Hmm, you guys are doing a pretty good job of talking me out of the 2.0 Stinger. I might have to start dreaming of the 3.3 version.

Jeff, what creature comforts are given up with the Stinger? The only things I can think of at the moment are dual vs single sunroof, and analog clock in the dash.

The biggest thing that kept me away from the 3.3T in the G70/G80 was insurance. USAA was going to raise my rates by an extra $1300 per 6 months.

If you live in a warmer climate, the turbo spool time won't be an issue for you. 15F and a short 3 mile drive were not a good combo. But all warmed up and in Sport mode, she was a breeze to drive. I occasionally miss getting thrown back in the seat on a good pedal push.
