    Here is the gear shift K5 sticker mod. You have to get it centered just right, but mine's on there good. This is a REAL nice interior touch. Its red BTW the flash makes it look a little orange. From eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/191001721363...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    Some K5 center caps on my Goodyears! Nice touch to break up the silver. I paid extra to ensure I got OEM to make sure they fit. eBay : http://www.ebay.com/itm/281264429662...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    Next I put on some rear chrome garnish. Simple peel and stick. I like how this looks on the Sonata and several other cars and I think Its on mine to stay.

    Some aluminum foot pedals are a must! The dead pedal is a simple screw in type going right into the plastic flooring, while you have to wrestle with the brake pedal to remove the old and put new in its place. The gas pedal just slides down over the top of stock and its an easy fit. I love how these feel and look, HUGE interior improvement. eBay again: At Fuel Brake Foot Rest Footrest Pedals Fit for Kia K5 | eBay
