Hey guys. Really cool forums here.

I'm turning 20 on Wednesday, and for my birthday my grandparents really surprised me with a bit of money for a new car. Currently I drive a 1999 Mercury Sable. Don't laugh, it's faster than it looks. ;)

I'll be getting a 2010 Kia Forte SX Sedan with 6 speed manual. I like having back seats, and need a little extra space.

This being my first new, and "cool" car, I really want to get into tuning/modding it. I've got a friend who's going to school for auto mechanics stuff who wants to help.

I'll be seeing ya 'round the forums!

I also say get a Koup, if your young and still want a back seat..
the koup is the way to go.

anyway congrats on whatever car you decide on and welcome to the forums.

I agree as well..get the koup...your 20 and the koup is so much nicer IMO..there's still plenty of room in the backseat but u get the sportier look and 2 less doors so go with what u want but the koup is the way to go!! Good luck and welcome!!

Well, I bought a Kia Forte SX Auto in the end... My grandfather funded the car, and he wanted me to get an auto... So... Who can argue?!

Still a great car though! A lot of fun to drive.

I got it for 16,500. Does that sound like a decent price?
