howdy from florida-
you got the spoiler/seller already in mind? if not- check out elite spoliers -based out of texas- they have 2 for the forte available ( lol- i dont rep them- but i did buy mine there and was more than pleased w/the cost and look of it)

also- your 3rd brake lite strobe? got a place to get one yet? (if not- i know a few sites that have that- also- they have a module for the main brakes -where you can adjust the flash rate from the dash or turn it off completely)

loved my visit (even if work related) stay at halifax :)

Hey from nova scotia! I just got my Koup 2 days ago and am loving it. Naturally I trolled around the forums for months and joined other forums......civics, mazda...etc but i'm so glad i got my kia.

I'm in sydney, if you're in sydney i think i may have seen your forte, i noticed a sedan with the same color with a K badge the other day, i told my girlfriend "hey! they care about their forte, i have to meet them"

It may have been, not sure. If it was this weekend then it was either friday or sunday. I grew up in Inverness so i was going home to show off my new koup to all my friends. I live in Sydney now, just started a job with the provincial dept. of finance. We're actually working on a project to get firefighters employee self-service...although i don't think volunteers are in that umbrella.

I just got my koup friday and i already have 600km on it. The only time i stopped driving it was to wash and wax it. On the plus side i still haven't burnt off the free gas that came with it. Not as good mileage as my old rio but it can go up a hill.

I see a titanium SX koup drive down george street every morning. Depending on if i'm late for work or not it's either coming down with an old man and woman or coming up with just the old woman. They're even more rare in Inverness where everyone is still "chevrolet makes the best cars and cars from anywhere but america are shit".

My gf's father drove his neighbors new 2011 sonata and thought it was a mercedes....it wasn't even the top-of-the-line sonata.

Same, when my jetta broke down i had to get a cab to the dealership. The cabbie was like "oh so you're buyin a kia?" i said "i hope so" he replied "why?"

I told him i loved the car and that it was way better than any civic/corolla/mazda3 and he didn't say a think after that.....also charged me $10 which i thought was pretty steep from george street to grand lake rd.
