT/GS models which although they are very different from my Touring, they are not new. So the only change is the shifter, which was already covered in another thread. My bad, carry on. (For the record though, I still prefer the gated shifter)

    Installed Kenwood DDX-370 and Backup Camera

    Finally sick of dealing with the iPod issues, I went ahead and installed a Kenwood DDX-370 head unit a few weeks ago. For awhile, I researched how to get the factory camera to work with it, but I finally decided that converting 12 volts to 6 volts and cutting into the factory camera wires was...

    Custom Badge Decals

    I had these badge decals custom made awhile back and finally got around to putting them on. The carbon fiber emblem one is the only one I did not design, and it came off eBay.

    My Carbon Fiber Solution To Ugly Dash Trim

    I wanted to get a custom carbon fiber finish on the dash but when I attempted to wrap the pieces myself it didn't come out quite as perfect as I liked so I decided to send the parts out to Liquid Innovations in SLC Utah.

    Do NOT Let WalMart Make a New Key!!

    I always like to keep a spare key in my wallet in case I lock the keys in the car. I didn't want to use the spare original because it is too big. So last night I was at WalMart and figured I would get one made since I hadn't done that yet. Well, the key got stuck in the key machine for some...
