    Sal has previously posted this re: post counts and conversations.


    So like Sal says, just keep posting. Here’s an idea. Start a thread about how lame the OEM KIA badges are and how you can’t wait to start rebadging. That’ll get your post count up in no time. :devil::p

    The spammers always spoil it for the rest of us!

    I like the KIA badges as it make the car a bit of a sleeper. So many people have no idea the car goes so fast, until I take them for a ride. Great shock value

    I have got my exhaust upgraded as part of edition the standard option- GT night Sky- I had driven the car for 5 days with standard exhaust, it is much much nicer and lots of fun with new noise.
    Took dealer 4 hours to fit it, however I got another stinger GT as a loan car on that day.
    The bimodal is expensive but definitely worse the money you pay.

    I agree in my book an aftermarket exhaust is a must the stock is eerily quite for a performance vehicle. Nice choice of Colour btw:D. Where in NSW are you?

    How can you tell the new bi-modal exhaust from the older bi-model exhaust?

    Are they just identical, except for the wiring?

    The old method is that they had to pull the dash out to do tbe wiring. But apparently not with the new one.

    So my bimodal exhaust passenger side valve is not working again. Only had the passenger side actuator replaced about 2 months ago because it failed. Like before the driver side works fine.

    Taking it back to KIA to fix. I hope this isn't going to be a continual thing.

    Have you heard of anyone else having the actuator fail?

    I hope you can get that sorted out as it the most expensive exhaust money can buy for the stinger and it should just work!

    So if I get the exhaust done, how can I tell if the dealer had to put out the dash?

    I just want to be sure after, that they did put in the new exhaust and not the old exhaust.

    As far as I'm aware the old bimodal which I have is plugged in the front fuse box on the driver's side.
    The new one is plugged into the rear fuse box located in your car's boot.
