  1. Door edge protection

    Soul Accessories (Gen 3)
    My last car had door edges that were all torn up by family members opening doors into walls. On this car I wanted to avoid that, but places were asking 20-50 bucks a door to add the clean 3m vinyl. So, I thought I'd try my hand at installing it and bought a roll of 3m door edge guard film...
  2. Paranoid NYC street-parker looking for help!

    New Member Introductions
    Hi guys! I just bought a 2018 plus and though he was a rental car and therefore already has more scratches than I’d like, I’m still looking to prevent further damage as much as possible (and intend to work on filling the current ones over time). About half of the time (I share an indoor garage...
  3. Kia Distinction Vehicle Protection Plan - worth it? Experiences with claims?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Picked up my new Plus today, she's a beauty in Clear White, and her name is Lilith. When the dealer starts to talk about extended warranty, I usually just wave my hand and tell them to save their breath, but today I decided to hear them out. Has anyone purchased the Kia Vehicle Protection...
  4. Front End protection for 2017 Soul

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    Hello, I am wondering if there is a product available that will help to protect the front end of my 2017 Soul. I have attached a picture and the area I'm trying to protect is outlined in blue. I had thought something like a clear car bra would work, but I can't find one for a Kia Soul. Has...
  5. Interior Door Trim Panel Protection

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    Hello, I was wondering if there is some kind of protection available for the Interior Door Trim Panel. I have a 2017 Soul. When I get in and out of the car, my left foot always hits/rubs the bottom portion of the Interior Door Trim Panel, which in turn starts to leave a "scuff mark" on the...
  6. Kia carpeted cargo liner with seat back protection and pets? or Coverking seat cover?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    My dogs ride in the back of my Soul with the seats folded down but the fabric on the seat backs suck, they trap dog hair bigtime. I'm thinking about buying a Kia carpeted cargo liner with seat back protection to hopefully solve this issue but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with...

    When upgrading our headlights with expensive aftermarket set, we really hope that it will last for a long time. But as any other product, it requires careful handling and protection. WeatherTech has a resolution for you! Their LampGuard Headlight Covers secure your headlamps, fog lamps, turn...
  8. Add a constant on power socket with fuse and battery drain protection

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I have a dual channel dash camera installed in my 2008 Rondo that has a constant on power port in the cargo area. When I was about to install the same dual channel camera on my 2015 Soul, I found none of the power port is constant on which is essential for parking mode recording. On the other...
  9. For your protection - cargo area

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    This is a tease...and a first step to protecting my cargo area. I have had experience with new car "carpet" and dirt, sand and junk love to dwell for eternity in its very fibers. So, this morning I took a hint from a forum member and visited Jo-Ann Fabrics. I bought some Black Vinyl on the...
  10. 2014 front protection?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Are there any pros or cons to having a deflector or a hood bra? Any thoughts about the plastic applique or the spray can as an alternative to hood protection? Thanks
  11. Radiator Protection

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Today I performed my formerly-standard radiator-protection process. Though Elwood has but 5700 miles, there are already a few dings in the radiator, likely from stone or hard bug hits at speed. In the Soul it's pretty simple, though not all cars have such easy access. Parts: Aluminum screen...
  12. Paint Protection

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    ama ex-soul owner (yippee) but am posting a video about "simoniz glass coat" that some kia dealers may have to protect your paint ... don't need to ever wax the car and can just rinse car rather than wash .....company has been around for quite some time - product comes with a 7 year warranty...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)

    Want a full kit done, but don't want to pay the outrageous price thru the dealer. Any suggestions? Want it done right.
  17. Paint protection film?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Has anyone tried the paint protection film from 3M or the InvisiMask paint protection film? I'm looking into getting one as I'm getting a Soul very soon and want to protect it from chipping. If you have tried it, is it hard to install? And, does it actually protect it? Thanks!:D
  18. Finally got the film protection applied....

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Finally got the film protection applied on my Tempest (just in time too - gritters out in force and snowing later the same day!!!). Had a company called Paintsheild (in Peterborough, UK) do it (it took them 2 days), and they did a really fabulous job. Apparently nobody on their worldwide...
  19. Clear Flim/Bra Protection

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I couldn't find the thread that I saw before..so sorry for making a duplicate. I know that a few of you have bought the clear bra protection through ebay (nusolis) and seem to be happy with that product. I was wondering if anyone has found the clear bra available for the 2011 Soul Plus? Through...
