I am pretty sure almost all of us at least once came across a stranger that wanted to show their love about our Stinger.
Any experience you would like to share?
Mine:
  1. While I was drying and polishing the windows after a car wash, a guy passing by went to park his car and then came to me, asking what car it was. "I want to buy a car to my son: is this one a good one? It looks so beautiful!" (Me: smiling)
  2. On the highway, from the mirror saw a car approaching quite fast on the left lane (I was in the middle one, relaxed driving): when he came to my side, turned its window down, gave me a big thumbs up, and ran away. (Me: smiling)
  3. On the freeway, I was on the left lane (again relaxed driving) and a guy passed me on the right, slowing down, looking at me while saying something to the other occupants. While he was completing the manoeuvre, I noticed a kid standing on the back sit, with his face attached to the window, looking at me like I was Superman. (Me: smiling)
  4. Stopped at Tim Hortons where a group of Harley-Davidson guys were chatting. Once I got off the car, one of them approached me saying: "That's a cool car. Does the sunroof open like a panoramic one? Can I see it?". Had to make him happy, turn the engine on and open the sunroof.
  5. At a gas station (typical place), a young guy came to me and went to the back of the car to see what was it: "Oh, this must be a new KIA. From far it looked like an Alfa Romeo... "
  6. More to come, for sure...

Standing near a Tim Hortons drive thru, two guys in the line on a truck and chatting:
"... It's a Kia... Mmm looks like a Porsche... It got Brembo breaks..."

I got asked on Thursday night what model Lexus it was. I pointed at the wheel caps. "Oh, a Kia? Really? When did they start making cars like *this*?"

At a local Car Club cruise:
While leaving the parking lot - "It's got Brembo's!"
Two guys walking by on sidewalk - "Look, a Stinger!"

No kidding... Sometimes I freak out when people park beside me and they open their door without any care. That's why I try to park always very far from humans ๐Ÿ˜

After 6 months of ownership, I just noticed my front license plate looked funny. Upon closer inspection, I saw the top corner of the plate (passenger side) was bent. Then I noticed 3 white scuff marks on the bumper (my car is Aurora Black) going from the plate towards the outside of the car. Dang!

I straightened out the plate with my fingers, and then got some detail spray going on the scuff marks (expecting it to do nothing).

To my amazement, the scuff marks disappeared with no apparent damage to the paint. Whew! Guess the license plate took the brunt of it.
