Hey.
As in the title. I'm in Australia. As you may already know over here the Elantra GT is called the Hyundai i30 SR.
I picked mine up just over a week ago as a manual Demo model with just over 3500ks (2100 miles)

So far I have ordered a new 3' induction pipe. I already have a pod filter here ready to go.
Would like to do the turbo to intercooler pipe & intercooler to throttle body pipe. Will be looking at changing the rear muffler for a straight though muffler.

I also have quite a bit of stereo gear to put in, Just waiting on a few installation pieces to be delivered..

Unfortunatly, When I take a photo of the car, it looks more like a red.. But it is in fact Phoenix Orange. Which really sparkles in the sun.

Nuances of a car's paint is hard to capture on film, but your new Elantra GT is a looker all the same! How much did you end up paying for the demo?

Congrats on getting an Elantra GT and even more so for modifying it so soon. Often I see people holding out on making changes like that so soon.
Are you planning to get an ECU tune as well?

Ended up paying $24,500 AU. Which normal drive away price is around $29,500 AU. It did come with floor matts :laugh:
I may need to use a proper camera, rather than just my phone to take photos. With a bit of manual adjustment.

I don't mind changing a couple of things so soon. Our Aussie version is so much more quieter than the US version. I don't want it to loud, so no muffler delete.
At this stage I'm not planing on getting a ECU tune.. With the couple of things mentioned. The factory warranty should be all good..
When it comes to servicing, I'll be putting the original intake back on. As it's only a 15 min job tops..

Welcome to the forum man, and congrats on the new GT! It definitely is hard to see the orange in those photos, but regardless its a nice finish. What sort of changes are you planning to make with the stock stereo system?

Hey. I've pretty much got everything to go. Just more about finding the time to get it started..

Iv'e got a 4 x 100w amp to run the front splits. Which will be run in active mode from my electronic crossover. So that each woofer & tweeter get 100w each.
Have a Hifonics 1600.1d sub amp that will run in 2 ohm, so around the 1000w to a Rockford Fosgate Punch dual voice coil 12' subwoofer in a ported box.
Morel Tempo Ultra 602 6.5" splits for the front. Rockford Fosgate low line converter to take the speaker outputs from the head unit so it goes into RCA for the electronic cossover.
And of course "0" gauge power & earth cable to power it all.. And a custom board under the rear hatch shelf to mount the amps & crossover

So a bit of work there to do.

Good idea. From what I understand its that any aftermarket intake will impact how the mass air flow sensor responds to the system overall. Right then and there I can imagine it being grounds for the dealer to void parts of the warranty. On the flip side getting an ECU tune helps those intakes to work how the should.
