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!

    Hi All

    I'm ready to take the plunge and purchase the Stinger GT, tossing up if I should wait for the MY19 or buy the MY18 now.

    Apparently the MY19 will be slightly more expensive or have less bargaining power, Michelin tyres and a Stainless Steel luggage pallet.

    Appreciate peoples thoughts

    Thanks

    Hi Shannon I'm currently driving a 335i pushing out 550hp on 24psi, so funnily enough I'm actually going to enjoy it less until I carry out a few mods.

    The BMW has finished its lease so time to go but no major hurry

    Do a deal on an MY18 runout model, maybe more bang for your buck.

    I would get a 2018, sounds like car prices might go up with all this “tariff” war that’s going on.

    Well no trade will give you more leverage on your purchase price, dealer cannot fudge the figures hidden in that. Set yourself a limit & be prepared to walk away, remember there are plenty of dealers to take your cash.

    Check to see if there are rebates in Australia. In the US it is not unusual to see large purchase and lease rebates. Some as high as $7k - $8k. including dealer discounts.

    at $61k your around 10% cheaper than what us early adopters paid last year and all had to wait 4 or 5 months for delivery.

    Anything near 60k with a shorter delivery just get it and enjoy it now, that a great deal.

    What did you end up paying D-C if you don't mind me asking? I'm looking at biting the bullet in the next few days myself.
