Default 2013 Rio LX mod questions

I have a LX Rio and have been upgrading it a little at a time. I was wondering if anyone knew if the center console from an EX would fit into an Lx and if a radio from a ex would work with the lx controls

I found a wrecked Ex on ebay and got the entire center console for 150 and went to Kia of bedford and had it installed for 120 that's with tax. Its well worth it ill add pics soon.

BTW there was no modification needed if u pop up that black cover where the arm rest should be you will see 2 thin post that are meant to hold the bracket for the console with the arm rest.

there are most likely differences in base spec models between your countries.. maybe the US version doesn't come with a console lid

American base models have all of that except an arm rest. There's a center console but instead or an armrest there's a big hole that is useless and friends used it as an over-sized cup holder.
