Traded my little pillbug in this morning, and picked up a new '13 Veloster in Vitamin C. I'd been wanting one ever since I first saw one (a month after I bought my Rio). No, I didn't get the turbo 'cuz I would just get myself in trouble :p . *Love* all the features and how it feels & drives, and the fact it's got the same engine & transmission (mtx). Going back to the dealer Saturday for a tint job.

Good luck with the new car. I'm on the veloster forums quite a bit too but dont really post just a lot of reading and research.

well done on the new purchase. The Veloster is a nice drive, i tested the turbo not long ago. The non turbo though is more than likely slower than your old Rio :p That's not everything though.

the turbo went nicely, had a much smoother takeoff than the Polo GTi i drove. Not as much pull but it was a fun car. Unfortunately the Veloster Turbo comes standard with a glass roof here and i could barely fit in it, even though i'm only 5'11

I see myself 10 years down the road being the only one left in this forum.
but then you can say whatever you want to people and they won't talk back

Congrats on the new purchase. I generally have bad A.D.D. when it comes to keeping cars. So far I've had my Rio5 since November and don't have any plans on trading it in.......yet.

Post a pic of your Veloster when you get a chance!
