History
I wanted the ex but they wanted $7GS more so I got the lx for 21k,I was told by the salesman an by there head tech that it would be impossible to add the DRL-LEDs, (that's b/s there's NUTHING in life that's impossible!) I'm a tech I bought the headlights w-oem LEDs for $299.00 each on eBay an was able to wire them up 100% as close too factory, an even better! With a simple modification that cost less then $35.00 ([email protected])

Interior
Since I got the lx model I still wanted leather seats, the great thing about the 2012 model is that the door panels an center console already come with leather trim, I'm a (KATSKIN) leather dealer so I was able to get a great deal on the exact leather kit, that the dealer would have sold me for$1250.00 for $450.00.installed it my self an looks the same as factory for$800 less
Exterior
Replaced all the factory emblems,,, looks a lot better,, I love my sportage but hated that big ass Kia emblem! I was able too add the factory led headlights an had the techs at KIA freaking out an wondering,,,,HOW HE DO THAT!! (it's all Kia parts so no worries about warranties !!
Audio
Replaced the basic stock radio with an oem navigation unit I bought online,, the wiring wasn't plug n play but it wasn't too difficult to install, I did have to add a 4-channel amp to power the speakers since it didn't have the premium sound system, an it is needed if u install the factory navigation, total install time with amp took 2.5 hours
Suspension
TBA
Wheel and Tire
Any suggestions?
