This section is for posting about regional-specific things like Stinger clubs, events, local vendor or dealer recommendations, KiaStinger.com member sightings, etcetera... In other words, I do NOT want people to need to scour through several different sections to find answers about their heads up display. That's why there's a section dedicated specifically to discussions like that. THANK YOU!

    New CT member here who's taking inventory of a new GT1 on Monday and just wanted to check in. I live in New Britain and work out of Waterbury, hopefully I could meet some of you guys and talk cars.

    Thank you! I'm picking up the white version. White with hits of carbon fiber is the look I want to go for on this car and I see there are some nice options out there.

    From my experience last year I can say it does very well even on the stock all seasons. You will not have a problem getting going or turning. I would say the biggest issue you will find is in braking, where the weight of the car becomes very apparent. I found myself sliding to a stop often. So in short it's great un snow, but get snow tires

    I currently have 18s with all seasons but these will become my winters and I'll get 19s for summer. I've ridden on sport/summer tires on my STi the past two winters (not the smartest idea) so these all weathers should be a bit of a step up :D. I do appreciate the braking advice, I almost forgot how heavy the car is and how long it would take to stop.
