Not in SoCAL, yet live in the Central Valley. A place where the locals used to call "MoTown" known now to many Bayarea computers as Modesto, now refer to as a city.
Bought "My Gen" in July and just had the windows tinted, 4 days ago, a birthday gift. The tint "guy" and another coworker were trying to figure out what model of car just pulled in their driveway; a Lexus? etc. They just loved the car and I have to say made me feel great they were enjoying checking out my "baby".
P.S. the tint job is so "hot" looks so great on car.
West Hills, San Fernando Valley, L.A. County. Just joined the site. I picked up My Genesis on 12/18/08. Cabrenet Red Pearl, Cashmere, 3.8 w/Winged Badge on trunk & wheels. I'm happy to see that you are all out there. I love my Genesis. I went to the L.A. Auto Show to compare a Honda Accord EXL & a Saturn Aura, thankfully the Hyundai Exhibit was in my way. Love at first sight. I did my research and test drove it, found a great deal w/10 yr. & 100,000 bumper to bumper, slight fee worth it. We need to start a Genesis Car Club. Every one who sees the car parked asks "What's a Genesis.
Roger! That's a nice color combo you have - my second choice behind white. Did you get it with the winged badges, or DIY afterwards like me? I get more "What's a Genesis?" queries since I changed the rear Hyundai badge to a wing. It's the best amusement...
Glad to meet you. The day my wife and I went to test drive it together, we did, then I asked to go in and talk numbers, and their she was sitting on the showroom floor, with a big red bow on top. Ladin Lincoln, Mercury, Hyundai in Thousand Oaks puts the wings on the back and on the rims. So it came with. It has the Premium Plus package. It's quiet, and comfortable and I just got the Hyundai ipod cable so I hooked my nano up and took a cruise down the highway. Hope to meet you one day, like I said, we should start a car club.
Ladin Hyundai changes out all their Genesis with the Wings. Mine were on the wheels and of the car sitting on the showroom floor. I looked on the internet and found that you can get the wings for trunk & wheels as a set. If I remember correctly it was hyundaiaccessories.com something along that line.
I saw an emblem (wings) for the hood, but was told it doesn't fit on the American model. Good Luck,
We need to get all the Genesis Owners together for a bull session and show off our cars. Roger arkRed"][/COLOR]
I went to Van Nuys Keyes hyundai, test drove one and then went to Ladin Lincoln, Mercury, Hyundai in Thousand Oaks at the Auto Mall. Miguel was the first contact, Eric Evans was the sales manager. I walked into the show room and ended up buying the car on the showroom floor. Cabrenet Red w/Cashmere Leather and the Premium Plus package. They don't deal much because they know what they've got.
