    Congrats. You're going to really have fun in the Turbo. What I liked most about it is catching people off guard while driving around. There's just something about seeing a boxy little car go like stink.

    I was just looking over the specs on the Canadian models; Very interesting that the Canadian version comes with FULL leather, heated and cool front seats and rear heated seats.

    Kia dropped those features on the US version.

    Just wait till you start to ask yourself, "Should I buy a performance part for my Dodge or my Soul?" Oh and Car and Driver has tested the 1.6t before and suggested that they shaved 0.5 seconds off their 0-60 times by using premium fuel, as if you need more wallet-shock, right?

    Not even gonna pretend,what’s available for the new ones?

    I’ve heard there’s some form of restrictor either upstream on the intake side,or down stream of the turbo,that can be replaced to keep peak boost.

    I would love to do some simple things to max what KIA has designed.

    Yeah I actually knew the white had metallic that's how it got named snow white pearl, the metallic gives it the pearl effect. I actually ordered a red one, but the white came in well before it. I am glad now as I prefer the white to the red. I hadn't considered white at all.

    That’s pretty awesome lol

    I too was initially after red because of the red trim,thought it would be too much.
    Figured if I just got a red one it would be more subtle,but like you said,in person I really liked the pearl in the white.

    The turbo is the best gas trim for sure, but I can't justify that much money for it. Only a few grand more and you can get the EV which might outperform it. Waiting until that releases, then I'll compare 0-60's with the used turbo market.

    Elantra GT is still in contention too.. but now that Volkswagen extended their bumper to bumper warranty to 6 year/72k mi I might consider a GTI.. (and dump it at 5 years 364 days)

    Very impressed with the options coming from a base!Was very amazed you could have that much tech in a Soul.


    Looking forward to racking up some serious seat time in this one!
