Hey everyone, I just picked up my new 2018 Elantra Sport DCT yesterday and so far, I'm loving it. I have never been big Hyundai fan but I really like how the new Elantra looks and feels. I was initially trying to get the GT, but the closest one with the tech package was over 500 miles away and the price just wasn't right for the drive. I ended up trading my 2013 Dodge Dart SXT and left the lot in my new ES. So far, it has been a blast to drive, but I think I may make a few modifications/additions.

First thing will be some tint. I'm thinking probably a 35% for the sides and rear, and maybe just a blue tinted visor for the windshield. We'll see though. I have seen another red ES in my area with 15% all the way around and it looks pretty sweet.

Second, I'll probably be putting in a 10" sub in the trunk. I may try replacing the 8" that's already there first and try running it with a more powerful amp first but ultimately, a 10" would be ideal.

Third, I'll be removing the ugly dealer logo and probably play around with some plasti dip to see how the badges look in black. I probably won't debadge this one, but I haven't decided yet.

That's all I'm going to start with, but a muffler delete or swap with a high flow one may end up happening too, we'll see.

I'll be digging around the forums for the next few weeks to see what others are doing too.

Tint and elantra/sport debadge will clean her up nice. I personally wouldn't bring plastidip 100 yards of this car but to each his own. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it!

How does this compare with the Dart? I was considering taking a Dart for a test drive but didn't get around to it.
