Just got my new 2011 Forte Koup but was looking at alot of aftermarket parts and seems like the Sedan's get a bit more selection? Just wondering whats the different dimensions for both? Like considering the hood, bumpers, side skirts, rear bumper/rear diffuser. How compatible are Koup parts to Sedan and other way around?

The aftermarket grilles will work for a Koup or Sedan. I have yet to see a Koup with a Sedan bumper or aftermarket Sedan bumper and vice versa. One of the members Crock89, who owns a sedan, has a Koup front bumper.

All of the lighting is the same. Headlights can be swapped.

Aftermarket performance all comes down to if you have a 2.0L or 2.4L

also- dont quote me on this-but i think i read somewhere that for every 12 sedans sold- 1 koup is sold- so the market place has a heck of alot more sedans rolling around- so makes sense that the aftermarketeers will be aiming for the sedans....

Rear bumper interchangeable? you sure? I always thought they weren't since the tail lights were different sizes and the actual Rear bumper was different. I agree with you about the front bumper (i think Crock had it). and hood is probably the same.

I always thought it was because there was also the cerato which is the same as the sedan. I got a sx sedan, I like it causs it draws way less attention than my buddies koup but has the same umpff :)
