Hi everyone,

I am new here although I have been nosing around for a while.

I am thinking about getting the Koup ex with auto gearbox..........

I have always wanted an orange car but I also really like the electric blue.......

If you guys who already own one could do it again what colour would you get?

Thanks

I would say red because i love mine in red and also had the choice of blue and black but I believe red is only an SX color.

For an EX I say blue.

If I had a choice, I'd have a black 2011 Koup SX with 20% tint.

Question For the guys on here, which way around would you do it........
Would you Ask the wife for permission to by the car or buy it and hope she doesn't notice the monthly payments and the different car????

They only made the Burnt Orange/Kopper the first 6 months of production. Going to get harder and harder to find, and you will be getting a 2010 with out all of the nice 2011 improvements.
I bought Kopper (had it delivered from Chicago to St. Louis), and would buy it again.

Dude! Not sure how long you have been married or how you guys work the finances, but from my experience NEVER try to pull one over on the wife.
You shouldn't have to "ask permission" either. You should discuss it. My wife has talked me down out of many an impulse purchase.

Don't impulse buy unless you are buying it for her. Even then only if you know she really wants it and the money side isn't an issue.

The color is the one thing about my car I don't question. Of the koups it was either going to be silver or black and I didn't want a black car. Love blue and the orange has grown on me but didn't want either for my car. Regardless of which car you get you will eventually wish something was different. Bought an auto what I wanted after reading about the hard to shift manual, now I wish I had driven and possibly bought the manual instead. Sometimes I wish I had waited and bought a 2011 Tech Package Koup, just remind myself that I saved a few thousand by getting my car, didn't need GPS anyway.

LOL......
I was only joking about not telling the wife...... We have been together 20 years now.
I have talked over getting another car with her for a few months now as my 2004 sebring has seen better days..... currently needs about $1000 worth of work to make it last for a few more years.
I do want to get the koup, and the thought of a brand new one sounds really enticing especially as there doesn't seem to be any used ones available in my area...... but taking the plunge into $20,000 debt is a bit scary!!!!

^^^^ Agreed. Trying to sneak purchases in is never a good idea. Depending on how you all handle big purchase items I would simply talk it out. She's NOT your mom . . .Asking permission WOW!!! :D

I know you are just joking though. . .But it would be interesting to see her response.

I went to the dealer wanting a blue koup, but they didn't have one the way I wanted. They did have my second color choice, Copperhead. I'm so glad I got that one now.

I would buy my orange in a heart beat again...Actually thinking of getting a matching Sportage for the winter...LOL...I had my choice of white, titanium or orange....

I am glad to be different....but in all truth if I had my way I would repaint my whole car...the Grabber Blue from the mustangs....with the black accents...who knows maybe one day...

Love the Orange and how rare they are. I would have loved a white koup, but no sx in the US... If you can find a well priced Orange sx DO IT!!!!
