Silly simple additions from me.

When i first got the car I joined a forum and had these made up - sorry admin & mods
Didn't venture to this site until later



I then removed the Kia badge and added my own - nickname/username - now gone and original badge refitted due to stick at work!!!
ProCeed badge added a few weeks later after debadging the rear.

Wind deflectors added to stop the brats in the back getting the brunt of the wind in the summer.
Car lowered 30mm on Kia Eilbachs




I then removed and painted the chrome grille strips after toying with both being red, one red one black !!

I purchased some posh matts but didn't like the state of them on family journeys so have some cheapy ones protecting them, red trim of course :)



Next - alloys, and cut down rally flaps to protect my already chipped paintwork!!!
(oh - and I had my calipers painted a while back too)

So that's it I think, did have a bee sting aerial but the reception was poo.
The boot full of cleaning kit and I've a sad amount of photos of it - sorry it's not expensive mods but it's a head turner around my neck of the woods

Dont look to bad that and you dont see many modified Kia's running around ( I have been modding cars for years). the only thing I would do is fit bigger alloys with a lower profile tyre. Another thing that would luke cool is maybe adding the front lip from a seat Leon Cupra.

Agree - the sporty bumper for the X-Ceed looks great but a Lip/splitter would finish off the front.
Tempted with bigger alloys but I was running 225/35/18's on my Vectra. On these Norfolk roads and the milage I do (100 round trip to work!!) I'd need a neck brace - my ARB's need replacing as it is!!!

Steve - a few pictures from my dealers - the White one is the one that tempted me into the showroom
A fraction over my budget otherwise it would have been mine :/





Sorry these are not Pros - would like to know if the front bumpers fit the Pros

They look cool. Which front apron is that?

I love modding cars and over the last 10 years I must of spent 20 grand or so on mods, thats one reason I bought a Kia to try and stop me LOL.

Open bonnet, above grille there's a cover which comes of after removing a few plastic centre pinned rivit thingys !!!
I used a dumpy screwdriver - each strip is screwed in at each end, then prised out -
I tried sanding and spraying them first, at the moment they're black hammerite lol

Right - `see what the hubby thinks` - your female I`m guessing!
You love the Alloys on the XCeed

You used the phrase `the tits` when describing them

You own a Pro

...and have a cool user name which I wish I`d thought of.



I`m gonna have to speak to my wife !!!!!!

I`m not sure how they`re made up, basically its just a sticker pack - after market alloys and the sports kit (bumpers and skirt)
The white one was a 90bhp 1.6 Crdi, simple interior, just a load of add ons and a bigger price tag.

I`m unsure if it`s a specific Ceed model...don`t think it is. I`d imagine if you were to ask the dealers for an XCeed most would give you a funny look.

Yes, female

'the tits' I think is actually hubby's influence, he always says it
We own a white pro, 4 spec, so I really do think those alloys would look awesome
And I am very proud of my username

...but what do u need2 talk 2 your wife about??? Lol
