I want to upgrade and protect my EX as much as possible while spending the least amount of money.
So far i have added these inexpensive options..

1. Chrome Exhaust finishers
2. OEM Cargo tray
3. Mud Guards
4. Steering Wheel cover
5. Center console cover
6. Aftermarket Cargo organizer

Is there any other "quick and easy and inexpensive (relatively)" inside or out... add-ons or accessories you guys can think of? The door body mouldings i am considering.. but on the fence about them.

Thanks.. i think i'll order the cargo trim protectors.. thats only like $60
want to stay under a few hundred really..

Mine came tinted already. Are you talking about tinting it more?
It also came with chrome exhaust and door mouldings.. i guess the dealer installed them because it was flatbed trucked from a different dealer over to mine.. but no splash guards.. picked those up for like $60 also
i dont know if its tint or just dark glass. back windows are definitely darker than the front though.

ok thanks.. yea will look into tinting then.. i know my dealer has a $199 tint special but no idea what tint they use for it. i am sure its not top quality for that price.
Got it from Amazon for $13
Fits great.

Have a link?

One I saw had issues in the comments that it DID and some said it did NOT fit the 2017/2018.

Can you please verify?

This is the one i bought.. fits perfect
What do you guys think of this rear bumper protector?

It looks hideous.

The last thing the CRV needs is another piece of ugly, cheap plastic slapped onto the exterior.
lol thanks.. yea was leaning that way also and i dont like the pattern on it really.. will cross that one off the list :)
its funny.. i have been looking at every new car lately also.. high end and low end, and no recently built cars have any kind of door bumper protection anymore.
Only 10+ year old cars seem to have and kind of door mouldings or bumper protection.

One minute i think it looks good and next i think it looks outdated.. cant decide. This specific one looks like the same one that i just saw on and old 1995 Honda.

I do want some extra protection though..

and it's purpose, may I ask?
what is the purpose of the plastic chrome anywhere on the external body? purely cosmetic
I got body side molding and a rear bumper cover from Sportwing, i'm happy with both! Gotta protect it since it costs so much :clap:
Which body side moulding did you go with?
It seems all these little bumper protectors, and coverings are around $45-60.. which isnt bad but man they are adding up quick! :)
And tinting wasnt even on my radar.. but i think now it is...
Paint protection so you no longer have to wax. Can also apply it to your rims and lights so water and dirt just slides off. Some people apply it to their windows but it distorts the view slightly so I didn't do it.

Went with Opti-Coat and it’s great. Repels water like crazy, no longer have to go through the process of waxing, just use quick detailer after washing and that’s it.

Door sill protectors to stop scuff marks as they no longer come standard. Got them off eBay. Look like the OEM ones minus the lights and the high cost.

Do you have a link to the door sills you purchased?
The seller I bought mine from doesn’t have it but here’s someone else selling the same item.

oh ok.. so looks like we can only get these from china sellers..
nice, but those have a Blue logo.. not sure that would look great with my steel color paint
i like these!
but on the fence whether its a little too much "CR-V"
may give it a try though

it was made for the overseas market so i had a few extra mats that i couldn't figure out where they went so i just stuck them in the glove box. You can get the black lettering if you didn't want it to be too much. The red matches the bright red start engine light but i went with the blue for 'Honda Blue' and it was voted by family.
My wife's coworker thought they were cool and wished he had them in his civic.

I like these much better than
hmm i see white and red lettering, but not black.. do you have a link?
This one has no lettering and looks OEM to me... I might just get it
dam i like this one too.. think i may go with this one now :)
Ordered one of these console organizers to try out. Tired of my stuff rolling around in the center console
This looks interesting but not sure if I would be annoyed if I need access to the usb ports or power outlet and have to take the entire storage area out.
I want some organization or dividers but dont want it to interfere with the current functionality or block the usb and power outlet.
This one just provides a back storage area but not sure if it blocks the tray from sliding then.
