Looking for a non-OEM air filter on the CX-7. Someone told me about Baldwin, which has the oil cartridges, but no air filters for this model.

Just measured mine (OEM) - they add 3", not 2". Also, though I like the appearance, they won't take much weight (100 pounds max, I believe) AND they add a considerable amount of wind noise!

It really isn't very useful. Wish Mazda had instead put in the same "curtain"-style net everyone else uses so I could carry the bags of groceries like I used to in my Forester!

Thanks it seems like most people arent impressed so maybe I will see about returning mine. I was hoping it could hold grocery bags or something in place but doesnt look like it will.

I use mine all the time. It holds down grocery bags perfectly. plus the other day I picked up a bunch of pizzas and it held them down fine.
If you dont have it, your cargo is gonna slide around all over the place (I have the cargo tray)
try it, you'll like it................

I agree with Johnny. They're not that expensive, come in handy periodically, and when I don't use mine, then it's folded and stored underneath.

Thanks for the advice guys I think I keep it when it arrives. It can hold grocery bags in place it should suit me just fine. On a side note has anyone installed the rear bumber gaurd? Is there just some adhesive on the bottom that sticks to the bumber?

The bumper guard is an easy peel and stick installation. Just make sure the area is clean and then use the provided alcohol pad to prep the surface. Done properly, it will stay put for many years.

Thanks for the advice. I did decide to keep the net and am pleasantly suprised. It expands much more than I though it would. Again thanks for the input
