Has anyone had any problems with installing the Kia front mud guards? Only two of the three screws line up with the existing holes.

Sounds like you have the wrong mud guards...one is for the sedan and one is for the koup -- not interchangable.

I installed both types on my sedan and koup -- they fit perfectly.

Would you be so kind as to take a photo of the side view of the sedan with the mud guards on. I wanted to see how they looked on prior to purchasing them.

Thanks in advance

Take a look at any Koup or Sedan from Canada. The mud flaps are standard equipment here.
Here's a picture from of the SX-R launch. You can see the mud flaps really well in this shot.

looks good and thanks for the links.. I think i am going to grab them soon. Since i have the black sedan sx, they won't be so pronounced.

looks great on the above, kinda like the way they stand out.

I'm not sure if I like how much they stand out, I wish they were painted to factory paint colors...
They do not stand out terribly...they are actualy pretty small.

They look good!

EDIT: Well, just ordered all four on kiapartspeople.com I hope they take international CCs, kiaaccessorystore.com doesn't. Hope I don't get burned!

BTW, thanks to everyone who posted their pictures; you convinced me :)
