Let's face it, us who bought CX-5's have now seen just how much Mazda "cheaped" on on the fricken things. Don't get me wrong, I love my CX-5, but it angers me that Mazda cheaped out on puddle lights under the mirrors, no footwell lighting, not even the option of ambient lighting, a center armrest that doesn't slide forward, android auto missing on models as late as a month ago, and on my particular model, no dials to close the center air vents whereas in some countries, they do in fact have them. It pisses me off that I must now retro fit most of this crap. On the plus side, at least I'll have video themes for my YouTube channel now to show people HOW to fit this stuff!
As for cheaping out on the paint job, mine is snow flake pearl white and I haven't noticed this on mine, but red is a color that will scream out where ever it wasn't applied properly or thinly.
