Seriously guys,
It isnt ugly as hell or else I wudnt be having one!!!
I was considering Mustang, Eclipse or Tiburon.

Settled for the latter becoz of the total cost of ownership.

Its easy to call something crappy coz u havent driven it or tested it.

Swear I used to dislike tiburons coz it was a hyundai. Lol!!!

But after 2000Km of driving. I have something else to say.
It does pretty good for a car this cheap. (Compared to 350z, Evo, Boxter etc)
Especially the handling.

Once again, the car really doesnt look bad and it has design clues from so many other cars.

Well why u want a coupe...
To show off, to be sporty, and customize.
This car does help in both.
Not to forget the aftermarket support its got.
Check NewTiburon.com (U will know the U.S crowd following the car)

Seriously if this car is launched in India with a decent price tag...
ITs gonna kick lotsa other cars out.

I remember driving the Tiburon in India back in 1999. Hyundai was doing a road show and our local dealer had a yellow Tiburon, an XG sedan and something else. The cars were meant to sit in the showroom but since the local dealer was a family friend, they sent the Tiburon to our home for one evening. It wasn't a great car by any stretch but considering it was one of the more unique vehicles on the road, it did get a lot of looks and appreciable nods.

Honestly, I hate the looks of all models before 2005, I agree the 04 and 05 are exactly the same... but the headlight on 04 is really terrible...
Dont want to even talk about the old coupe which i still cant digest.
