This batch all Forte

Post by medico on 25th February 2010, 11:41 pm

Collected my ride this evening at Pandan.
Must have been 100 Koups awaiting delivery.
Lots of racing reds and whites.
2 or 3 lime greens.
1 santorini blue, a few blacks and a few titanium silvers.
No orange or bright silver.
Many seemed to have opted for the red leather.
Anyway, all the cars had 'Forte' badging and not 'Cerato'.
Strange as I thought Forte was a locally-made badge, and that Cerato was standard from Korea.
Mine has the red 2.0 script as well and it goes nicely with the red 'K' in the Koup badge.

Yes, debadge everything. Are you getting the 'K' emblem? Looks a bit Lexus wannabe but somehow better looking than stock.

As for the BBS, are you still keen?

Don't remember seeing orange as a stock colour in the brochures.

He's not that old. Just exactly my age . Like you my '05 DSG worked perfectly so I don't know where the plot went wrong. Are you looking Korean as well? According to US mag Consumer Reports, they are fast becoming the most reliable cars in the world.

That is why it is so funny. I would imagine that reliability should get better. I suspect it has something to do with the dry clutch 7 speed design. it is definitely the gearbox if all the various marques are all affected. Surely they must do something about it. Quite disappointing.

As for looking at Korean, I have 'looked' and followed Medico's path...

Wow! That makes 3 vaggers I know that have bought the Koup. What colour did you get? I think his Titanium Silver looks quite nice. In fact, its almost the same colour as my new ride.

OK, Mr high-class Smile.

Please share your thoughts on your first day with the Koup...

The likes I already know but what about some dislikes? Have you been chioed to race with the various esteemed competitors discussed here?

Have you successfully picked up ladies you otherwise would have never been able to? Smile
