So my Elantra came sans diffuser and i think it looks 1000000 times better with on one and that got me thinking, i want one that actually does something not just look pretty, i realize that this car would probably never get fast enough to ale use of it but, id still like for it to do something, i plan on tracking the car, yes I'm going to track the elantra lol. Im not looking to spend over 150 and i have a 2012 gl. thanks

well if you want a functional diffuser, the price isnt going to be $150 unless you make your own out of card board and fiberglass.

i think a front aluminum splitter made from an old street sign would do more for aero than a rear diffuser...

not impossible... just not a likely item for your car. not exactly a track favorite enough for companies to make functional circuit racing items. it wouldnt be very useful in drag racing, and certainly not autocross.

if you can come up on the price, i've seen people use diffusers from other cars on their vehicles (non elantra).. i think the Rx-7,8 after market has some and the BRZ FRS folks too

maybe see if genesis tuners have em?

Oh no, I'm so sorry... the correct answer is The Moops.

The packaging clearly stated '100'. I'm short ONE luft balloon.

Hey-Check with your Hyundai dealer regarding a diffuser. It won't be cheap but will fit your car perfectly.

Check out hyundaioemparts . com or partshyundai . com

^both websites have discounted factory Hyundai parts, including the rear diffuser
that was suggested.

Cheers!

Oh, and it doesn't hurt to ask your local dealership to price match.
