Sportage accessories you've installed?

Hey everyone! What are some accessories you've installed. I have the Sportage r cup and door tray inserts, the chrome ac vent trim, a leather shift boot aftermarket. I have a 2015 lx, so no leather steering wheel. I bought a leather steering wheel cover. I have the Sportage limited door release stainless inserts and just purchased the silver skid plate front and rear. I know many of you don't like chrome, but I'm a Harley Davidson lover and like chrome, so I have the six piece chrome window trim installed too.

Depends on what you're going for, Weathertech makes some good products for in channel window visors, excellent all weather floor mats, and cargo covers. there are a couple of side step bars available from a few different manufacturers, there are also a couple roof racks/ luggage platforms that are pretty nice (my next endeavor). I even found a light bar specifically made for these models that actually looks decent. As far as performance goes there is not a ton of stuff available, but it is out there.

on my 2012 LX I traded in, I did a small 1.2" drop with H&R springs and KYB shocks, drilled and slotted PowerStop Z23 rotors and pads. Full Alpine Navigation/ in dash DVD, Apine PDX monoblock amplifier hidden in the cargo tray (600w RMS @ 4ohms) to (x2) 12" Alpine S-type subwoofers, and JBL MS-62C component speakers up front. I gutted the whole interior including the roof liner and installed ~72' of Dynamat extreme for sound damping. Now I have a 14 SX turbo so I'm looking at go fast bits.

Cheers!

Did Weather Tech finally release the in-channel window visors? I signed up for a notification as to when they're available, but haven't received anything yet.

I need them for a 2018 Sportage.

2018 is "QL" body style. I don't think they are available for the new body style yet.

I have installed a K&N filter, custom catback exhaust, blow off valve, H&R lowering springs, KYB struts, converted most of the interior lights to LED, ceramic tint, fog light covers, wheel spacers (15mm rear, 5mm front), removed all but the two Kia badges from the outside, HID conversion, Brakestech cross drilled rotors, Akebono pads, Falken tires...

Oh and the latest was throwing some carbon fiber accents on the interior:

Turned out pretty good.

The carbon fiber stuff was from eBay, I got some door panel protectors from Shark Racing which are nice as well.

I went with a Flowmaster 40 series, plus removed the resonator from the stock exhaust as well.
