We don't get those 17" alloys here in the US I think, and they look great! I bet some people would be interested. Some people with '07's I mean, not us four-bolters. smile.gif


They are sitting in the garage at the moment doing nothing!!! I have no idea what shipping to the US would be, but if someone wants them I won't pass it up. They are actually an Australian made wheel, Performance Wheels, so yeah I doubt you will find them over there! Hey there is an opportunity to be completely unique!
They make a lot of really good OEM wheels for manufacturers here.

elantragt: No not as yet but give me a bit and I will for sure, and thanks to all for the comments, they are a handsome car, so why not drop some coin into it!

Thanks for the positive feedback! There is not much of a Hyundai following here in Australia as there is in the US....unfortunately the brand still has a "cheap and nasty" tag associated with it, but we know that isn't always true!

Amen to that brother. Because as one of the hottest HD's there is nothing "cheap and nasty" about your ride. Keep them takepicture.gif coming. Your ride makes good wallpaper material clap3.gif

Brakes:










I just took some interior pics. The 2 black switches you see are for the audio head unit. One is a screen dimmer bypass and the other is a screen defeat bypass. The unit has a line that connects to the handbrake power line, which prevents the viewing of DVD images while the handbrake is in the "OFF" position. Well, this switch bypasses that function in one position, and enables it in another position. So, if the Police happen to pull me up, all will appear as per normal with the quick flick of a switch.

Apart from that, all is as per standard, with the exception of the "SNAP ON" seat throws.

Wow, that is the coolest HD that I've seen thus far. I wish we could get those 17"s here in the US.

Hey guys, haven't posted for a bit, but finally got my original headlights modified to what I want them to be.
I did buy some blackened bezel lights from OS but I wasn't entirely happy with them. We have a separate "park" globe that is in the main beam reflector over here, and the lights i bought do not have that feature, they use a double filament indicator globe.

Not sure if the US is like that, but here in OZ it could be a defectable modification.

So, I pulled my original lights apart and painted the bezels black. I figured while they were apart I would bling them up a touch, so I ordered some LED panels to replace the filament indicator globes.

So, here are some pics during and after mods.
