    Yes, I bought a KIA

    A Kia Stinger that is! Took this beauty for a test drive last week and just couldnít give it up. Itís a base AWD GT. 3.3TT with 365 hp & 376 ft-lbs. Only 400 in the States painted Sunset Yellow. Itís a bright color and she really stands out in the sea of black, white and silver cars that dominate American roads. Picked her up Tuesday and swapped my tires out on Friday from the OEM Michelin Super Sport 4+ to Continental DWS 06 cause it snows in Michigan.

    At the dealer:




    Home:




    Did a good interior cleaning and clean/protected the seats with Megs Rich Leather Gold Class but havenít touched the outside since itís rained everyday since I bought it. Hopefully I can get a RW wash in today and get a temporary coating of wax on till the spring. I definitely plan to get a ceramic coating for the car.

    Re: Yes, I bought a KIA

    That's a hatchback, right? A number of 5-door hatchbacks have become available here recently and it's amusing to me the cyclical nature of that (and even of 3-door hatches), at least in a fastback (since VW Golf's and SUV's have been a fairly consistent hatchback presence in a different roofline).
