Hey... any chance you could come up with a part number? I've asked my dealer and they claim there's no such product. I have a hard time believing that they'd sell a bumper protector in Canada but not in the States. Would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Those are for Kia Canada. There are bumper protectors for the Forte sedan, Koup, and Soul.

Part numbers:
Soul – 99997 762K01
Forte – 99997 761M01
Koup – 99997 761M02

I don't know if Kia USA offers another style though.

Thank you. Sent my dealer the picture and part number; they still say that it's unavailable in the US. Seems like a strange accessory not to market here, but whatever. Maybe it'll show up soon. Thanks again...

I just placed an order for mine through my dealership... will add a little extra texture to the car... not to mention cover some of those scratches.

Hrm... I'm so jealous. If anyone wanted to buy an extra, put it up on ebay and send me the link, I think I'd be willing to pay 15 USD or so, plus shipping, over the actual cost. I want the "koup" one though.

Evidently they don't sell them in the US. I guess they're only sold in Canada.

Sorry about the delayed response. Work has been crazy lately. That would be great!! I sent you a private message.

So... for anyone else in the US who might be interested... I decided to just try contacting a Canadian dealership to see if they'd ship to the States. These guys will: Brantford Kia | Pre-Owned dealership in Brantford, ON N3R 8A1

They're near Toronto.

There's also a company selling a pretty basic looking bumper protector for the Koup on ebay now, but I think the official one looks better.

How come none for the hatchback?

Those are for Kia Canada. There are bumper protectors for the Forte sedan, Koup, and Soul.

Part numbers:
Soul – 99997 762K01
Forte – 99997 761M01
Koup – 99997 761M02

I wish they had one of these for the hatchback. :(
Anyone know if the sedan model will fit nicely on the hatchback bumper?
