Hey all,

Just picked it up tonight and snapped a quick pic to post. I'll try to get some actual pics on the weekend when the sun's out.

2011 Koup SX (with winter tires, I didn't bother have them put on the rims, they're in my backseat)

Welcome to the Forte brotherhood fellow Edmontonian. Hope to see you around, and most importantly enjoy your forte ;)

You might see me around :p My forte is most distinguishable by the purple license plate LEDs

Welcome to the forum and the best looking cars around.

I'd go factory rims for winter and get better for summer tire set. Those black rims look so plain jane.

I have never seen the 2011 Koup...only the sedan. What are the differences between the 2010 and the 2011 Koup? Obviously nothing on the exterior from the photo. It's nice to have another Koup rolling the streets of Edmonton though, welcome!

Welcome, good call on the winter tires!

I didn't realize we had more than a few Edmontonians on this forum... :)

Exterior is mainly the led side mirror lights that are most noticable. I might have to upgrade that part since they look cool. We have a few forum threads that list all the changes. Paddle shifters for auto and 6 speed trannies manual and auto on EX and SX.

Any Edmontonians feel free to friend me. Come Summer time I will definitely be looking to start applying some upgrades.

Plan on using this Winter time to prioritize what exactly I want to do.

I think I'm just going to grab some wheel covers for winter after work today. ~$25 each from Canadian Tire, unless any Edmontonians have a better local suggestion.

Nah, wasn't me. I would have been at work at that time. Worked through lunch. I did see a white Koup parked outside of the Joey Tomatoes on Jasper Ave in the evening though. Don't think it was Ryan, since the rims look different than his avatar pic. Didn't get a chance to glance at the roof to confirm ;)

The "SX Luxury" comes with LED rear lights around here, I only got the "SX" because I didn't want a push-button start or a navigation system.

I'll probably install rear LEDs in the Summer.
