    Farewell RS fam

    As much as I enjoy(ed) the RS, my kids are growing and I require a larger conveyance. The community here and on FB is awesome, so I will definitely miss that.

    I moved up/on to a 2019 Kia Stinger GT (GT2 trim to be exact) in ceramic silver with red Nappa leather interior. I must admit, this car is VERY impressive. From the technology, to the performance, they really have a platform to build on...and snag some Audi and BMW drivers.

    Did you trade the RS in?

    Nice car, congrats... I hear they are fun! AWD?

    How is the ‘no manual’ working out for you so far?

    Why not a Genesis G70 with a 6spd?

    Not judging, just curious.

    Love that gray color!

    The Stinger has been on my short list for awhile.


    Perhaps a used one will find it's way into my garage eventually.

    Yes, AWD. HUGE rebate going right now for a lease.

    I'm enjoying not having to wear out my left leg during my work commute. I have the paddles if I want to enjoy the full rev range.

    The G70 is nice, and possibly cheaper if you option it correctly. But the Stinger has more leg room and I like the aggressive look more than the Genesis' more tame front end.

    I wish you all the luck sir and safe travels.

    I would have picked up a Stinger if I was not able to get the last LE NB in SoCal.

    Hope to see you around here, when you get board sometime!

    For @DeltaT who is at my house helping me today: "Yes, it's been a pleasure, Stiletto. Hope the Stinger works out as you move on down that road." Jim
