  1. Double DIN dash kit options

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    It looks like there are two double-DIN dash kit options on the market for the Gen 2 Soul, from Metra and Scosche, and possibly a third that several companies whitelabel. The few pictures I've seen of an installed Metra kit on the Soul look, to be honest, pretty bad, with visible gaps from the...
  2. AUX/USB replacement options

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I was wondering if there was anywhere to buy a replacement for the AUX/USB port? I replaced the head unit add they are just taking space? I basically want to replace it with a blank that has two USB F-F ports and an AUX F-F port, so I can connect it to my aftermarket headunit inside the dash.
  3. '19 Base --> ISO Apple Car Play upgrade options

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    So my '19 Base has a decent (5") touchscreen HU but I want to find something larger and add Apple Car Play. I also want to keep the stock back-up camera and XM. I've searched and found some threads for Android based units or other aftermarket units, but those were either pre-17 or losing...
  4. Replacement sub options?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I have a Kia Soul 2011 ! Sport and the factory sub blew and I'm looking for some replacement options. The size seems to be a little weird and can't seem to find anything online that would replace it. I'm not looking for anything premium just another sub that would fit in there in place of the...
  5. Subwoofer Replacement Options?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My 2011 Kia Soul ! Subwoofer blew within the last week. It was in for an oil change yesterday and had them take a look at it just to make sure and they came back and verified that it was blown. They priced me out a replacement and labor and it was just under $300. I think that’s way overpriced...
  6. Options for roof rails/racks for 2011?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I just bought a used 2011 Soul as a 3rd car to rack miles on when I'm driving all over the Southeast kayaking and MTBing. I'm needing a solid rack as there is a fair bit of drag when you have a couple kayaks on top. What options are out there? I had seen some really nice looking SSD rails...
  7. Headlight switch options

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    My Soul has a setting for automatic headlights, never had a car with such a feature and was wondering what the purpose of this setting is.. Thanks
  8. Diagnostic tool, any affordable options?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have a 2011 and of course with a 7 year old car I have minor repairs that pop up. Last year I had a P0455 code which I trouble shooted to the canister purge valve. Now a year later I have the code back and dont know if the valve went bad again or what. I replaced it yesterday as it was $30...
  9. Options for the Soul+

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    (If this is in the wrong section, Mods, please feel free to move it!) Thanks. The wife and I recently financed a 'new' 2012 Soul+. I know it has some options that a Base doesn't, but what all comes standard in a + model? The only reason I'm asking is it has some things like: interior accent...
  10. Holster mounting options.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Please, if you are anti-gun or whatever, don't waste your breath here. My last car, a 2007 Element SC, I had a holster mounted to the underside of the dash. It was perfect there, bc the dash was far enough way, I had a quick draw. But the Soul, the dash is too close and low to mount there...
  11. roof rack options

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)

  13. A/C Cleaning Kit - What are the options?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Well, I have apparently fallen victim to the musty A/C syndrome and seems I need to do an A/C flush to try and correct it. Quite pathetic IMO given my Soul is only two years old with just 5k miles on it. I have studied the TSB about the KIA "AC refresher kit" but am still left wondering a few...
  14. Phone options - where do you put it and what holders are you using?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I just bought a 2015 base 1.6l Soul. I need a solution to mount my phone inside the car that is not in the way yet is well visible. I don't like cooking my phone by suctioning it to the windshield (I'm in SoCal and its 102 today) and I am not a fan of the vent-style phone holder clips at least...
  15. Hitch options limited?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Was interested in buying a hitch for my 2012 kia soul plus. Seems class 1 is the only option I can find. I was hoping for class 3 to get a larger bike rack capacity (2 inch receiver class 3 required). Anyone find anything different?
  16. Driving Light Options and Install

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Folks: I need to take the front "grill" off the Soul to install a tow baseplate. While its off, i was thinking to put in some driving lights. I see some kits on eBay, but i am not sure what is what. Some offer the new switch on the steering column, is that a good idea? I would love to get...
  17. 2010 Air Intake Options

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I have exhausted my internet sleuthing (but someone will probably point out how I missed something on this site) so hopefully someone here can give me some insight. I am having issues finding legitimate aftermarket support for the 2010 Kia Soul 2.0. I have seen the Takeda CAI and know of the K&N...
  18. Grille Options?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Looking to see if anyone has come across some grille upgrade options to give the grille a little more style. I have an '11 and it just seems meh.
  19. Roof Rack for bikes Options for SSD

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Anyone used Thule aero crossbars and bike trays on the SSD factory style roof rails? What part number will fit the rails? Seems like the Malone crossbars that SSD sells is only for kayaks not bikes. Looking for a roof rack/fairing/fork mount bike tray that will fit these rails. Thanks for...
