Looks like someone's feelings got hurt. It'll be ok big guy
The PR crack got you upset huh? Don't dish what you can't take.
Yes what I posted was from the mag; again it was something I R-E-A-D. I don't really care if that mag's people, C&D's people, MT people, whoever was where. It really doesn't matter. I read the articles, journals and weekly letters for enjoyment, not for the stone-cold, end all truth. Because, as you must know (at least I hope you know), it's their opinions. So if someone posts something from another source, it is not their own, it is from that source. Get it? If I was there I would have posted something different, like my own shots, commentary and info. and let's be clear, everything you have posted was also from somewhere else, as you would've been able to make your own comments / judgements. But unlike you, I didn't try to jump all over you with some bs diatribe to try to boost my ego, to try to make myself look / seem more knowledgeable than possible. But you did and it backfired, as usual. And if your feelings got hurt, sorry but too bad.
Let's move on, shall we, because this is really boring...

Almost everything I posted here come from a reliable source with inside scoop of Hyundai. I tried to offer something differ from the incorrect assumptions, yet you insisted otherwise (not related to the topic), and how little (knowledge) I know about "xxxx" subject.
There is no ego to boost, just the truth. I am just baffled you are still arguing against the truth.
I tried to do some good and some good I did.
Let's move on...

Joe97 thanks for the helpful info on the upcoming BH coupe. So what you're saying is that the concept shown at LA will be pretty much close to production?

Very much so. The concept Genesis was built off of the pre-production model. The tuner parts, such as carbon fiber hood, probably won't make into production but I do see them being offered as aftermarket upgrades. Despite such, and based on what I have seen and heard, I still expect the production coupe to have flare and presence.
Others, let's see...the 20 in. wheels on the concept won't make into production but 18s or 19s would be good bet. Also, the bending rigidity has been benchmarked after the BMW M3 (E46); it was indicated the coupe has higher chassis ridgidity, which generally lead to great handling.
Let's wait and see how everything turns out, but if what has been shown so far is any indication of the direction Hyundai is taking, then this would be great news for a lot of us

joe97 That is certainly great news! Based on the reaction to this concept and the constant chatter on various auto web communities that I frequent, this is a definite home run for Hyundai. I also firmly believe that this will bring Hyundai front and center stage with Honda, Nissan, and especially Toyota.

Heck it'll put them ahead of Honda and Toyota as they don' t offer any RWD affordable sporty cars at all.

Very nice. I'll definitely be checking this out.
