2020 Kia Stinger GT2
#1
Just purchased a 2020 GT2, black with the burgundy interior. Wow, the car is stunning! However, I live in Michigan and the black color does show everything. Is it too late to apply some of the Wolfgang Concours Series WG-5500 Deep Gloss Paint Sealant? Or do I just have to wait for a day where the weather isn't too bad? I've got some Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Detailer as well to finish it off with.

Also, just purchased the JB4 tuner with the wireless adapter, the Stillen AWD/RWD [3.3TT] Hi-Flow Air Intake Kit - w/ Oil Filter, and threw in some new Denso High Performance Spark Plugs. I've done quite a bit of research and it seems like these upgrades, Tuner with Air Intake & new spark plugs, seem to be the best bang for your buck as far as mods go. Is this a good place to start? Any other recommendations?

I'd like to maybe go w/ ARK performance GriP exhaust at some point, along with some ark catless secondary downpipes, I just get a little leery with putting anything in my car that could be deemed "illegal" or could mess with any warranty's my car has. Thoughts?

Anyways, thanks for reading to this point. I've been lurking in the shadows contemplating this purchase for a while, but so far I'm glad I pulled the trigger!

Welcome and congrats on the purchase! I think you'll enjoy every minute behind the wheel, but try not to get bitten by the mod bug. Trust me, once you start adding power, you'll just want more and more. 😂

I have the ark catback and to me and my ears, it's the best exhaust for the 3.3. I have had so many compliments on how good it sounds over the years. If you go that route just make sure you give it time to break in; at first it doesn't sound that great but once it's broken in it sounds perfect.

Good luck and if you have questions, fire away. 👍

Awesome! From all the videos I've watched, the ARK Catback definitely sounds the best IMO as well. Thanks for the insight!
