Hi everyone! I just picked up a Indigo Edition Stinger GT after much deliberation to replace my aging 2010 WRX.

Never thought I'd ever consider anything made by Kia but I guess that's a testament of how much they have improved over the past 20 years.

Anyway it's late, I'll try to post some pics of my new car tomorrow.

Beautiful! The color; not your parking acumen; you must do better. Hah. :p And pick end stalls, far away from where others park. You'll thank yourself sooner rather than later.

This was end of day when I was returning my id card ( customer has a rather large campus) no one was parked in the lot till right after I parked of course. I do try to park far away from people. I managed to make it 10 years with my WRX without it getting door dings. :p

I see my comment above has caused a negative reaction. I never meant to offend!
Gee Seventy and I are fans of the KIA badge. Wear it proudly. No offense taken, trust me. :D (that said, I have to admit that for nearly two years I have had my KIA badges covered by "K" skins; not because I don't like the KIA badge, but because it is fun to mess with people who can't figure out who makes this amazingly attractive car; I'll pull the "K" skins when I'm tired of the fun, or when they start to look tatty)

No Worries. I have swapped my badges out for 'E's. Even with the Kia Badges on, people weren't sure what it was and now, they have no idea.

I am not ashamed to drive a Kia, I am proud to drive a Stinger, but I do think that the 'standard' Kia oval could have been done better. I have the 2nd gen 'E' in dark chrome and it looks 110% better than original.

Each to their own!

The oval is a nod to Kia and Ford Motor Company's long ago association building vehicles in S. Korea; this got Kia as a car manufacturer started. Liking or disliking is all subjective anyway. I don't, for instance, think that the new "KIA" logo is any improvement over the current KIA badge; it looks like a "KN".
