I've made a few changes over the past few weeks. I got my exhaust tips replaced with something a bit beefier and got the car dropped on Sportline's today so they are still settling. Excuse the dirt, I haven't washed the car in a week and running catless doesnt help.





Current mod list stands at:
2011 Tsukuba Red Genesis Coupe 2.0T RSPEC
-Short ram intake
-O2 housing (primary cat delete)
-Test pipe (secondary cat delete)
-Muffler delete
-550CC DW injectors
-BR TUNE
-Oil catch can
-5000k HID's
-Alpine Type-R 12" Sub w/ 1200W Amp
-Eibach Sportline lowering springs
-GrimmSpeed front plate relocation kit
-KDM Badges

The front license plate on the side looks odd. Is that normal?

Nice car, I like the look and the mods seem nice. I'd love to hear a sound clip of the exhaust if you have one.

PS...It must be a pain to take pics of your car where you live. Either the car is titled, or all the houses are titled like in the third pic, lol.

Why are so many Hyundai/Kia buyers embarrassed to drive the cars with the badges on it and swap out the emblems all the time. Who are they fooling?

Nice car, nice mods, much prefer this front end to the new one.

I don't know if I'd say it was embarassment, there are plenty of other marques/models where badge swapping and making the car more representative of the home market model is popular. FWIW, I think the Genesis badges look a LOT better then the Hyundai "H". If I had one, I would probably swap them over as well and from what I've seen a lot of dealers are doing this before the cars are even sold.
