    Interesting. Where do all those Model 3s live? Not in Calgary as I have not seen many.

    BTW G70s are quite a common sight in Calgary now.
    Not gonna lie, the first G70 I ever saw in person was the one sitting in the boutique store that day I went in. Had never saw one before that. A few days later, I saw one heading SB on QEII. First one in the wild.

    Isnít the lack of dealer the best thing about genesis?
    From a sales perspective yes. But from the maintenance side, not really. People want them going to a Genesis shop instead of a random Hyundai shop. At least that's what I see on the forums. Personally not a big issue for me. I don't think their sales model is changing with a stand alone dealership.

    People think their Genesis's are too good for a Hyundai mechanic?

    Well some say they want separate showrooms but consolidated shops. Some say they want a totally different showroom and shop so they simply don't have to deal with the Hyundai brand.

    I don't really wade into the discussion because I don't really have a preference. It may also be a 'We want more brand prevalence so build a Genesis dealership and shop' type of mentality. The sales manager I spoke with didn't really state a specific business need for it, other than just having everything on one property.

    Yah. Here's a recent article regarding Lincoln's push for stand alone facilities.

    It’s a marked difference. When my car comes back from Mercedes, it doesn’t smell like oil and is clean all around.

    When my $90K Ford comes out of the shop for a warranty issue (changing the sun visor) it smells like oil for days and has oily dirt foot prints all over the interior. It’s a massive difference.

    However, an oil change at Ford costs $150 and costs $400 at Mercedes.

    It isn’t the Hyundai mechanics, but it is the expectation of how clean the shop is.

    Hahahhhhaaaa. I'm so happy someone noticed. He got happy around the third beer in Denver airport yesterday. He's going to be an optimist for a while.

    Anyone purchased a g70 lately? Wondering what play room they have for pricing and for extras like 3M, foot mats, etc.

    Also, for owners on here, do you find the ride a bit boring? I don’t expect it to be RS3 good, but even an A class had a better ride to me.

    I thought there was zero room for negotiation because of their "haggle free" business model? I am not sure though.

    What did you think of the A class? I'm looking at an A250.

    That's what they told me, zero wiggle room.

    No wiggle on pricing for the car or accessories. hey are what they are.

    With respect to the ride. I do not find it boring. My only complaint on the vehicle dynamics is that I catch the transmission off guard, so to speak. It really does not shift as well as I would like, which sometimes feels like turbo lag, but it's just the transmission getting caught in the wrong gear.

    Aside from that, it's the standard complaints, smaller back seat, very small trunk. They did add the auto close on the trunk which is a great idea because the springs on that trunk are heavy and it can be a pain to close without slamming it.

    I see more Kia Stingers on the road than I do G70/G80.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I know there is a little bit of wiggle room as they're not charging me MSRP, but it's not much of a discount - about $1000. I guess something is better than nothing. It might also be because I'm willing to trade in my vehicle so perhaps they're just giving me a discount off of the G70 to make up for low balling me on the trade in haha. I hope they'd be willing to go a bit lower on 3M as $1600 seems quite excessive. Perhaps better to just do this from someone else though.

    Mitsu the A series impressed the hell out of me. I was a little bit stunned because it was the most underpowered car I drove by about 70 HP, yet it had lots of pep to it. The options add up quickly though. A decent one is going to get to $50K. The tech in the vehicle is outstanding. You should check it out if you're interested, I don't think it'll disappoint you. If they had an A35 right now for 60K I'd be getting one. My guy was telling me that he doesn't think the A35 will come here despite it being on the official MB website. He thinks it'll get delayed to the end of next year and end up coming as an A45. God knows though, there are plenty of people that know more about MB on this forum than I do.

    Thanks for the info Cagare. I'll make sure I can fit what I need to in the trunk before considering it. Might have to step up to a G80 for a little extra space.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. On paper anyway, it's currently #1 on my list when my lease is up in about a year - I think I can get it under $500/mo with zero down if I forego a few things I don't care about like LED headlights. Need to find time to give it a test drive soon. I love that a heated wheel and the good stereo are stand alone options - that is so rare.

    A35 is also what I really want, but I'm a very low KM driver and it ends up being too expensive.

    Word is the new G80 is being delayed. Was scheduled to be revealed this month. Looks to have been moved to Q1 2020. A major bummer for me.
    Article below speculates reasons. One of them is for marketing reasons around the GV80. Since SUV's are better sellers here in North America, they want the GV80 out first. Can't really blame them. The GV80 is still scheduled for reveal this year, possibly at LA auto show in November but I wouldn't be surprised to see a debut in South Korea.

    Article below needs to be translated.

    Fresh spy shot video of a GV80 without the heavy black camo. I believe this is the first spy shot without the proportion/lines masking camo.
