1. PLEASE! It is VERY important that this area is not used for the discussion of technical issues with your Stinger. This section is for posting about regional-specific things like Stinger clubs, events, local vendor or dealer recommendations, KiaStinger.com member sightings, etcetera... In other words, I do NOT want people to need to scour through several different sections to find answers about their heads up display. That's why there's a section dedicated specifically to discussions like that. THANK YOU!
Hey! I see you! Please take two seconds to sign up! We'd love to have you as a member of our Kia Stinger club. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain... :)

    Following an interesting discussion with our North American bretheren a poignant point was made is this a Cultural thing?
    a poll may indicate whether we do.

    As pointed out they also have extreme heat conditions in areas but aren't overly enamoured with this product.

    Wouldn't drive without a dashmat, had a dashmat in my 2004 VZ Commodore since brand new, and the dash underneath is like new still.

    Thought you would have gone with PPF but glad wrap is much cheaper.

    No dash mats required a good UV protection spray and wipe applied every 3 or 4 months will protect it for the life of the car. Dash mats are so 1970's:p

    When I was 18 (33 years ago) I bought my grandfather’s 4cyl VC Commodore off him as my first car. It had dashmats. I took them out, threw them away and have never bought dashmats ever since.

    I grant you they have improved in design over the years since my first experience but you haven’t showed us your rear dash mats where your bowls hat sits. :p
     
  16. Well I have owned a Toyota Prado since new in 2007 here in Alice and everyone kept telling me to get a dashmat but I never have. The UV is a real killer out here so I might get one for the Stinger, might have to invest in some armpit shorts as well to go along with it. lol Oh and a terry toweling hat. lol
