Welcome to the forum @Drbwell
Congrats on the G80. Did you look at other vehicles before deciding to go with it?
What options did you go with?
Yes, I looked at a Acura MDX/RDX, Audi A6, and a few others in the SUV category. I always liked the look of the Genesis vehicles. So, I decided to go the sedan route. Love the car, but just found a bubble on the front Continental Procontact TX tire. Lost the air overnight. I called Discount tire and ordered Conti DWS06 for just the front 2 wheels. S I’ll be happy with them?

Five months late but it may help others here - I put Conti PureContacts on my G80 3.8 AWD last week and they are fantastic so far. I had new but "questionable" brand tires on the car when I bought it and always questioned the ride and noise in the car a little. I figured "It's a Hyundai at the end of the day - you get what you pay for...". Not anymore - the new tires transformed the car. I haven't pushed them from a handling perspective but that's not how I drive this car. I can tell you they are confident and quite up to at least 100.

For months late yet it might help other people here - I set Conti PureContacts on my G80 3.8 AWD last week and they are phenomenal up to this point. I had new however "problematic" brand tires on the vehicle when I got it and consistently scrutinized the ride and clamor in the vehicle a little.
You can buy sensible wristbands, like the solidified steel arm band featured here, on Internet stores, for instance, our own, which convey a wide scope of ladies' embellishments like rings, decorations, overpower wristbands, silver arm gatherings, genuine silver arm gatherings and gold cross additional items.

How are your exterior trim pieces around the windows? Water spots or clear? I am looking for something to clean mine and make them shiny again.
I also recently purchased a 2019 G80 Sport.
I have read that the exterior window trim is a problem. It deteriorates and looks bad overtime. Genesis Tech at dealer told me to get some rubbing compound. I plan to buy this and will update on if it works.


Also, SUPER BUMMED about the connected services discontinuing. What a bunch of crap. They put in cheap 3G connectivity and now I know why Genesis is so much cheaper than Mercedes & BMW.

Another note from the Genesis tech, BG fuel injector (or any kind really) cleaner is a must. They get gunked up easy. I have already noticed a average mpg increase after 1 week after treatment.

Thanks for the tip on the injector also bummed about the connected services ending this year right (date)? Also I had a Volvo s90 and it remote started in 10 sec and kind of disliking that the Genesis is about a minute to start.
