Bought my car at the end of August, and I've got to say I absolutely love it. I came from a fully bolted Speed3, solid motor mounts, lightweight flywheel, etc etc. The car was horrible to drive with the windows up. Constantly heard the noise from the throw out bearing and the mounts definitely didn't help. The N is so nice on the inside. Performance, I don't think it's even a comparison. My Speed was a fast vehicle. Highest numbers I ever saw were right around 400/380 at the wheels. I don't expect my Veloster will ever see those numbers unless flash tuning comes to the car. Handling, VN all day. I love the adjustability of the suspension. Ultimately, for someone who has spent years bashing on Hyundai I'm definitely eating my words. I love this car. I will say I have full intentions of fixing my Speed up in the next year or two and getting it running again so I can have a fun car and a daily. I'm very excited.
