hey,
its a manual, hatch and 'mystic teal' according to hyundai (more a really dark bluey green). I've put a sports exhaust on it, side skirts, spoiler, bonnet scoop and a new stereo, sub etc. At the moment all the photos of my car are too big to put up but i'll try making them smaller. I want to get more power out of the car but not too sure how to do it at this stage and I'd like to have the exhaust going the whole way through not just the muffler and I'd really like to find some different tail lights but I don't think they exist. :( Anyway i'll go and find some photos to put up!!!
I know a few people called tessa i don't have any close friends called tessa though sorry

I found some photos taken outside a friends house i've put them into the gallery section!!!
if you think of anything i can do to improve it let me know... thanks :cool:

Looks good mate. Ever think about a set of Getz or LC2 Accent side markers, or in Australian, blinkers for the mudguards? They are the same only white / clear and I got a some new from my dealer for 30 bucks or so. Just a thought. Very easy to fit, takes minutes.

mudguards john? ;)
Yeah some white side indicators on the fenders would be good. Maybe some tint as well?
You can get the 2004-2006 model tail lights they're the only other option at the moment, see:

Regarding more power, the car responds very well to the I/H/E (Intake, Headers [Extractors], & Exhaust) formula.
Have a read of this if you haven't already:

that's ok, a great friend of mine from school in Canberra was a Tessa, and had a friend named Rhianna or Rhiannon...I only met her a few times, so I never really remembered which variation it was, just thought I would check anyway.

It's cool that you're from Canberra. Where are you in Canberra. I used to live in Monash, then I moved to Calwell (where my sister currently lives with her husband).

Anyway, WELCOME TO THE GROUP!

Thanks everyone, i'll definately look into clear indicators and tint i just don't know where to take it so it doesn't end up all bubbly... I have thought about getting the 2004 lights i just don't know if they will sell them to me for an 02.
I live in Bruce so over the otherside.
Which school did you go to?

The side indicators your dealer could have next day, if ya lucky ( mine did ) Not to discourage you from buying stuff from Korea, I have and it all went well. As for ` mudguards` Seiny, I call a head unit ` the wireless` true story..

I haven't heard to much about convenant college! i know roughly where it is and thats about it.
I was thinking i might head down to the dealer on monday and see what i can find... i don't think i could take waiting for the post if i didn't want to but there are a few other things i'm looking at from sharkracing.
does anyone know roughly how much i should expect to pay for tinting? i want it dark but still legal.
hey aussieXD2 its the 2002 spoiler the one that was available from hyundai before your model came out, i like the spoilers that came out with yours i was thinking of swapping. are you north side or south?? you weren't parked at UC a couple of weeks ago were you? i swear i parked next to a car identical to yours!!!

I live south side but im a student at UC. 1st year BIT & Commerce. WOW, what are the odds??? I got my tinting done at a place in Philip:

They charged me $250 and that was 35%, darkest legal. Definately worth it!
