  1. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Oh look, I'm back and again, not sure if this is the right place to put it. (It did say "problems" and "seek advice from others" so I assume it is the right place) Anywho, like the title says: MAJOR bumper repair. Or more like the whole front. got into a minor car accident on my way to school...
  2. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have been looking at the 2012 Exclaim package Soul. Some of the online pictures are showing the black inserts of the front and rear bumpers painted to match the body color. When I build my Kia on kia.com it shows the standard black inserts, but the options information list says they should be...

  5. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Me and the wife just added a second car to the house...a 2011 Kia Soul +(Black). Wouldn't you know it a car ahead of my wife hit a tire in the road...the tire fly up and wrecked the front bumper...cracked, scratched, etc. Needless to say we're in the markert for a replacement bumper. Does anyone...
  6. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So I got tapped from behind by a Honda Accord while sitting at a red light this morning. Very minor damage. If she was oriented a bit to the left, no damage would have occurred. My question is: Is the bumper a one piece unit or can just the unpainted black plastic around the license plate be...

    Sorry if these have been posted before but I looked and all the links/images of the new 2012 KIA Soul were taken in Denmark or some place like that, that had snow on the ground. These photos were taken in Germany..no snow. Still in mule clothing to hide most visible upgrades, but take a look...

    Someone backed into my front bumper and cracked it... anyone know if there's a way to repair other than replacing it?
  10. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Has anybody removed the black bit (the tusk!) on the lower middle of the front bumper below the grill?. I am considering doing a few little mods.... horn, LED running lights etc and want to know how much access this will give - and if its possible to remove it without removing the whole front...
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Has anybody added any kind of lights in the 3 slots under the license plate holder? Please include a link to the lights if you can... i've had my bumper off and those slots look like a perfect place to put 3 led amber parking lights. There is a nice 'landing pad' to install them(which would be...

  13. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    First you need black reflective tape, scissors/razor knife. Pull your reflectors off the car via the 1 screw per reflector. When you get the reflectors off you will see two small screws on the back remove them. Then the reflector will slip out of the holder. Clean the lenses with rubbing...

  15. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Group: I would like to get your thoughts and suggestions on this idea. I've wanted to add some extra lights on the rear of my Soul. At first, I thought about ordering the LED lights from Shark to put in the rear bumper. You know, the little square ones on either side of the license plate...

  17. Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I picked up my Soul this past week and it has installed the Stillen bumper and wing. I noticed that the "paint" seems to be peeling from the front bumper. Is this suppose to happen and what should I do? It looks like a flat black underneath so was wondering if I should just wash off the...

    What does anyone think about this? I put thise on because I backed into a poll a couple of weeks ago and was very upset that I put a 2 inch crack in my rear end rite above my plate {tag}. I found this at korean auto imports and it coverd the damage perfectly. It was 129.00 us dollars. I thought...
  19. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I was just washing the Soul and was wondering if anyone has mounted any Driving/Fog lights into the front bumper slots? The slot is about 7 1/4 " x 1 3/4 " and the pocket lip goes back about 2 1/2 " :cool:
  20. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Has anyone installed the rear bumper LED-lights advertised by Shark Racing or EvoFusion? If so, was the install difficult to do? Are they bright enough to justify the cost? Thanks in advance, GATOR72 BTW: I contacted a KIA dealer in Scotland about getting the recepticles for their rear...
