    New Owner PA

    Whats goooooood my fellow Forte owners??
    Just wanted to introduce myself to the forum
    My name is Max. I just bought my new Forte 5 door 1.6L turbo (actually still driving on a dealer tag) But i am coming from an Optima SX 2.0L turbo. I have been eagerly waiting for the 1.6L turbo to be released in the forte and as soon as we received on our lot i had to grab it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the optima, it is an amazing car and is very fun to drive. But just like any other vehicle has is weak points, and i needed a change. My vehicle previous to my two optimas i owned a 12 and currently a 14, was a 07 civic Si. This car reminds me so much of it that i just had to buy it.
    As you see i mentioned that the car was on my lot. I am a Foreman at a Kia dealership in Pa. I have been here for 4 years and counting, and i absolutely LOVE IT!! I will retire here for sure.

    That being said i will be on the forums as much as i possibly can. This is a place for all of us to combine information that we find, share the mods we are doing, and all in all its a place where we come together as Forte owners and socialize. Because no matter who we are we have one thing in common and that the sexy car we can into every day and BOOOOOOOOOOST! Am i right??

    Also if there are any vendors on here that need dealer parts in bulk etc. feel free to p.m me and i can help you out.

    Have a great day!

    Welcome!

    Ironically enough, I had quite a few Civics, then an Optima, and now my F5.... Go figure.. It reminds me of the Civic as well but faster

    looks like we have similar taste. Only difference is my Civic si was a beast. Fully bolt ons and tune. it was just wicked. i miss that thing.
    But that's in the past. now i have a new project. I have others things to focus on other then my car. That was the main reason jumping form the civic to the optima. It was a vehicle that didn't need any work to look good or go fast. But i am till the day i die 100,000,000 % car enthusiast till the day i die. SO eventually i will slowly start working the forte.
