Where would you guys recommend getting it lowered and possibly a cold air intake installed?

For what hyundai is trying to do, I commend them

As far as the car is concerned, as long as its not a hyundai powerplant, it should be a decent car.

I've had first hand experience with new/newer hyundai's and their engines.
I wouldn't trust it to be turboed :P OR if ti was, never exceed stock haha.

But again, they are bringing the affordable sports coupe back into the game. I hope the other manufacturers come play ball too.

same motor as the lancer (not evo) in the 2.0T. I'm waiting for an evo block swap from a decent shop, likely see 600+hp cars in the near future.

I went in and test drove a 2.0T and was pretty impressed but i found it a little to large of a car, its heavy and rides on the same chassy as the Sedan so all in all im not sure I would buy one anymore. I'd kinda rather just supercharge a 08 Tiburon.

Thats a really sick car though, i hope i see you driving it around Victoria sometime.

Go to $$$$$$$$ beside Walmart town and country, or behind the Budget store on the highway! ask for Chris there hes a cool guy. What about your warrenty though? what kinda mods can you safly do without vioding it?

I test drove a red 2.0T premium package Genesis coupe day. It's an extremely nice car. Handling is great (only drove it with traction control off), interior is super comfy and quiet, gear box felt nice. I'd buy one if the miata was written off. Beautiful car.

Supercharging a Tibby instead of buying a Genesis? Its FWD man, the cars are not comparable.

I wouldnt count out the tibbie over a genesis souly based on RWD Vs RWD. Both cars have lots of potential in the aftermarket world one being supercharged and the other turbocharged (turbo lag vs power right away). I personaly have drivin both, a 2008 V6 Tib and a 2010 Gen Coupe 2.0 and found the Tiburon a nicer drive. The Tiburon is a little underpowerd and has kinda loud street noise but its 325lbs lighter and i found the trans on the Genesis very difficult and jerky while i was totally shocked on how smooth and easy the clutch and trans work on the Tiburon. I also dont like how long the Genesis is, it rides on the same chassie as the Sedan? thats a disapointment. I almost bought a white Gen, but i held back and im pretty sure my next car will be Tiburon.

I don't know, I drove the Tiburon and it didn't feel nearly as refined. Felt really similar to a 1994 MX-6. The genesis sedan is amazing, and I'm totally fine with the coupe being based off of it.

200T

I have the 2.0t. Love the car, a little heavy but the suspension is stiffer than expected and you hardly notice any roll. Nice 380, and decent drop!
