Do you have a Forte Koup or Forte5?

My issue is with the front. I feel like it's too bubbly and rounded from most angles. I like the front end on the Dodge dart. Something like that with our headlights would give the car a more aggressive feel.

I think we need to find a company that is willing to make different grills and a front lip for us.

@Innovazero - is that your car with the EZ Lip? It looks great. I didn't know there was such a lip available. The wheels look sweet too - what are they (brand, size, offset)? I'm running 18x8 Kudos Rios with 45 offset (black with a machined face). I was very tempted to go all black like yours, and seeing how good yours looks in all black makes we wonder if I should have gone down that path after all........ :).

Johno.

I traded my 2015 LX Sedan in for the new 2015 Koup SX Turbo. I love this car. After only 2 days of owning it, I replaced the factory tweeters and door speakers with Alpine. Then got tint done, installed a 6th Element Engineering SRI and Intercooler resonator delete. My next step is to look into tunes for the vehicle. I'm in the process of making an axel back exhaust with no resonator for it.

Welcome! I did the same thing with the speakers. The day I got the car is the day I ordered all new speakers lol

It seems to be a common thing with a lot of the Koups. Those rear speakers are about as useless as trying to sell snow to an eskimo haha. I've been trying to find a rear diffuser for the top of my rear windshield, but Still having difficulties.

Is interesting that there are more hatches here(or maybe hatch owners just like responding to polls more) while other groups are dominated by the koup or sedan.

@BigVin1770 - have you seen my thread in the Appearance section re; Appearance Mods for Koup? There is a website for rear diffusers on top of the rear windshield, and other appearance mods, noted in that post. They seem to be based out of Korea, but it might be a starting point....

Oh god don't remind me that I don't have boom in my Forte5 yet. Had 2 sundown audio 12 in. Subs with a 3000 watt power acustik mono block amp in my old suzuki. Worried about voiding the electrical warranty.

I love my Koup. I almost bought a Challenger R/T but one Mopar in the garage is enough.
