actually, we are doing really well now that I'm being treated for my bipolar. And my wife and I work together on things. She doesn't wear the pants and tell me what to do...Like giving me "permision". We make finacial desicions together. When I want to spend money, we talk about it. She understands that our income is OUR money and sometimes I am aloud to make decisions on how to spend it just like she isI'm saying this trying to be the nicest possible, but... Aren't you the one with marital problems? I wouldn't give out advice to other people if I were you lol
The gen coupes are sick, I have been seeing them a lot lately, would love one of those, but need to wait and see how they do after a couple of years.
I would consider a tib as a project car as well. Just not the junk V6i would get either the last gen tiburon or a decent 03-05 tiburon... but that's just me
Guess I'm 1 out of 3, whose next?The funny part is that out of the 22 people that answered GenCoupe so far, I'm sure only 3 would/could ACTUALLY buy one (new).
I don't know what would have been worse...seeing you wreck it within a month, or seeing it repo'd.i almost brought a coupe like 2 months ago however the fact that i would have no extra money was going to be a huge problem. i rather mod my elantra anyway
fyi i have never had an accident and i would never buy anything i couldnt afford. i dont make stupid decisions when it comes to money and my credit.I don't know what would have been worse...seeing you wreck it within a month, or seeing it repo'd.
Either way, you were smart to stick with the Elantra.
Well that's why you can afford it, you want the cheap model, go 3.8 GT or go home.yeah would have been the awesome 4 cylinder manual. green with black interior plus track package. why cant i be a pharmacist now??
i already dont eat much now because im too busy running around all day
Couldn't you rebore the V6 for a higher displacement, replace the pistons, and be good to go? Or would the walls become too thin (e.g. overheat too easily...)?oh no, not the v6, the 4 banger all the way
as long as the bills are paid who cares right? you work for your money and as long as the basics are taken care of, you can spend the extra on whatever you want, you've earned it
Damn, none of the people that service our cars around here **** with our cars (Holmes Hyundai/Honda <Yes...> and Stew Hansen Dodge City).Well the dealership thing is what it is, hit or miss and I think that applies to pretty much all brands. Unfortunately Hyundai seems to have some of the ****tiest service managers ever. The one I frequented, and solely based on proximaty, was Sandy Sansing Hyundai in Pensacola, Fl, and I can't even count the number of times I caught them outright lying to me on services required, repairs that were mandated that they refused to do, and just outright bull****.
Ex: CEL because of CAI. Change to stock, reset, cell still there. Turns out its a o2 sensor. They changed the wrong one, and they had to replace the other one due to their incompetence.
My car had hydrolocked and the car was towed to Hyundai by my insurance. I didn't know at the time it was at Hyundai, but when I found out, I called the insurance company and told them that I didn't want Hyundai working on my car. They allowed me to get the car to my mechanic, but sure enough, the dealership was full of it, saying that the engine was taken apart and whatnot. Nothing had been done to the vehicle. They said that the intake box was full of water, impossible because the stock intake which was at the time in the car, had been in my closet. I hydrolocked on a CAI and switched to the stock in case insurance company was gonna hassle me. My mechanic noticed, but he was cool.
But they'll get whats coming to them. I will definitely be in, get into negotiations, and right before signing, make them pay up for all there bull**** in terms of getting an extra $1000 off, or wasting an entire day. Not to mention if it falls through, they are gonna get hell from me in the service department.
so you are assuming i dont no how to drive manual? keep on assuming **** ur good at that. btw i dont need the 3.8 GT as my DD.Well that's why you can afford it, you want the cheap model, go 3.8 GT or go home.
Can you even drive manual or are you just going to sit there grinding gears while the rest of us hold our very souls in agony?
Because if you were looking at manual cars (not saying you were going to buy it) it would be to your advantage to know how to drive on a manual first especially if you were going to drive a car were every shift counts.yes i can but why does it matter?
yeah.. the sedan is not perfect... I would have chosen with a manual transmission but they don't make it!!I like the Sedan, but it feels very old manish, I guess it's the wood panel interior and just the big box feeling the exterior gives off...
The Touring would be a nice winter beater defiantly, it's a good size for the price, and nothing sucks more than trying to get into a tiny compact like an Accent with a winter coat on.
