    Default Anyone else love the latest Genesis Sedan?

    Anyone on here have one? Specifically the 5.0L motor?

    I haven't driven one, but stylistically, I think it looks awesome.

    Yup. But the real question is how soon the chassis code crowd will start glomming into them like the second coming of christ,

    The 5.0 still starts at 53k. Kinda steep for the chassis code crowd, no?

    Depends on the depreciation. I can see a lot of entry level owners raiding the parts bin and talk swaps.

    Here's what I've been saying forever, it's the same thing with the genesis sedan, the equuuuus etc. If I spend $50k++, I dont want to be sitting in a dealership where all the rif raf pull up in their accents and elantras. Thats why lexus went to their seperate dealerships, doctors/laywers servicing their 2012 RX450 dont want to be sitting in the same waiting room as a call center employee with 3 kids servicing his 92 corolla.

    A cars a car, and a $50K genesis can be as luxurious as a bmw, but there's no prestige. That's what people pay for.

    I guess I just don't care about image enough to let it bother me that accents get serviced where I get a genesis serviced. It's just a car.

    Besides, where can you get a 429hp car that looks awesome for 53k brand new?

    Same reason you can buy a phaeton for under 30K now. If you dont mind the VW riff raff with their skinny jeans and face jewlery its an awesome car.

    Cars are about image. They cater to different class of people. I'd just hope people with good money can buy better taste. Thats why there's a $100K mustang, and a $300K lambo with the same hp. Telling someone you paid $100K for a Ford I'd laugh, same thing with $60K for a Hyundai.

    The Genesis 5L (spec-r) isn't out in Canada just yet. Should be here in the next 2 months. Can't wait to get my hands on the first spec-r that shows up at my work.

    So ur gonna laugh at a person who bought one of those beautiful Ford GT's?

    That Genesis is a good looking car and I bet the ride quality is top notch next to any high priced name brand car. To bad theirs people like u in this world who can't appreciate new quality.

    Base model 5 series starts at 58k. Is that Hyundai the top trim? Dont kid yourself just cause its a bimmer doesnt mean its well made, engineered yes, made no. The new round of korean cars are very well made, these aren't the ponys from the 80s.

    You can't shit on someone buying a 50k hyundai when the car you own isnt' exactly a brand new off the lot AMG. LOL@image.

    Image or not. It would be interesting to compare the two cars 10 years down the road. Hell even 5.
