Took a trip to Mexico for some digs and rolls. Struggled a little with getting the digs right, but the rolls couldn't have been any closer. Stay tuned for the rematch!

2018+ Stinger Billet Aluminum Chassis Brace







Product Description

Billet aluminum chassis brace for the 2018+ G70 will fit both the 2.0 and 3.3 models.
Made in Korea by SYSTEM-Upgrade, the brace is 5mm (0.2 inches) thick aluminum plating that has been machined. There are spacers behind each bolt hole so that the entire length of the brace will sit flush against both sides of the chassis, providing the best reinforcement support, stiffening the chassis and providing a better ride and more precise handling.
No modifications will need to be made to the car as existing holes in the chassis are used.

Genesis G70 vs BMW 3 Series vs Kia Stinger: Sport Sedan Comparison


Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Video URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7p7k3Xu4s6A


There's a new BMW 3 Series on the way, but for now, can this current model still set the benchmark? The BMW 3 Series is the sports sedan that supported a whole brand and launched an entire market segment, with countless of other automakers chasing that perfect blend of luxury and fun that the 3 always managed to perfect. But in recent years, the 3 Series identity has been questioned. Some say BMW has lost its way, focusing on its SUV lineup rather than its sporty sedans. With exhaust notes pumping through the speakers, an odd clumsiness in the steering and the overall cars feeling heavier than agile BMW certainly has changed its approach.
Beyond that, other automakers have stolen some of the spotlight. Mercedes has put a beautiful cabin in its C-Class, and Audi has some impressive technology to wow its customers. BMW may have even lost its edge in terms of sportiness, as we’ve found the new Genesis G70 feeling more and more agile and fun to drive.

Id like to see how those races would have played out if the SS was an auto or had a better driver (from the sounds he is shifting slow AND short)
However, I know that stock for stock, the Kia is probably going to be faster, esp at elevation, also Kia definitely underrated the advertised HP of the car.
I just hated the interior, and wary of the longevity and reliability of another high strung turbo motor.

I have been following this thread, and I have to admit these stingers have TONS of potential.

Wary of which engine in the Stinger? The 3.3 or the 2.0?

Both of which are not "new" to either Hyundai/KIA

Well, IMO the higher HP/liter is in a motor the more likely it is to be unreliable long term, esp with forced induction motors, sure it vaires engine to engine, thats my general consensus though.
Im curious to see how long these modified GTs last on stock internals.

2018 Kia Stinger GT Long-Term Review Update | What living with the Stinger is like

The Stinger GT is compelling in many different ways




You're going to like looking at it, and everyone else will too

Man, this car is slick. It's long and low with curves in all the right places. Kia toed the line between in-your-face sportiness and luxury with every design decision on this car. I don't often feel the urge to look back at a car as I walk away, but the Stinger has a way of drawing my eye back to it wherever I go. The bright red paint might be partially responsible for this, but I've found I'm not alone.

Everywhere I drive, this car turns heads and brings about inquisitive stares from onlookers — the Kia badge just causes brows to furrow deeper. Never in history have random passersby been this interested in a Kia. It makes sense, though. We don't often see completely new, from-the-ground-up sports sedans these days. The Stinger's fastback shape just makes it even more enticing and refreshingly different. Noticing the sidewalk interest in a car like the Stinger gives me a glimmer of hope for other great sedans to make it through the crossover-apocalypse



Big car, but a small back seat

The usable space in the rear seat runs counter to how long and large the car looks. First off, the way the door is shaped makes for a narrow space to slide your body through. It's wide on top but narrows closer to the ground. That's no problem for a young and limber person such as myself, but less flexible folk may find it annoying. With the seat positioned for my 5-foot-10-inch frame, rear legroom is a bit scarcer than I would have thought. Throwing kids back there would be fine, but it still came off as one of the larger disappointments in my book.

You'll enjoy the cargo space, though. Hatches are almost always more utilitarian than sedans with trunks, and this trend continues for the Stinger. Loading and unloading is an easy task, and you can shove a ton of stuff back there. Somewhat limited visibility through the short rear window from the driver seat is the only downside of the rear hatch design. It has a dual personality

This car firmly plants itself onto the list of ideal daily drivers. Leave it in Comfort mode, turn the Harman Kardon stereo up, and relax on your way to the office. Twist the dial over to Sport, and you'll blow everybody else away getting on the highway as you head home. Like we said in our last long-term update, the Stinger is the perfect GT car, and we stand by that.

You can use it as a backroad scalpel on weekends. However, I wouldn't go so far as to say it handles like a sports car. It's damn good, and the Brembos hold up to a real beating ... but the heft and large footprint of the car hold it back just a bit on technical roads. This Stinger GT is AWD; perhaps the rear-wheel-drive version would provide that extra zing of fun I was wanting.

The key fob deserves a shoutout

Not many key fobs are worth talking about, and if they are, it's normally only brought up for chastisement. The Stinger's key is arguably the coolest one out there. Its design and button placement make me feel like I'm hitting the trigger to activate an explosive device every time I lock the car. Making a fun, yet functional key like this one is a great example of Kia sweating the small stuff on this car. Why shouldn't a device you interact with on a daily basis be something that brings a smile to your face? Fuel is cheap; you'll want it to stay that way

Our Stinger GT drinks premium fuel and gets mileage that corresponds with its 365 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. I managed to average just under 23 mpg on a highway road trip from Detroit to Buffalo. This was acceptable, but most of the time, our city commuting has resulted in numbers below the official EPA rating of 19 mpg. It's a quick car; you're going to want to put your foot in it. Just know you're going to be feeling some pain if and when fuel prices head north again.
