white matte paint wont look good unless the finish is perfect.

xenons will be good. dont get them for high beam. only for low beam and fogs if you want.

make sure you get the sunroof installed properly from webasto since if its not it could leak and that isnt gonna be fun in mumbai rains. i say ditch this idea.

get suspension upgrade from koni/d2.

get a nice cold air intake k&n/green and a free flow with maybe a remus or magnaflow endcan.

for the wood finished fascia. why not stick those carbon fibre sheets. itll look pretty cool.

Default Sonata 1st Gen. Suspension Mod?

We all know the 1st generation Sonata had a reputation for a sickening ride at higher speeds due to the ultra soft suspension. But, is it rectifiable by putting on aftermarket shocks that are stiffer? How much would such a modification cost?

Getting stiffer dampers & springs for the Sonata will be easy as pie. Not only would they lead to better handling, but potentially, highway ride quality could also improve. The previous gen Sonata has way too soft a stock suspension that results in a boat-like feeling at 100 kph. Koni FSDs would be swell
