My New Whip....

So this has been a loooong time comin'...... I have owned Hondas' since I got my license and over the years 15 different Hondas' exclusively. I'm done with all that. I'm sick and tired of Honda. The company is going in the wrong direction and their **** is boring. Yup, I said it. I don't mean to offend, they're nice looking cars. but damn, how much FWD can you take?!?!?! Small displacement, and yeah for a while I was impressed with dynomite in a small package. But what does Honda offer now that is exciting?!?!?! Why do I have to buy a brand new car and DUMP thousands into it to make it HALF of what I want? Honda makes rolling appliances now exclusively just like toyota.

Thats why I jumped ship.....

Honda had the NSX which was WAAAAAY Overpriced.
The S2000 which was small, too narrowly focused and ***** like.(Unless you dumped thousands into it and not to mention a 2JZGTE.)
and the Civic Type-R which never made it to the states.

....I drive a 2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8 now and I'm like **** yeah....It's about time someone brought back what a sports car should be at a price thats remotely fair. In my humble opinion, Nissan is the ONLY manufacturer who has kept **** real this WHOLE time. Always keeping front engine RWD machines in the lineup no matter what. Yeah yeah, WRX's are ok and EVO ****s are alright but damn, OVERPRICED and idiot rich kids get them and ruin it for the rest of us, especially where insurance rates are concerned.I'm glad I can drive down the strip and not see another car like mine. I'm glad it's not cool yet and for that very reason I can still afford it. I never thought I'd say it but Hyundai has stepped up it's game so much, they really can't be ignored anymore.

Sorry for the drunken RANT but damn, I had to get it off my chest. For the haters and people who doubt, all I'm sayin is go drive one.... You'll see.

Anyways,
Heres my new Ride.....

I was more impressed with the Genesis in pictures. I started seeing them on the road and they didn't look as good.

The hell are you talking about ?

Get a s2000 , drop it down to 1000Kg, a few light mods, and you have a pretty fun car


Back to the Hyundai
yeah the wheel to wheel spacing in the middle is just too long looking

but the specs are nice for the price

LOL, man what can I say? Maybe I'm still getting used to the idea of owning something other than a Honda and need to justify that to myself. In all seriousness, I love my new car and I don't regret my decision one bit. The only thing I don't like is the fact it didn't come with the LSD.

Manual of course.I didn't opt for the track pack as I can't stand the spoiler they put on the back and it was an extra 5 g's. Also, the track pack is even stiffer than the base or grand touring which is something I cant imagine driving on a daily basis and enjoying. My car rides rough as it is. Hell I thought someone punched me in the kidneys the first week I had it...haha As for mods, I'm a bit on the broke side so until I recoup.......But I'm thinking about some 19x9 in front, 19x10 in the rear, something with a low offset and alotta dish. An LSD will more than likely be my first mod.

A Tiberon?!?! REALLY???? I jus don't see it.

Anyways, I took some better pics today... Let me know what ya'll think, I appreciate the feedback either way.

It's getting awfully close now. Honda still has a leg up on them in small cars and that's about it. And of course, I say this as a Honda owner from a Honda-owning family.
