Last week I also acquired a black 2013 CR-Z EX. New wheels and tires (DR Racing six spoke with red trim ring and Yokohoma's 17 inches all around) are in the order pipeline, but my first step will be to spray over those chrome badges and logos on the back lid(and the one big center logo in front) with dark green Plasti Dip. It's a minor touch but makes a big difference to me and does not clash with the black car color, IMO..
The new Weather Tech floor mats (gray in color) arrived this morning and are already in place. The fancy Kenwood radio system (AM FM XM CD player, Navi and back up camera) will be installed either Thursday or Friday. Am thinking about a dash cam to monitor the motoring world around me, but no decision yet on that. There are some great videos on YOUTUBE that show the potential for this.
Of course will soon be making a visit to Honda service for usual maintenance items (oil change, AC charge, probably a front end alignment and inspection of brakes to see what's needed there. Plus anything else that becomes apparent. Some steering wheel light indicators are not working so I probably have some expired fuses due for replacement. Stuff like that.
Slowly but surely it takes on my personalty and becomes my idea of a cool car. This is my fourth Z and I love it already.
