Anyone care to share their ideas on what inexpensive DIY mods would be good for my Shuma. I've already debadged the back, and fitted a large bore trim on the exhaust. I'm planning on meshing the front grille.

I am interested in any mods you have done interior or exterior, but would be particularly interested in anything you have done with the small slot underneath the stereo head unit, I've just got a sort of plastic open fronted box there that isnt much use for anything.

I am really open to any suggestions, I've seen so many nice modded kia's on this forum it's hard to know where to start.

I'm not that bothered about engine mods, I want to concentrate on exterior and interior. I'm already planning to alter the front grille, and possibly add some graphics. I would love a body kit but you just cant get them in the UK, and I cant afford to bring one over from the US.

This is mod on a tight budget.

I would love suggestions on how to economically make the car look better both outside and inside.

OK these are the sort of things I'm looking for:

Area below the CD head unit presently has a plastic shelf - I would like to do something different in there.

Front grille, Ive changed my mind from meshing now, I wouldnt mind using a koeran kia badge on there and something else- any offers?????

side repeaters, are they worth changing to clear ones? If so how to you get them off?

Maybe a few subtle graphics

I am really open to absolutely ANY suggestions, as long as they don't cost much to achieve

well for the emblim i have this 1 for sale the blue and black one


10+ shipping charges.

As for clear corners just get the reflector outta there. then get some super white bulbs. brighter and niice look to it.

also you could debadge the rear if you havent done so yet cheap and easy.

I've done the debadging on the rear, and I've got my eye on some clear repeaters on ebay. I think I need to have orange bulbs in them over here in the UK though. Now for that damned shelf under the stereo.........

heres a site that has dash kits & a spoiler on sale in the uk http://www.caressentials.co.uk/clearance_c...r/kia_stock.htm
that might be a little more pricey that what you wanna spend, but if i were you, id just save up a little money & get something really nice.
as far as the thingie in the dash, i keep mine to put stuff in but it would be cool as a modification lighting switch conslole or something like that. or you could just pull out the box in there, get a flat piece of plastic or something fitted to the front of that space, & get something engraved on it, or even some kinda vinyl graphic logo or something....i dunno just a thought :D
