As the title says i was curious if an kia sophia bumper /grill would fit on an aspire? ... A little background to this thought, i got a 1994 aspire with a cracked bumper i also got a 1996 parts car which has the redesigned grill & headlights so i was gonna swap the 96 front to the 94 but i passed a early 2000's kia sophia in a junk yard and the front had a striking resemblance to the 96 aspire and being how aspire and kia are related i was thinking that the front would be an almost direct fit on the aspire. Has anyone else tried or done this? If it would work i think it would look decent and be just a little diffrent others bein it says kia... Thanks!

Well originally, Avellas, aspires and festiva gen2's were manufactured by kia and
rebadged before export so technically by all rights should fit. Of course no bumper
is a direct fit without some modifications. All I can say is take a few pics, overlay the
sophia over the spire and then do some cutting and fitting until it fits just right.
Other than that, all I can really say is good luck and share some pix when she's all
