Just picked up our 2012 Touring a few weeks ago.
Loving the ride, the space and visability. Great mirrors and large windows sure makes it easy to see whats around you.
Test rode the Accent Hatch and found the rear window small on it.
The hood slopes down a fair bit and you can barely see it compared to the '04 GT we had.

Mods wish list:
Tinted windows
Rims and tires.
Front and rear spoilers.
Some sort of body side striping, maybe following the lower door crease swooping up and back....

That last pic is a really nice shot.

Glad you're enjoying the new ride.

hey-the third pic really shows the lower crease you want to stripe. The '13 GT has that same crease and I've seen pics of moldings placed there-one chrome & one black vinyl-that look great, but aren't offered in the States. sad.gif

The Touring didn't come with roof rails?

No roof rails on ours.



I did keep the roof rack we had with our '04 GT, and it fits.
The bike rack I used on the rear hatch on the '04 GT, and fits a Dodge caravan, does not fit the new Touring because the rear hatch gap is too tight fitting, and the clamps/hooks do not fit in between the hatch and frame.
