Picked up my Koup sx a whole day ago!


Breaking it in to 1k miles and then hopefully making use of the rest of this forum. So far i'm interested in what i've found in here!

Plans:
- Lowering springs
- Intake
- Tint
- Exhaust
- More research into this "Turbo Koup" idea XD

where in pa? and welcome to the forum
Montgomery county - Harleysville to be more specific

got a 2011 Koup sx in Titanium - Manual trans

Total amateur questions follow:

Light ticking coming from engine and only 400 miles on the car - normal?
What's proper break in mileage for a kia? I've seen both 600 and 1k+

* disclosure - previously owned a 2000 subaru legacy gt which i traded in for my koup - one and only car - new to the KIA world - feel free to bash *

The ticking from the engine might just be the timing chain, I can hear it on mine and I have 22,000miles on mine. Break in time is a realitive thing people will give you diffrent answers and there are a few threads with opinions on it. I would wait till 1,000 on yours.

Done and done. Funny thing is i've been trying to look for places that can do good tint for a reasonable price too so seems like a win win for me XD
