Let us begin our third interview!! This time we have our good friend Mc Scraach a very pasionate person of the extreme sports and his ride, a Kia pro_cee’d 1.6 LX in which he has dedicated a lot of time to imprint his own style and without a doubt, makes jealous more than one person while he rides around town.
I havent had the opportunity to meet Mc Scraach personally, but its not because he havent tried it, because he has invited many times to his regular meets he organize in Romania. Kia fanatic and extreme sports, Robin is the founder of the Romanian Kia forum, FanKia, and his other website about extreme sports, Extreme Wheels, one of his biggest hobbies.

Second Question: Why did you decided for the pro_cee’d? What you saw in it? Did you had other brand in mind? Which one?
When I saw kia Pro_cee’d instantIy felt in love, I like the car design and I was amazed that Kia made out a car so beautiful. I was very puzzled about the car that I bought, also i got positive feedback for the OpelAstra, VW Golf but i was limited in money too.
Third Question: When did you bought your pro_cee’d? Did you thought to make any changes from the beginning, or you preferred to go slowly and see the progress?.
I bought the car in November 2007 and I waited a month to come my model in my City, I was too excited about design and I wanted to make many major changes from the beginning. The car was perfect for the projects.
