    Had her for just over a week now and I couldn't be happier with it. From the 2015 to this, it's really a different car altogher. The twin disc clutch and thr new trans gearing is awesome with 3.55 gears.

    As you can see, i didn't waste time changing a couple things. ALready added a set of Velgen Classic 5 wheels, Lowered on the CJ Pony Part Springs, UPR Verticle Links, and installed the CORSA Sport catbackexhaust.

    A lot more to come of this over the next few weeks.

    I can't see anything but I've always been a fan of the Kona, very pretty color.

    Looks good. Love the color combo with the bronze wheels.

    Just can't get past the front bumper.

    I love the 18's! Congrats on the new ride.
    Quick question. Does getting an aftermarket exhaust get rid of the active exhaust feature?

    That active is an option which I did not get. I know CORSA is working on one. Magnaflow does as well.

    I ordered white, but everytime I see the Kona in the sunlight I second guess my decision.

    That's a good looking car. Kona is a great color. my 2011 Mustang was Kona and i got lots of compliments on the color.
