What a great little car! It took me a while to find one in the price range I was hoping for but the wait was worth it. 2018 with 26k miles. Had a chance to do some spirited canyon style driving yesterday for the first time with it and I’m quite impressed. Brings me back to my Miata days in college.

Always liked the 17 style better but working for a Hyundai dealer I got a good deal on the current body style

Thank you! Is the general consensus on this board that a thicker rear sway bar is a worthwhile upgrade for the handling of this car as a DD?

Also, I have the dual clutch transmission which is a first for me. When I drive conservatively, it sort of feels like first gear bogs a little bit and then second gear kicks in with the turbo / boost. Is that normal? Maybe I’m not used to this cars particular quirks?

19mm or 22mm is sufficient on stock or stock size tires.

I got my car a few months ago and I'm still getting used to the DCT (coming from a CVT/auto on the wife's car), but yeah, 2nd gear has great pull...woot!
