Don't worry, I told myself the same thing.
Now I have HID and mug flap installed.
I have the K logo waiting too.
Then next week, will have the remote starter.

I haven't done mods, other than adding a "My other car is a TARDIS" license plate frame, but I have suddenly gone hog wild buying things that bear a KIA logo. A car-shaped KIA keychain. A thermos. A water bottle. A tote bag. And since my hubby asked me about what I'd like him to add to my anniversary gift, I sent him a link to a white-on-white embroidered hat I liked.

It's my first new car and I'm nuts about it, can you tell? :)

I'm also looking at prices for WeatherTech mats. Yikes. But they look like they'll survive ANYthing short of a nuclear warhead, so I'm thinking about getting them.

Its a sickness, had the sub/amp wired up today, nice bump for such a small sub. Did you get the Kia hamster yet, we got a small one, 1 more hamster power(hp) can't hurt. :lol:

LOL! I was pricing Kia hamsters. :) I think the best price I've found so far was on eBay. I suspect that's next.

How did you get it wired up? Did you have to take out the head unit? I have the nav so I am not going anywhere near it or popping anything out of the dash. Dont wanna risk scratching on damaging anything.

They tied into the rear speaker wires so the dash was untouched, I did install the little switch under dash to control the bass. Isn't ground shaking bass but fills in the missing bass nicely.

Ah nice! Do you have some pics of the install or finished product? I would be curious to see it. And how much of a difference did it make in the sound? I assume you still have all the stock sound, just with added bass now?
