Well the price of the parts is set by KIA Canada but dealerships can sell for what ever they want. Any chance you have a cost breakdown of the kit? How was your painting? As parts alone do not cost half of that total. Also what did they charge for install? As for rims....you might have been able to get them in that price as well. Depends on your dealership.

Yeah, individual prices would be great, and yes i'm pretty sure 18” Europa Wheels and
Yokohama S-Drive Performance Tires are a part of the R package!

The wheels are part of the Original package, but the dealerships are allowed to offer whatever they want and can call it the R package. I have seen dealerships do various different packages. I have even seen them offer the lowering springs which are not part of the kit anymore. There is no REAL R package with a set price.

You buy what you want, at individual prices. If they bundle it, that is up to them.

Did you read what you signed? Sorry has to be asked....Let me tally up those prices for you....and I'll post back in a bit.

Sides = $475 + paint +install
Front = $475 + paint +install
Spoiler = $575 + paint +install
Exhaust = $575 + install
Filter = $55
R door sills = $94.25
R badges = $30.25 each (x2)

Total before paint and install = $2,310
Wheels alone are $1600.

From memory and research in the forums (http://www.forteforums.com/forums/koup-body-kits-appearance/3479-sx-r-parts-prices.html#post44962).

Hope this helps.

Holy crap thats a bit crazy!!! There was no set package for me, I could choose what ever I wanted and he gave me a deal on each part. With painting costing $449 and labour costing $69 an hour...think it took 3 1/2 hours, I got the Front skirts, side skirts, rear spoiler, R door plates, and R badges for $2450 I think...somewhere around there...and it would have costed me an extra 600 for the exhaust and filter. So what you got would have ran me about $3000. Seems like you paid more than what everything is worth plus a shit load for painting and labour. Sounds to me like you got jipped! I wouldn't have handled that man!

I would hate to say this but for that money I would have bought the TK's Turbo package before parts that make the car go no faster....LOL but that is just me. Mind you I have these parts as well.

Hmmm sounds a little too much to me. You should definitely ask for a price breakdown and compare it to what you find on here for pricing. The wheels should for sure be included at that price!

for $2300 you could have gotten the NEFD body kit, a spoiler, tk.com full exhuast, tint, HID, CAI, door scuffs, rrm strut bar, lowering coils and made your own badges.... you paid for the letter R pretty much. dealerships are such a rip off

I would hate to be the Badnews Bear but...If you signed without reading the dealership is not liable. If you ever read the fineprint on any KIA advertisements it always says dealers are free to set individual prices or may sell for less.

However I would talk to them and be calm about about, don't go in ranting and raving...remember they have your signature on file saying you agree to pricing. What they have done maybe unethical but not unheard of.

My suggestion is find a new dealership ASAP, and always ready what you are signing. Also alway do your background research. These prices have been posted on this forum since the package was available.

I do feel for you and keep us informed. Just another life lesson to be learned, please let this be a eye opener for others as well.

I'm not a fan of the NEFD kit and I like my warranty but everyone has a preference and the right to their own opinions!!
