    You could make this a sticky and compile a list of links to threads about the most asked questions.

    For instance; intake comparison thread, exhaust thread, 1/4 mile thread, JB4 thread, Piggyback vs ECU thread, wheel thread, brake shake thread, paint issues thread, etc.

    For each of those, there are already "masterclasses" as you put it. Compiling them in one place and making it a sticky could cut back on some of the repetitive discussions that take place.

    OK--I'm a newbie, and I have a question.

    I just discovered recently that Hyundai/KIA don't allow their "class-leading" 10yr/100k mile warranty to be transferred when the vehicle is sold. Can anyone confirm this?

    This was a real gut-punch, because I've been eyeing the GT for awhile now and my budget simply won't allow me to buy new. And I felt the 100k mile warranty made a used one very attractive.

    But, it appears that a certified pre-owned does get the full warranty, so there is that.

    I believe it is halved (at 60K miles, five years) for subsequent owners of a used vehicle. And you can always get an extended warranty, of course. And the extended warranty is transferable. Is Kia's Warranty Transferable?

    Yes - buying a used Stinger would result in a 5 year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty instead of the 10/100,000. There are third party insurance brokers who will sell you extended warranties that go beyond 100,000 miles. That might not be a bad idea, given the temptation of the original owner to fully utilize the generous horsepower and torque that Kia bestowed on the Stinger GT.

    Aussie GT front headlights move in the direction your steering, like around a corner or bend, and move when you first turn on the lights. So YES, they do manoeuvre, I have tried that side by side action, like what the V8 Supercars do to warm up their tyres during, I guess their warm up lap.. You can see the headlights swaying from one side to the other following the sideways motion. Cool tech.

    Yes you are correct & they are cool tech, but each headlight is over $5K to replace....ouch.

    I thought I saw if you get CPO then you do get the longer warranty here in the US but CPO costs more.

    The reduced warranty should not deter you from buying, however. The engineering that went into the design to achieve a 100K mile warranty means 99% of all cars produced must exceed over 200K miles to ensure the warranty claims won't kill the company ;)
