18x8 wheels with 215/40R18 tires. When I need mew tires I'm gonna do a 225 to flush out the wheel well gap a little more.
Looks good subtle, I love the stance with that color combo. So you're gonna trade in do different car or continue modding with the Koup later on?
I wanna OEM turbo Koup but I don't know if that will ever happen. If it doesn't I'm gonna probably go with a Genesis Coupe.
Updated my pics on page 2. Didn't like the first ones I put up.
I don't ever remember hearing there was a problem with FOTM until KIA didn't win. :D

I voted for you because I (mostly) like your car and that's after I thought your photos sucked. I'm a big photo snob, I think they're important. ;)
How are mine? They're not my best, I am more practiced at night photos, still haven't gotten used to daylight photos.
Lol, now I wander what subtle thinks about my pics, no FX, photoshop or any enhancing, straight up digital point and shoot, just took my time and used what natural elements I could find.
You don't need a fancy DSLR camera and Photoshop to take good photos. I honestly think both of you took excellent shots. And BTW I'm not good at photography by any means, I just appreciate good pictures.

A lot of people regarding FOTM say where and how you take your pictures doesn't matter. If you don't want to vote on a vehicle according to that then fine, but I'm going to. If someone like SX FORTE, thiefness and myself took the time to find a good location and were mindful of good angles, etc. then I think that should be taken into consideration. If two people with the same car, mods, etc. sent in photos to a import magazine to be published who's gonna win? The car with a good location and good image quality or the car with cell phone pics in their driveway? Hmm...
so you basically bought another used forte for 16k?
I'd rather have a new paint job and a Stage II turbo than another Forte. I just don't have a boat load of money to throw around like KIA. ;)
A member with less than 10 posts is gonna win... fail.
Just to make things easier for anyone, here all the entries and what page their photos are on. SS you might need to update the poll if you can. I don't see Jacaloon or KnightRider87 in the voting.

Well given your previous guess in an earlier month, I would say your predictions aren't very good. :D Don't take it serious! I'm f$%^ing with you! :p
Yeah I noticed that Jcaloon, I tried to tell shattered.stars but I guess she missed it.

Sooo, at the risk of sounding like (K)(I)(A), and I wouldn't win anyway, but how is a Koup with black mirror covers and K badges beating everyone? Don't get me wrong it's a nice car but he takes the inserts off and he gets double votes over someone like thiefness' clean looking Koup with a body kit? Noodile, would you look into this? Sorry, rant over.
Well I guess KIA you were right. My apologies, this really is a popularity contest. Sorry but my car is nicer than Forza's. We essentially have the same exact car except he has the 2011 OEM LED taillights. And please don't list your taillights as a mod, because it's not, it came with the car.

Here's the differences: My shit is dropped, his looks like a monster truck. He has stock wheels that he took the inserts out which leaves a bunch of ugly holes and is sucked into the wheel well, my wheels are clean and hella flush with the wheel well. He has K emblems that look like knockoff Lexus emblems, I have Koup emblems that are model specific. He has poorly painted calipers, I have professional looking caliper covers. He has a cheap and cheesy looking badge on the grille, I have clean red pin striping. He has eyelids that look like some dirty whore trying to entice you, I have switchbacks and the "Audi" LED mod. But I lose to him because he has door scuffs you barely notice, and black mirror covers (I have them as well just not installed)?

I didn't go and ask anyone, "Hey you know me, so you should vote for me!" Since when did this become the American Presidency? Politics...

Hey... mines a monster truck too :(
Not really, cause with your body kit you're still closer to the ground. If you go any lower you're not gonna have much fun driving around with all the pot holes, speed bumps, driveways, etc.
Thanks Noodile. A mod vote is worth like 10 votes right? :D

And BTW, I didn't mean to offend anyone if I did with my little rant. I like to bitch every now and then just like anybody else.

Here's the page numbers again just to make the photo search easier for everbody...
