Congratulations and welcome to the forum. What are the details of your new Cadenza? What was your other Kia?
Went with Aurora Black Pearl / black interior with nappa trim... I just posted a really long update with a few pictures - its still stock, haven't touched anything but want to add some better bulbs for the fog lights, something so the lighting is same as headlights... not sure what to get, and what else I may tweak, just hard to do too much because its such a nicely put together vehicle all ready and maxed out since its the limited package.Congrats on getting your new Cadenza.
Which color did you end up going with?
Great community of members here, if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
1.I'm sure you will hear about software updates here on the forum but I suspect you will get a notice. I bought a CPO 2014 and bought the latest update right away. Some updates are maps only while others include software changes.<Snip>
Questions I have are:
1.) how do I know when / where to get software updates for the entertainment system / UVO? (Im a programmer / software developer so I would love to see it 'do' / offer more and have more features than it currently does, but Im still happy, generally speaking. (attached is an image of the software Im running currently)
2.) I think I have the stock hankook tires but would love to know what owners think is a good alternative to the stock ones.
3.) are there any known issues / problems I should look out for? Im about 2000 miles in with it so far, very very happy with the purchase though and thinking about doing a light tint on the rear windows but don't want to mess with an already great looking vehicle.
4.) Is it just me or do you have to really work to get a 'sporty' feel with the paddle shifters / sport mode -- it will respond and really do some nice stuff, but it seems (and probably makes sense) that it tried hard to be soft and easy going but if you really work it, it'll show it has some power... I just usually drop down two gears to get past the old slow cars then shift back up and slow it down before I get a speeding ticket!
Great forum, looking forward to being an active member.
Oh very cool, nice color.Went with Aurora Black Pearl / black interior with nappa trim...

We can definitely help you out with upgrading your fog lights to match the headlights. You should check out our stage 2 CREE Fog Lights we sell on our site below.
CREE Stage 2 80 Watt Fog Light Bulbs - K5 Optima Store
Also let us know if you have any other questions before ordering.
You are very welcome. Absolutely not there will be no impact on battery life as these use less electrical current than the factory halogen / incandescent lighting used for the fog light bulbs on the cadenza. We highly recommend going with the stage 2 80 watt bulbs as the stage 1 20 watt bulbs will soon be discontinued. Most of our customers do not prefer the color for brightness in terms of light output of the stage 1 bulbs.Thanks, quick question, any significant impact on battery life if I run the 80watt over the 20watt... they look so good on the pictures that Im pretty sure I'd run them ALL THE TIME - even though I laugh when I see people run theirs 24/7 -- looks stupid when they have LED headlights and weird looking OEM fogs.
