Need help,
I want to order a rear spoiler lip but when I sent my colour code the seller on Ebay is calling it sweet orange. My colour code is O9 and the car colour according to dealer is Burnt Orange. Having a tough time finding the colour any one know if the colour is right?

Open your driver door and look on the door jamb for your paint code...if your code is O9 you are okay. The Copperhead color is also known as burnt orange and sweet orange -- and has the same code...cause it is the same color. Just make sure they know it is a 2010 model. I had my Kia spoiler painted for my sedan SX and the paint shop called it sweet orange...it matches PERFECTLY!

Yep, I've had similar issues with my paint color, the code is "HO" but it's called Electric Blue Metallic in Canada, Corsa Blue in the US and Santorini blue in Korea. When I ordered my rear glass and front lip spoilers, gave them the the "HO" code and it matches perfectly.:D

PS. I got my stuff from AutomotiveAPro in South Korea.

Looks like you drill the holes then use the screws and clips along with the tape. Seen a vid with Civic and a lip spoiler being installed and seems the same.

um you might wanna make sure its for the koup... your avatar is a koup and the spoiler is, as listed, for the sedan. says its fitment is for the 08 09 10 and up kia forte. unless you asked and they said it would work on the koup, then im wrong :)

Holy crap, I bought a sedan spoiler....oooopsy....now I really feel dump. too funny
Happens to the best of us...LoL. The trunklids are not the same width between the Coupe and Sedan, and the lids are not the same in shape either. The Koup's trunklid has a "smashed W" look from the rear while the Sedan's trunklid is curved up. There's another thread on this in here...you could use the Sedan spoiler but it depends on where the spoiler mounts.
