Just in case anyone is interested in this kind of stuff my sporty has just been professionally detailed by Pride & Performance in Leyland Lancs.
It's had a gyeon ceramic coating applied to all exterior surfaces and the alloys too which are taken of the car to do the backs.
The gyeon coating will last for 24months plus easily by using there products to wash it with no polishing required.
Nick has done a fantastic job as he always does this the third car he's done for me and the finish is outstanding.

Very nice.
How much did it cost?

Oh and you might want to block out the number plate. :)

Good idea oops!

The whole detail cost £350 and took 2.5 days to complete... Which all in all I think is very reasonable for the amount of work involved and the results..

Just joined the forum, we took delivery of our dark penta metal 4 1.6t-gdi dct last week, but had been considering a GT-Line S, yours looks great in lunar silver.

You mention no spare wheel, I just checked this morning and notice ours doesnt have one either. Do you know why? The brochures say it should have one...

You will find that while this years brochures and specification sheets show all the petrol models with a spare wheel kit, the specifications on the web site and click the down chevron (not the Download Specifications link) on the 'Storage, Versatility & Interior Lighting' section show a Tyre Mobility Kit on all Sportage variants. Kia Customer Services have already been asked about this and it has been confirmed, although no reason was given.
Kia's get out, like all manufacturers, is the clause in the small print that states 'specifications can change'.

Thanks for the info - disappointing then. While hopefully never required it's good peace of mind, particularly as our toddler is usually in the car and I wouldn't want to be stranded too long. In that case, an Ebay hunt is required.

Be aware you will need a complete spare wheel kit as there is no jack supplied. There are a number of sites supply those space saver spare wheel kits.

I no longer own a Sportage but after taking delivery of my Honda HRV in January, I purchased an official Honda space saver wheel for £160, there was space for it where the spare used to be. Presumably there would be room for one in a petrol Sportage? I got it for a discounted price on the Honda HRV forum. Like you I hate the idea of a tyre repair kit!

Hi
Collected my 1.6 gdi gt line s dct yesterday so it's early days getting used to the dct but I'm sure I will learn to love it & will keep you all posted.
First impressions... Love the Lunar Silver and disappointed no spare wheel!!  View attachment 6297 View attachment 6294 View attachment 6296
Nice colour, mine has a spare wheel, but was reg in November 18, think they have changed the spec (typically). Look at this. Space Saver Spare Wheel and Tool Kit
Bit pricey tho
