Kia Stinger

Recommended Posts

Guest Sime

@rantan with a grain of salt, but the salesman who showed me the car today also sold me my current 2 kias, nice chap and he knows I’m not a hard sell. He drove this car just once, and all he said is that it’s power put him off, he had to drive it back to the dealer. He wasn’t ready for it. 

 

Take that for what it’s worth.

I’d sell a kidney for the GTR, money is irrelevant. 

Need my kidneys...

God knows they get a flogging...

I would however trade me vasectomy...

This is not a Golf competitor. The more natural comparison to the Stinger would be the Audi A5 or S5. In that light the Stinger is a bargain! 

id agree with this. this isn't a golf gti or golf r competitor. 

 

its a larger sedan with a larger engine and rear wheel drive. couldnt be further removed from something like a 2L turbo FWD or AWD smaller hatch back. 

 

the stinger doesnt actually have a LOT of competition. and agree VW especially has been playing the supply and demand game all the time. see the limited edition 2 door gti performance. limited run. pre order if want one. there goes any chance for any huge discounts. same with the wolfsburg. limited runs dont even have brochure for what people, are buying. if want one. put money down....only way getting one....

 

biggest laugh is the bmw trick with the 135i performance. clear out the last lot off the end of the production run of them by popping some aftermarket stuff on when come in the country, keep to a limited number add  about $5k of after market bits and a car that has a $65k drive away cost and suddelnlyhas ~$80k price tag on car sales. just because it is a limited release ?

I will give you change from 20 cents...

I have that said once with genuine terror...

I once stuck a worked 308 into an already tricked 253 LH Torana..

This thing was seriously quick...

My sister-in-laws Beetle broke down...

I offered the Torana as a loan...

She drove it around the block...

Bought it back & said...

"Its much too fast for me"...

She was literally shaking...

Then before they are all sold...

Announce the new 140i at less than..

Wait for it...$60k...

Hmmm...Grid R & 140i...

Both significantly cheaper than their predecessors...

How do you spell collusion....

I drove behind a Stinger GT yesterday and it's both lower and wider than expected. I think it looks really good.

I saw my first one on the road last week.   Only caught it from the rear though. 

 

The back end is a lot more rounded around the lights than I expected.   not sure if I like it or not.   leaning towards not.
