If you were to change something in the design of your Koup, besides body kits etc.. What would that be?

I always thought that air intakes similar to what the Reventon has would have looked good on the Koup. Anyone else has other ideas?

(Sorry for my very bad image editing... I don't have the tools nor the skills for it... if someone out there can do a better job I will remove the attached pic :))

The hood & front fascia from the concept, along with the wheels. LED taillights & HID headlights, at least as an option if not standard on the SX.

Thicker front end, from certain angles I think the koup can kind of look smushed.... and is like to see more soft touch material inside

independent rear suspension would be a lovely upgrade I think.

omg totallY!!! i hate speedbumps because of this car lol but id say projectors, fogs like on the concept, a more mesh looking upper and lower grille like the evo grille, and racing seats and steering wheel. tcs being OFF until you hit the button to turn it on. rear wheel drive.

Yeah the bumps are a bit harsh in the back lol,
Like your idea about the TCS I agree they got that one backwards.:)
and yeah hell yeah mesh grilles would look great!

Wasn't the concept supposed to be 300+ HP AWD, so yup, i want that ...

along with

Projectors

Maybe shaved door handles (like the concept)

Panoramic roof.

No bulge under the Kia Emblem in the Koup's trunk, that way you can fully debadge without body work.

Yes!! This would be my only big issue. My 07 Spectra had a great interior. The Koup kinda feels cheap & hard everywhere, but I think that goes for most cars in it's class, I know Chevy & Ford are the same way.

Just got back from my dealer. They said Kia was working on a projector kit for the Forte. Don't know if it's true, bu if so...
That would be ideal. I've seen that the Sorento has them I wonder why on earth Kia didn't think to put those in the Koup.

- Bucket seats like the concept would have been nice as well
- Smaller side mirrors like the concept - why did they put Cruze like mirrors on a sports car :confused:
- Shaved door handles - i've seen those on a Nissan GTR yesterday it looks sexy :)

I totally agree with independent rear suspension which i always complain about
with all these options the Koup may would match a higher price tag... :)

I wish the Production Koup had the Power Dome/Bulge down the center of the hood like the concept..... It would look really Nice tied into the KIA Upper Grill Shape where it dips down over the KIA Badge and it adds some more sporty character to the front end.
