New Owner-2019 VIP
Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. I just took delivery of a 2019 VIP in Lakestone. I believe we got a pretty good deal at 50k considering the original sticker price was 66k. It was between this and a Stinger GT2 and we opted for the K900 due to the advanced technology and overall better vehicle for MN winters and road trips. I'm waiting to hear back from my insurance agent so I can get some hard numbers on what this is going to cost to insure, but they originally quoted me a $40/mo increase over my Volvo S40 based on the year and model of the car. I'm also looking into all-weather floor mats and Tuxmat and Weathertech seem to be the only games in town when it comes to exact fit mats. Overall, I'm very impressed with the car. My local KIA dealership (non-selling K900) assured me that they could handle some of the maintenance (oil changes, tire rotations, etc.) and the K900 carrying dealership (45 miles away) can handle everything else. Honestly, if it wouldn't have been heavily discounted from the get go we probably would've went with the Stinger, but since the price was similar I think it's a much better overall vehicle. Thanks for starting this forum and hopefully it'll become a great resource for any future questions I may have.
