Default saw another K900 today

Saw a black K900 at the Phoenix VA hospital today. That is the second K900 I've seen this week in Phoenix, AZ.
No wait it is the third one this week, saw a reflection of mine in a store window.
Very few in dealer stock here, could be they are waiting for the 2016, but think it has something to do with KIA not advertising the K900

[QUOTE=Gene;12889]Saw a black K900 at the Phoenix VA hospital today.

I have heard several arguments to why that could be, the same for the all electric version of the Soul we have as well.

There is about 4 in our area, including ours. I have talked to one owner and we purchased a used one that was owned by the dealership's owner.

Could it be that not all salespeople in all dealership is qualified to sell the K9 or all shops to service them?

Only two kia dealerships I know of in the Phoenix, az area who can work on or sell the new K900's
The dealership I go to has one salesmen who can sell them and one service advisor just for the K900.
One tech to work on the K900, they have to take special training just for the K900.
They get no advertising for the K900

2016 K900 just arrived at our dealership in SC.. Basically the same design.. Taillights are a bit different and they now have a cheesy chrome front grille.. Also V6 now available in the states.. Fully loaded 56k for the V6 haven't got a 16 V8 yet... Will update as they come in

I seen 2 other K900 in my city, which isn't too bad since KIA only sold 36 in Canada in 2015 compared to USA 2524. Very poor advertisement on their part, and the Canadian Kia website is a joke in the K900 section. Kia USA site try to sell you the car ours is like a wikipedia.

I have seen 2 K900 around my town here in Orange County, CA. One white and one black. I changed the emblem to the original KIA emblem in Korea. The black one was identical as mine. I was smiling as you do not see K900 often. I like to drive a car that people do not see often. Since I have it now for 3 weeks, I want to play with it by modifying things... Not crazy like putting a spoiler that is bigger than the car or an exhaust that can fit my head... I like something classy although can put something extra that will make you smile. Exhaust System is my first priority... Thinking about blacking out the whole thing too... It is exciting when you have a new toy and planning what you are going to do with it. My other cars had plenty and do not want to do anymore crazy things....

My K900 is on Sports mode at all times and love the heavy beast accelerates at the signal... Something you do not expect but you have IT !!!!!

Driving is FUN !!!
I want my first KIA K900 to be fun too....

I havent seen any in my area. I almost bought the BMW 750LI but I sold myself on the K900 because of the cost of ownership. So glad I did! Lots of compliments and I have the only one in my area. Every 5th car out here is a BMW. I've made a few mods but I love it.

I saw one in Los Angeles and had to stop and say hello since I literally have never seen on on the road before.
