Check this store - The Korean Car SpecialistsJust picked up my first Hyundai and am very pleased with the car. I live in Canada and am having a hard time finding any reputable stores dealing in performance parts. Is the model just too new? Any help would be appreciated.
December is right around the corner, since you live in Canada, do you plan on sticking with the all season tires it has or are you planning to buy a dedicated set of winter tires?I'm picking up a Sport DCT in Dec when my current lease ends, will be purchasing so I'll be looking for mods after a while. Pretty excited to be owning and modding again after leasing my last 2 cars.
Hopefully there will be more modding choices in Vancouver and at least the USA.

I've always gotten away with all seasons on my previous FWD cars, only needed snow tires on my G35 and C250 Coupe I had before. Last year was crazy ice packing underneath new snow though so I've been scrambling to assemble a winter set together.
I picked up used 2015 Mazda 3 wheels from a salvage yard for $300 yesterday, which are 16x6.5 with same bolt pattern, center bore and +50 offset. They were in great condition with only 1 wheel with slight curbage in 1 spot. Today I found a set of Blizzak WS80 in 205/55/16 with 11/32nds and 10/32nds (new is 11/32nds according to Tirerack specs!) on Craigslist for $450. Just have to find a cheap place to mount/balance and I can put them on myself in the garage with a hydraulic jack. I have the WS80s (new from Costco during the $70 instant rebate) on my minivan in 17" and they are great so far for the first 2 weeks.
I haven't found any sites yet that are selling stuff for this car but I'm not in such a hurry now after dropping $800 to prep for a car that I won't pickup till the 17th! :crying:
Maybe start small with the Salusy center console organizer and then look for some window visors for rainy Vancouver.
Where did you get the exhaust and how does it sound? I'd like a bit more growl from the pipes but nothing excessive.
Here is a clip from few weeks ago. It was made to show how BOV sounded, but you can also hear the JunBL exhaust as well.Also interested in knowing this although at this point I think going custom is what i will end up doing.
