Now that you own one what would you say is the Coupes best feature?

The feeling it gives you every time you get in it and the looks on the faces of the also rans as they realise it's a Hyundai!

How would you rate the car - out of 5 - on the following:

Ext Styling
Int Styling
Economy (my heavy right foot)
Cost of ownership

In the next model what would you like to see added or changed?

A stripped down racer model

Have you modified your Coupe? If yes list up to 5 items and reasons why.

1. Snorkus Mod - great sound, better performance (just)
2. Performance leads - smoother power delivery
3. High power lights - the original lights are rubbish

Do you have any plans to modify your car / modify it further? (list up to 5 items and reasons why)

1. Strut Brace - improve handling
2. CAI - performance
3. Stainless exhaust - Performance and sound

If your Coupe was edible, what food would it be and why?

Chocolate - You know you shouldn't but what the hell

Should you ever part with your beloved Coupe what car would you buy next?


What is the most annoying thing about your Coupe?

Since I changed the head unit the aerial stays up when the unit is on

Do you regularly (read / look at the pictures in / ring the dodgy numbers in the back of) modified car magazines?


Any other personal details, or comments that you would like to share with the world?

The coupe gets under your skin. If you don't have one, get one, you know it makes sense.
