2019 Kia Stinger GTS

Hi all!

I purchased this car last week and I'm totally digging it! I've owned some pretty high performance vehicles (Porsche Panamera, Audi S3, Lotus Elise, BMW M3, 2 Ford Mustang GT Performance Editions with mods, etc.) Newly separated, I needed to get rid of the Porsche because it was running out of warranty and I can no longer afford to pay their ridiculous service prices, or pay the high monthly car payment. My <former> husband suggested the Stinger as a replacement. I'm embarrassed now that I replied with a disgusted "Uh NO Kia". I PROMISE I'm not a douche; I was just ignorant...

Once I drove the Stinger, I was almost convinced. Then I happened upon the GTS which I found is the only model to come in Federation Orange and ONLY comes in Federation Orange, I knew I found my car soulmate. (My favorite car I've ever owned was my Lotus Elise which was 'Chrome Orange' and my last Mustang GT was also in Orange, so it's kinda my color!) It only had 6,000 miles on it. I find it impossible to believe that the original owner just didn't drive the crap out of this car! I also can't believe the attention this KIA is getting and I love it! Kia sure stepped up their game and I'm a convert. It's a perfect fit for me and it's a badass car. I can't wait to have some mods done- considering a cold air intake and a tune to start with...

And hey... please don't tell my <former> husband he was right! lol

Welcome and congrats! You picked an excellent color. I can't imagine how many heads must turn at the sight of a bright orange car.

Enjoy!
