About “BLUEDEMON”

2.0 ECOTEC 5 SPEED I first saw the car at the New York Intl car show back in 2004. Took my breath away ,i said to myself i had to have it,mind you i never buy a car the first year it comes out.This time i did.Waited almost 6 months before i got it.Longest 6 months of my life.From day one this car has been a champ,no complaints at all.Has to be the fastest car i have ever owned.Too bad 2009 was the last year that they will be made.one thing with this car it is an every day driver so keeping it clean is a job.a job worth doing because it's the best car i have ever owned.NOT GARAGE KEPT

About “Koup EX”

This car got totaled! fricken lady ran a stop sign and I t-boned her!

I've had my 2011 Kia Forte Koup EX for about 6 months now and love it. Have had zero problems, Ive done all my own maintenance so far, availability of mods are very limited at the moment so i custom made my DC Sports exhaust. Check out my album and vids and visit my youtube channel and tell me what you think! http://www.yo...?feature=mhum My new 2011 Kia Forte Koup EX 2.0L i4 6 speed manual trans. Its titanium color which is like a dark gray. Black and gray interior colors. It was around $17,400. Just got it so not much history yet. The new 2011 Koup is by far better than the 2010 which only had a 4 speed auto and 5 speed manual compared to the 2011 with the 6 speed auto and 6 speed manual. the 2010 Koup EX 0-60 was rated around 8.2 secs and the 2011 Koup EX is around 7.1 secs according to motortrend. I personally got a 7.2 0-60 on the first test and a 6.9 0-60 on my second test, recorded and uploaded on my youtube. Visit my youtube channel to see them: http://www.yo...?feature=mhum
