2013+ Kia Rio Aftermarket & OEM Parts

While looking for things for the little Kia I come across many other parts that are either not available at the dealer for many countries or are non-factory parts (performance, bodykits etc).

Ive came across these 2 sites so far that have many parts that we dont get anywhere else like lowering springs, rear spoilers, weather visors, alternate LED signals and more.

Korean Auto Imports International

2013+ Kia Rio/Pride Parts

Lot of badges, 2 different rear spoilers for the hatch, a few different sets of window visors, lowering springs, door pillar inserts, scuff plates, LED interior lighting, LED indicator upgrade, dash insert kits etc.

Mainly has parts for the hatch.

PartsWini.com

2013+ Kia Rio/Pride Parts

Lowering springs, LED rear bumper reflectors, vinyl strip (bonnet and rear bumper), carbon wheel dress up inserts (17 inch only), carbon pillar covers, carbon window panel stickers, LED badge, sun visors, LED relfector modules DIY kits (for both hatch and sedan; headlight dress up converts to indicators)

Not as many parts as the first one but has parts for both hatch and sedan owners.

When I find more I will put them up.

You'd get a better deal for some of the parts at ExLEDShop , like for example the LED Kits.
The main site is ExLEDMall which you'd see is all in Korean.

Can also try eBay, depending on what you want. Mods/Customizing is something I plan on doing about a week or two after I receive the vehicle I choose so I have everything Planned, priced, wishlist and waiting for me to hit the "Select To Pay All" option.

If you're handsie you might have to Modify something yourself. Like if you see something for the Optima or Forte that isn't for the Rio but you're sure would fix after a quick fix :-)

We now have a bodykit for our car:







[urlhttp://www.koreanautoimports.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=30_590&products_id=9857[/url]

The full bodykit is for the 5door. The sedan so far has a front lip:

Nothing for the 3door owners yet but the only things that may not transfer over so well are sideskirts. We have longer doors.

Usually the first round of parts for our cars are not the best but as long as they get feedback they will improve.

Once they work out what they can do you will find much more improvement

Another company that are starting to make things for the new Rio out in Germany:

RDX Race Design Kia Rio UB front lip

They only have the one thing for the Rio so far and its a universal fit product. altered in size to fit the Rio. It may come in 3 parts

edit:

Here is a demonstration on how it will fit any car:

RDX Vario X3 front splitter demo

Here are some pictures of how it looks on the Kia Pro Ced

We now have exhausts starting to come through for the Rio too; first one out is from Jun BL out in Korea:

There should be some hitting US/International retailers within a couple weeks.
