Love the ceed sw2 dont love the support not received by kia when it comes to the Franchise Approved Used Cars. Bought our ceed in Scotland with only 13800 miles. kia touts kia Approved Used cars are hand-picked according to stringent requirements. All are less than 18 months old and have covered less than 18000 miles. So rest assured your kia Approved Used car is still in prime condition. Every kia
quarter plus front bumper and that sub frame of course. Main thing is nobody was injured at all the old guy admitted liability and gave me a written statement to that effect they even stayed with me at the pub awaiting the tow truck and gave me a lift home which was nice. So Ill keep you posted on the details once I hear from body shop or insurance co. But for the moment I dont have a beautiful ceed
BIGGEST problem with ceed brakes and other makes is that annual servicing does not extend to annual strip down and proper clean of calipers. maybe every 3 years. Consequently crud and rust builds up in the pad guides and restricts the proper movement of the brake components leading to uneven wear in the pads. Not inherently dangerous but does lead to premature wear. So to maintain your brakes each

Hoods are different. If you mean the
Amdis If it is any consolation to you. When I bought my ceed SW 3 years ago that light in ther middle of the roof irritated the hell out of me for the first few weeks. And do you know I had completely forgotten about it until I read your thread. I went and sat in the car and the light didnt bother me in the least. The reason it is there is so that it lights up the whole interior not just the front.

Hello everybody. An update Last year the car has received a few gadgets - Multimedia Unit Kenwood dnx 5240bt - 17 LCD display only for exhibitions - LED undercar just for fun and shows. 2 months ago the car went into a rebuilding process. It was a hard and meticulous process but the finished result was as expected. I try to keep the original lines with some aggressive accents. Interior -Full cross-leather (seat elements of the board dome (roof) armrest and door panels). -the front seats were modified -finally have integrated speakers in door panels -carbon look central console Exterior -front bumper rear bumper completely changed -wheels were painted matte white -car-went down by 15 mm in total - 45mm. (Suspension only) -reconfigure the exhaust on the back to fit the boxes in the new rear bumper. Im working on some small things that I want to keep secret until completion so that are some future plans. Here are some pictures httpspicasaweb.google.com1159736...aProceedTuning Best regards Andy
I did notice that you left an extension bar with a universal joint and a small socket in the engine bay very close to the battery. I know one terminal is normally covered up but its something you need to be very careful about as a direct short of something like that tool across the battery terminals could cause a nasty accident. The last time I saw my car it looked just like yours but not because I am fitting Angel Eyes its having a complete new front and wing fitted after someone ran into it.

Correponding tyre life on the rear would be at least 60000km. Including a spare in the rotation I expect to get 50000km from the set. Most people would
Dave I was fitting my towbar (estate) and the reason was to identify the wiring cables. I though I may get access to the loom below the lights but its not possible as the there is no room for connections. The cluster just pops out it is held in place with snap on metal fixings just have to pull hard. To do all the wiring is a major pain as you have to dismantle most of the interior boot trim I placed

Thanks as always for all the replies. So is the general consensus to swap them round before the fronts are too worn Im still surprised they are wearing as quick as they are. Its not as if I drive like a complete pillock or run them over or under inflated they are wearing evenly. The stock continentals on the last car I had lasted 16000 before they were Kojaks.

Oh how I wish Id not found that 15 second hold setup thing. My stereo did sound just fine but its all changed now sounds flat mid range bass overload & scratchy treble ( not in a good way). The Loudness and audio settings were on but cycling onoff by clicking right right right (or left left left) seemed to change the audio profile to a different setting every time. This morning I thought it had reset
That is not a good idea. If all u want to spend is 110 quid then buy a 110 quid set of speakers for the front doors. Those will give you better bass than those so called subwoofers that you are considering. And as a bonus much better highs which will improve the overall sound quality by a lot. The factory speakers while not complete garbage if you have the separate tweeters in the mirror housing are
Well I am trying to get one wheel done a day and the nearside front has no CV joint damage whatsoever... no crack in the case no spilt guts so its possibly a start of the bearing going out... Wiggled the wheel and rotated it other than a bit of grind against the brake pad (wouldnt have expected it to be after 31700 miles) there was no play in the wheels movement so no reason to believe the bearing
Checked the tyre pressures driving it in the middle of the road on the wrong side of the road & on completely flat car parks & it still pulls to the right. Have use of 2 cars & take whatevers the front in the drive have no problems with other car driving on the same roads.

Hi Ace Demon Thanks for your comments. My car is 4 years old now and they may well of done the brake fluid on other occasions but this time made more of a noticable difference which brought my attention to it - when questioned the
Today the AlloyGators saved one of my wheels. I was turning right on two lane roundabout when the person in the left lane beside me went straight across ignoring the lanes cut me up and effectively push me into the roundabout island. If I didnt move my side door and front wing would have been swiped. Anyway my rear alloy hit the curb quite severely and hard enough to give the rear end quite a bump
