Finally made the appointment for 8/26/22 with my regular wrap shop to blackout the remaining parts of the vehicle that I decided will complete the look of my "brooding" CX-30 Carbon Edition for me. Going to black vinyl wrap the silver roof rails & the roof area between them back to where the rear black spoiler starts, and also the center raised portion of the front hood along the body line all the way down to the front grill area. My biggest gripe with the CX-30 has always been how the thick black plastic cladding & bumper doesn't look quite right with the rest of the vehicle (sticks out like a sore thumb IMO), & blacking out wheels, trim & certain painted areas is the way that the vehicle styling comes together better as a whole with that cladding (at least in my eyes). Will be money well-spent to get things where I want them with my CX-30.

Any pics of the sill covers installed?

Got a link please? Search didn't find anything easily. Thanks

It takes 4-6 weeks for it to ship out from the U.K. (I'm assuming that they are made-to-order in batches), so it will be at least later next month before mine ever arrives. Reminds me of the old mail-order days. :p

I finished blacking-out (via vinyl wrap) some additional parts of my carbon-edition 2022 CX-30, so that thick black plastic cladding/bumper finally fits properly into the design/look of the vehicle. I ended up redoing the front grill trim in black satin vinyl (instead of matte), and doing both the roof rails & the entire roof area between the two rails all the way back to where the black rear spoiler begins. On a whim, I also blacked-out the raised portion of the front hood along the body line all the way down to the upper front grill in the same black satin automotive vinyl. Definitely has a more distinctive, flowing, & sporty/rally look to it now. I'll add some pics when I get the chance, when we have a cloudy/overcast day & the bright sun out here isn't drowning out picture quality/nuance. I'm happy with the results.

The Original California Car Duster for my 2022 Deep Crystal Blue Mica Turbo Premium Plus! I keep my CX-30 super clean, but there are times when it doesn't need to be washed and just needs to be dusted off. This duster has been around for a long time, works great, won't scratch your paint/clearcoat and is affordable! Just read the directions and you are good to go!

First pics with all the added satin black vinyl accents (with sun too bright for good, nuanced pics, as usual). The entire roof & roof rails also being all black is still pretty low-key, but the "rally car" hood black accent is an eye-full. It definitely drowns out & downplays that thick, uniform CX-30 cladding though. :p The great thing about a vinyl wrap is that I can pretty easily remove it if I change my mind at some point.

Nicely done. Did you do that yourself?
I like that look, and want to add my opinion on another addition.
As I look at it what do you think about doing the lower front valance in black? Say from the signals down?
I think that would blend with the sides.
Just something that caught my eye when I was looking at the first pic.

Cheers.

Redline Tuning gas strut hood QuickLIFT. It took less than 10 minutes to install and no more hood-prop rod. Redline offers two different kits, this one is the more expensive of the two (21-26014-03). Redline Tuning is in the business to provide our Hood QuickLIFT Systems (gas springs, struts, dampers, lifters) for all vehicles that have an OEM prop rod.
Just installed mine today. Quick and easy install. 10 mins. Works great. I too purchased the more expensive version…. figured they would perhaps last longer (it’s a heavy hood after all). Easy access to engine area with no prop pole restricting movement.

Racing Bees Strut Tower Brace for the CX-30. The quality is outstanding and with a noticeable improvement in hard corner handling.

Interesting and a decent price but they get you on the shipping side.
$150 for the brace and with taxes and shipping it jumps to $280.

$117 for the bar and $67 shipping to Phoenix, Arizona, so was right on par with other strut power braces.

I turn my Cx 30 in tomorrow. Getting the head and tail lights blacked out and the rims done in matte black. After this I'll get all terrain tires. The job will take 2 days I can't wait to get it back Saturday. I'll miss her while she's gone. But I got a Ol lady the Mazda 626 I can drive.
