    Never considered it seriously until I test drove a Base stinger and enjoyed driving it more than my 335xi !
    Now I'm looking for some nice lease deals. The base stinger is good enough for me!

    Not really a convert but I'm excited about any car that is being developed with a mission of catering to the enthusiast. I used to be a BMW fanboy and in general I was predisposed to German cars, but in order for them to be engaging, one has to upgrade to the 340i or C43 or S4 which are wayy too expensive and depreciate like falling bricks. Kia brings the same, if not better, sort of fun at a much more affordable price point. And they did a great job with the execution.

    My only gripe with the stinger is the lack of color options in the base trim and the nonexistent space under the driver seats for rear passengers to stretch into. I do a lot of trips where four grown ups need to sit comfortably for long periods. These are the only shortcomings and looking at the residual value in the lease deals, I'm guessing even the stinger will be subject to terrible depreciation.

    I'm kinda on the fence now. Also, I drove a GTI manual and now I want a manual. So, maybe when the stinger gets serious (gets a manual option), I'll reconsider jumping ship.

    Funny thing I went from a GTI to an Audi S3 and now to a Kia Stinger. I really doubt Kia will offer a manual for the Stinger, if you look at the trend these days even the C43 and S4 have all gone to auto.

    It's sad but I am inclined to agree. I've driven a manual since I learned how to drive but this will be the first automatic that will be my personal car if I do choose to get it. I was looking at the Golf R for a while and that does come in a manual but most owners of the Golf R agree the car is better in the automatic than manual.

    Maybe I'm hoping for something that'll never be realized. Still, I'm willing to wait for a year or two to see how things pan out.
