Hi All

Nino from Johannesburg South Africa here.

I got my CX3 Individual Plus in snowflake white pearl about two weeks ago. My wife has the CX5 and based on how well it has treated us I bought my CX3 without even test driving or seeing one in the metal.

So far I'm happy with my choice. It’s abit small when I pile in my son and wife, dogs and pram but it’s perfect for a city run around and when we need to move the family further we have the CX5.

I've changed the interior and number plate lights to LEDs, laminx the fogs and front indicators and I've got a set of 'sports' pedals on the way. I think that's all that will be done to the car.

Oh please don’t say that 😳.
My last car was an experience filled with short bursts of awesomeness amongst plenty of swearing and shouting and hating the car, all because engine rebuilds and big turbos seemed like a great idea.

So I’m going to try keep this little guy stock

Maybe a little Nitrous bottle in the boot? A little puff of black smoke now and then never hurt anybody ;-)

Oh my word NO!!
Loving getting into a car and not worrying about why the boost pressure isn't right, what that weird clunking noise is or did I put race fuel in.
