Been a member of kia-forums for a while and just recently found the kiasoulforums. My wife had a 2000 Kia Sportage but she wanted a Soul when they came out. She's a ginger so I thought she should have a Soul. So a few years ago we bought a new 2010 Black M/T Soul Sport. She loves the car and I actually like driving it around too. It's definitely not emasculating like the purple Sportage. I recently decided to retire my 1985 BMW 745 and bought a new 2013 Optima SXL. I felt bad she had to drive that "old" Soul around, so I updated it with a few mods for Christmas. She loved the heated seats in the Optima so I ordered a 2 seat dual temp carbon fiber kit from ebay for $65. Also I got her a rear view mirror kit from ebay for a Nisson 370z for $250. The kit includes a Gentex mirror with auto dim, compass, homelink, 3.5 lcd and all the wiring and a camera. I may do a write up on both. Also added a cone air filter and painted the calipers red.
Only complaint I have is the inability to stream music with the 2010 radio. But I put all her music on a little 8GB usb nub that she just keeps plugged in all the time.
