2018 car of the year conteners
« on: 11 January 2018, 21:45:57 »

Nothing particularly inspiring here, the best of the bunch IMO seems to be the 3.3l bi-turbo V6 Kia Stinger.

My guess is the Kia Ring-Stinger will depreciate like falling off a cliff. Making it a shrewd used buy.

I like it. :y

It's likely that almost every used V6 Stinger will have been a demonstrator. And they'll be cheap but rare. A bit like the 200 Galant turbos that Mitsubishi 'sold' in the eighties. And the Tagora, especially the V6

The Kia Stinger might be a good future grey import from Japan or Korea.  :)

I wouldn't be against getting one for cheap in the future. Car of the year though, I doubt it. Those are some slim pickings though so who knows.

Suspect no one will buy them though, so rare and keep price a bit higher.

Got a VW, Audi, Skoda or Seat? I have full Diagnostic software VCDS to read and program your car. Need something enabling? Perhaps full diagnostic? Drop me a PM. Can diagnose in Camberley or Osterley Area.

We have a few new 5 series BMWs at work and who ever mapped the auto box in them should be shot in the head, its that bad you end up changing modes frequently to get it to behave....utter crap.

The ride is horribly harsh to (but they are run flats).

Probably the same idiot that did the gearboxes in our two MANs at work... that will cruise at 20 mph in 9th, but can't change down quick enough if you look at the brakes resulting in a kangaroo stop. The only three options being: 1 ride it out and hope it doesn't surge into whatever is ahead, 2 a full on emergency stop resulting in stalling, 3 flick it to neutral.

Using it in manual mode doesn't help as the box physically can't dump the gears quickly enough ::)
