New to Kia here. I've always been a huge Subaru guy, still am, but have really taken a liking to these turbo Fortes.
Bought new in February, have about 9,000 miles on her as of right now. I seem to be getting about 30-34 mpg in my area. Highway trips are usually around 27. Mine is a loaded SX with a manual.
I've done a few tasteful mods here and there. Nothing engine wise, just little exterior things. The Rally Armor flaps is a nice addition! If you all are thinking about it then you should do it! I left mine a little high just because I need the ground clearance where I live and I would cringe if I could hear any scraping.
As part of that I was wanting to do a front license plate delete. But this damn plate holder is going to leave 4 screw holes in the carbon fiber trim piece. What have you all done with these 4 holes? Or does anyone have a hook up on a part number for the piece so I can just buy a new one?

Nice looking car, as for plugging the holes you can use any standard plug like this: buy a few because I'm not sure how long they'll stay in unless you secure them somehow:
or perhaps a rubber grommet:
