I'll start it off with my 2 day old Turbo Premium Plus! Took it for a mountain drive to break it in, fun vehicle to drive on twisty gravel roads in Off-Road mode.

馃槏馃槏 Lovely! How did you obtain the side rocker garnish?
I got them from the dealership. I installed the rockers, sport pedal kit and illuminated sill plates today, kind of geeked out with accessories. Black Mazda license plate frame, rubber mats and cargo cover were the others.

The sills were the easiest, they are battery powered so no wiring, just put the template on the sill and stick them down, hopefully they stay in place.

The pedals require drilling for the throttle and dead pedal, not hard, just a cramped space to work in. The brake pedal was the worst, it is tough to get the thick rubber to bend.

The rockers required drilling as well and drilling into a brand new car made me think, WTF am I doing?!? Not tough to do but take it slow. Using the templates is a must.

That's awesome sauce! It all looks so great! I'm surprised the rocker garnish was just an adhesive stick on lol.
The rocker garnish is attached with inserts and glue, drilling is required. The illuminated sill plates are adhesive only.

On a side note, the sill plate chrome scratches easily. :(

This color is outrageous. The pearlescent sheen, the way the color shifts with the body lines, just incredible. Difficult to keep clean though, I am guessing?
I had a pearl CX-5 and now a Ranger w/Platinum white... IMO white is the easiest to keep clean as it takes a lot to make it look dirty.. then as you go to darker colors dirt shows more quickly but when clean they typically look better.. black being the worst, I'll never have another black vehicle.. lol
