Kiatprawut Saiwaeo (Thai: เกียรติประวุฒิ สายแวว, born January 24, 1986), simply known as Car (Thai: คาร์), is a Thai professional football player who plays as a Defender for Chonburi.

Kiatprawut was one of three Thai players given trials by Manchester City shortly after former Thailand Prime Minister, Thaksin Shinawatra’s takeover of the club in July 2007, prompting suggestions that the moves were made for political rather than footballing reasons. The trio signed contracts in November 2007, but did not come close to making a first team appearance, and lacked work permits due to Thailand’s low world ranking.

Consequently, Kiatprawut was sent on loan to Belgian club Club Brugge. At the end of the season Manchester City went to Thailand on a promotional tour, where Kiatprawut made his only appearance for Manchester City, a 3–1 defeat in a friendly match against a Thailand XI.

Shortly after the start of the 2008–09 season, Thaksin’s controlling stake in Manchester City was bought by the Abu Dhabi United Group. A fortnight later, on 16 October 2008, Kiatprawut was released from Manchester City. He subsequently returned to Chonburi.
