A sat nav that works as good as a 50 quid one from halfords, an operating traffic information system, leather seats that dont tear, a bluetooth that pairs up with more than half a dozen phones, voice control that recognises the english language, alloy wheels that dont corrode when the car is used between October and March, a dash light dimmer...........once you have those start worrying about bling

Hey Ash -
bad day at the office??

Quadrift, I
got the KIA Ice & sun screen, for frost & sun protection fits nice and
does the job very well.

Also got the
boot liner which I found you need when you put the "Ice & sun screen"
covered in frost in the boot.

Had the side
steps fitted just to enhance the styling.

As for the
test drive, I compared the KIA with other comparable cars (SUV's). But in the
end it was value for money & styling that did for me, or bang for bucks as
the spams would say.

Oh and a 7
year warranty that also covers things like corroding wheels

a test drive is about the car not extras you can haggle with the dealer for them when you come to purchase itif you do, does it drive better than what you have, will it do what you want it to do.
read auto express they had one on loan for 12 months and did 32k miles and gave it a good review.

in my opinion the skid plates are a wast of a good chunk of money as i think they are plastic andhardly visible, it would be a different mater had they been alloyand actually protected anything. however the side steps on the other hand make a big visual difference and are useful if only to wash the roof.

Test drive - lucky you. Last time I tried to get a test drive the dealer told me that "it was out all week".
That's OK - he won't be getting my money....... it's looking like Autoebid in the near future.

Yes, they are just plastic and only for visual looks, but they do look nice
