Shawn Flindall wanted to dive into the KDM scene, but he also wanted to do it in a unique way that suited his own personality and style. After deciding on a 2016 Kia Rio LX+, he was motivated by the popularity of the KDM niche in the car scene, and began transforming his compact Korean hatchback into a unique ride of his own.

"I honestly do not have a specific favorite modification, I just love the overall look of the Static Rio and how everything is coming together to complete my vision."

"There are a few small future modifications that I want to do such as Drilled and Slotted Rotors with Performance pads and SS Brake lines, Half cage, Rear Window Vents, Swift or 326 Springs to get me a little lower and stiffer suspension but at the end of the day the biggest future modification is going to be the engine itself. A complete swap to the 1.6 GDI turbo engine from a Veloster or Forte or a complete custom turbo build on the stock 1.6 GDI N/A. Once I dive into the performance side of this car, I suspect it will be off the road for sometime to complete it."
