Introduction...

I just purchased a 2013 Genesis Coupe 3.8, R Spec with 26K miles on it. Its got a bright red color and red leather seats. I bought it from a dealer in Missouri for $19k. First, did I over pay?

I have just driven it home (about 120 miles) last night and am still getting used to it. Over the years, I have had a 2013 370z, sports model, a 2010 370Z base model, a 2010, Mazda Miata, a 2006 350Z base model, and cars such as the RX 8, Honda Prelude etc.

Its different from the 2103 370Z, for sure. I cannot compare as far as speed and handling yet but interior wise, for a 6'4" guy, the new car I have is more comfy, has better audio and a back seat and trunk, so its got the 370Z in that regards. This morning, I drove to work but still getting used to the different clutch as I seem to turn my car off when I first start out at lights.

Have not yet read anything on this forum but I hope I am welcomed.

warm regards,

Welcome to the Forums, dont know what the differences are in sales tax and prices between the states and canada, but when i bought mine also used, however 2012-it was all in the same price range. roughly same mileage also and i love the drive of the genesis. might not be as peppy as the 370z though :P hope you enjoy the new car!

Welcome to the club! Hope to see pics soon, since that sounds exactly the same as mine lol.

I'd say you got a fair deal at that price, as long as it hasn't been beaten on by the previous owner(s). I've got the exact same car and color (with the 6-speed manual), and picked it up a year ago bone stock with 350 miles on it, and I paid just under 25k, US dollars lol, in MN.

Let us know your plans for that thing!

I live in the lower midwest. I used to have a set of Blizzaks on asset of wheels for driving in the winter on my 2013 370z but I sold it. I intend to use my gencoupe as a daily driver but don't want to buy snow tires. So far, the winter has been warm (temps the last couple of days in 50's) so am hoping I can get by.

Will post pictures soon.
