Haha you didn't even make it to your first oil change before trading? I will say the scorpion edition spoiler looks good in black but yeah I had a black car once and never again.
Even crazier: got the oil change, got the stock wheels put back on, and then decided I'm taking the Scorpion home. And of course, getting a refund on the service work was part of my deal.

Congrats! Lol that's one hell of an oil change!

Speaking of scorpion edition - black on black is sexy, but I test drove a ceramic silver scorpion with red interior. A winning combo for sure...the black of the scorpion parts really brings out the ceramic silver. Funny because ceramic was originally at the bottom of my list.

Two things irk me about the scorpion edition though. You're paying $1300 and not even getting the original wheels, right? If you itemized that package, the wheel are probably $1000. I could buy some aftermarket wheels and now have 2 sets of wheels, or sell the original and make my money back. Also, the spoiler cuts into the visibility of the rear window which is already poor. But it is sexy, can't deny that.

Side question - were you able to get a discount on the car? The dealer I test drove with wanted $4k markup, totaling $66k OTD. I laughed in his face and walked out. How are they going to mark up the Stinger which is already on the bottom of Kia's sales by almost double of the next worse model - the Niro. There's a reason it's being discontinued...if they didn't sell well before this f&*%ed market, what makes these delusional dealers think they will sell at an even higher price!? Guess they missed economics 101...

I leased a Ceramic Silver Scorpion at MSRP, no mark up. Never thought I would pay MSRP and think I got a good deal. I'm loving it. Sold my 2018 red Stinger GT1 to my son, 33k miles on it.

That's awesome! Yea, there was a mark up on mine, but the whole conversation started out as a total joke. I bought the CS GT2 from the same dealership back in May. It was their very first GT2. So as I was waiting on my oil change and drooling over this Scorpion, I asked the sales lady how much they would give for my GT2 w/ 4000 miles. In less than 24 hours, we had a deal. They gave me $3K over pay off (cash in hand equity), $1500 rebate and took another $1500 off of MSRP. Told them, I'll see you guys by lunch time ;)
