First Stinger hits Atlanta

StingerForums.com - The Largest Kia Stinger Forum, Community And Owner's Club


Got a call from my guy that a red RWD v6 has arrived. It was being prepped for showroom display only at this point. Said I could drive it around the parking lot but it won't be insured for the street just yet.

Might have to go take a look tomorrow!

Actually, turns out they're at many dealers now. 299 were imported from Korea, they can't be driven - no US EPA approval, but can be displayed.

Pics on FaceBook, but anyone should be able to view them:

I hope EPA approval doesn't prove to be a problem

Currently, all the new MB AMG E63 S 600+ hp four door sedans (at least those destined for Canada) are sitting in a warehouse in Halifax on the east coast because of an undisclosed regulatory issue and have been sitting there since at least April. I know someone still waiting for his and is none too thrilled with the situation.

I hope the Stinger doesn't run into something like this.

Nah - it's just that they weren't built to US regulations, ECU and emissions stuff - they have the Korean KIA emblem on the steering wheel, and everything is metric.
