    The G1 sedan is admirable in its own right and will always stand as the literal "Genesis" of what has become a separate brand stream. I'd be proud of it for what it is and what it represents. I would not seek to pretend that it is something that it quite obviously is not.

    All is personal preference. Some like it, some don't. All about what you like.

    Even with a Genesis badge, people still ask all the time "What car is this?"

    For example, in Korea the 2009 lettering on the trunk was:
    • Genesis BH380
    • Genesis BH460

    The Korean versions of have always been sold under the Genesis brand, not Hyundai. That's why were able to get the Genesis wings from Korea to replace the USA flying "H" for the trunk, rims, steering wheel, etc.

    I'm holding out for the G100 badge

    In reality I just think it's cooler to say you drive a Genesis than a number-jumble G80 or G90.

    I'm going to rebadge pretty soon, it looks good. Also, having the Genesis wing, plus Genesis emblem is doing way too much. Way to say "look at me, I'm a Genesis" to everyone. I think it's better to have the wing Genesis emblem, followed by G80/90 as the model. That way, people won't assume you bought a Genesis Genesis o.O

    My 2 cents
