    Welcome aboard! Glad to have someone from the Fatherland on the forum. I recently sent pictures of my new Stinger 2.0T to friends in Bad Kissingen. They indicated that they thought it was going to be popular there, particularly at the price in €.

    Thank you :) Yes i think it will get popular once you see some cars on the road. But at the Moment, Germans are still scared to buy KIA's because of the unreliability 10 years ago o_O And the Germans are like, let's Support und own Country, so the only brands we buy are German once. (even though we all know german cars get build everywhere but not in Germany :laugh:)

    @Schpok: You‘re not the only one. ;-) I am from NRW (near duesseldorf) and I‘ve placed my order for a Stinger GT, too. I am looking forward to proudly present my new car to every german badge lover even if they probably won‘t get why I have bought that wonderful car. In Germany most people are not very open minded and for them it counts more to drive a prestigious car that looks very expensive than owning something special. I don‘t care - the less people will drive a Stinger the more I will enjoy it. I‘ve bought a Mazda RX-8 many years ago and these days I also enjoyed to drive a very rare car.

    Finally After a 6 months Wait I picked up my Brand new stinger on friday :D

    This Weekend I already drove 320km
    And I Love every Single km with it.
    The lane keep Assistent is woth the Money for sure :laugh: it's Perfect to get used to the width of the car

    Sadly there was a pruduction error on one of my wheels, where it looked like the wheel got scrached and repainted. Lucky me I noticed it Even before I drove of the lot. My car is now back at the Dealer to fix the wheel.
    As Exchange I got a 2018 sorento fully loadet, not to Bad for a few Days image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    It looks great! My friends from Bad Kissingen visited me in Dallas the end of March and agreed the Stinger is an excellent handling auto and pretty amazing for the price. Mine is black also...you made an excellent choice!!!! Congratulations!!!!!

    @Schpok: Careful of the width! For sure! It'll catch you when you park, trying to get snuggly with the curb (and far away from the car to your side). I KNOW this from aggravating experience. Hopefully you will not add more "dings" to your gorgeous wheels!
