So I bought a Gencoupe


... and now I want a better one lol
Anyone with experience care to help me decide on a 09-12 or '13 and up Genny? (I forgot the acronym someone help me out here) Are the newer ones that much better? I'm not sure that I don't actually prefer the front end on the older models.

I'm going to sell mine and buy another with the sunroof and Infinity sound system before I get stoooopid modding it out OR maybe one of you guys can save me the trouble and sell me your ride? Any takers??? PM me if your interested :grin:

I've got a red '12 Track, 3.8L MT.
New clutch/flywheel (single mass) and brake pads on all 4 corners installed the same day, about 2000 miles ago.
12K and you can drive it home to TX

Are you looking at the 2.0T or the 3.8? What do you plan to do with the car?

I previously owned a 2010/11 (can't remember) Gencoupe and currently own a 2013. My vote would be for a 2013+ model. Hyundai made multiple improvements including higher base power and a better transmission system. Do some looking around this forum and you'll see a lot of transmission complaints on the older models. I for one had several transmission issues on the older coupe, but none on this one.

The chassis codes are bk1 for the 09-12 and bk2 for the 13+ haha, the bk2's are supposed to be a lot better in terms of modding because of the updated gdi motors as well as having 10x nicer interiors. The only beneficial reason for getting a bk1 instead is simply personal preference of the older front ends. But you gotta deal with less hp, worse tranny, and cheaper interior. i would also try to get a hold of a track edition as well so you get the LSD and don't get the itch like me to do the $2k+ upgrade from the base model's open diff. Hope this helped a little bit!
