Hi, wasn't sure where to post this but could someone define some quick vocab for me? And yes I know these are probably very obvious but; what does NA stand for? as in NA veloster. What is a sticky or bump? Thanks!

NAV, or Naturally Aspirated Veloster means that its the non turbo version. Ive seen ppl refer to the turbo as NAVT but i dont think they are right, its only VT.

A stickied topic is one that can only be made a sticky by a moderator, basically it is an important topic and will show up at the top of the sub-category in the forums. For example, the "what you paid" topic in the general discussion section is a sticky because many ppl post in it and it makes the topic easier to find in the forum. Finally a bump is when someone posts in a normal, non stickied topic to bring it to the top in the list of recent topics.

Ok, so I'm a total noob with some of the vocabulary out there. I keep seeing an acronym I cannot find the meaning. KDM. What does it stand for and what does it mean?

I still have to tell myself when I see NA or NAV in these threads it's not North American or Navigation. :D
Korean Domestic Market

JDM is Japanese Domestic Market
