I posted an example from the Honda Element forum of how well-organized the forum could become. The example setup would alleviate a lot of the confusion on where to find things and what belongs where, etc.

Interesting, I'm not sure if which I like more, the open or closed look.
I wrapped mine with some carbon fiber look vinyl before installing them.

It wouldn’t benefit me, but my passengers always mention it (especially my dad). I don’t have it, but saw it’s been installed on these forums so it makes the list.

My wife will put stuff in the pocket on road trips and when we stop, things would fly out when she closed the door but not anymore 🤣

At least it wasn't as bad as the previous gen Sorento. Anything you put there would immediately fall right to the floor. 🤦‍♂️

New OEM find added for anyone without paddle shifters, may need more investigation on compatibility. Maybe some of the Kia techs on here may know if this will work with anything that has the WDCT?

lol the hybrid EX has paddle shifters and I have no idea why. There is no tach, no gear indicator, and most of the time I can't tell if the trans is shifting or if the car is switching between gas and battery. One of these days I'm gonna be making a hard turn hand over hand and accidentally smash down a gear.

This popped up in my buy again section. Something I've had/used since 2019 and is great to hang over the center arm rest towards the back passengers. Doesn't block the vents either. Even has buttons to hold the bags.

@C-Trink I just noticed your signature says Shark Racing BOV, do you have it already and installed? Really curious how it sounds 😁

I’ll try and get some sounds up. Kind of hard to record the sound of a BOV…

They actually ship two trumpets with their BOVs. I'll get a sound of each (that's actually easy to change!). Plus I want to hear the other one. I do wish Shark would sell the BOV flange separately so I could choose the BOV. Most BOVs use similar flange sizes. I actually wanted a sequential style, but for the price I paid and the PIA it was to install I'll be sticking with this for a while.

BTW; does anyone have a 1.6T and know what the flange looks like? The first order they shipped me had the wrong flange and I believe it to be a 1.6T flange, but don't have a master to compare it to. Great opportunity for someone with the matching flange size to buy my extra flange and put whatever BOV they want on the end of it. THE WORST PART of them sending me the wrong one, was that I had disassembled the diverter valve from the pipe and only then realized it was the wrong size. This is not a fun install.

hmmmm

me, knowing almost nothing about turbochargers but having a 1.6T. I’m tempted. How could i check? I’m wondering if the 1.6T inthe hybrid is a match

Their mistake is on the left. Sorento diverter in the right. You’ll need to disassemble or do some research. If you want measurements I have a set of calipers to get them for you.
