    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    I've had two sets of factory visors and they worked well. One came loose, the dealer fixed it when I drove in with the part flapping. I've got a set of Weather Tech but am having second thoughts. We got the front pair in, the back has clips and is a bit more complex. Your experience? Thanks...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    As many of you may know, I recently changed out the factory rims on my 2016 + for some black 17x7.5 Liquid Metal rims. I kept the factory rims but I'm not sure what to do with them. Because I live in the south I don't have a need for summer and winter rims/tires like people up north do. The...

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I am considering replacing my factory horn with either a HELLA Supertone or a HELLA Sharptone dual horn kit. Does anyone have any experience with either of them? Nothing is wrong with my factory horn, I just feel like it is lacking in the attention-getting department. Supertone: Sharptone:

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    I really want to add the spoiler to my 2014.
