Default Rio body pannels

I was hit from the rear and the only part that is really messed up is the matte black piece with the license plate on it and one of the license plate illumination lamp housings. Does anyone know of a good place to order these parts online?

Get it from any dealer, the part is cheap as anything. Its only $45

The license plate lights, not sure on those but may be cheaper getting aftermarket LED set

If you were hit from the rear then why not let your insurance company take care of it? You shouldn't have to pay a deductable. Let Kia and the insurance company fix you up.

I hit a retread and it half tore out that same piece. You can get it shipped for around 38 (for the sedan anyway) from kiaparts.com. I have yet to order it. My Rio is currently a bit ghetto with clear stranded packing tape holding it in place.

I did notice that the body parts, even the metal body panels, are very reasonably priced.

KIA has priced their parts quite well even here in Saudi Arabia.

I can sell you the parts you need cheap. I will need the last 8 of your vin# to get you the correct parts, if you like PM me the vin and I'll get you some prices.
