Here are some current pics with the few things I have done so far.

Pic 1. Shows Tinted Windows and Sunshade

Pic 2. Shows Sunshade, Digital Video Camera and Visor mounted Radar Detector

Pic 3. Shows the door striker cover which is on all 4 door strikers

Pic 4. The additional black floor mats

Pic 5. Shows my Volt Gage, Clock, Calendar, Alarm Clock, A/C duct Temp, In Car Temp display with blue backlight. The wires will be hidden after it is properly installed. - I use the outside temp sensor to monitor A/C temp out the duct instead. Pic 5 also shows the 16GB Micro USB drive I use to store music on.

Pic 6. Shows the LED License Plate lights

Pic 7. Shows my current trunk setup with complete Emergency Kit, Snowbroom/Squeegee, Floor net, First Aid Kit, Jump start box, and bumper protector. This setup will definitely change.

Pic 8. Shows my digital tire checker, Accident Kit, iPod cable, Seat Belt Cutter/Utility Knife/Window Breaker, Gold magnetic drain plug and my UltraGuage with mount

Pic 9. Shows my Stickers, extra alarm horn, some sunroof mood lighting, trunk 12v accessory outlets - all of which need to be installed

Pic 10. Shows my Blind Spot Assistance Kit w/GPS sensor to be installed, some bulbs for high beam and fogs if I like the look and strength, and the subframe bushings from Shark Racing I removed from the Sonata and am going to try and use on the Azera.

That ought to get things started for now until all my parts come in.

Sounds like a lot of extra stuff. Not criticizing, because I have put more than $10k into my Jeep Wrangler so it is more off-road capable (see below), but I just don't have that itch with the Azera.

If I can ask a couple questions,
What's the door striker cover for ?
And also the digital video camera ?

I never saw the point of double floor mats, and don't like the look, but I like extra gauges, but not sure I'd wanna give up that compartment for gauges I've never had on a car.

I add weather proof floor mats to my Azera in the winter time. Keeps the OEM mats clean of the salt, snow, and juunk you pick up during the winter months. I usually just put them over the factory mats - so doubling up.

Door striker cover is a plastic decorative piece that covers up the mounting bolts of the latch

Video camera...who knows? maybe he has plans to drive his car in Russia :)

In regards to:
Floor mats - This is South Florida and we are about to start rainy season. The extra floor mats keep the originals dry and like new plus I can pull them out when I want the car to look nice.
DVR - This is South Florida with many elderly and uninsured drivers. Video evidence just seems to make sense here. Plus I might just catch a meteor streaking across the sky one day.
Door Striker Covers - They just look better than nothing at all
Steering Wheel Cover - I found this at Autozone. It matches the interior perfectly with the Carbon Fiber like covering and the black stitched surfaces. It's actually my favorite one to date.

My first part came in today. The FHM-Hyper Silver Metallic 12oz Spray can from Touch Up Paint and Accessories | AutomotiveTouchup . Time to paint the mud guards body color.

Thanks guys.

The only prep I did was clean/blow dry/wipe with alcohol/taped off the black part from overspray/then painted 2 coats of color/then sprayed 1 coat of clearcoat. The hardest part of the whole job is the screw on the rear mud guard which needs an angled screwdriver to remove and install.


The rear diffuser and spoiler are due here very soon. They were shipped express from S. Korea. I have seen both a black and Hyper Silver Metallic painted rear diffuser. I'm going to see how I like it black and make a paint decision then.

As far as Azera LED Sill Plates I'm still trying to find some.

Mud guards...

Jim, Very nice on the mud guards. I like the matching paint scheme as they seem to blend and become one with the body. I may give that a try.

Funny how the striker covers seem to add so much being so little. I like mine. Great job with your mods. Keep up the good work.

....and not one of you have said anything about the wife's Beautiful Genesis Coupe in the pics. It's a lease so other than front and rear wing emblems I haven't touched it. We haven't even tinted the windows. I would love to mod that one!!

Didn't notice that the first time around. Love the look of the coupe and thought about getting one but fell more in love with the Azera.

Question on the 2014 - using with iPhone, does it still require the dual Hyundai cable, or can you use the regular Apple cable?
