    The Optima was the first car that made me consider Kia as a brand, the Stinger is what sold me on the brand.

    Don't!.. I own a Stinger Gt, Nothing but problems after around 2 months of owning it. The Sunroof needed to be romoved & repaired. Now I have all sorts of new noise problems inside the cabin!. Rattling, vibrations from inside the roof lining & constant door jam seal creeks.. Very Disappointing..

    In my 7th month. 15k miles. No problems at all. Sometimes something goes bad. Doesn’t mean every car built is bad

    The Stinger is responsible for me even considering a Kia. I've probably spent over 24 hours watching Stinger video's on youtube. I'm definitely not a brand snob but you could say I'm bit of a manual transmission snob. lol My first car was 00 Honda Accord V6 (4spd auto that was TERRIBLE), followed by a 02 BMW 330Ci (5spd manual without a sunroof), followed by a 06 Subaru STI (Sold the Accord to purchase this vehicle). Then kids happened. Doh! Sold the STI in 2011 and purchased an 03 BMW 530i (This was for my wife to drive). Sold the 330Ci in 2015 and bought my coworkers 2014 Honda Accord LX (with 6spd manual). The last 3 cars I've driven have all been manuals so I was a little sad when I saw Kia didn't offer the Stinger with a manual transmission. After watching the video's of what people have done with Stinger on YouTube I'm actually considering purchasing a vehicle without a manual.

    The one thing that bummed me out is Kia stopped offering the white interior for the Micro Blue GT's in 2019. I really like that color since I live in dirty South and its get HAWT down here. I'm hoping to purchase a Stinger GT, GT1 or GT2 either late this year or in 2020.

    Thank you to the Admins for hosting this forum. I used to moderate a Honda Accord forum many many moons ago, so I know what a pain it can be at times.

    Too funny! I used to own an 02 330Ci and a 03 530i. I can't get over all the bells and whistles Kia offers for prices that are $10k less than a comparable BMW. Which M3 do you own? I've driven the e36 and e46 M3's and they were ton of fun to drive.

    Welcome to the forums CptNut, the best way to get into a Stinger is a lease to own, that's what a lot of people do. Your payment is cheaper and there is lease money you can put down towards the car. When you do pick one up, you will be impressed with it but like any car you can make it better with a few aftermarket parks.

    Being that I live in Arizona, it gets hot here an my car has red happa interior, its not bad at all for the heat. The seat are climate controlled.

    I to grew up with a manual shifted cars. I still love to drive them, but the sequential gear box in the Kia, you have the best of both worlds. That's why I like the GT1 model because you can put the shifter in manual mode an shift with the paddle shifters. You don't have to be in sport mode to use them, you can be in Normal, Smart, Sport and Custom. What ever decision you make you will enjoy the car.

    Again welcome to the forums and when you do pull the trigger on th car make sure you post some pictures.
