Anyone know where I can get a set of these?



I think I'd prefer the amber turn indicator in the back to match the side mirror. I'd like to have the reverse sensors as well, although I'm not willing to drill holes in my bumper unless it's factory punched and sonic welded.

Gotta take a trip overseas to get the factory backup sensors. You can order the lights off ebay. I've seen sellers offer Euro/Asia spec lights.

In NA we get the backup cam option instead of the backup sensors.

I haven't seen a top spec Forte 5 before. Those chrome door handles look really silly.

They all do?

Where are you from? All of the Canadian 2011 SX's have chrome door handles. They look quite sharp on the black SX but I admit it doesn't look so good on the red ones.

You have to order the premium package in the US to get chrome handles.

Ahh, That explains it. In Canada the SX has everything except speaker lighting, on board Navigation, and push start. To get those options you need to purchase the "SX Luxury" model.

I don't understand why Kia would add chrome door handles to a car with virtually no chrome. I thought the SX was the sport model, so chrome is typically made black on other "sport" version cars. It just looks like something purchased off e-bay and tacked on.

From my understanding about the chrome handles....is that it is considered an upgrade from body colour. Therefore we get it, but I downgraded as soon as I could.
