Hi everyone, traded in my 2016 LX and got this about a month ago. Going to tint the windows, I'd like to do some other mods, but don't know what yet (suggestions welcome!)

I have a 2022 Sporty Blue GT-Line and love it. Great gas mileage and amazing looks. I have my windows tinted and the AEM air intake. Other than that there really isn't a whole lot of mods out for it currently. You can get a strut bar from Evilla Motor Sports – Kia and Hyundai Car Pars and More and I believe there may be some lowering springs out there you can use from an older year Forte. No exhausts systems yet though. Slim pickins as of now.

Tinted windows are going to look SHARP with the white paint!

The problem with the 2022 (non_GT) models is that the exhaust doesn't have an exposed tip so the aftermarket exhausts for the 2019-2021 non-GT models won't work without cutting a hole in the lower bumper panel.

This model Forte just looks good in white. I think you would like some mildly tinted windows. I wouldn't overdo the tinting, just enough.

If you would like to do some easy modifications, check out the Forte section at sharkracing.com.

Matt did you do anything with the throttle body when you installed the CAI I’m leaning hard towards this mod myself?

Well i did the front speakers ,a piece of cake with a little ice cream, a 6.5 Kickers we go :)but you have to destroy the OEM speaker too use its frame as a mounting bracket, just cut the oem speaker out of its bracket, but yes definitely an improvement will be doing the back doors next, a tinkering I go
