#29 of 53 Finding ACCESSORIES for Spectra5
Jun 20, 2007 (4:38 am)
Anybody have any clue on finding window visors? I have been searching the net and cannot find any that are specifically for the Spectra5. Are the regular Spectra windows the same as the 5's? I bought my 2007 Spectra5 a week ago and am wanting to customize a bit. Getting ready to tint the windows as well. Thanks for any ideas replied.
#30 of 53 Upgrade!
Aug 04, 2007 (10:24 pm)
OK, 31k miles later and I couldn't resist doing some work on my Spec5. I started with tinted windows and de-badging a-la red00lght's car. Then I removed the stock ground effects and installed KIA's tuner body kit with cat-back exhaust. I liked the results so much I just kept going... Cold-air induction, larger throttle body, headers, straight through pipes to the center exiting cat-back dual exhaust. Replaced the mags and tires with 18" TSW mags and Hankook performance rubber. Chucked the stock speakers and installed an Alpine head. Replaced the black gauge faces with silver and installed a carbon fibre interior trim kit. Very happy with the results so far. Check her out, pictures on my profile. Thanks to all for the inspiration!

Take medium size screwdriver and insert it between the bezel and the dash on the right side where the vinyl upper dash meets the plastic lower dash. Pry out gently. It will come about a half inch out. Use your fingers and go all around the bezel. It's a little stiff but will come out. The bezel is just a snap in component. Next you have to unplug all the electronics and controls to get thing totally out. Go to StreetKiaz website and you will find many How To's on mods for your car. I wrote a lot of them.
#34 of 53 Probably picking one up
Nov 11, 2007 (2:58 pm)
I'm probably going to pick one of these up at a local dealer. its an 05 spec5 with about 34k miles on it.
I've been looking everywhere, but I'm not sure what a nice site is for some modifications. I'm going to start small, cold air, possible body kit if they have it. and also, I'd like to see if they have an auxiliary hookup for the sound system, so I can plug in my zune.
#35 of 53 Correct name of headlight lens?
Dec 03, 2007 (8:26 pm)
My son had a parking lot mishap and the plastic headlight lens was broken on our 2001 Spectra. What is the proper name of that part? I can't seem to locate replacements on any of the auto part websites. Any tips on replacement or difficulty?

Never mind, forum people. I realize now that it is part of the headlight housing assembly.
