    it doesn't look anything like the genesis sedan. It SOOO much smaller. it's like the difference between a 5-series and a 3 series. Don't know why they are even pawning it off as a genesis.

    suspension looks pretty stiff.... driver was getting tossed around a bit on a bumpy section of road.

    overall though, i'm not too impressed. It doesn't even 'look' RWD. it looks like a tiburon fucked a gto and had kids.

    I went to the dealership and looked at them....they're marking them up $2500+ over MSRP (I looked at a black 2.0t track), it came in at like $30,500






    I laughed at the sales manager and walked away while spatting "call me when you realize its still a fuckin hyundai" over my shoulder

    you wonder why people hate you, you can't hold a job, and your gf left you. This is why.

    oh...if you want an E92, the salesguy who sold us the 135 and the X5 said they just dropped $12k off MSRP on their last '08...I think he said it'll come in at around $55k




    -if I didn't have a kid on the way...

    i'm kinda over the new M right now. not sure why. i'm sure it will bite me in the ass again some time, but right now, i'm not really interested in it. maybe when they get to 40 i'll consider one again.

    because it LOOKS like another car - you're basing your holier-than-thou opinion on it. And your car sounds like a canned Civic - See how much sense it makes ?

    Don't try that shark feeding bull. I've had WAY more luck with women than you, and I make about as much as you do right now, sans website money. We're on the same par, kiddo.

    I still haven't seen one in person; but $30k? ehhhh.

    As for the M3, you ever thought about looking at a RS4 or even a Porsche?

    I wanna go test drive one. The last time I test drove something I was going about 120 on the highway without knowing until I looked at the sales guy holding onto the o shit grip. He didn't say anything to me but I apologized for scaring him.
