2003 Hyundai Elantra GT Hatchback
How long have you owned your Elantra?
For the last year and couple of months.
Is there anything special, unique, or different concerning the history of your Elantra?
Honestly, what was your intention when you bought your Elantra?
To mod the hell out of it and race in the SCCA!!! Which I plan on doing come spring time.
What was your intention after discovering EXD (or other Hyundai forums)?
I had a tiburon at the time but really wanted a GT. I loved the way they looked, and the versatility of them. From the first pic of the Chaiti Red GT... I knew I wanted one!
Oh yeah... I was apart of one of the first hyundai forums back in '99... www.fxtreme.org!
In one word describe the style of your Elantra.
Who helped modify your Elantra?
Nobody, I did it all myself... thank you very much! Oh I can give credit to my boy Henry for holding sockets and handing me a wrench every now and again.
What do you like most about your Elantra?
My system setup... which is going to change in the near future... and the handling which is only going to improve after sway bars, poly bushings, and strut braces.
What do you like least about your Elantra?
The brakes! They are horrible! I have drilled KVR rotors and hawk pads on the way... so problem solved. And I cant seem to get all the rattles out of the hatch... but again that is solvable.
What modification is next for your Elantra?
EvoFusion catback exhaust.
On a scale from 0-10, how would you rate your Elantra?
For me its a 7.5-8... there is a lot more I plan on doing... it might take awhile but it will get done.
Most commonly, what do people say about your Elantra?
That it's cleaniest Hyundai they have seen.
Who is allowed to drive your Elantra?
Almost anybody who is close to me... and understand my obsession.
What is the most outrageous thing you have wanted to do to your car that you have not been able to do?
Supercharge it! The bank account has not allowed for it and the fact that Ford is still waiting for his.
What kind of car did you own (or drive) before your Elantra?
1990 Excel, 1994 Excel, 2000 Tiburon.
Realistically, what kind of car is next?
I'm not sure... when I'm done with payments on this car it will be like 4 and half years from now... so who knows! But after my doctorate... whatever I can afford.
