    I purchased a 2011 Genesis 4.6 on September 16th 2015. It only had 32K miles and so far I could not be happier.







    I always modify my cars to look different, I like a factory custom look. I got the car back from the body shop yesterday and got the new wheels and tires today.





    I had the roof painted Candy Black, I changed to a blacked out 2012 grille with a solid chrome upper piece, added a RKSport trunk spoiler, Darker Red Tails, and 19" wheels from the Genesis Coupe.

    My father started me on wanting cars that were different, he would say, "I don't want to see myself coming down the street." and I live by that today.

    I also like to confuse people and make them think they have seen something they have never seen before.
    Some people de-badge their cars, I re-badge mine.
    Here is my Genesis R Limited, I actually got a service writer at the Hyundai Dealer today, he said, "I have never seen a Limited model before." I guess it worked.



    I bought the wrong Genesis Wing Center Caps, so I have to wait for the larger ones for the Coupe to come in.







    I am very happy with the way the grille came out. I am going to paint the lower grille as well.



    The RKSport Spoiler cost a little bit more, but I really like the shape.





    When I had the roof painted, I also did the roof moldings, because that is how they do it on the 2G with the panoramic roof.



    I knew what I wanted to do, before I even bought the car, but what others did here on the site really helped me know I was going down the right path.

    I look forward to years of driving enjoyment and interaction with the fine people here at Genesis Owners.

    The center caps are what we call the waffle center covers. The coupe does not fit. These do. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2009-HYUNDAI...-/161068761994

    The caps for the new wheels, those are for the wheels I took off.

    Ok, I understand now. And, I know you are going to love the car for many many miles.

    The black center caps came in, and the wing for the hood.





    I also had the lower grill painted black too.

    Looks nice, except for two things:
    1. Not a fan of the rear wing
    2. Definitely not a fan of making up a model. The term "limited" belongs on an Accord, Camry, or Sonata, not a Genesis. I understand some people want to be unique and this is your way of doing it.
    2013 Genesis 3.8 (λ) Tech - Platinum Metallic/Jet Black
    Wings all around, LED doors/rear plate/trunk

    2013 RX350 AWD Nav - Deep Sea Mica/Parchment
    No mods needed

    Everyone has their own taste, and I celebrate people's right to modify their car they way they want to.

    I personally don't like the slammed look with the wheels tilted and tires stretched, I also don't get the plasti-dip thing. But I am in my 50's, I want a car that drives well and looks great.

    I also like that very few people actually know what I drive.

    It's a Genesis. If one removes the logos from the rear and center caps, very few people actually know what you drive (no need to create a fictitious model).

    Just take a look at this thread.

    Anyhow, if you enjoy it, that is all that matters. You posted to receive opinions, and I gave mine.
