there is a difference.
i'm not sure what kind of speakers the kia has but the aftermarket stereo makes it all sound brighter.

a lot like how my XD changed overall when i installed the same stereo in my car.

removing that dash section on the Rio 5 is way easier than removing the XD's dash.
its just that little section and there aren't any screws to remove/lose.


Not to sound skeptical, but I do speak from experience: It also makes it easier to steal the unit. Keep that faceplate with you, man...

PUT NEW TIRES OF THE KIA THIS PAST WEEKEND:

went from stock 195/60/15s to 205/65/15s (without any rubbing!)

looks all muscled up on 'roids:







and drives so much better now.

my GF was rear-ended in a common, heavy traffic-ed area in the Kia Rio 2 weeks ago:


she was at a complete stop too and was pushed into the car in front of her.

the rio was not as damaged as the truck that hit her (as you can see).

but that same truck also hit another truck before striking the Rio.

thnx. yeah i was rushing to leave the office as i was posting...

she's okay. hasn't complained about any pain or anything.

its totally drivable and the rear window should be getting replaced tonight.

the minor dings on the back door will have to be there for a little bit as the Rio wasn't covered for uninsured motorists.

oh yeah i didn't mention that part did i? a$$hole didn't have current insurance.

i'm already over it and the dude will be getting a bill from me.

i will be handing it to him at his court date for the 2 tickets he received the day of the collision.

So here we are over 4 years later and my truck died on my last Tuesday.

The wife got a 2016 Kia Sorento last night and the Rio5 is now all mine. Feels good to have A/C again.

Will be continuing the Rio5 saga here. Already looking into a new Pioneer Stereo with Bluetooth. smile.gif
