So looks like I probably wont be buying my soul for a while.. no one can seem to find a Silver one without the moonroof option installed....

*sigh*

the BUKI SOL License plates will look pretty stupid on my Altima...

I am normally not a sunroof/moonroof person, but I do like the one in the Soul. Are you concerned about headroom, or just don't like it in general?

Ultimately it should be Silver.. I can find a Plus without a sunroof but not a Sport...

I want to do this:



The plus would work, but the black/red interior goes much better with my plans.. but I may get stuck with the plus and the red interior lighting accessory...

And yes, its a headroom thing for me.. I only have enough headroom if I slide the sunroof cover back and can slightly tilt my head to the right.. perils of having short legs and a long torso...

Patience!! :) I can understand your pain though. We had to hunt a long time for a sport that came in white around here. My wife likes a sunroof so that was added bonus but I really haven't seen many withour sunroofs....especially sports!!

I guess I'm lucky 'cause I wanted a sunroof. The interior shade is always open here! But I do understand your frustration. Good Luck on finding your Soul!

Man, you must be insanely tall. I'm six foot and I have plenty of head room.
How long are your legs? Thats my problem.. my legs are sghort (29 inch inseam).. I have to but big and tall for all my shirts or they are too short.. if I was evenly proportioned (even just a 32" inseam) I'd be fine

Spoke to a dealer today.. he searched the Nationwide inventory and couldnt find any hint that such a car exists in the states...

I sent a complaint on the Kia web page yesterday and they called today saying a vehicle location specialist will be looking into it and call me..

I agree! I sent an e-mail asking about heated seats to see if they are going to be available in the USA....within 2 hours I had a CALL:eek: no e-mail a call, to say at this time they are not but they also will let marketing know that customers are requesting them...so if you want warm buns or any other goodies send it in they seem to care what their customers want......Kia will get stronger and stronger as long as they keep these business practices.:)

yep.. checked it again on Saturday.. with the seat all the way down, and with the way I position the seat back, my head is touching the roof with the Sunroof installed...

GF and I figure its probably because how close I am to the wheel because of my short legs and how straight I have the seat back...

then I test drove a plus.. wanted to do a Plus/sport comparison to see if I could live with a Plus instead.. but he just sold the last Sport manual he had..

The car locator from Kia was great, she is going to check whats on the boat heading to port and call Kia corporate iand find out if I can get one without a sunroof.. the dealership Saturday said when they go to order a sport it doesnt even give them the option to not get a sunroof in it...
