Pimped out Kia Rio (interview)

1. How long have you owned your ride?
I’ve owned it for 3 years.

2. Honestly, what was your intention when you bought your car?
For transportation, travel to and from work for me and my wife also for groceries shopping and family outing day.

3. In a few words, describe the style of your pimped Kia Rio.
To me my Rio is my reflection, aggressive, sporty yet nice and tenderly loving family  man.

4. What do you like the most about your white Kia Rio 5-door hatchback?
Actually, I bought my Kia mostly because it was cheaper than other makes and models.

I liked the shape of the car, the space for all passengers, the interior and on top of that the head unit which can play DVD. And on top of that i ever squeeze 6 of my friend in the Rio.

5. Is there anything you don’t like about it?
Currently, I got nothing that I would dislike about this Rio.

6. What is it that makes your pimped out Rio look unique?
The Kia Rio bodykit that I installed. It’s a mix and match by BMW, Honda and Hyundai.

7. What Rio accessories have you installed so far?

Accessories that I put on my Kia Rio are:

  • Simota open pod filter
  • A breather filter
  • Raizin VS
  • Power Pass
  • Fiamm hornVoltage and Vacuum gauges
  • A 6.5″ monitor
  • 7″ roof monitor and ICE
  • rear spoiler for Kia Rio

8. Do you have any future modification plans?

Maybe, I will change the white colour of the car and install the crack pulley, a better horn and cold air intake.

9. Who helped to modify your tide?
I did most of it on my on except some that i need help from friends.

10. How would you pimp your Kia Rio if you had no limits?
I would install 17-inch rims with low profile tyres, color the interior to all black and upgrade the bodykit.

11. What do people say about your vehicle?
They like the Rio bodykit. They say it looks sporty and aggressive.

12. What would you advise to Kia owners who might be looking to customize their cars in future?
Research the internet to find some cool tuning ideas. Try to get good deals on the aftermarket parts and accessories. And last, make sure the workmanship is good and reliable.


  1. Greg says:

    Wow! Looking good Jackzz! That is definately a great looking, aggressive car no doubt! A++!!

  2. himi says:

    This rio has an awesome bodykit. I also like the color of his rio. White color is very rare on Rios here in Slovenia. Don’t know about the USA…

  3. Greg says:

    In our area Kias in general are popular. Either white or blue is the most popular here. But, they have the black body pieces, unlike this one. I really like what he’s done with it.

  4. David says:

    very nice Rio check out KFXperformance.com for performance upgrades.

    i would agree with you about the larger rims.

  5. Mambo says:

    Yeah he really needs bigger rims otherwise a very tastefully kitted RIO. Once he slaps on those 17″ he’s ride will be PIMPED!

  9. wen says:

Kia rio in our country is not very popular..they like Toyota, Honda …so we are hard to find Rio accessories & bodykits to upgrade my Rio. your Rio really great looking. could you tel me you upgrade the Rim 15″ to 17″ , How about your fuel?? will waste more fuel?

  10. chowder says:

  12. foraiza says:

    Hi Jackzz. Nice one. im also a proud owner of Kia Rio back in Sarawak. Actually u can put some 17″ on your rio as what i did with my blue rio. Fabulous. as a matter of fact it handles better and doesnt effect the mileage.

  13. HyundaiSmoke says:

    I love how KIA Rios are so controversial.

  14. olivier says:

  18. ritzqis says:

  19. Justin says:

    Hey man, nice job on the Rio5. I have an 08 Rio but i can’t find a body kit for it anywhere. Where did you get yours?

  20. Greg says:

    @ Justin
    Try koreanautoimports’dot’com. They have a lot of body kits and other accessories.

  21. Dathaniel says:

    Hey Jackzz,

    I have the same make and model. Could you recommend a few places to look for bodykits as I have been looking with no success.

    Hope you still have them!


  22. callum says:

    Hey i just got a kia rio and i really want to put a body kit which looks the same as this one because its crazy if it was possible to tell me what parts you put on it

  23. Josh says:

    I love the look. I recently purchased a 2007 Kia Rio and would like to customize with the least expense possible. One of the attributes I really like, among others, is the running light covers you have up front. I’m curious as to where I can find some for myself at a good price. No luck in the search so far. Thank you!
