    Never seen a new Stinger with black wheels. No location info.

    Guessing someone bought a used car that's been modified.

    I've seen new Stingers that have been modified by dealers, including wheel swap/powdercoat.

    Never seen a dealer swap a 3.3tt into a 2.0 Premium though. :laugh:

    until OP can post pics I think its safe to assume he may have been bamboozled or the dealer was not educated between the trim levels.

    The door handles, side vent, lack of red caliper, and no "vent" on the rear fender all point to this being a 2.0t. If they sold it to you as a 3.3 you might want to seek a lawyer and see what your options are.

    There is a suspicious absence of red "X"s throughout the thread. You may be on to something.

    I ran into this sort of situation a lot when I bought my '18 GT2 at the end of '17. Dealers were calling all trims "Stinger GT".

    There's no way that the info on the window stickers could legitimately steer a buyer astray. If the dealer put on the wrong info they either did it with malice aforethought, or out of incompetence. Either way, the buyer will win any legal battle hands down. And it should be an exceedingly brief battle at that.

    I’ve seen shady dealers (actual ford dealership... not the dime a dozen no name used lots) slap special badging / stickers implying a v6 mustang was a gt. Sad. I’d punch them in the GD giblets.

    It looks like Flowbucket's account is US based, so there's no way his could be confused with a GT-Line unless he went north across the border to purchase from a Canadian dealer. If this post is legit, seek out the advice of a lawyer ASAP.
