Hyundai screwed up when they created the Genesis logo. It looks too much like Chrysler's logo. A brand logo should be unique and distinct. Look at Mercedes, Audi, and BMW.
Logo is also similar to Bentley, Astin Martin, minicooper --


😀
More so for Bentley and Aston than Chrysler or Mini, but Austin Healey, Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera (a coachbuilder), Ford's Thunderbird, Cadillac's Blackwing, etc. all have winged logos.

That being said, think the Genesis winged logo could have been done better.

Thankfully you don't see too many Chryslers driving around LA/OC. Seems like they should have designed something with rings/circles in it (looking at the Germans), but I suppose they wanted to differentiate themselves from those brands a bit?

Homies.

Drift mode is awesome.

I played around a little today. First, Sport mode with TC disabled. The car lets me slide the rear end out with simple power oversteer, don't even need to be going fast at all (like 10mph, if that). However, once you get the tail out to a high enough angle (which isn't much) it cuts power pretty sharply. With TC and SC disabled, you can do whatever the crap you want. Haha. I'll tell you, this thing is actually really smooth and controllable when doing some power oversteer slides, though I'm sure the ever so slightly damp roads helped, too. But anyway. Drift mode works, and it kicks so much ass.

Sorry Stinger bros, your AWD car can't do this. Oh well. Guess you'll have to wait for the GTS to arrive to have as much fun as us.

Works way better with a square setup. I drive country roads so sometimes I disabled the nannies and drifted through corners with my winter wheels!
Not gonna roast my PS4 just yet! But I have had fun with it in heavy rain!

Do you have the AWD or RWD ? I heard AWD swings out the rear end too :D

When you get your 3.3T (hopefully soon) you won't regret it. The difference between both engines is like Night and Day.
By the way -- not sure if I mentioned it before, but -- you are SOOO RIGHT!!! I am so glad that I decided on the 3.3. I really think the 2.0 is also a wonderful car--but I really am glad I waited for this one. :)

^Haha, I had a weird experience yesterday at the gas pump. Guy filling my car (Oregon doesn't let you self fill - but that's a rant for another day) says "Looks like a sporty ride." I told him it's a lot of fun. He then says he's never seen anything like it before, so I say, "Yeah, it's the same platform and engine as the Kia Stinger." He stops and just gives me a blank stare....."Kia makes a sports car...?" I go, "Yeah man, you should check it out." At that point he just looked dumbfounded. Haha.

**Genesis legal disclaimer: we're totally referring to the G-Force you'll be pulling from Launch Control...
Or maybe the G-force you'll hit going around corners. I hit 0.8G on an interchange with the family in the car, and let's just say neither of them necessarily enjoyed it that much. The wife said her stomach felt a little queasy, my daughter said her back hurt and that her stuffed kitty toy got cuts on her ears from the corner. :sorry:

He should check it out -- and then he will realize how great the G70 is by comparison.
Hate the idea of not being able to self fill--crazy.
