I'm sure someone will be coming out with some sort of LED switchback replacement for it or something. Diode Dynamics is a company to look out for as they're known for making cool products like that! It's something I can live with for now though, I may end up wanting to smoke it later on with tint so it's not as noticeable though.

I'm hoping that the amber DRL's are only on the preproduction models. Cuz it really isn't a good look. Still wont stop me from buying one though. maybe.

Doubt they are DRLs but they're probably a parking light function along with signal. Something that is easily changeable anyhow so you should be alright.

Can't you just remove the intake reflectors? I assume they aren't wired to anything and just mounted there, unless it's illegal to take them off. Then you'll have to wait for some aftermarket white reflectors.

From all the videos I've seen they aren't reflectors, They are DRL's. If you look up YouTube videos of the 2017 I30 (SR) they are white LED's that turn amber for turn signal functionality. Although this might only be the case for Models that have LED headlights. Hopefully Hyundai will release more info on the EGTS sooner then later.

Well that solves that then, they are already switchbacks in there which means I don't have to touch those at all.

I'm actually trying to imagine what it would look like with foglights but there just isn't enough room there for it to look natural...

Well.. thank you for correcting me. That actually looks amazing because they're so small and unnoticeable. Hope they have aftermarket sets that come out with projectors or just full led like the crystal eye ones.

Heard they plan on coming out with an N Sport trim, if true that means it might get different front end treatment. I might want to pull whatever fogs or front end pieces come from that if i don't buy the full N trim or model.

For a bump in performance that I would anticipate the N-Sport trim to come with, it would be interesting to see how aggressive or sporty they get with it.

I was looking at the i30 N and I really dislike the grill. I'm hoping that it's just a test mule camo feature to throw people off.

That's the old test Mule The current version looks more like the 2018 EGTS But with the horizontal DRL's like the current Elantra Sport.

Ah, thanks for that. Okay yea, the new one does look a good amount better. Those calipers look really good though. I like how it has the N logo on there, a really nice touch.

From looks alone, I can't wait to see it next to the Fiesta ST and Focus RS, so far those have dominated the segment this N Sport version will sit in. Late to the scene but if they can get this right, Fiesta ST/Focus ST/Focus RS could have something equally as nice.

One of the reasons I'm probably going to lease and leave the car stock is these upcoming N division models. I think any new competitor to the segment will force the current segment leaders to keep innovating. Then I'll have the option to jump up a performance level if Hyundai keeps impressing me.

And as for the Fiesta ST, if you haven't gotten one, I wouldn't bother. I think 2014 was considered the best year (performance wise), but the new ones are moving to a turbo 3 cylinder engine, and I just can't wrap my head around that.

This 3 cylinder nonsense is really throwing me off lol. All of these tiny turbo engines are cool and all, but just makes me think of how much we could potentially be capped when it comes to performance gain.
