I emailed JayongMall.net about their front skid plate asking what kind of material it was made from and how easy was it to install. Their answer was that they didn't know [what material it was made from] and suggested that I had it professionally installed.

@radiowc, I'm curious to know how involved was the installation of your skid plate and is it plastic or aluminum?

Hi

Those are like the same material like the other spoiler.(plastic)

WARNING.
=======
if you are US region... THE FRONT IS NOT THE SAME/MATCH if you look closely the European/ASIA region their lower front bumper don't have the same curve, which i found out when i got it, so i have to custom cut it myself to fit. But the back one match 100%

And i glad it was plastic, else i have to return it Just like US region have the different fogs light


Hope this will help before your purchase

Thank you very much for this information! I can now scratch this accessory off of my list.

Does your Sportage come with TPMS? Or anyone installed after maket units.

Mine? I honestly don't know as it is not mentioned in the (downloaded) version of the Canadian manual (and I haven't looked in the hardcopy lately) although my dealer did mention it during vehicle walk-through at pick-up. Of course he also didn't know that the panoramic sunroof also tilts.

Thanks for the reply. How about other guys? Mine here has no TPMS.

Only one to know if your not sure if you have TPMS..... Lets some air out of one of the tires probably 24PSI or below should trigger the TPMS when you start the car.

The accessory could be everything and anything that is aftermarket (not from factory).

The following are pics of my first accessory. These are Romik side step running boards in black. They were about $325 (including discount) from Autoanything.com. The installation was about 2 hours. There was no drilling involved and the use of T-bolts was how the brackets were attached to the frame. The hardest part of the install was trying to hold the bracket while attaching the washers/nuts. I did it alone but may be easier with a 3rd hand.

Hi! My friend. You look for which car accerries fit your car, first you need to let the supplier know the car model and date. Please check this link: Wallner Technology co., ltd.-Car dvd player-Car Digital tv receiver-LCD monitor-Car video-Rearview camera-waterproof camera-Gps navigation-LED lights-Specail lights . The price can't above $325, you can check which one you like. There are many of them.

I was thinking of doing just that, but I also read in another version of the owner's manual that I downloaded that if the TPMS light does not light up for 3 seconds after starting the car that there may be a fault (and to check with the dealer). Being a brand new car (two weeks old), I wouldn't expect any faults, so I am quite certain that mine doesn't have TPMS. This also held true with the Canadian version of my previous car (Mazda 3, the late model Canadian versions never offered TPMS, but the American versions did).
