Was just wondering if anyone had a 8sp,as Kia say no. Did a 200k trip,averaged 4.6lt per 100ks. Not complaining, just normal around town, 6-7lts. Do not understand why they keep denying it is not a 8spd. Cheers Enjoy your GT.Hey mate, what exactly are you interested in with the question, my GT has 8 speeds, and the gear changing is seamless and super smooth, having the 8 gearbox has the car purring on idle at 110 giving a really nice fuel economy of 6.1 K/L when I took my car down south.
