Very pleased to hear about that especially since you had experience with the 124 Spider.
Even with feedback that good I think getting braces might still be in order for me, heard great things about Shark Racing.

If you plan on upgrading suspension let me know, looking for suggestions and example of what other owners are doing.

Depending on price, I might lease a GT Sport, especially since this will be my first Hyundai. If I love it then I'll just buy it at the end of the lease. If I lease, I probably won't do any mods until I purchase it, which might be good since it will give some other vendors a chance to develop parts for the car. I hear mixed things about Shark Racing, but only with respect to customer service. I haven't heard anything negative about the parts themselves.

That being said, the Elantra Sport I drove stickered at $23K, but with incentives and rebates you could snag it for around $17k. If something similar is going on with the GT Sport, then I'll probably just buy it outright. It that happens, we'll definitely be talking about some aftermarket upgrades.

I doubt the GT will go for around $17k, but a sticker price of around $23k after incentives is still a steal for the GT depending on what trim your heart is set one. What's a goof estimate for the GT Sport?

Once it's sub $25k, I think it'll be a good price. But if that's going to be a price point at sticker (goof estimate), what would you guys anticipate spending, or better question, what would be the most you would spend on one of these OTD (out the door) pricing?

I'm willing to (but will try not to..) spend up to $28-29k for a EGTS Ultimate. I spent $26k on my 2014 Elantra Limited w/tech. Although that did include an extended Hyundai factory warranty. Considering the Tech that is included I expect it to pay a bit more. The Kia Forte 5 sx w\tech package lists for around the same price. So that my best guess on where it will be priced anyway.

So that's not a bad estimate at all for an out the door price. For something like this under $30k out the door, I think it's well worth it completely. Good performance, nice features, and killers looks.

I think I'd have a hard time dropping any more than $25k out the door. While Parteklman is completely accurate that a Kia Forte5 SX with tech package stickers around $28k to $29k, dealers in my area are giving about $6k off in incentives, so they're actually pricing out around $21k to $23k. Add to that the fact that you can get an Elantra Sport for $20k or less with incentives (same engine with, from what I've read, a more aggressively tuned suspension), and a VW Golf GTI S can be purchased for $24k, it's going to be hard to attract a whole lot of buyers, imo, with a price point anywhere near $30k.

Don't get me wrong...I love the looks of the GT Sport, and would be willing to pay a little more than I would for the other models I've mentioned in this post. But I don't know if I'd pay $5k more, especially since the performance numbers will be the same or a little less than those other models. I would assume that the GT Sport will not be as fast as the Elantra Sport due to increased weight, and the VW just has too much power in the GTI trim to consider it equal, so the closest you'd probably get, from a performance perspective, is the Kia. I like the rear suspension set up in the GT Sport more than the Kia, but since it's a daily driver, in my case, and will probably see some spirited driving but no real track/autocross duties, I'm not sure how much more I'd pay for the rear suspension. I really hope it comes in at $25k or less, because that will make my purchasing decision a little easier. Just waiting.

On a positive note, my local dealer did contact me to tell me that they are expecting some GTs to arrive in the next 4 to 6 weeks. He believes that they are MY 2018 but is still trying to verify that for me. I'm a bit skeptical since no concrete pricing data has been released nor can you build a 2018 on the Hyundai website, but if I'm wrong, hopefully we can clear up some of these questions in the near future.

4-6 weeks really doesn't seem too bad when looking at overall time lines and how long we typically have to wait for new vehicles in a whole.

Can't disagree with you on those GTIs though, they're some quick puppies.

An extra $5,000 to get the Elantra GT Sport with an automatic transmission doesn't seem too bad but that's depending on what kind of extra features it comes with. If it's just the engine and multi-link then I may as well get the entry level with automatic and add on a lot of options.
