    Acura TLX Type S Instrumented Test Numbers Are In ...

    Ouch! I'm not against the Type S (competition benefits everyone). But across the net most people are asking why Acura didn't put a little more "oomph" in the Type S.

    Kia Stinger Aftermarket Wheel Options

    A lot of nice wheels here, but for me, my car stays 100% bumper-to-bumper bone stock!

    Don't worry, you're not being combative. Just that some people don't like hearing the truth. Oh well ...

    Exhaust Thread

    I'm don't really want an aftermarket exhaust, but if I did, this dedicated KIA Stinger site is certainly the place to look for one.

    Ran my 100% Bone Stock Stinger GT AWD ...

    I noticed that in tests for the Stinger GT AWD, I matched MotorWeek's 13.1 sec quarter, beat C&D's 13.2 sec time, and walloped MT's abysmal 13.6 sec time. I'm game if the last two are in need of a driver. :cool:

    My Stinger at the Dyno

    Seriously, only a 3.6% loss to the wheels should raise some eyebrows. Should be more like 310-315 whp for a RWD, not 352 hp.

    Ran my 100% Bone Stock Stinger GT AWD ...

    This was Test & Tune, I was literally surrounded by radically modified race cars including an 850 hp 1970 Chevy Nova. As for me, I spent decades at Test & Tunes running mildly modded Fox body 5.0's. I bracket raced a few times (boring), and won my class once (pic below).

    ATTENTION : Brake rotors and warranty

    I know this is an older post, but after recently experiencing the Stinger GT brake shudder issue, I found that the bedding procedure reduced the issue considerably. And because of traffic I was only able to do the procedure 4-5 times, so I'm guessing had I been able to do a few more the problem...

    What was your reaction the first time behind the wheel of a Stinger??

    Stinger GT is plenty faster. C&D's Sti test got them to 60 mph in 5.1 sec and the quarter in 13.6 sec@102 mph. C&D's Stinger GT AWD test ran to 60 mph in 4.6 sec and the quarter in 13.2 sec@108 mph. The Stinger GT RWD was even faster ...

    First Time Stinger Owner

    I see you have two different posts regarding your concerns, and that your other post actually mentions the issues as being the sound system and ventilated seats. #1 I have the base GT with the 9 speaker system and it is more than adequate, very good actually so for me it was a non issue. #2 I...

    Fake hood vents need to go

    It is beyond silly, it's inane to malign the integrity of KIA Engineers & Designers. I have come to the conclusion that, after all your complaints, you still bought the car. Lol

    Fake hood vents need to go

    Well you should've been aware that cars put out a ton of heat when you open up the hood after it's been running, so yeah, the KIA Engineers knew what they were doing and our car's not overheating is proof of that. Time we move on from all this silly talk about "functional/non-functional" hood...

    Fake hood vents need to go

    I had a used '69 Nova SS with it's OEM fake hood vents, so yeah, inexpensive cars had non functional one's too. I didn't care my Chevy had them then, and I don't really care my KIA has them now. Lol
