Default Good news & Bad news

I may leave the forum soon!
May stay on to keep up on things and see what is upcoming
I traded in the K900 and the Cadenza for a Genesis G90.
Been with KIA for 6 vehicles now but got a great deal.
Also there are just so many benefits and advantages to the
Genesis at this point in time.
Hope KIA will follow their lead and the new K900 in a
couple of years gets like Genesis on the extras

Congrats Gene; you have been a great resource to all of us for the K900 and the Cadenza. I admire your style and agree it's awesome to just go for it and enjoy these neat cars. Come back once in a while and give us your thoughts on the G90; I LOVE it from the online pics. I may just go for a pre-owned one in a couple years when I sell my K900 to my nephew who wants it.
Drive safe!

Congrats on the G90 Gene. I hope we'll still see you around from time to time, and I for one would love to hear what you have to say regarding why you went to the G90, how it compares to the K900, etc. I'm with Dave H, from what I've seen online, the G90 is an amazing car. Not giving up my K900 any time soon though

Wow wow Wow Gene, so soon!!

Congrats on getting the new ride, if you got the turbo model, you should definitely have a look at the LAP3 Uncle Chip Performance Tune we sell.

It doesn't require the changing of the spark plugs, or anything else. Just plug it in and go!

Well, I hope to still see you around the forum here, if you have been a great asset, and have helped out tremendously.

Now let's see some pics of the new ride!!

First I want to say I like the outside style of the K900 better.
In side the G90 has it beat all to h---.
Check out the engine V8, says it's the same but even the dip stick
is located different than the K900.
Nice cross bracing and dual air filters

Nice detail inside.
This is the front inside.
stainless steel speaker covers not plastic
Like the new info system, only bad thing
no touch screen. I didn't have that in 2015 K900 either
Menu is so much easier to use than K900

Wife decided we would go with the G90 because of the rear seats for the grand children.

I went along with the wife as insurance is cheaper for this than new K900.
Got as good a deal on a 2018 as I could on a 2017 K900.
G90 has better benefits and features. I understand the 2019 K900
will have about the same features as the G90.
I get free for the whole 3 year lease
Sirius XM
Map updates
all maintenance oil changes and even wear items, brake pads, wiper blades, etc. everything.
NO APPLE CAR PLAY
genesis connect so I can start car, set AC temp, geo fencing. car locating, on smart phone.
for maintenance they come pickup the car and leave me a new G90 to drive.
break down protection on highway
excess wear and tear protection plan, don't pay for scrapes dings, or even tires when turned in
Has lane keep assist not just warning
emergency stopping
pedestrian emergency stopping.
It appears to have everything the new 2019 K900 has and more
Then to the 2018 K900 isn't even out yet here. let alone the 2019.


This does leave us with only one car and I'm thinking about the new stinger. for me
