k the NF sonata section is really dead these days..... lol, i pretty much got the idea from the YF section to at least get the hype going in our section cuz its so boring lol....

any interesting or funny story to tell regarding your nf sonata, welcome to share, here ill start

whenever i go somewhere like car meets, work, or any other public places EVERYONE has no idea what my car is, they are always confused and look at it like its some sort of a ufo... "what kind of car is that?" or sometimes when actual enthusiasts look at my car they compliment me countless times but also ask "what made you mod a sonata?!?" i can actually understand this because whenever i go to my local seasonal revscene meets, im the only hyundai sonata out of 600 modded cars.... and i express the hidden beauty of the sonata <3.. wow that sounded corney LOL, actually the funny thing is, there is a black sonata v6 that runs around in my town that has clear cornered headlights, black rims, tinted lights, and ixion type grill like mine (Vancouver), if you ever see this PM [email protected]#[email protected] like to see, like to meet

Sonata vs pothole x 2... pothole wins, tires gets replaced
Sonata vs metal recycling container... recycling container wins, rear windshield gets replaced

Haha I feel the same. I haven't seen any hooked up Sonata's in Washington either. I occasionally see one with tinted windows or something. I'm also looking for some 19" gen wheels but I might just wait a year when my brother picks one up once he gets commissioned as an officer.
I'm going a little different way with the look of my Sonata though. Trying to go for a luxurious feel, maybe VIP. Small cosmetic changes are already working since some of my friends think I drive a nice car. Weirdest compliments I've gotten are "what a cute car" and "is this supposed to be a sports car"...
Overall I'm happy with what I've been able to do and make my Sonata stand out of the crowd.

Next to come, some HIDs for Christmas and tint or spoiler in the summer. Need to save up for a drop and wheels.

LOL typical ricer excuses huh?
after losing a race: "yeah i knew i was gonna lose but wait till i get a turbooooo" or "road was slippery" or "i missed a gear" or "VTEC didnt kick in this time"

BORING ALERT!

my story..

my 07 silver 4 banger gets me to work in traffic and does it with a smile. I filled up my 2nd tank and got 430 miles out it! Impressive! I used to have 2 Jeep Cherokees before this so this is a welcomed change. Doesn't kill me to fill up and drives all week like a camel and doesn't complain.

Up next for my new love, wheels, tires, stereo upgrade and a rear slim spoiler to liven it up a bit

love my Sonata :)

sorry for the boring story lol

On the way to the office from a meeting this morning I found myself driving in a Sonata NF convoy: 4 NFs lined up on the road, me white, the others black and 2 silvers.

Can I get the 1st prize for best story on this thread?

Thanks for the info. I checked it out before but i only see the rims you carry on ebay. Im actually looking for 19' rims, The one that RiceR has on his. I see you're from Brooklyn....Thats whats up. How do you feel about the new New York License Plates? The Orange/Blue Plates?

i know that people in korea, when they order the gen coupe 19's they order 4x rear wheels. (19x8.5) all around, with that setup that stance look awesome from the front and they just add 10-15mm spacers for the rear to give the flusheness more.. just thought i should give out some ideas
