Hmmm...he said it has a matte black paint job? Is it matte black or matte titanium?

BTW -- the rear spoiler is the new Kia Koup spoiler available at your dealer...

For a SEMA show car, this one's pretty tame. Yes, the body kit's nice (and those wheels are awesome), but otherwise there's not much there.

We've got members here with much more impressive rides.

Out of any Koup I've seen this is my favorite. Yeah it's tame, but I like tame. I don't like the flashy ones, they look like they're trying too hard. This is just clean looking.

And besides, no one has quite the performance or the interior done to their cars like this one.

at least its a start.....
those fender flares-love them.
the rounded exausts- love the left/right bit-however- rather they went for a 2 on the left/right (heck-at least my 95 grand am had 4 real tips pointing out the backside)

i really aint sure about that wierd pattern used on the seats/doors......
the mesh on the headrests- i sorta like.

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind this car, and I prefer clean, classy customs myself.

But this IS the SEMA show, where manufacturers are supposed to "show off". Yes, I like the exhausts. Yes, I like the body kit. But there's no performance mods (are there?) and nothing really that out of the ordinary in the interior.

So, meh... Sorry.

I hope they offer this as a package we can order for are cars! *crossing fingers*
