We all can't live our lives a quarter mile at a time.

An Infinity is too exclusive, so he'll have to slum it in an R-Spec.

You pretty much summed it up yourself... You are indeed a VERY unique breed of human. Let's not forget you're in a C6, arguably one of the least desirable interiors for a performance car out there. While the R Spec may give up a triny bit of HP (I'll give you a good amount of torque), for someone who has kids and needs the room and 4 doors it's an awesome choice. And it has hands down a far, far superior interior to your car. So I'd use "down grade" lightly there fella otherwise you'll loose even more credibility than you already have.

Better late than never. Sorry guys, Nick had some things he needed to take care of so I got the car a little later. Snapped a few shots on my iPhone before the hour trek home. Once the weather clears up in the next few days, I take some better shots. Nick took shots with his DSLR and promises to post in W&W.

Nick did Xpel on the entire front (bumper, full hood, quarter panels, mirrors) + Opti Coat the entire rest of the car.

Other than the rear badge I put on while I was there, I still have to:

Install rear lip spoiler
Install Genesis wheel center caps
Hardwire radar detector
Install Genesis airbag
Maybe some work to the exhaust to give it a bit more throaty sound. It's sooo quiet. Looking at Dynomax VT mufflers.






This was while Nick was finishing the front so the tow hook cover was off.

Thanks ST. You pretty much summed up my reasoning. It's the perfect car for me and that's where I'll end it. I've finally decided it's not worth the effort.

He really did a nice job of detailing it, those are great looking cars. You got what they say "the best bang for your buck".

Congratulations NSXNEXT! It must feel good to finally be in the car you've wanted all along. The day the break-in period is over and you bury the throttle for the first time will be one to remember.

Reading and comprehension >> you. We were talking about vs. a CTS-V not my fully modded (int/ext/performance/audio) C6 vs. Genesis (that's a laughable comparison).

I was just being a douche just like NSXNEXT has been in a bunch of my threads. Funny how so many of you get your panties in a bunch when I'm a douche.

Anyway, NSXNEXT, good luck with her. Looking good.

You confuse you "being a douche" with you actually being a moron.

You're funny. You are one of these guys I call an "internet genius." You have the education level of a 5th grader, but behind a computer you're an astrophysicist that won the national spelling bee. You're a loser man, honestly.

Love that avatar, Sar.
The Genesis has come a long way. Gorgeous car...and already on the path to proper maintenance and ownership. Nice!

if he was trolling, he was pretty gentlemanly about how he went about it. Nice C6 too.

Yeah the Charger was one of the last cars I test drove. I loved the power but the exterior styling was just not for me.

Which rear lip spoiler did you get?

I had this one and thought it turned out pretty decent -

Yup that's the one. I think there is only one style for the sedan.
