Welcome to the forum.Hi everyone! I'm glad to have the privilege of joining this forum to make friends, learn more about these cars, to give positive advise, and just being a part of a Sonata community.
Thanks for the welcome everyone. I just purchased a pre-owned '11 Sonata GLS last month & am truly overall impressed by this purchase. Here are a few pics. So far I've upgraded to louder, less moped sounding horns & added a few chrome accent pieces. I plan on tinting the windows next week, while on a roadtrip that I'll be on. Other future upgrades will include a single 15" subwoofer with amplified rear speakers and some chrome rims. although not sure what size of rims I will go with, but nothing too big.Welcome to the forum.
Are you are you a sonata owner currently or what? if you are, post some pictures of your Sonata!
Thanx, not all cars look good w/ Chrome but '11+ Sonatas do. I added more chrome to accent the car, but may have "over done it" w/ rear bumper reflector trim.lol
The grill insert is the "TIGRIS 3.0"What is that insert in the grill?
Thanx, not all cars look good w/ Chrome but '11+ Sonatas do. I added more chrome to accent the car, but may have "over done it" w/ rear bumper reflector trim.lolI agree that the cars to look good with chrome, but over the years I have grown to not like chrome that much.....I really prefer the matte black or CF look more these days, but of course it all comes down to personal preference.
So, you ever thought about lowering it?
I don't blame ya.....it is your car, so anything else is just opinion from anyone else. If you are going with 20" wheels, and maybe more of an offset, you will be even happier with the springs.@Coastiehog, I haven't had vehicles w/ chrome on them for a while, so with this one I wanted to keep Hyundai's chrome theme going. I'll probably stop w/ the theme after I buy wheels, once winter passes. Then depending on the stance of the car I may decide to lower it, so yeah I do like the lowered stance look to these Sonatas. My previous car was a white Chevy Monte that was blacked out, audio sytem, black 20's & all so w/ this I want to keep that clean look to it.
Do you have any pics of your car on this forum? just curious

Yeah, the D2 racing springs is all I put on there. I agree that the CF would look good with the silver! Going to start experimenting with the wrap myself sometime after Christmas I think......maybe sooner if I can.
The chrome does look good on white, and I agree that if you are going to black or out.....do it ALL!For me personally, I like the chrome on these Sonatas. My white Sonata was loaded with it including the badgeless grill. If I'm going to black out a car, I would go 100%, but with a white car chrome looks good. In the photo below I have Eibach Pro Kit lowering springs in it. Not sure yet what I'm going to do with my new one yet. Lowering springs or coilovers, that is the question!
I've always had thing for white cars, specialy w/ chrome... THEY [email protected]@K [email protected]@D, imo. I would also go w/ the springs myself, for the simplicity pov. What website or where did you get them from. I still haven't mailed off my wish-list to Santa & I'd like to place them on that list, lol. Thanx @Torchbearer, That was a gorgeous car u had, what color is the new one? just curiousThe chrome does look good on white, and I agree that if you are going to black or out.....do it ALL!
As for the springs or coils......I vote coils for the simple fact you can put it where you want and even do the alignment yourself for the most part. I bet I can get you under 8 for a set
