Heres a Link to were i got mine from

I bought mine from #1 cochran in robinson, and they told me the same thing. But I look around the internet for a while and found this accessory store. They dont have that much other that basic upgrades, but do have the mud/rain guards. I am having my acid rain clear coat and interior gortex put on today after work, so hopefully the md guards will be waiting for me when i get home and can have them install it when they do the other stuff today. Im also going to have them paint them to match the car, maybe.
Maybe we can do something sometime, Id like to see your car. I wanted the SX but I had to settle on the Ex, but i still love mine.
Heres a link to were I got my Mud/raini guards:

Kia Forte/Forte Koup Front Splash Guards

The listing says forte/forte koup.
Ill post a pic once all thats done sometime tommarow.
Makes me feel better that someone else has one around here, i was starting to worry.

I will be sure to let you know as soon as there on my koup. I have an appoinitment early tommarow at the dealership to have my clearcoat and interior protection plan done and they agreed to install the mud/rain guards for me. The cool thing is that they are going to paint them with the same gloss paint to match the blue of my car. It should look good. Will definatly let you know/

i live in robinson township, by the mall @ robinson, go to school in greentree, and work downtown for the army corps.

What about you?

I believe Mike is using the Kia Pre-release Shots that are pervasive on the web--however, it still looks nice. Maybe Mike is Korean. ;-)

I wish they would have come this way--black roof, black mirrors, those hot headlights, and the wheels rock. The black mirror black roof will be on my SX Koup soon. The weather has pushed the black roof back to next weekend.

Mud/Rain guards are on!!

Hey dambrosioj,

I had the dealer put them on for me at the end of last week when i went in to get my auto armor. They fit perfectly and give a really unique look and match the black accents of my koup. Its been raining here the last couple days as you most likely know, so i have already seen a benefit from having the guards installed. There is no longer than splash of rain or mud from the road on the exterior behind the wheels. If i were you i highly recommend getting some for your koup especially because it will help will all the salt they put on our cities roads this winter. I will post some new pics of my koup with the guards installed when i get off work tomorrow. Let me know what you think.

Take care,

Brandon

I love some of the details on that pic, soar4fun! Maybe these will show up as they update the Forte over the next few years. The black roof is sweet and I like the headlights as well.

I like the clean look without the door handles, gives it a very sporty look. I would have to agree the side mirrors do look better in black.
