I was thinking to myself that there aren't hardly any good body kits for the 04-06 tibby and barely a bit more for the years before. The reason I've decided must be because hardly anyone wants to change the core look of their Tib, due to the fact that they are out of the box bad *** stylewise. Perhaps the new 2007 model was made to look the way it does to encourage demand for body kits.

im pretty sure its more about supply and demand than the actual styling of the car. hyundai wouldnt make a car ugly just so manufactures will make body kits for an ugly car that wont sell well because the car is ugly.

I didn't exactly say that the earlier models were as good looking as the 04-06 models. It's more a joke anyway about making the 07 look lame. I don't know why sometimes things are taken so seriously on the fourm anyway. Maybe I should have thrown in a rolling eyes smiley

I think all the tiburons were nice in their own ways. Okay, 2002 model was quiet ugly and slow, and ******.

I liked the first one out, they were really small and light, so not much power needed to make it fast.

I think the most nicely done model is 05~06. The headlights could look better little smaller, and rear tails need to be all red or something. Other than that, it's really nice body.

If I had money and time, I would shop the roof line be three inches, slant the rear section steeper, flatten out the front of the car by maybe two inches (that I wouldn't know how to do, but would look nice and better with three inch chop top, since front seats need to be drop down to the floor also). That would make tibby look so sexy.

Oh, and rear wheel drive

HEY, be nice to the RD's. Thats how I got into Tibs nonetheless.

Yes I'd say the RD's were ugly on their own out the box (2nd gens were REALLY way off course with the front and rear fascia revisions) but I thought they TOTALLY transformed with the (now out of business) Wings West Type W kit.

Here are a few old pics of my original Tibalonie.




Don't mind the big wing. It actually worked since the hatch on these cars slopped down to nothing it filled that area up.

She was a spark plug.
