Ahhh as the days weeks and month's go by, the time i buy my forte is drawing closer. I am so looking forward to it. :cool:

I was thinking of getting the CF Hood from TK after I get it. Does anyone know what this will look like on a white koup? My imagination can only take me so far :D

Also, this will be my first new car. Any break in tips? On the kia website they say the break in period for their engines take roughly 1000kms. I heard just try not to rev it up much. anything else?:confused:

I thought that a cf hood would look weird on a koup but it actually looks really good. I didn't pay too much attention to the hood but it looked great and seemed to be a good quality. I have been satisfied with my interactions with TK so far.

Oh! Aren't those on the Mustang in Kick-Ass? I've gotta say the mustang in that movie was by far the best looking one I've seen.

So get CF hood = Get hood pins? kinda sucks but i guess it kinda adds to the tunerish look of it(btw Tunerish is my word, no stealing:D) are they easy to install? cuz i was gonna get my friend to help me install the hood when i get it.

You don't need the cables for the pins, you can just use pins -- they are available as just locks too, also, some hood pins are made to be flush with the hood -- just have to shop around for what you want.. Just makes sense to use the hood pins in case the hood latch fails with fiberglass or CF hoods.
