As someone who drove the whole list of these (sans an old amg because nope nope nope on service costs) I can assure you that its the best of all worlds from my stand point. More features than a lexus GS, faster than a q50 red sport, and it still turns heads with the typical “thats a kia?” comment. IF you have the…
They are 18" however I may be wrong and they may 225 square but I’m too lazy to walk out and check
255 I believe
Honestly the front park assist is great in parking lots, and the transmission is programmed well enough that I rarely use the paddles.
I have 18 inch rims on mine, however they are the GT rims so I’m not sure how the 2.0 rims fit.
It is a kia. Also I am a salesperson with a dealer group that has Kia so I can see sales figures for all dealers in the area, at time of filming I had the only GT in my area, however now we have sold a few more.
If I tune the car and do exhaust a plan on picking up a set of summer 19" wheels, and then doing true winters on the stock 18"

Like my old E46, yes.
He’s something, this is the second time I’ve met him. I was also in one of his RCR car meet videos with my E46. Roman is awesome too and they were both a blast to film with, along with the demon owner.
They sell a kit for our USDM cars to cover the cupholders with my trim so I need to get around to that.
It was a normal F30 but had a tune a the lighter exhaust, so it was close to a comp pack. That being said I never looked at that, really the other two big options for me were a GS350 (which is slow as fuck) and a q50 RS, which looks like every moms car I see in my town.
Oh he knows we are talking in his thread too!
See the funny thing is I drove a stick m4 that my dealership just got traded in, and while the transmission was fucking amazing, the car itself was numb and the Kia still felt better, more body roll, but more comfortable and just as fast.
The main problem is when I told him it felt as good to me as my old E46 M3, he said that I was looking at the new M3.
I love it! And he misspoke when he said M3, I had an E46 M3 prior, and looked at this, the GS350, the SS, and the Q50 RS. I picked this because it had more features than the Lexus, and was faster than the rest and more balanced in my opinion. That being said if I would’ve found a purple stick SS I probably would have…
Hey, that’s MY game changer!
As someone who just bought a Stinger GT, and sells the Maserati brand, I can tell you the Kia is actually a nicer car to be in than the Ghibli, mostly because the tech is ripped right out of like a 2012 300C. And while the Ghibli sounds way better, it drives way worse, has a mushy chassis, and isn’t as comfortable on…
All of them. Heated/Cooled seats, LED headlights that corner with the car, Harmon/Kardon Audio, Lane keep assist, heated wheel, 16 way power seats, Nav, Auto/Carplay, you name it.
