Do you literally just come on here to try and defend buying a Hyundai?

Ah, I apologise. I didn’t realise the ‘other cars’ section was specifically for the brand snobs to come on and whale about a car they haven’t even driven.

Read my previous posts, I joined a while back, with an interest in the site and BMW.

I’ll take your opinion onboard once you’ve either gone and read a few reputable reviews or driven the car itself, then we can have a sensible discussion...

My opinion is you're solely here to try and persuade people (mainly yourself) that you've made the right decision buying a Hyundai. Unfortunately for you, it's a fact most of your posts have been in this thread and this forum.
I can understand though, I suppose most Hyundai owners don't know how to use a computer. I think you can find some other owners in your nearest doctors surgery, bingo hall or garden centre.

Let's stop the narrow-mindedness.

On paper and from the reviews, the i30 N is a good little hatch and a good first entry in to the genre by a manufacturer who's never delivered anything like it before. It's the work of Albert Biermann, so those who know what he's worked on in the past will know it's not something to be overlooked. It's also had input from the Hyundai WRC team.

You'll forever get people who are incapable of comprehending change automatically say that it sucks because it's a Hyundai. The important thing is that if you enjoy the car after a test drive, you like the looks and you can afford it, who cares what these people think?

You're more than welcome to post in the 'Other Cars' section about whatever other cars you want. That's the idea of it. Some of us just like cars, no matter what the badge is stuck to it.

Now be civil and respectful to each other!

The Hyundai is a good car by all accounts. The Peugeot 308 GTi 270 is also a good car.

There is only 557 308 GTis on the road. That's both models added together.

Even with a limited supply prices still plummet. At 18 months old they are practically half price. Sadly the very same will happen with the Hyundai making it an expensive alternative.

Sensible second hand buys though. Same for the Kia Ceed GT/Stinger (with 7 year warranties).

Wouldn't entertain buying any of them withing the 1st 3 years though, financial suicide.

Any thought of a sensible reply to this was disregarded with the 'age' context you so hilariously refer to.
Given that the average age of the owner of a BMW to a Hyundai only differs by 3 years I'd go and grab a digestive and have a lie down, Deal or No Deal will be on shortly :lol:

I agree, just leasing myself - have a much better idea of how sensible ownership would be after 3/4 years.

Out of curiosity, what do they cost to lease?

I got 350/month over 3 years with a 6month deposit. Prices varying between dealers though. Hyundai haven’t offered any initial launch contribution so it’s all down to the individual dealer on what they get to.

£14350 is a lot of money for a 3 year lease.

You can lease a BMW M140i Shadow edition with Auto and metallic paint for £9200 over 3 years just now.

Paying 56% more for a Hyundai with a list price of £28k against a BMW with a list price of around £38k just doesn't work for me.

All this modern financing has made a lot of cars unattractive. I can't see many people going for a Hyundai at the prices quoted.

The only thing I've said about it is that it looked strange in person when I saw one the other day. My point was you only seem to come on this forum to try and defend your decision to go for one, which is factually correct.
I don't need to read reviews about the car or even drive it to state that fact, I don't know how that's even relevant to anything I've said in this thread?

I'm pretty confident if you could get insured an a 140 then you wouldn't want to be paying more per month for a Hyundai either, just like most people. No matter how much you try and praise it, it's still not a good financial decision.

Edit - I should add actually, I got some offers on Carwow for one a few weeks ago, the fact there’s no auto rules it out straightaway for me. But also the fact that back then I got 4 offers with 0% discount and one with about £500 off. It’s almost like they don’t want to sell them.
