    I love your Forte5. It's tastefully modified and beautifully detailed! You mention it's your second car. My current car is a 2019 Forte5 SX and it's my 47th car. (I suspect we're a bit different in age.) My previous car was a 2014 Forte5 SX so you can see how much I love these cars. All my life I have driven small, nimble and quick cars and the Forte5s certainly fit the pattern.

    I live in Port Dover, not that far from KW. If you're ever come down this way for a drive (and some perch) let me know and we can spend some time chatting about our cars. My car is dead stock and will probably remain so until the warranty runs out a couple of years from now. Still, I like the notion of changing the exhaust to something sportier so for that reason I'd love to hear your exhaust.

    I noticed a mention of possibly getting Forte5s together for a tour. I can tell you that the roads along the shore of Lake Erie, between Port Dover and Port Rowan, are fantastic.

    Hey Everyone! I've been absent for a while, partially because life got crazy and partially because I was out enjoying the good weather in the Forte.

    Unfortunately on December 31 while I was driving between my two branches we had a bit of a snow storm going on here and while driving to my other location a lady ran a stop sign causing a t-bone collision and the write off of my 2016 Forte 5 SX...

    I just wanted to say that the community here has been fantastic and I have drawn a lot of inspiration from a lot of you. When I first picked up the car I had no idea of the direction I wanted to take it and this was my launching pad for that journey.

    Don't feel too bad for me though. While the loss of my Forte was devastating it allowed me the opportunity to pick up a new 2020 Kia Stinger GT Limited and I am just over the moon! 3.3L V6 Twin Turbo, what is there not to love?

    I wish you all the best in your Forte journeys and thank you for the help and support! I will be checking in on the community once in a while to see what wild builds are going on. Keep being an awesome community and keep supporting each other in your learning and showing people what Kia's can do.

    Peace,

    Wow. Hope everyone was OK.

    Congrats on the Stinger! I've been drooling over those for a long time.

    Thanks everyone! No one was hurt. I was not at fault and the other driver had expired insurance. It has just been a beautiful drive so far, just over 3000km and loving every one.
