Got a little Christmas present and installed it today...LoL

It is the Polished Aluminum Fuel Door Accessory available through Kia.
Install was fairly easy. Fit was a little off - I had to file the bolt slots (hinge side) to get the fuel door to better center itself in the body opening. Reinstalling the hinge bolts was a little fun -- the ring around the door prevents you from getting a straight shot with a ratchet or socket driver...I had to use a 10MM open wrench to final tighten them.

Looks ok...and according to the advertisement it will make people wonder what I have under the hood!?!? LoL!

Hope the pictures take care of any questions about the install.

i want to get one for my sedan
Don't see one listed for the sedan on the Kia site...yet. Maybe they will provide one, but it would probably depend on if they sell many for the Koup.

It's a nice addition, little pricey, and it looks to be able to handle paint too -- if one is inclined to paint it body color.

You read my mind about the painting....LOL maybe not Body colour but even black might look good.

Depends on the car's color -- I covered it in black tape to get an idea of what it would look like black on blue. I like it aluminum against the blue for now.
I'd bet it would look good black on a racing red Koup!

Nicely done. Instead of painting would you consider putting a vinyl sheet over it. Different color or maybe even the Carbon Fiber Look?

Sounds like a good idea. Get one, paint it up, and show us the pics...LoL!
