    I ordered it 2 weeks ago, I had to wait while they found the colour I wanted & then they had to fit the Bi-modal exhaust. The first car that I have purchased in 51 years that isn't a V8. I traded an SRT8 for this car it had better be worth it!

    You'll love it. I bought a GT1 on Sunday. I had an Infiniti G35 coupe so my standards are not low. This car is awesome. I don't think the sound will compare to the SRT8, but I am sure your neighbors will be happy
     
  4. Congrats on your new Stinger.

    Seems that if I end up getting mine then it will be delivered to me here in Alice Springs rather than me having to go and collect it from wherever the leasing company buys it from. I guess it will take a month or two to get what we want so doubt we will have it before we go on holiday in 3 weeks time.

    Welcome. I see a few new deliveries in AUS this week.
     
  8. I thought the Bi-modal exhaust came standard on the 2019 GT?

    No, it's an after market product manufactured in Hallam, Victoria, and marketed by Kia.

  10. Well bugger me! I will have to get the leasing company onto it in that case. Thanks for the heads up.

    It's Dealer fitted at $2660 rrp but a few members on East coast have got amazing deals with it included. I love the sound of mine.
     
  12. Well I have the price down to below 59K at the moment so maybe the leasing company can get a better price on the bi-modal.

    That's a really good price but keep negotiating as i don't think a lot have been sold in NT/SA.
     
  14. There are actually 3 here in Alice, a yellow one that had to go to Adelaide to be repainted all done at KIA's expense. I was told it was taken back to bare metal before being repainted at a cost of $19K. KIA also trucked up a loan Stinger for the owner to use whilst theirs was being painted. They trucked it up from Melbourne and it was the one we test drove last week.

    Congrats to both of you on your new Stingers. What part of Aus are you both from? What colours did you get? Can you both stick your general location or State in your profile. It helps when some of the guys on here organise meets/drives.

    I chose my GT2 over a Challenger Scat Pack Widebody. No regrets.

    Hi. A lot of Oz activity especially lately. :D I don't think that the V6 is going to disappoint.

    I’m Rob owner of Car Tint based in Ringwood, Melbourne and I wanted a Kia Stinger in red to emphasise my window tinting business so it was going to be either white or red.
    Having had white (car sold to make way) if I went for the same colour again, it wouldn’t look that hugely different so all the Kia promotional material is on red and the colour is simply stunning in the sun and couldn’t be happier.
