Picked up my 2021 Phantom Black Sonata 1.6T Limited Edition ride last night. ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!

This is Sonata number 7 for me and the family. My wife gave our son her 2015 after his 2015 was totaled. I gave her my 2018, and I got a new 2021. Musical car shuffle at its finest. Now to find a way to get all the personalized tags transferred (looks like it will not be as easy as I had hoped).

First mod, tinted windows.

Yep, I have to do the tag transfer as well. I had to make an appointment in September for a November date so I could transfer tags from my '16 Sonata that my HS senior drives. I wish it were simpler. I actually made 2 dates just in case I ran into an issue with my work schedule. We are now full Hyundai as well since I got the wife a Palisade.

Welcome to the DN8 family.

I called DMV just to get some info. Got a recorded message that all 230 lines were busy and to call back later. I've called a total of 10 times already. It's ridiculous.

Welcome! I think the most impressive part of your post is that she took the 2018 and let you get the new car.

Welcome! Love my SEL plus with tech.
Thanks, I'm surfing between this sub forum and the one for the 2015-2018s. What's up with the oil filter? Is it really a canister type with a removable filter?

There was never any doubt about that, If anyone is getting the new car, its going to be the person that is paying for ALL OF THEM.

I have added the splash guards and the reversible cargo tray for the trunk. Also got the console tray organizer. Nothing else is pressing. Would have loved a darker tint but Virginia rules are quite restrictive. Now to get my tags/license plate transferred, waiting on DMV to update their system. Guess that will be a month long wait.

Hit 1000 miles today. Wow, that was fast. Absolutely love being behind the wheel of this car. Still waiting on DMV to update the records so I can transfer my tags. Getting an appointment is a joke; first appointment is sometime in February.

So far, I've tinted the windows, added reversible cargo tray, console tray, glove box light, splash guards, LEDs in the backup lights, trunk, and license plate lights. Once the plates are updated (personalized) I'm good to go.

First oil change at 639 miles (to get rid of any thing in there after the break in period) was pretty easy, just a few more steps with the new oil canister, filter element, etc.
