I personally think you're just a hater.

RWD and Factory F/I has been a favorite of many for a long time and it is something we have been missing out on for quite some time... in affordable form that is, or something even available in the US. People love the combination, they love it MORE when it's affordable.

I would rather have a good looking car with all the attributes I desire at a good price with tons of potential than a pay TWICE as much for a car with a badge that makes me accepted by other people (who usually don't know shit about cars) with expensive cars.
I agree. RWD + turbo + cheap = winner. I wouldn't personally buy one, but I will admit it is very tempting.

I read threw some of the pages so i had to join.I hate guys that say it's a hyundai.The genesis is a better car then the G37.Plus you think nissian is so good.Buy the first 350Z when you had to change your front tires 3 times a year.I have a 06 tib and i can't waite to buy the Genesis so i can kill the 37 thousand and up cars.What there giving you for the price is out standing.

1) Affordability - We buy what we can afford
2) Performance - We buy what entertains us
3) Aesthetics - We buy what looks good
4) Reliability - We buy good craftmanship

#3 is a huge failure for Hyundai, even the Genesis, because both the Sedan and Coupe can be mistaken for other cars easily. Just this morning, a co-worker thought who was looking over my shoulder thought the Genesis was a modded G35/37. I had to point out that it was a Hyundai.

Hyundai hasn't defined a unique aesthetic quality to their cars.

BMW = Kidney Grills / Angle Eyes
Mercedes = Bisected Grill
Audi = Stupid looking Olympic circles
Ferrari = The raging Pony, and huge side vents
Corvette = The 4 lights you usually see after one has rolled by you.
Porsche = The beetle back (from the rear engine setup)

What is unique about a Hyundai that someone can readily identify? Nothing, and that's why Hyundai as a brand lacks any badge recognition.

I mean seriously:
Genesis Sedan - Stolen Benz Grill,
Genesis Coupe - Styling cues stolen straight from Infinity G35/37.

They need to create their own identity.

It reminds me of this shit from a Chinese car company that basically copied BMWs SUVs and sedans for their own cars:


That's some dirty shit.

your wrong... there was a report out saying guys are turning there cars in for the Genesis 4 door.Plus what do you want a 4 seater sprots car to look like a lambo.The genesis has way better lines then that flat sided G37 and what is so nice about BMW.My sister in law paid 95 thousand dollars for a BMW that looks like any BMW and it is not that fast for the price.Plus the Genesis has a better chassis then the BMW

Hyundai copied infiniti's design and thats it....Just like the way Hyundai copies every other luxury manufacturer. They aren't in the same league and most people wouldn't even think about cross shopping a genesis coupe and g37 or 335i. I admit it looks good, but i think the g37 looks alot better

Umm, BMWs aren't considered "exotics", they are luxury or executive cars.

Who doesn't know what they are talking about again?

Some of these guys might not be able to see the details as easily as you. Many non-enthusiasts may confuse them.

I doubt it'll happen much when you see them in person. The Genesis is a much better looking car.

Look, I paid good money for a "Ferffari". It goes 0-60 in 2.1 seconds, your lowly Tiburon won't be passing much in the streets.

You said you would rather buy a car that will save you thousands of dollars. You are justifying your purchase based on price. I asked if you would make the same decision if money were no object.

You are just coming off as a bitter person. You come onto a BMW forum and say that cars like BMWs etc etc are just for image and status. Do us all a favor and find a forum where you won't feel intimidated.

No one on the black market will buy this baby. He eats 2 baby food jars per meal instead of one. This baby is eating my Aston Martin fund and pooping it out.

You don't see BMW guys trolling Hyundai forums because frankly we don't care.

Drive what you want to drive and be happy. Stop bringing your Hyundai hate here.
