Hello from Nebraska

Howdy all! We just bought ourselves a 2013 Koup SX 2.4 in racing red a week ago. 87k. I've been on the Hyundai side of these forums with my Sonatas so I'm happy to be here!

Not a whole lot done to it yet. I debadged a bit and then plasti-dipped the Kia badges until I get the aftermarket badges. I spent about 8 hours last week cleaning the interior (steam cleaning, etc) and changed the oil last week. I'll be doing the brakes in the next couple of weeks. This is the first car I've had the had the wheels rusted to the rotor, so I've got some cleaning to do down there. I love the car so far. Got it about 1200 bucks under blue book due to some minor hail damage, but I'll probably get a glue puller to pop those out. The last owner also tried to touch up some spots with the wrong color paint and the clear coat has tons of swirl marks in it, so several hours polishing will be in my future as well!
