Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi.

My name is Greg and I'm from Long Island, NY. I've been coasting the forums over the past couple of weeks and, now that I've finally got my Koup, I decided to join up.

Some info on the car:
It's a 2010 Koup EX
Ebony Black
Black Cloth
5-speed MT

I'm loving it so far and I can't wait to get more time in the drivers seat. I'm coming from the VW community and I've only owned German cars so this is an interesting switch for me. I never thought I'd be driving a Kia.

Here's a quick pic that I took this morning.

I know, I've gotta get that front license plate off. I'm gonna take care of that soon.

Anyway, so that's a little about me and my car. I look forward to browsing the forums and learning more and meeting new people and seeing some beautiful cars.

I don't see them too often. I mostly see riced out cars around me haha. So far the koup is stock, I just picked her up on Tuesday, but I have a few plans. Maybe I'll startup a thread going through everything I do when I do it.

KIA I got them in hyper silver. I saw a pic of these enkeis on a silver koup and love that look so I wanted to do that rather than taking a chance with gunmetal and maybe not liking it. The high flow cat is a little loud for my liking and yes I def have to relearn how to drive haha and yes u are old lol.

Gman: that's the beauty of this forum...u can ask for opinions, post your results and get feedback and everyones great. My koup is modded to a T lol not riced modded but sexually modded hahaha

So I had the day off yesterday and I finally got around to getting some things done on the car.

Nothing crazy, I painted the numbers on the shift knob...



...and did some grill pinstriping. Simple stuff, I think it looks nice though.



And yes that's a Rio in the background, it's my moms.

Next will be the calipers to match the pinstriping. Which will be done as soon as I have off AND it's not raining. I can't wait for April to end.

Gman: what did u use for pinstriping? That doesn't look like tape. It looks like the plastic looking stuff that's on GTI's. Looks good man!

I definitely like the pinstriping. I think little things like that really make a car stand out. I was planning on painting my calipers red soon. I am definitely interested in the pinstriping like you did. What all is involved in that?
