Hey everybody!

I just upgraded from a leased '17 Fiesta ST. I went with the white GT RWD with a red leather interior and I couldnt be happier. I am going to miss the manual transmission but the traffic in NOVA is no joke so it was starting to get frustrating. I am glad to be here and look forward to seeing what everyone else does with theirs i.e. mods. I rebadged mine with the Korean K badges basically as soon as I got it.

Cheers

Be careful if you're getting the replacement badge that requires removing the old one. The paint on the front bumper is very soft.

I already had it done. I talked to two Kia dealers near me about having it done since I didnt want to mess it up. The dealer where I bought the car quoted me $250 and another $450. I talked with a local body shop and ended up working with the mechanic to get it done for $50. I replaced the hood, 4 wheels, and steering wheel. I was too scared to do it myself.

I just looked at the photo again. They did a great job.

Congratulations and welcome! Good choice on color combo. I did the K badges too. I left the wheel logos cause I didn’t like the size difference in the ones I got.

I actually had someone ask me if it was a Jaguar today lol
No wonder! Conversely, I'm curious if any Lexus owners are asked if their cars are KIA's?

Hmm ...
