Hi Everyone,

I'm from Manila, Philippines. I just want to share my '11 1.6 LX A/T Kia Soul. There aren't a lot of Souls on the road but starting to pick up since Kia slashed prices by about 200K pesos. That's about 4K USD. :)









Rims are Lenso PD08 18x8 ET45 in White. Tires are Federal 595 235/40 R18. I have nitrogen in them and the ride has improved significantly compared to stock.

Thinking of getting the following:

a. Custom Leather Seatcovers
b. Shark Racing Spoiler
c. Strutbar

And that's about it.

Cheers! :)

@shadowSoul: thanks. mabuhay ang noypi! slam your ride as well.
@djsncman: thanks. that's all i have so far.
@SoulInKorea: the number of souls here in Manila are increasing, we now have custom bodykits available! not my taste though since i like OEM better. here's the link Kia | Atoy Customs

i just ordered the following from korea:

1. OEM bodykits
2. Spoiler
3. Meccatune lowering springs
4. Eyelids
5. OEM Pedals
6. Tuon Badge

they said shipping is 3-4 weeks :(

interesting link. I like some of the ideas on the Titanium one.... the shaved bonnet and nose dont fully work well - but the bumper side inlets work nicely.

galing talaga ng PINOY when it comes to exterior mods. i love ATOY kit for the SOUL... love the model car as well... sleek and cool. if only im at home with my SOUL, but by the look of 'em they aint cheap. do you have any idea how much ATOY would sell these kits? di me kakain just to get 'em LOL!

meccatune lowering springs? how much & how low would they be on a SOUL? i ordered B&G and they make 1.6" both front & rear.

3-4 weeks? dude thats a lot of waiting..hehehe..

MABUHAY ang mga slammed SOUL ng mga PINOYs!!

Manila Soul Work In Progress

Final shot before picking up the goodies...



And the items. Are they worth they wait? :think hopefully they are!!!

pedals



they are not OEM. they are some aftermarket korean brand. it's good though since has the foot rest included. hopefully they fit perfectly.

sideskirts



pure OEM goodness!

rear kit



i'm not sure of this is the rear. can anyone confirm this is OEM?

front kit



i'm not sure of this is the front. as above, can anyone confirm this is OEM?

lowering springs



i thought i was going to get meccatunes but i'm getting another korean brand. i haven't heard of them. any feedback on these?

hi pre! at last the parts arrived huh! re the springs, ive seen 'em on koreanautoimports.com..(is it where u get all the parts from?). i was eyeing on 'em before i decided to get B&G. the SOUL they posted on the site looks really low with a minimal gap from the fender but the specs said only around an inch drop, B&G has 1.6" so i bought 'em instead but...i think my SOUL is still a bit high imo.

for the kits naman, is it really that expensive if you have ATOY make some for you than ordering OL? cant seem to like the SOUL's OEM kits but again thats just me...

the pedals are not bad. mine came with a foot rest too but i couldnt put it coz it requires drilling and the part where u put the foot rest on hasnt got that much hard surface on the bottom. 'ope u wouldnt have a problem with that.

post pics if you have 'em installed....cheers!
