Hey guys, so I've been lurking for a couple of months and finally decided to go ahead and make an account. Back in January I picked up my 4 door manual SX (which was the only black 4 door manual sx in all of central florida) as a birthday present to myself. So I'm here just wanting to say hey!

Here's a pic of it from when I first got it

Since that pic I've gotten the K badges, a K&N drop in filter, 15% window tints, and I've gone through 3 different sub setups. Started with an infinity basslink 2 (which has about 5 hours of play time and is up for sale), an old rockford hx2/pioneer 760w amp, and now a hypnotic 2000w monoblock with a kenwood 12" and infinity kappa 62.9's in the rear. Now I have one of turbokit's CAI's on preorder and am looking to get the exhaust/cat combo when they finish that. I'm definitely excited for those. I'll post up more recent pics when I get my hands on a camera. :)

Uhhh funny story, actually. I already had the rockford and the pioneer sub in my garage from when I had my civic. I didn't feel comfortable rigging wires and taking apart the new car to run the power cables and speaker cables, so I bought a wheelchair battery and stuck it in a box I made in my trunk and just ran the sub off that, and I ran the remote wire off the power windows fuse. Once I finally decided to actually run cables, I went with my rockford.

best car around for the buck

Love the Forte in 4 or 2 door, like the black always looks nice. Got copperhead myself and had it decked out in vinyl graphics.:D
