Hello from Ontario, Canada

Hello fellow forum members,

Purchased a 2017 CX-3 GT in Crystal White Pearl with the Tech Package.
Pulled the brakes apart and painted them red.
Put down a nice wax. Amazing how many exposed painted exposed surfaces there are on the car (Especially all the door jams and exposed under-side of the hood...why no liner?!?!)

I would recommend removing the 2 screws holding the rear rotors on and apply anti-seize to them. Doesn't look fun after they corrode.

Car has been amazing for all 150 KMs.

Welcome to the forum.

In markets where the Diesel engine is an option, you can get a hood insulator. I definitely don't like copper or aluminium based anti seiz but they won't harm on those screws.

Currently CX5 SportNav 2.2 diesel automatic and AWD.
Formerly CX3 SportNav 1.5 diesel automatic and AWD.
