    Not when I can get a 1 year old S2000 with less than 10K miles under the price of the base 2.0T...

    I'd rather the usability of a car with a back seat and full trunk over a 3-season convertible with no space in it for stuff.

    hmmm. this can be a quite a toy for the future. I have to wait and see what the reviews are going to be like.

    Really though - they're going to make or break this. But there's a lot of buzz behind this car. It has big shoes to fill.

    The Genesis sedan has received favourable reviews though, albeit they tend to say it's a little too softly sprung. If this behaves similarly it could kill it.

    It's totally dependant on the market when you start comparing the value of a new car to the value of what you can get locally for a used car. Right now they want $37,500cnd for a 2005 model S2000 just outside of Halifax with 12,000kms on it. :rofl:

    I dunno where you're looking, but 05's could be had last summer sub 30k miles, for 24-26k CAD, locally. I looked at several in dartmouth, sackville and halifax all in that price range. :shrug:

    I wasn't shopping for an S2K in the summer so I wouldn't know what the prices were at that point. I simply did an autotrader search and posted what they were asking for the closest S2K in Nova Scotia. It was actually the only one available in Nova Scotia on the site with a visible price.

    Gotcha. Some sellers are out of touch with reality.

    That's why I said "not when *I* can get..." instead of "Not when anyone in the greater Halifax area can immediately go out and purchase..."

    ;)

    Does anyone else think the interior sort of looks like an RX8?

    I'm just saying... it's not a matter of how firmly you've got a grasp on this language, but more importantly that of your audience!

    Since everyone else seems to be afraid to, I'll say it:

    It's still a HYUNDAI!*


    *therefore PitBull has wet dreams about it.

    Sounds pretty promising. Some slight complaints of rubbery manual and conflicting reports about it's steering, but one thing they both say is that the handling is first rate and the structure very solid (but heavy). I think that was the biggest worry. Other complaints centre around the interior, which apparently is cheaper looking than preferred (but Hyundai said it had to cut costs somewhere, and they put all their money into's it's handling dynamics). It's not quite as fast of some of it's competitors either, but some say the engine is actually more refined than Nissan's VQ.

    Looks good, but what the hell is with the wheel arches on what seems to be every new car. I don't like the big flat spot of the arch before it tapers into the bodyline.

    Other than that, 306 horses sound like fun.

    Say whatever you want, but that is one hell of a car for the price, Hyundai or not. Seriously.

    Sounds like a solid car, but it's not something I'd be interested in.

    No more 2-door daily drivers.

    I don't understand what you mean... You mean they've uprated the power figures?
