Well I guess its about time I've made one of these... I previously drove an 02 GLS Elantra and thats how I got into modding since it was my first car. After finding this site, I've realized that theres more potential in these cars than most people see in it. So thats why after my accident (totalled the 02) I "upgraded" to an 05 model! I liked the 01-03 body more, but I have a thing about used cars... So most of my Audio mods in this new car came straight out of the corpse of my old one, tragic yet that is the circle of life I guess...


(pre-Profile) My Alpine Headunit (CDA-9805): I like how at night, its lights match the rest of the green in the dash and console.

My JL Audio 12" W6 with Ported Box: On the top you can see the scars it received from that last car's accident, but luckily it survived and sounds as good as the day I bought it.

My 15x7 Rota Slipstreams (13lbs) with 205/55/15 88V BFGoodrich G-Force Sports (20lbs)

(11/14/05) Speakers: 2x 6.5" Infinity Reference 6012 si (50rms) , 2x 6x9 Infinity Reference 960 3i (100rms)

(11/19/05) Tiburon Sway Bar w/ Metal Endlinks (No pic): It really is a big improvement over the smaller stock bar with plastic links! (Part#'s 55511-2C100, 2x 55513-2C110 and 2x 55530-29500)

(11/21/05) 35% Tints (No pic): Not so dark (cool) but Great for getting the sun out of my face, plus they are legal.

(11/26/05) MUSSA Type-B Front Strut Bar: Looks good and "feels" good, I think... or it might be a placebo effect but I still like it.

(12/19/05) MUSSA Rear Strut Bar: Nice and Shiny.

(12/20/05) ARK Black Billet Antenna: Shorter than I expected... When they say Four Inches... They mean it.

(04/15/06) Painted License Holder/Finally Clean

(04/17/06) Wendy's EXD Meet North Haven, CT

(07/22/06) Lake George CT Convoy Waterbury, CT

(Ghost Ride Da Whip!)

(07/28/06) PIAA Rear Signals (I like how they are blue, match my car's color but shine a really bright white)

Bosch Icon Wipers (Nice and sleek)

(07/30/06) Endless Dreams Amherst, MA

(08/05/06) Kia Front Lip Spoiler Installed (It was a custom hack and isn't 100% perfect but I think it looks good for a first attempt at this type of thing)
