Did someone ass ram you? someone hit the back of my car in a parking lot while I was not there , I get back and theres red paint on my rear bumper, got rid of the paint but my white paint chiped off too, I got a touch up pen from kia and fixed it up, its still noticable when you look at it though.... anyways back on topic Im not a big fan of the front but the back and sides look nice.

My wife tried to make a kia crossover, she backed into a kia serento lol. We just hung it on there to see what it looked like on te car. I don't think I will be putting it on my car, they wanted $2600 to fix the back bumper, fill in the holes on the front bumper and paint them, and to paint and put the kit on. Thats a little much for me. Plus I am not a fan of the front because of the lines it just doesn't match the stock lines.

How exactly do you mean 'first'? Hasn't anyone else done a body kit on a sedan yet? Or you mean first of this particular kit? Just seems weird because we've had an actual factory kit for our sedans for two months now... sure it's in Canada but if we have it, y'all can get it, so I'm just curious at the wording.

Otherwise, I am quite interested to see what the finished product looks like. Not sure how those lines on the skirts go with the body line just above it but painted should change things considerably. Good luck with it.

The kit in this thread is the factory kit in the Non-NA markets. Check the Singapore forums and pretty much all the sedans have them

From what I was told by the guys who got it, this is the first body kit for the sedan ever sent to the usa, they could be wrong I am not sure.. I am not sure if kia makes a kit and sells a kit to people or not, at least my dealership doesn't. Here is what it looks like painted and on another car.
