I was just curious if anyone purchased, or had the option to purchase, any of thr kinetic motorsport forte accessories at the dealership. I start my kia sales job soon but can't find any sort of catalog online and I'm quite curious to know what's on offer. Obviously when I start the gig they'll run me through all that stuff but I was hoping the brothers and sisters here had some input. If you DO have any experience with thr kinetic parts how did it go down at the dealer? Did they try to sell you stuff or did you want to buy it with no mention from the staff at thr dealership or what? I'd like to know what the thoughts aret on the parts themselves and, as a soon to be kia salesman, what your experience was like getting them

im not sure where you see a specific set of parts that are being sold... i see a form that you can fill out to try and get their parts at your dealer...

but from just the pictures they show, it looks maybe like just wheels, stickers and maybe a "sporty" sounding muffler?

Honestly IMO there nothing special or to fuss about. Everything they offer is basically oem spec replacement accessories. We offer some of there wheels and grilles and have them on display. But we don't really sell many. The only thing we use them for is to stock up a vehicle we choose with a whole bunch of the accessories to make it sell faster.
What is it that you are looking for ?

Really I was just looking for a catalogue to see what kinetic is selling. Their racers in scca Pirelli world challenge are killing it and I was wondering about the flow through from track to dealer. The dealerships in north san Diego where I am advertise the parts but I have no clue what they offer. I figured they would sell wheels, intake, exhaust but considered the ppossibility of maybe even suspension items or tunes (like volvo's north star) or even turbo components. Does anyone knowif they have more support for the optima since it races in a higher class?

From what I understand the company that sells he parts is totally separate from the racing team
Even further more to get a hold of racing team is not easy. The guys that answer the phones are the guys that race
There are no parts sold as far as engine components besides exhaust
I have been trying to get a deal through our discount for the NGK racing plugs for a while and it's impossible to get a hold of them
I don't want to pay list so I'm trying to see if we get a discount. From what I understand we can't

I got an oil cap and a badge.. I have driven the optima with the exhaust.. and it sounds better than stock but you have a lot of options for that car.. I have the hat on order as well as a polo.. most parts for the forte.. are not performance parts.. not for our generation... but I like my oil cap so far..
