    Hello, I currently have power side mirrors, but would much rather have the heated mirrors with turn-signals.

    I bought my first soul. When I bought it, I thought a certain piece of 'design' was part of the advertisement and would be removed before I get the car. I found out two days ago, that I thought wrong. I am not sure if I like the look of that 'stripe' or not. It asked the dealership and they...

    I want something custom on the blacked-out portion on the rear bumper valance, and am thinking about either carbon fiber vinyl or fabricating something else that gives a high end custom look. Just not a fan of that black plastic on my 2013. Has anyone come up with something?

    Anyone ever removed the exterior plastic door guard? (pic added) Someone dinged mine up pretty good, and in my efforts to clean it I only made it worse. It appears that the plastic trim piece slides back and forth a bit, which would indicate to me it's not glued to the outside of the door...

    How do you keep your soul pure? What sort of wash procedure do you undertake? Do you use the laser zapper wash? Or the old-fashioned flappy wash? Hand-only?
