Advice and buying tips please. 1.7 3 SatNav. I anticipate purchasing some accessories in the coming weeks and, although I can obviously purchase genuine Kia parts, these may not necessarily be the best quality / value for money. I would therefore appreciate any advice / guidance based on practical experience of roof bars - Thule/Kia ? Carpet Mats ""“ best value/fit and Mud Flaps Front & Rear ""“ a sound investment? Worth fitting even though wheel arches are plastic? Many Thanks.

Mud flaps off fleabay for £13.99 for the set and they fit perfectly. Not sure what matters other than the Kia ones are available.

I bought some Kia sportage car mats from Kia and for around £50 think they;re great value and fit really well - it's just annoying that they don't provide as standard as you'll be mad not fitting some.

Purchased sportage mats - genuine Kia stuff for £25 from Grantham dealer
Question - should a KX3 come with privacy glass?? If so - where are the windows tinted, factory or dealer?? Mine are still clear

If you look carefully, the rear windows are darker than the front... but it is subtle!

Personally, I don't mind because it means that you can actually see out of the back when reversing in the dark.

Thanks Techno - right you are. Was comparing it with the pimp mobile that is the focus zetec S, who's windows are almost black and agree with being able to see out of back when reversing
