    That's called "The Power to Suprise"... The Stinger always makes me smile, as little as just talking about it !!

    Anyways, Gongrats on your purchase, or as we say here - Mabrook.

    Sorry guys, I have been away for awhile and off the grid. Lol, my Stinger did replace the 2014 SX Turbo Optima I had. That car was also in mint condition and has already been assigned to a new owner.. I wanted to say, I am in love with this car, but.... I am noticing a couple small chips, or paint issues on the front clip, and a very small chip on the hood. These are hardly noticeable at all, but... I only have 1700 miles on the car... I am wondering what is going on here ?? I am extremely OCD about a large gap while following other cars, so I am wondering what is going on? I did hear something hit the car the other day, and I am wondering if a small piece of debris hit the front end? I have been monitoring the Kia Stinger “Paint issues “. Was hoping I wasn’t gonna be in this group.. I guess time will tell. I have the Mico Blue if I failed to mention it in a prior post. Stay safe everyone.

    Yes it is!!! People won’t tell you this, but the paint has different shades. In the bright Sun, the vehicle has a shade of Purple inter blended with the Blue.... on a over cast day, the car has more of Mat Blue tinge to it. I absolutely love the car though!! The lateral G force that it can pull on aN off ramp is FREAKING INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!! I am gonna put the Rear Eibach bar on it soon as well, they say it does a Ton for the car in improvement! I have always added a rear Sway bar on all my cars!! This usually is the biggest bang for buck improvement you can do when it comes to handling upgrades! It’s really even not necessary, the car is stupid in curves now anyways!! Lol

    Welcome Kevin! No one is bringing “it” up but blue is a paint challanged color. Dare I say, don’t cover it yet. Open a claim immediately with Kia via the Stinger 800 number. They’ll tell you what to do. Do that before investing in any paint protection.

    I’m right with you. I’ve lost count how many people have stopped me or pulled up next to me and wanted to talk about the Stinger so we’re not the only ones. ;)

    Sounds good! I will call them and see what they say.. get it on record... I wanted to tell anyone that is on the fence about buying this car.... I have had all kinds of sports cars... all heavily modded and some pro tuned... I am SERIOUSLY IMPRESSED With this car!!! My SX Optima was tuned By LAP3USA.com. And I am waiting on the company to release the Stinger Tune!! It’s over 100+ additional whp for those that don’t know.. I am in constant contact With David Chung the Lap3 rep.....great guy and always honest!! On a side note, I still have a BRAND NEW lap 3 Module Tune for the Optima Platform. Someone please help me sell it!! Lol. Has to be reset by Lap3, but it’s still gonna be cheaper then new purchase.

    I don't know anything about mods, if it is for a 2.0 sx turbo would it work on the 2.0 Stinger turbo?
