I've had 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe a few years ago. It was a very fun car and it's opened my eyes to Korean auto market. After 7 years I've decided to come back to Genesis but in a different class.
Don't know a lot about this vehicle yet, but looking forward to learning more with your help guys.

Cheers.

Seven years is a long time and so much has changed for the Genesis badge since you purchased one in 2010. The G80 has so much to offer and there's even a sport model. Which one are you thinking of getting?

Agree, current Genesis is absolutely different brand compare to what I bought 7 years ago. I feel like I had enough of fast and fun driving, now I just want to get something comfortable and good-looking, seems like G80 is one of those cars. I'll probably get G80 3.8 TECHNOLOGY, I love its 9.2” touch-screen navigation system and Lexicon® surround sound audio system.

Are you implying you actually got to see one in person? Already theres a lot of 2017 year model G80's on dealer lots so I wouldn't be surprised. If you did and are particular about audio quality, did it sound like a well tuned audio system? Would be interesting to see it get compared to the mark levison system found in the LS.

I have test driven this amazing car already! The Lexicon audio system sounds absolutely outstanding, however, I can't compare it to the LS' mark levinson system, just because I didn't have a chance to sit inside of that car. I heard that Mark Levinson is one of the best audio systems in the current market, is that true?

Hi Everyone, I just got into my new relationship with a 2017 G80 w/premium package. I bought it with 16,000 miles on her.
I was in a long marriage with a 2000 MB E-320 4Matic. I made it to a quarter of a million miles but as all cars do it was nickle and dimeing me to death. So far so good. I'm impressed with the technology. The 3.8 seems strong and pulls with its 311 hp.but drinks up the petrol. (I do a lot of city driving). I have checked out the thread about the creaky sun roof which I am experiencing. Seems when the body flexes you hear it. So I am assuming that I have to bring it back to the dealer. That's basically my question. It is still under the 5yr/60 mil warranty. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

Hence why I can't wait for hybrid versions that will hopefully create the effect of being a really scaled down McLaren P1 in sedan form if you know what i mean :D

Its a bit ambitious but very possible these days.
