    The DCT in both the R and S3 is phenomenal, way better than even the transmission in the new S4/S5.

    Doesn't hurt to wait, they'll probably fix a lot of the first year bugs by then. Plus you'll probably have more color options too.

    I just bought one this past Monday. I've been tracking the car since Nov'16 and it is my 29th car. Never would I have thought I would buy a Kia. I've owned a MB CLS500, a Porsche Boxster, two BMW530's, three 3-series and many more.

    I am thoroughly impressed thus far and simply don't think there is something else on the market in its price range; especially after a $6,500 (lease cash) discount.

    My wife and I briefly looked at Kias around 2013 before our son was born. While we were impressed with the value per dollar, as gearheads we were less than excited. Fast fwd to last month when our 05 Accord hybrid was in it's death throes and we needed new wheels. The latest Optima and Soul seemed markedly improved in driving dynamics, as was the Rio and Forte. Those were too small for our needs(excepting the Optima), but then we eyed the Stinger. I'd been clocking the development of the Stinger since the GT concept, and was smart enough to let my wife drive it 1st. :) Once she drove it, the search was "Game Over" lol! :)

    I looked at the Ceramic GT2 yesterday, beautiful car. But would like to see if they offer the Orange next year.
