Hey All,

Just got my KOUP today - pretty pumped. Got the SX fully loaded in racing red for 18,600 (manual). About as good a deal as I could get as I knew the sales person and I saw the invoice etc. 20,600 out the door.

Anyway wanted to ask some advice on easy mods. First thing I am doing is ordering a set of badges so I don't have a KIA sign anywhere visible. Next I am thinking about the lip spoiler. Is ebay the best place for this stuff? I see items on their but not much variety...
My windows are also already tinted - did everyones else come like that? I know they did it for my car as it was in the showroom but it did not come from the factory this way.

yes the sharkracing lip spoiler has an exact match. they use color codes for our cars. i know one member bought a spoiler off ebay. one that looks sorta like the civic si spoiler and they couldnt color match her red koup but sharkracing should def color match. id email and make sure they can before buying tho. just to be safe. but shouldnt be a problem

I don't do wing spoilers, so I went with the Bright decklid spoiler. I ordered it from Kspec, and got it in 4 days.
The color matching for each color is going to vary, but for Titanium Silver, it's dead on perfect.
