Hyundai really did a great job to make an affordable track car "out of the box".
I really don't think this Hyundai will depreciate like other Hyundai.
For now it's "just another hyundai" and much like the genesis coupe, it'll probably be relegated to the 2nd or 3rd tier when it comes to enthusiast recommendations for used recommendations down the road.
That's just one dude's opinion though, and I still think new vs new at current transaction prices it's the one to beat in the hot hatch segment (don't forget about that warranty!)
It also doesn't help that the Veloster N price in Canada is within 2-3k of CTR, hard sell.
For what it's worth, dealers around me in Omaha, Nebraska, are still acting like it just released. They aren't budging off of MSRP, and one dealer won't even allow test drives unless you commit to buy. The dealer where I was able to test drive has a $2,500 ceramic coating added on.. As such, I'm planning on waiting until Spring to make a decision, and I'll probably end up going with the safe choice in a Golf R.
I think I'm going to turn this into my build/fun thread for this car:
Got tint, PPF, and ceramic applied:
Going to start looking into brake fluid and 18x7 wheel/tire combo that I like for autox and trackdays. Doing the first autocross with it in September.
Got through the break-in period the other day:
EDIT: I don't know why I had it in my head that the stock wheels for the PP were 19x7, but they're 19x8 which means I can run an 18x8.
Also, after messing around with wheels on Forza I'm leaning towards these now:
This car is a freaking blast! I don't even know why I was concerned about the interior materials, while everything is hard plastic I don't even care -- not once since I've owned it have I even considered the materials used. The overall fit is well done it just uses cheap materials and I am totally ok with that now.
Over the weekend I changed oil to 5w40(factory fill was 0w20 blend!), did a tech inspection, and swapped out the shifter bushings to Boomba Racing aluminum bushings. The bushings significantly improved the feel of the shifter and well worth the purchase price.
Also picked up a new helmet for the cars first HPDE this coming weekend, I'm ready to go vroom vroom!
I said, Rock, what's a matter with you rock?
If you're only using the wheels/tires for Autox, could you skip the TPMS all together? You have time between runs to check and adjust pressure by hand and it looks like it would save some $$ if that's a priority.
