Mercedes has Brabus, BMW has Dinan, and now Kia has its "Executive" series of topline vehicles designed to make an ordinary Amanti sedan or Sorento compact SUV stand out with an array of aftermarket tuning products. There's a whole lot of exterior restyling available, like new sportier bumpers, 19-inch wheels and slightly lowered suspensions. Interiors get upgraded big time as well, with leather and suede seating surfaces, aluminum kick plates, a serious sound system and wood grain for days. The work is accomplished by a subsidiary of the aforementioned Brabus, called Bottrop, which seemingly no one has ever heard of. The drawback to this Executive setup is the ridiculous Brabus-esque $7,000+ price. For that kind of change, you can pretty much buy another Kia.
