So you know you want to get a Genesis Sedan or Genesis Coupe. Will you be trading in or selling an existing ride? Or are you made of $$ and can afford two car payments and two insurance payments? :) As for myself I will be getting rid of two vehicles. I have two trucks that I don't need any more, a 2001 Chevy S-10 Extended cab 4x4 and my 2004 Nissan Titan Crew Cab 4x4. I love my trucks but I got tired of getting raped at the pumps back when gas was $4.50 a gallon and my trucks at BEST were only getting about 16-18mpg. Gas is much cheaper now but I know it will eventually go back up. I don't have a real need for a trucks anyways other than I wanted something that was all wheel drive. That is now handled by my wife's AWD Sienna van and we'll just take that to the mountains or beach. So anyways both my trucks are for sale and I'm gonna replace them with the Genesis Coupe. All my cars are paid off so I should have a nice down payment when it comes time to buy a GCoupe.

What about you guys?

I'm paying off the bimmer 1st, which will take 2 more years, giving Hyundai enough time to release the R-Spec version & direct injection I hope. Also, that keeps me from having 2 car payments. Yet, I get the choice of driving a 4dr or 2dr once I buy the GenCoupe.

I'm also keeping the Jeep, I'll sell everything I own before I let go of my Wrangler, but I'm going to sell the 65' Mustang. I just don't see me ever getting around to restoring it, I just got too many projects & they cost so much.

I'm not trading anything because dealerships won't give you anything for your trade. I will be putting down a large down payment though, unless I decide to pay cash. I've been saving a while & still got 2 more years to save...The upside of waiting for my GenCoupe...:rofl:

I'll probably sell my 2006 Toyota Solara V6 in 2 years. I'll buy a new Sonata or used Camry for my daily driver car (especially in winter) and the GT380 for summer. Hope they put DI in there before.

just picking up the coupe as a shop car. I have an '02 Axiom that is a money pit to say the least. I owe on it and will either pay it off and ditch it or keep both payments until the winter then ditch it. Either way, I'm leaning towards picking up a Tundra as a tow vehicle if the business works out at the end of the year for the '10 race season. The axiom will pull tow duty this season. Haven't decided yet on how i want to get the tundra but im leaning towards a lease since i'd hardly use it (besides race weekends).....

Its not really replacing anything. I have a '00 GTP which is my DD and a '07 GSXR750 so it will just be added to the stable at my house.

I did have the Evo but sold that but not to really replace it with the Genesis.

CANT WAIT!

I'm either trading in or privately selling my '04 Tiburon. Hopefully, since it is in good shape with only 30k on the clock, I'll get a decent amount over what I owe.

for me the genesis coupe is replacing my 95 volkswagen jetta 2.0
I had a '95 2.0 Jetta for like 4 years as a DD. GREAT car! Got 36-38mpg and was very reliable. No issues at all. Just regular maintenance. I sold it a year ago (almost to the day) with 170,000 on it for 2g's. The guy still drives it too so im sure its over 200k by now. :shifting:

I will be getting a Coupe. This car will just be a purchase through traditional financing and a small downpayment. Hopefully the economy doesnt suck so bad in a few months so that banks will still loan out money. I hear it may get tough to get any money even with good credit.

Well I'm definately gonna need to upgrade from my Accent. But I am in need of a truck as well. How much are you selling the Titan for Sabbasaun?
I'll probably sell it for around $13-14,000 depending if I do any mods to it. I'm think'n about adding an aftermarket exhaust and CAI. It is an '04 Crew Cab, 305 hp, v8 4x4 with about 44,000 miles. Never took it off roading or even towed anything with it. Pretty fast for a stock 5,000+ lb truck, i took it to the drag strip one day for fun and ran a 15.3 in the 1/4 mile. I've got some pics of it I'll post up in the for sale section.

I will be getting rid of my '91 talon awd and my '96 eclipse gsx shells which i have parted out for the most part still lots of misc parts around but alot of the big power adders have been sold. So the genesis will be taking an empty spot in the driveway.

I got my 2.0 from my uncle. He bought it in 1995. Most of the miles on it is highway miles back and forth from NY to montreal. Only has 86,000 miles on it. Mostly because it's been sitting in the driveway for about five years. It runs great and it hasn't let me down yet but I just want something new and you can't go wrong with the coupe
