    Fake hood vents need to go

    We're not considered as silly but what is silly as one put it in there in the first place. I can come to a conclusion that after 4 years of production and they're still using the same fake vents that there are not necessary..

    Fake hood vents need to go

    Well you might not care but any kind of performance car that puts out this amount of heat really should happen,,,, yeah man I leaned on it just a little bit and pop the hood it was like I opened up a 500 degree pizza oven

    Fake hood vents need to go

    And some not so expensive cars had them as functional, ex. 1977 to '78, Datsun 280z. They used a spill tray underneath for water intrusion

    New carbon fiber hood for the Stinger

    I have seen that and it looks a little over the top in terms of keeping the cars original appearance and style. Boy it just seems like Kia did not finish the job in terms of the dysfunctional hood vents. Perhaps two small extractors in the same location where water could not get in. I may have...

    Fake hood vents need to go

    I guess it's okay if you're a teenager but really this is a cheap shortcut.

    Fake hood vents need to go

    I have to chime in since I bought the car knowing they were fake vents but it seems to be on my list of things to do. It does seem like there's an awful lot of heat generated and no place to go especially when you shut the car down. I recall having a car that the fan ran afterwards to cool...

    Durability upgrades. Must have.

    Sounds like good preventative maintenance and only hope that Kia will agree . Does the install void my warranty?

    Durability upgrades. Must have.

    Yeah I saw that video and I don't understand what is being connected. It should be the PCV valve as far as I know since that's what controls the blow by pressure. So that lower connection is a PCV valve correct? Really makes sense and I don't know why manufacturers continue with this practice...

    Crazy fast car - 2021 Stinger GT AWD

    So I went back to Tire rack and it appears that the staggered only comes with a 19-in rims. Now I would think the GT would only come with 19s but when you go back to pre 2020 you get the 18" size possibility. That is just mind numbing. 😬

    Crazy fast car - 2021 Stinger GT AWD

    I did a quick search too and found Advance Auto with zero results but also had one from AutoZone at $200. So yeah I suppose the $400 price is from dealer service quoting dealer prices. I remember when battery was about 50 - 60 bucks and then they went up to 100 and now 200 plus. I guess it's...

    No problem, so why the battery is going to be so darn expensive?
