[MENTION=1698]RockyJodr124[/MENTION] I want a piggyback at some
Point but want to do
Other modifications first.

Did you buy it online or get in town somewhere? I’m still looking for a good shop.
[MENTION=788]KamikazeGT[/MENTION] I payed 350. It’s not a great job up close but I didn’t want them to pull the headliner to remove the fin so I told them just to do the best they could.

Other place I went quoted me 800 but that was with removing the fin. I went with cheep option...... probably end up getting it redone this summer. Always happens when I try to save money :)

$350 is a killer deal.

New Colorado stinger owner.

Hello Colorado,
I just picked up my 19 GT1 in ceramic silver yesterday. The guys at Peak Kia were awesome.
I like the ride compared to the Fiesta ST I traded for this.
I have had a possible issue already though. It was cold last night and I took my brother to class and so we idled in the lot for nearly 2 hours. It started smelling like antifreeze but never got above normal op temp.

Welcome to group.

I sit in my car idling quite often because I like to listen to sports radio during lunch. I have never had any issues like that.

Did it ever idle rough or change at all ?

I don’t know cars at all so I can’t give any thoughts on why or what but interested in seeing what others say.

If you don’t get any good replies try posting your experience in a different thread.

Congrats and welcome to the group. If it's parked in the garage then try keeping an eye on the floor for any leaks.

Slowhite,
The car seemed to run fine. Smelled it thru the vents slightly. After leaving the lot and driving on the highway for a bit and then getting on it once there was a strong quick smell of antifreeze, and temp has not exceeded normal. I read thru the break in period and stated idling is not good for a cold engine. But the car had been running for some time before idling so it was not warming up.
I may call the dealer if I smell it again or if the temp moves up at all.
I hope I didn't get a lemon...

For piece of mind I would take it to the dealer to have it look at, call ahead and reserve a loaner.

Yeah I agree that it might be a good idea to take it to the dealer to get it looked at.
If it was me I would probably wait to see if it happened again just because going to dealer can be a pain.
