Ditto the throttle respsonse, mine is MY'15. I think this has more to do w/ the transmission programming, and/or perhaps the learning pattern in the throttle mapping. I'm usually gentle with the...

This is normal. Driver side head lamp aims slightly lower than passenger side. I've had a few cars w/ HID (and now this Kia w/ LED) headlamps that have autoleveling feature. They all do that.

I looked around and cannot see any SD cover for my MY'15 like what Intender posted for MY'16.
