New 2016 GT owner, rust proofing and dashcam?
Hello, just picked up a 2016 GT with tech package to replace our 2005 Mazda 5. The 5 was a practical car and we really enjoy driving it, and we would be still driving it. But the rust has gotten to the point where my mechanic say I should save the money and get another car instead of repairing it.
After almost 2 months of search, we finally found the perfect one for us. It was a lease return with 76,000Km, the owner traded it in for the 2018 turbo model. It was one of the best ones we saw. The dealer agreed on new front and rear brake rotors and pads, plus the previous owner left a set of 17" winter tires on aluminum rims.
I do have to agreed that the stock Dunlop tires noisy. But the most pressing matter for me is getting it rust proofed, don't want to have the 6 to suffer the same faith as my 5. Another items is installing a dash cam because my 5 have gotten a couple of hit and runs while parked in front of my house.
So, have anyone gotten there 6 rust proofed and which product did they used, Rustcheck, Crown? How about dash cam, anyone installed one? How difficult was the wiring? Thanks in advance.

Reason: Wrong winter tire size
