2018+ Regal: All Things Accessories

I thought it would be handy to have a common place to discuss all things accessories for the 2018+ Regals. Post pictures, questions, reviews, OEM products, and aftermarket goodies. Maybe specific, individual, threads will work out better in the long run... let's give it a go? 🤔

I'll start off with a super exciting picture of the OEM cargo liner (39105580) and cargo net (84051444). The liner is decent but I wish it was a more precise fit. I expect the laser cut aftermarket liners will fit better. Again, the cargo net is decent. I prefer the vertical nets that are more of a hammock. Smaller objects won't be very secure in the horizontal net offered for the Regal. However, it's probably ideal for larger items.

@mike69440, How is the sensitivity, or responsiveness, of the display with the screen protector installed? Notice any difference compared to the bare screen?
Let me use it a bit more before I can comment. Seems to be ok.
3/7/19 Have not notice any issue. Tough to install , especially where one of the sheets had the film label reversed. You get one shot at getting the sheet on correct.

Do regular kick mats like this one work with the GS racing-style seats?
Edit: I stand corrected! @RyeLou gave them the green light below.

My original thoughts: No. Since there are no head rest pillars, this style of kick mat won't work with the GS seats. I wasn't able to find a suitable alternative.

The GS seats do have a hard plastic back so they should be much more resilient to dirt and scuffs than leather. Still no match for a kid.

I have the exact mats you quoted in my car. They don't sit square like they do with a regular styled seat, but they work fine. I tied mine through the hole in the center of the head rest so it sits a little off center, but it's more than good enough to protect the seat backs from the kids.

Those door arm rest pockets look awesome- silly question, but does the TourX have the same door panel/arm rest as the other Regals?

Awesome! I've been thinking about these but haven't taken three seconds to look them up. The driver side door sill was scratched (among other things) by the dealer ☹. Once the scratches are corrected, I want to get all of the sills protected. XPEL products are some of the best from the sounds of it.

Now I'm just not sure how to go about installing the strip. I was thinking of installing it under the GS sill plate. But, I also want the sill plate itself protected. Any ideas on how to achieve that?

I actually purchased 4 types of paint protector films. I used the formed black ones on the F-150, the Plain Black one on the Sienna and the clear on the Buick.
The other wider clear roll I purchased is not the best quality, I ended up using it as scuff guard above the deployable bed side steps on the F-150.
Make sure you you a lot of water with a drop or two of sap to apply to get the bubbles out and allow time to position them.

Do you think the XPEL film is flexible enough to be worked into the "GS" lettering and design on the brushed aluminum sill plate? I know the aluminum sill plate is literally there to protect the paint, but it's too pretty to let it get scraped up too.

While I'm at it, do you have any pictures of the screen protector you installed? I was wondering how it looked since the display has more of a trapezoid shape to it.
