  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Took me awhile to notice the grill is mostly solid. Only the top two rows and half a bottom row is open for air to flow through. Anyone know the purpose of this? Also, what is the "thing" attached to the back of the grill? Is it some sort of cooler?
  2. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I just bought a new to me 1.6 manual shift Soul. I noticed the front grill has only a few horizontal rows of open air flow holes at the top and bottom with most of the center holes closed off. I was just curious as to why this is set up this way. Why not all open for max air flow?

    Howdy folks So i wanted to buy the burner style grill, the one with the 3d effect, for my Soul, but imo its kind of pricey (more than 200 euros) for a small thing. So i wanted to know if anyone has it and if its worth it. My Soul have a chrome simple grill, its the european CRDI AM spec.

    So I'm not a fan of running front plates, however I don't mind putting them off to the side. When I took off my front plate today it was screwed on with 6 + screws. 1) Does anyone know if from factory they do this or is it just the dealerships silliness. 2) I can't find an aftermarket place...
  6. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    So the grill is new for 2017, but in my opinion it didn't have much flair for a Turbo. I got on eBay and ordered a factory Tuon grill from the Red Zone. I didn't realize the "grill" texture was matched to the radiator opening in the Red Zone, but I don't think it looks bad. Thoughts?
  7. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Does anyone have a picture or two of the upper grill removed on the Gen 1? As loud as the stock horn is, it gets lost with highway noise. I was going to see about doing a dual set-up behind the grill. Any recommendations on horns? I know the Hella Supertones are pretty stout. Thanks!
  8. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I need to get behind the front grill to mount something. What parts are the easiest to remove to get my hands in there? Is the panel along the top removable? Thanks

  12. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I just got my new 2015 Soul on Tuesday and today I noticed what looked like a small piece of the grill out of place. On further inspection, I realized it was a cover popping out of a quarter sized hole. Anyone know what it is? Its not identified in the manual that I could find.

    Anyone replaced the ugly grill on the 2015 with an aftermarket one? The giant plastic grill is kind of ugly. But it sounds like you have to remove the bumper fascia to install an aftermarket one. Thoughts?

    Does anyone have a SSD upper grill overlay for the 2010-11 Souls? Tired of the chrome surround and don't have the time to pull the bumper, pull the stock grill and paint the chrome. I'll take either the red or the black overlay, new, used, with adhesive tape or without. :) Please post here...

    There is a thing that looks like a straw stuck in my vent. I was using an air duster to clean the vent and it fell inside. How do I get the vent cover off to get it out? Without breaking anything.
