Default Hi from Slovenia!

Hello, my name is Miha. I come from Slovenia (Europe).
I am a Kia fan, that's why I started writing a KIA-WORLD blog, where you can find all latest infos about the upcoming cars, spy shots, news and other.
Right now, I'm redesigning my site and hope to finish with the works in 14 days.

I just found this forum, which I find very interesting! I have been watching for indian automotive scene since Hyundai entered the market with it Atos (Santro) mini car.
Right now they are in progress to launch new Santro, codenamed Pa. I think they will launch it on 31. October, right?

welcome Miha!

@ amit - i guess the "j" is silent while pronouncing Ljubljana - so that will be pronounced as L-ubl-ana.

Welcome aboard,Miha!
I've never had a chance to visit Slovenija,but my dad used to be a frequent visitor and he absolutley loved the country. I remember him mentioning that it is so picturesque & the country side is really serene.

I own a Kia too..a 2004 Optima..

Well..have a great time here,and enjoy every bit of it..

Hey!
Thank you for your welcoming words!
You made me really laugh with your Ljubljana pronunciation!

Ljubljana is our capital city and yes many people that wisit Slovenia say it's beautiful. If we already talk about Slovenia, can you find it on the world map?

You pronounce Ljubljana like this: the "j" is NOT silent while pronouncing Ljubljana! Lju...(ju is pronounced like you) Ljubljana...

payam: Miha is pronounced without s, only Miha. The name comes from Michael name...

Ofcourse Kia Pride was a crap! It was based on Mazda 121!
Latest Kia offering are at least decent and almost on the same level as it's competition. You know that Nitin, dont you!?
Future Kia products will be very attractive as Kia hired ex Audi designer and even better!

Thats right,Himi.. Kia is definitely changing the way its cars look & work. I like most of their vehicles,and it'll be interesting to see how their stable changes over the next few years.
