Default All Kias have projector lamps?

I recently noticed that all the newer Kias seem to have projector headlamps. No HIDs, but that's a cheap retrofit.

WTF?

I paid almost $30,000 for a new (2005 )Honda Odyssey and it doesn't have projectors. I don't think any of the new 2007 Hondas even projectors.

I'm kinda pissed that KIAs get projectors but I don't. :(

i was thinking the same thing. lol.

My '07 CR-V has regular reflector housing headlights.......and they SUCK. That is my least favorite thing about that car. I think my miata is the only car i've ever owned that has had even halfway decent headlights.

At the end of the day it's still a kia.

Have you heard the expression, "You can't buff a turd"?

I also noticied that Hyundais have projectors too.

And the other Kia thread reminded me of this.

No, mine is an older 2000 Sportage. Look like regular lamps to me.
