Looks good to me. 5% tint is pretty dark and illegal in my state. I'm wanting to change my front and back "Kia" badge. Where did you get yours done?

Thanks! My fiance did them. He ordered them off of EBAY. 5% is not legal here either, but so far so good.

Looks good on a black car. IMO it wouldn't be the same on a red or blue Koup. Did you put something in the screw holes or leave them open?

Looks nice! Just have to get the head and tail lights blacked out and it'll be perfect.

Ah cool! I was wondering what the wheels would look like with the silver off, I LOVE IT!

Mines a loaded black SX. I'd love to get those caps. I have the front & rear badges but didnt install them yet (too cold and snowy here)

ebay user "motor247" sells them for $34.99 for 2 (front & rear) I got mine from Cali to Wisconsin in 3 days from when I paid for them. They are great quality.

Ebay sellers name is : automotive apple (for wheel center caps)
My fiance paid $20 for both front and back wheel caps.

Ebay sellers name is : jayongmall (for K symbol emblem on car)
his listing doesn't speicify Koup or Sedan...so make sure you email him.

Thanks for all of the shout outs! It is fun to have others excited about this car like I am. I would love to see pics of your cars too!!!!

Here's a link to headlight/foglight tint. Haven't been able to find any taillight tint's yet... They've got to be out there though.

Headlight Tint Kit for the Kia Forte 2010

Some flat black paint on the calipers would add some extra to the look as well. :)
The site says Kia Forte...and not Forte Koup. I am pretty sure the headlights are different??? Any advice?

Hands down this is my favorite Koup I've seen yet (Besides my own of course :D).

As for tinting your taillights, I would ask around at tint shops. I asked my tint shop and they quoted me 80 bucks to tint the taillights. A little pricey for such a simple thing but it saves me the work and it looks good.

So I've been looking at the "K" wheel caps that they've been selling on eBay for some time now but I've only seen them come in blue. Did you order the blue ones and they were actually black or did you find some one eBay that were actually black?

WOW! Are you talking to me???? I appreciate the compliment! I agree...$80 does seem high. I will ask around and see what I can find.

My man ordered them on ebay and said he had to look around quite a bit to find black ones. Maybe you can email the guy with the blue ones to see if he has some in black??
