    When in doubt, black it out.

    Blayde, I feel like we are having the same exact problem but I have not tried using french fry finger oil on them to see if it is outside or inside the trim.

    Update on my progress - I called the Stinger Hotline, got a guy named Edward and sent him some photos. He is supposed to be following up with Kia of Portland but I haven't heard back in weeks. Going to call at some time this week but I am busy.

    Even if the dealer were just around the corner they would be a pain in the keister for something like this. With nothing to lose, I'd try different things as they occurred to me. French fries oil! :laugh: That's a good one. Hey, if it looks better for a day or two, something else in that direction might work longer. Is dark chrome wrap available? That would be my solution. A whole lot less costly than bothering Kia/the dealer for a replacement trim piece.

    Cant be combined cleaning products for me since I'm a "lazy cleaner". Keep the car clean, wash often but I just use Adam's car shampoo and.....that's it. (And I use it on the G35 and the Pacifica and the Odyssey as well and, no issues on them)

    Lol, I am even more "lazy" than that: hot, soft water and lots of terrycloth towels, dry off with microfiber. I have been known to wash my car six times in nine days (that's the frequency record so far:p). Keep washing it every time it gets rained on; and once a week otherwise; I seldom go longer than that.

    I ended up just wrapping mine because people have the issue even after replacements, wrap1.jpg
